How many of you like to play with a really clean sound ? How many like a little or a lot of dirt ? Personally I can't do what I like to do without a little dirt, say Keith Richards/Paul Kossoff sort of mildish overdrive. For solos I like a little more gain than that but I'm not into mega levels of gain. I love power amp overdrive but it's too dependent on the amp, the room etc. I really love a nice combination of pre-amp gain with the power stage starting to kick. What about you folks ?
