Solid State Amps : Which Amplifier Is Suitable To Be Used With Effect Stompboxes and Multi-Effects Pedals?

Click here to read our article "Solid State Amps : Which Amplifier is Suitable To Be Used With Effect Stompboxes and Multi-Effects Pedals?"

Whenever somebody asks "What are the most important features when choosing a guitar amplifier?", most would say about the tone, whether is it a tube amplifier or a solid state amplifier, how is the overdrive or distortion channel sounds like from that amp, are there any built-in effects and so much more. But today, we will only be focusing on one feature only, which is the Clean Channel!

To be exact, we will be exploring the Clean Channel from solid state amplifiers!

Solid State Amps : What Is That???

Solid State amplifiers use transistor-based circuitry to convert electrical signals from the guitar to become audio wave signals. There are two types of solid state amplifiers, which uses Digital Modelling while the other uses Analog circuitry.

If digital modelling amps uses digital algorythms to re-create the tones of well-known amplifiers, then in contrast the analog amplifiers uses components (transistors, resistors and capasitors) in both the pre-amp and the power-amp sections to produce the warm tones well associated with the real tube amplifiers, but in a more compact and portable version.

Why Focus Only On The Clean Channel???

Clean Channels are mainly used for, by default, guitar sounds that doesn't need any overdrive, crunch or distortion sounds or used in a specific sections of song compositions that needs clean guitar playing. But for some, or should we say there are a lot of guitarists that uses the Clean Channel of an amplifier as a platform for their tone shaping based on their effect pedals. So, the sound and the tone of the Clean Channel of any amplifiers in general are very important for those who rely mostly on effect pedals, especially Multi-Effect pedals so that these amplifiers won't give additional "color" and for those who really wants to showcase the sound and tones of their pedalboards.

So today, we will be comparing the Clean Channel on digital modelling amplifiers and also analog amplifiers with effect pedals using Ibanez Tube Screamer TS-808, Fulltone OCD-Ge Germanium, Xotic EP-Booster and Tech 21 Fly Rig 5 v2 for Multi-Effects. For analog amplifier, we will use Orange Crush 35RT Combo Amplifier and for digital modelling amps, we will be using Boss Katana 50 MK II, Marshall Code 25, Blackstar ID:Core 40 V2 and Peavey Vypyr VIP 2.

What Is So Special About The Orange Crush 35RT???

Orange is well-known for their usage of analog circuitries because of their philosophy of creating amplifiers that can provide the feel and response purposely to let guitarists be inspired more and more by their instruments and gears, not the technology. The Clean Channel on this amplifier also maintains the headroom space without any hint of overdrive tones throughout the overall output ranges.

So, the Orange Crush 35RT is an excellent amplifier as the core to guitar tone and sound shaping for those who are using effects on their pedalboards. This 35 watts, highly portable amplifier, fully equipped with 3-Band EQ, a Tuner and also built-in Reverb not only look sturdy and mesmerizing enough with it's unique orange color, this amplifier is also well-equipped and more than capable to rock at small gigs, practicing at home and even for a song or a full-length album recording sessions in the studio!

Not only that, the Crush 35RT also has an Effects Loops that is fully buffered and with low impedance loop allows for any number of effects and cables to be patched between the amp’s input and output sections without sacrificing tone!
