My guess would be that the use of pedals vs. amp gain is more of a question of genre.

What I mean, Daniel: don`t you play quite a lot of metal/progressive stuff? At least I prefer the main gain/tone to come from the amp it self, while Ivan: don`T you play a little more funk/blues/rock? In those cases, I as well like to experiment a bit with different pedals.

I`m mostly saying this because I have yet to find a good metal pedal, but the blackstar ht-series pedals sounds quite convincing

that's a good point, I definitely find an amp's dist more appealing

Although I play funk/rock/blues I would always choose amp's distortion if convenient and available (other than having envelope filter, analog delay, chorus, flanger, overdrive/booster etc...) cool.gif
I think the main difference in my preference is that I woudl prefer to get power tube saturation and overdrive the front end for sustain, whilst modern players would tend to use preamp saturation more. It's more of a vintage vs. modern amp question there, but tube ovedrive is without doubt the real thing.

hope it is okay to jump in ?
amps distortions do sound better, and when i record in the studio , i run that way
however in a live situation amps distortions, to me ,cause headaches
friends tell me dual recto 's rythm is outstanding, while their lead is weak ,so i would make sure youv'e tested them
if it is for live shows i would strongly think about muris's idea
but -if i ever buy another amp it will be a combo (easier to move).. if you look at a combo , make sure it is closed back that way it will sound more like a four-twelve cab-- to my ear anyway
i do however wish i could afford the axe fx cause that sounds like it would lessen complications - plus you would not have the expense of redoing your tubes every year
hope i didn't cause more trouble

If you are looking for that kind of metal tone and you want to buy a "real" amp then you should definitely go for the Rectifier, I am playing a Tripple Rectifier since 1995 and I would not trade it for any other amp in the known and unknown universe wink.gif I don't know any other amp that can deliver this monster tone and power, and I also only know VERY few other amps that are as consistent when it comes to their sound. Just take Marshalls for example, pick 10 similar models from one series and I seriously doubt that you will find two that sound the same (and before anybody gets me wrong, I am not trying to talk bad about Marshall here, I still have my old JCM 800), and many other companies have the same problem. Over the years I played many different Rectifiers all over the world and only one didn't sound good, all the others were great amps. However, if it doesn't have to be a real amp then I agree with Muris and would also recommend the Axe-FX Ultra, this gives you some great Rectifiers and tons of other great sounds. I didn't use mine live yet, well, I had no chance yet, our tour will only begin in september wink.gif But I definitely will put mine into my live setup.

thanks for the tips Marcus,

I'm definitely interested in the Rectifiers by Mesa.
