Any substantive difference between the earlier version and the latest? Just cosmetic? Looking at some Badger 18 heads, just curious.
What I meant by good with a pedal is that wherever you set it, you add a boost, and it just gives you more, probably why they added a boost on the new one. It has a lot of good sounds between 9oclock and noon on the gain dial, it is all a matter of where you want to start.
With my current pedalboard I set the gain at 4 which gives a slightly-hairy clean tone, then use pedals for the rest.
