Totally true I'm afraid. My statement wasn't speculation, it's based on extensive experiments over the last 17 years and a professional knowledge of electronics theory. I'm not referring to low-grade stomp boxes either. Yes, you can pick up an old Gorilla practice amp for example and the distortion will be as good or better than a Metal Zone, but a typical guitar amp at low volumes can not match the distortion of a high quality processor unless you are using a Power Brake or similar manipulation type scheme.
