Anyone using the dt50 head as a stand alone amp with traditional analog stomps??  Was thinking about going this route but can't find anyone actually talking about it with out the pod HDs.


To clarify, can I expect this to react like any other tube amp?


Are you maxing out the master?


etc....that type of stuff....

There have been quite a few posts about this in the past, but it's been a while. They react like an amp would when using pedals. They are not strictly a vehicle for Pods, they work very well with separate effects pedals, both in front and in the loop.

I've never been able to come close to maxing out the master. The loudest I've had it was near 12 o'clock, and that was outdoors on a huge stage. But, generally, the DT25 likes pedals.

I play around with a few pedals going into the front of my DT50 and Spider Jam. 2 of them were DIY Modkits, the Persuader and the Persuader Deluxe. They sound purty good. Also I don't see much point in going past 12 O'clock with the DT 50 Master Volume, at least for now.
