Okay, so today I went out and picked up a Fender Full Moon distortion pedal to use on the clean channel of my 6505+. Now, why would I use a distortion pedal with an amazing amp such as the 6505+? Simple. The 6505+, to my ears at least, doesn't get as buzzy or as nasty as I'd like for old school black metal. This pedal does it very easily, especially with the hi-treble maxed. Overall, for that sound, I'd say I'm VERY pleased with it as I now have two killer OD channels and a usable clean tone from the 6505+, but also a very nasty channel for my clean when I feel like unleashing the hatred. This thing does lo-fi VERY well and I've got it set for an early 90's sound from that era. I do apologize for being unable to post clips as I don't have a mic, but take my word on this that this thing does black metal VERY well. I've got all my bases covered now it seems, as I have that, a TC Electronics Eyemaster (which I'm going to be pairing later ) and the gain of the 6505+.
