If you want sounds than buy a multi-effects pedal not a DISTORTION pedal. My point is that buying a distortion pedal counters the idea of getting a great amp which already has great distortion.

When you use the 2 tube screamers, you are only supposed to use the second one for solos. There are not many solos that require you to stop for very long peridos of time. It is used as a boost to cut through the mix.

it depends really, some tube heads might not have the type of distortion your looking for, i'm not sure why someone would spend money on a tube amp that they dont like the sound the dirty channel gives but anyways. i do use my mesa vtwin preamp for dist though, but i before i had a tube preamp, i had a s.s. head, and i just used a metalzone with it, istill have the mt but i dont use it, i've messed with it with my tube preamp and it sounds alot better than it ever did with my old s.s. head.
but not nearly as good as my mesa. so in some instances it may seem pretty dumb but in some cases like when i was trying to play metal on a freinds jcm 900 loaded with tubes out of an old fender, i went for the dist pedal because the amp had pussy sounding crunch for dist and almost no low end.

You can still get great distortion. Turn it up till it distortions. What the hell do you think you have to do to a JCM 800?

theres only so many different sounds you can get out of any particular amp, some give more than others. someone might not like the way a cranked jcm 800 sounds, i dunno. its just not completely "stupid" all the time.

Alot of the thickness of guitar actually comes from a bass, you moron. As atif pointed out to me before, the more distorted it is, the more muddled its going to sound. And plus, Fender's aren't made for overly high distortion. I've proven it.

And as DEAD pointed out, its a fucking Marshall JCM. Thats all the distortion you need.
