    Re: Need a Good Distortion for Not Much $$$

    I have never ever had problems with any overdrive pedal that I own running in front of my POD XT or direct into my interface with amp sims. I don't see why a distortion pedal should not work with a Flextone. I have never heard of these things' inputs not having enough headroom. Unless you're running one of those like stupid hot clean boosts, this shouldn't be a problem anyway because distortion pedals are usually meant to be set at unity gain (roughly) with the clean signal.

    With the Flextone you don't get mic simulation from the Flextone's speaker. You do get mic simulation from its directs outs, but not from what you're hearing from the amp alone. You get speaker simulation, but not mic simulation.

      Yes, you actually do. I can choose a different mic and placement and I hear differences in the sound straight through the amp's speakers. I never use the direct outs anymore. I use a mic in front of the amp. The direct outs are convenient; yes, but the tone is anemic compared to an actual mic in front of the actual speaker.

        I had one and it doesn't seem to like single coils (forum bro HKZSquared bought mine and said that the same thing)

        The Satchurator gets some awesome tones but despite the Joe Satriani name don't expect Satch in a box. Great for humbuckers IMO.

              Biyang Metal End is a good distortion pedal for less money. It has so much variety. I would rehouse it though if you are mechanically/electrically inclined.

                    Nothing...

                    Nothing worked as well as what I had already set up within the amp. Route 66 works great. I will leave it alone.

                        Whoops! My bad. Which version Flextone is this? I, II, or III?
