    Boss SD-1 is highly rated here in the MF.
    I have one coming for Christmas from my son to put some amp sauce on the G15MS.

    oh just learnt something new today

    that you can plug an OD pedal in.. crank your amp up and control the volume from the pedal..

    Yeah, I think it's the extra gain. Most seem to use it pretty close to minimum

    Shouldn't think so, I just put a el823 tube in v1, gets the od channel a lot quieter and more manageable, different from clean with an od pedal but really good for me anyhow,
    Using clean, clean with od and the ultra gain channel a lot more now

    please just stop! no more ideas lol

    im going to give it a bit of time to let the greenback settle in... and for the first time today, with the new speaker in and OD plugged in, i didnt realise just how much you can change tone by playing with your guitar tone and Volume.

    with the standard speaker, it didnt do a lot, but now even me with my tone deaf ears i can hear differences:)

    update - SD1 was returned, it just didnt do it for me tbh.. doing a lot of reading on the DSL5CR and it seems that it is a high gain amp as it , so the boost it gave was nah.....

    now i did warn you about more stupid questions....

    im thinking of the Boss Katana 50 amp

    what does this mean

    "Whilst the Katana 50 MKII is superb as a standalone, practice-ready amp, you can also use it as a powered cabinet for your favourite preamp, modeler or multi-fx unit!

    Simply connect to the rear-panel Power Amp In jack, and the MKII's preamp is bypassed, allowing you to tap straight into the Tube Logic power section, complete with Power Control function!"

    does this mean from my DSL5 can i use the Marshall as the preamp?

    Haven't stopped on my dsl yet, dunno anything about the katana, I'm loving my od pedal( cheap ass one) just for the amount of tonal variety you can get.
    Chuck it on in the UG channel and seems to have a real kinda twang to it rather than just a thump, or in the clean channels for an awesome classic rock sound.
    I'm still in the honeymoon period I guess

    I have a crossfire od plus distortion pedal, first pedal I ever bought, in desperate need of an upgrade but it still works I guess

    me again, part 6 of stupid questions

    just want to be double sure
    on this pedal - the return goes into Send of the amp, and the send is connected to the return of the amp right?

    I paid $4k to federal tax on Jan,. 15th.

    Why does a billionaire pay $750.00 in federal tax for the year?

    Because after all the little folks like you and me pony up, they only need $750.00 from billionaires. It's simple math.
    Conversely if everyone paid a straight 5%, we could afford healthcare for all, higher education and guaranteed pensions, but it would be too onerous on the 1% to pay their fair share and they'd all move to Morocco. (Sure they would)

    Probably because the billionaire prepaid the bulk of his taxes in advance, and the $750 was the remaining balance.

    Because you're paying income tax, and the Billionaire is paying Capital Gains tax which is a MUCH lower rate
