i went for the clean solid state route. however at times i need an overdrive pedal. all the overdrive pedals are usually made to sound like a tube OD which i can definitely see why. i was wondering... would using the blend knob help the gk tone come through? or will i still loose the gk tone still? when i had the sansamp i rarely used the blend knob.. but i do remember my amp at the time loosing its tone and just sounding like the sansamp.
