Do you prefer to get your overdrive tones from the amp or a pedal?
I prefer amp. Usually has a more rounded tone, bottom end. Of course it has to be a good amp.
Amp, but rarely am able to due to volume issues.
Blondes or brunettes... Seriously, this ? has been belabored ad nauseum.
Redheads of course!
And I agree...Amp vs Pedal = what ever works for you
Guess you're right, nevermind.
I like both... It just depends on the kind of music I am playing and what type of guitar.
But sometimes depending on volume requirements a pedal and clean amp sounds better
The combination of both
Always just amp. I don't buy vintage tube amps to stick diodes in front.
Use use both, with my guitars volume knobs. Very dynamic when you integrate a great amp set to break up, great OD pedals for boost and flavor, and control of volume/tone knobs to control gain
I prefer amp distortion. However I do have an old Marshall that I overdrive with an op-amp based pedal, which is now working really well.
As stated at low volumes pedals could get the tones easier but the amps distortion always sounds better to me...
Preference is for amp, but i use both.
For this reason, mine almost always comes from pedals.
I would say amps for me! Although my current band situation my amp is used as a clean pedal platform for a bunch of overdrives.....go figure.
