Do distortion pedals work well with tube amps? Or should I use a tube screamer?
Kinda new to the pedal stuff. I have an Orange Crush Pix series 35 watt combo tube amp, an Epiphone Special 2 GT and a Boss Super OverDrive. I was wondering if it's better to use a disto pedal on the clean channel or just keep the OD and modify it? And if I use the OD how would I change between that and a clean signal? The OD is pretty gritty which was one of two distos I want. The other I want is more cleaned up around the edges, something to play real chords on or possibly something to play punk with? Any suggestions of pedals would be greatly appreciated.
