Maybe not a terribly exciting amp all by itself, because it’s pure clean. But if you have pedals you like, this amp was built to be a platform for them. I was messing around with a Wampler Plexi Drive Deluxe yesterday with some commercially available clean profiles and they made it sound like garbage. Plugged into my DeVille ML and it sounded fantastic. So I profiled the amp and lo and behold, the pedal sounds great into the profile. All of my drive pedals do. Maybe yours will too, so give it a shot.
