If this is true, your amp sounds like garbage right now.I already have my Valveking gain, trebble and middle maxed out and bass on 5,
I also have the gain and volume boost on permanently because it sounds bad without them, I need the pedals to get what i want out of it.
This makes a lot more sense... This being the case, you do want a distortion and overdrive.the main appeal of the pedalboard for me is that I could take it to practice and hook it up to a different amp and get my tone. I don't like hauling my amp back and forth, and I don't trust anyone enough to leave my amp at their place.
I mostly play high gain stuff, but I also played in church for 4 years, so I know a lot about using a pedalboard to shape your sound and I feel you on that.the Boost would be used in the lead stuff, so the idea is to raise the treble and volume a little, I could always dial back the gain on the OCD. or get a MXR micro amp.
I guess most of you guys only play metal.
I mostly play metal, but I also play a lot of other styles.
