I have been playing Fender amps and Fender flavored amps (Tone King Meteor 20) for decades. They sound spectacular and comfortable for gig level volume. But they mostly take low gain OD pedals (boosts). I realize that my vintage PR and Tone King have the 3D warmth that does not allow medium (non-metal) gain pedals very easily. I have bought 15 or more boutique and production pedals. I can't get that air moving symbiotic soloing at low medium volumes. Hard to turn the gain up with my two thick, Fender flavored, amps. Please recommend a non-Fender amp that I can use some gain at low - medium volume. I could use either a head or combo. Especially interested in on board attenuator types, 1/2, 2 or more watts. A time based effects loop would be a bonus and a direct out to record with. Would like to rock with the best bedroom level gain amp. Or Distortion pedal / Amp combined, recommendations.
