Do you keep the amp clean and let the pedals do all the work? Do you let the amp break up a little and have your drive pedals push it into distortion? I like the sound of my amp’s overdrive. I like to set up my amp so there is some grit if I dig into my guitar, but cleans up when I soften my attack. My problem is I can never get a heavier overdrive with a pedal that doesn’t sound fizzy or just a muddy mess when my amp already is starting to break up. I can get some heavier drive when I clean up the amp and just use a pedal, but them I’m missing out on some of the natural overdrive. Any advice? Currently I use an MXR Micro Amp (its a boost pedal) and a Timmy.
