    So far I like to set it up clean and hit a pedal for heavier stuff. I really like my BB Preamp. What else to try? Has anyone used a Box of Rock or an OCD? The OCD is hit or miss for me, so I am not sure I'll love it.

    Tones I love: Black Crowes, AC/DC, Gov't Mule and Zep.

    I like an OCD. HP. Gain at zero, Volume at 2 or 3 o'clock.

    There are also lots of great tones in the Fulldrive II, but it takes some more tweaking.

    Also, the Club 40 LOVES fuzz!

    OCD works well. I also like the RC Booster to boost the front end, to get closer to the LV55 sound. I think you'll find if you want to use pedals, get the amp volume up about 6, then kick in the pedal as needed. The amp will just be starting to breakup, but still a nice clean sound without the pedal. Of course, what speakers and guitar you use will affect the tone. This works well for me using a Les Paul when volume is a concern. If no concern, then get up to 8 or more and have at it!

    I like the boost channel of the Box of Rock, the overdrive sounds great as well. The important thing is to get the amp as loud as you can for the venue
    then add something over the top.

    Kar Krash or Barber DD w/mod board seem to be what makes my Germino happy.

    I like the Crunch Box with the Club 40...but then again, I like the Crunch Box with everything!
