I was wondering, for those of you, like myself, who seem to use alot of 2 channel, non channel switchable amps, like a Matchless DC-30, Reinhardt 18 watt, or others that have dual inputs as well as some variance in pre-amp control. Do you use both channels and switch between them externally, or do you pick one, and use pedals exclusivly? The reason is I've been wondering if I'm complicating things using both channels. They do sound different (the amps above are my main babys) and I have a variety of pedals I like. But I've been wondering if you use both the "distorted" channels, and the clean channels, or do you get an overall good sound, and alter it with pedals and volume knob control, and ignore the second channel?
