If you had to pick a grab and go combo to use with a small pedal board for pop/rock gigs what would you choose?

i have not found a combo amp that takes pedals in front and in the loop like Budda's.

I would recommend a SDII 18 or SDII 30 1x12. Very light ( about 40 lbs ) as well.

I have a 64 Vibrolux Reverb with 10 inch vintage celestions that loves the Zendrive SE and the Hermida Distorion pedal. Carbon Copy pedal blends great with the Reverb. I think the speakers have a lot to do with it.

Without question, for me - a Carr Rambler. One of the most pedal friendly grab & go rigs I've ever played. Cathode biased 6L6 power section > 28 watt Pentode/14 watt Triode modes > Reverb/Tremolo. Fantastic build quality, tone, and lots of headroom given it's modest power rating.

I've always maintained that the amps that sound the best on their own are the ones that sound the best with pedals.

My AC30CC loves pedals, but it's 75 lbs. so I guess you can't call it "grab and go"

I find it the opposite lots of times. Some of my favorite amps hate anything more than light overdrive pedals.

an ac30 is a good example. An OCD let loose on those things sounds like mush.

Another vote for a Carr Rambler. As pedal frerindly as they come.

Dr Z amps are the best pedal platforms EVAR!

The Mazerati and Maz 38 Sr are my two favorites.

Peavey Classic 50 is a great match up with Pedals ..
Of course the Lonestar Classic... but that's twice as much dough ...

A Twin is very finicky about pedals ... so you have to trail & error with them
