I think it would be great for a clean module to be designed specifically as a pedal platform. Good clean tones with lots of headroom have always been difficult with MTS and I've NEVER heard one that really takes OD pedals well. If you disagree, take that same OD pedal and plug in in to a Plexi, a clean Boogie or Bassman! THAT'S what it SHOULD sound like!
I'm talking about a module who's job isn't to sound great clean, but to sound AMAZING with an OD pedal in front of it.
Maybe instead of Gain, Bass, Mid, Treble there could be a Lo MID and Hi MID with frequency controls. The input gain could be changed to a Hi/Low input switch. Perhaps bass boost/cut switch along with the bright switch.

Somehow, I think that's the idea of the new synergy amp that has a built in clean channel.

Roland Jazz Chorus. With all that room you save not having two tubes, you should be able to fit an extra chorus PCB in there.. maybe...


The trouble is that the chassis are not designed for powering solid state preamps

All they've said is that it will have a Fender style clean tone. Which still makes all the sense in the world! But I do hope they pay attention to how well it takes OD pedals.

I'm surprised, all my OD pedals work great with my mods. Is the problem in boosting a crystal clean to breakup transparently?

I find the Vamp and CWatt take pedals the best. But all my mods seem to as well...I don't have any problem using most mods to be honest...

I'm in the middle of one of my semiannual dirt pedal buying sprees, so I have my main RM100 loaded with a JF Blackfaced Deluxe (with same Spank switch as a Super Clean), a Salvation TwinFace, and a JF Superpro (with an 832 instead of one AX7).

They all sound different with a pedal running through them. Never bad or wrong, just different.

That 832 is a super interesting tube for those use in module V1 on those modules where only 1/2 of the V1 is being used. Pop in an 832, add a switch and few trivial components and you've got an interesting low gain additional stage.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm surprised there isn't a SuperLead/Super Bass mod out there....or is there?

Each side could have switchable voicing.

Concur on a Gretchen module - anything Ty up through Dogman.

Hughes and Kettner Triamp channel 1A is hands down the spankiest clean tone I've ever played. Channel 3B is a mighty nasty high gain. The triamps may have ruled the world if not plagued with some quality issues.
