    A question for Andy and others:
    I understand that the Mesa Subway pre drives a power amp and sounds great.
    Would it be a good match to have the pedal drive the power amp section of a GK MBF800?

    Also, does the power amp side of the Subway 800 amp, color the sound?
    Meaning, does the factory amp sound similar to driving a standard power amp or MI amp?

    No problem driving the GK.

    The only significant coloration in the Subway power amp is when it's driven hard, into output tube emulation operation.
