Than how come I can't use my pedal with the distortion of the amp because it sounds way too distorted and mucky. I can only use my pedal with the amp if I use the clean section of the amp. Than it sounds good. I know you use pedals to connect to amp, but do you put your amp on clean mode or on distorted mode?
