Hi there, from a very new owner of a Mk1 Valve 112.
I have got a Digitech Bad Monkey running in through the front. It sounds ok with the first 3 amp types (Clean, Twang, Blues). I don't have the gain up too high, and it sounds ok.
Through the effects loop I have an old Behringer Tremelo, a Behringer Chorus, and a Digitech Jamman.
I also have the basic FBV pedal for changing between the four amp presets.
So far so good. I just got the amp today, and set it up with some amp sounds I like, and decided to plug in my old pedals to try.
Early days yet, but I think the outboard Chorus is much better than the onboard one. Mind you I haven't gone into the deeper tweaking of the onboard effects, so may be able to get sounds I really like.
I do like the clean tones I am getting. It sounds great with my strats. The Reverb is quite nice. I will certainly need to hunt around in the deeper settings to use the Delay.
I'm not that keen on the Metal or Insane amps yet, but may need to tweak around to find a sound I like.
If anyone can suggest some settings for a nice Joe Satriani sound, or a Steve Vai sound, I would appreciate some hints.

Most of us were not pleased so much with the quality of the built-in effects as we were with the lack of control over them. We found out early that the SV's take pedals really well. I use an M13 via the 4CM, a Dunlop 535Q, and EH Baseballs with my SV HD100. That being said, I still use some of the on-board effects.

Wassup Charlie?!?!? Hey bro, sorry aint been around a lot lately, but I've been really busy. Yes, we were not really happy with the effects when it first came out but I use the M9 and it rocks! I still use the delay and reverb off of the amp
