Ok, ive had a couple OD pedals before to boost amps but never a straight up distorion pedal. I know you would generally run it into the clean channel right? Well then what about back in the days when people used distortion pedals into cranked up Marshalls? Those were anything but clean! Or did they go into the lower sensitivity inputs? And how much does the amp your playing through effect the sound of the distortion pedal? Do you maintain the overall dynamics of a tube amp if u use a good distortion pedal? You get the picture, im trying to figure out how all that stuff works. So flood me with info if u can!
