Primarily, I'm wondering how many of you guys plug your Gretsches straight into your amp?
For practice, pretty much most the time.

Dat's me! I usually my smallest amp---a Fender Champ 600. Only one knob, but it does go to 12. If I want to play with knobs, I use my AC15.
I twisted PA board knobs for forty years. I consider that work, and now, I'm retired.
I was cool with plugging straight into my amp for practice, right up until I got my Dyno Brain pedal. Now I find that I'm just not quite happy with my tone unless the Dyno Brain is on. I can go without any others, though, unless I am trying to emulate something.
there is never anything in between my Gretsch and my amp. everything I want to hear comes from the guitar or from what is built into my Blackstar Fly 3. have been playing unplugged a lot lately though.
I usually practice without plugging into an amp.
often .... and I don't call this low tech either
With the Mesa Boogie amps I use you don't actually need any pedals.
The amps cover about 100 tones fantastic from cleans, bluesy overdrive, crunch, distortion, high gain.
Plus reverb, EQ and solo boosters.
Me. As often as possible. And with any of my guitars. But it's not always possible when you play in a band and when a kind of sound is required - think wah, phasor, etc... No pedalboard : 2 or 3 stompboxes at max.
Plugged straight into the amp! Basically use the overdrive on the amp for gain and otherwise clear sound. I used to have a wah-wah pedal but it was lost/stolen many moons ago. I am thinking of getting a new one and maybe a compressor but right now it's straight to the amp.
Not only do I plug straight in to my amp, I don't even own any pedals,
But wait.......what about crazy long reverb ambient stuff? Delays?? Tremolo??? Wah???? Octaver????? Chorus?????? Flanger??????? Compressors????????
Practice none most of the time. Gig yes. But i can do without though.
I can and do on occasion.

Depends on amp But i been keeping it mostly to delay/ tremolo or one of those with a reverb pedal.
I do have a dyno brain coming though.
I practice with the same rig I gig with, meaning pedals, lots of pedals - though lately I’ve been practicing with just the Mystery Brain.
Sorry gang , I love to use pedals . I enjoy the different sounds .
But when it comes to " nothing in between " ...there is no sweeter sound to me than these gals
You, my friend, are in for a real treat!
