Thing is power tube distortion sounds extremely different from pre distortion. Pre distortion is most suitable for high gain metal, because everyone loves that compressed tone. But if you're a fan of those loose raunchy fuzzy sounds from the 60's and 70's, you really want powertube distortion then.

It's weird to see so many metalheads saying that you have to crank your amps to get good sound, when for popular metal-y tones the best results are yielded from a high gain preamp, without overdriving the poweramp.

Combining both yields spectacular results, and also spectacular sound pressure levels.
