Done a fair bit of reading about amps lately. Every amp review ever written, it seems, claims that Amp X "takes pedals well." So I've been wondering -- what would it sound like if an amp didn't "take pedals well"? I ask you, tone aficionados, is that a meaningful or meaningless statement? Seems to me like it all depends on what pedal you put in front of something. The only major difference (key word "major") I've ever heard between the amps I've played and used is that some deal with overdrive/distortion pedals a little differently, depending on how they complement (or don't) the amp's own overdrive. Beyond that, I swear I've never noticed a difference worth concerning myself over. But then again, I've never cared if I had an effects loop or not, so maybe I'm nuts. Open to that idea, too! How wrong am I?
