Today, I'm shooting out the three GOLD STANDARD pedal platform amplifiers: a 1964 Fender Deluxe Reverb (6V6), 1969 Marshall Superlead 100 (EL34), and a mid-90's Vox AC30 (EL84), along with three GOLD STANDARD drive pedals: Marshall Blues Breaker (low gain), Ibanez TS-10 (mid gain), '85 ProCo Rat (high gain) - all in attempt to see which pairings work BEST with all the amps set clean and the pedals doing all the work.
Please share with us your favorite amp + pedal combos in the comments section! And, remember, this ultimately comes down to taste; however, I'll share what I'm hearing in the room and the things you should consider when determining possible clean amp and pedal combinations.
