    Would putting these pedals into a power amp and speaker create the same or similar sound of their equivalent amps (TH350 & D-800)

    Or do these amps sound the way they do, because of their power amp sections?
  2. I run a THDI into a powered wedge and really like the results.

    I was thinking of doing this, as in the UK you cant seem to get either amps for less than £500 :/

    @agedhorse can help you with the Mesa question. (He designed them after all.)

    I have a powered bag-end on the way and I plan on going Tone Hammer into it. I'll let you know when it arrives.

    Hmm, I wonder how onion rings got their name...

    Yes. I’ve tried both through a bergantino IP112. The Aguilar was an upgraded TH500. The way the Mesa designed, it is really more useful than your would think. Smart design of the Mesa pedals gives you some options you didn’t think you were looking for.

    Having owned both amps, I think the pedals with the right power section can be greater than the amps
