Using a gain pedal in the effects loop sounds a bit weird to me, indeed. I suppose the Guv'nor was brittle then, probably the Bluesbreaker would do a better job. How do you compare the Guv'nor to a Tube Screamer?

I ment to say that the guvnor plus's eq section took away the brittle top from the 2466.

Reviving an old thread, but just wanted to pop in and say that the SD-1 matches great with the VM.

I have the combo and mainly use LDR. HDR doesn't clean up as well for me with my Les Paul.

I was using an EP booster . Sounded great with my Tele (now sold) but I didn't like it as much with the LP. Added too much low end.

The SD-1 is doing exactly what I want to push the amp slightly in LDR - I leave it on all the time and it still cleans up nicely with the guitar's volume. (I run the gain low 8;00-9:00 and the Level higher).

Funny how sometimes the old tried and true classic pedals just plain do the job.

Same can be said for amps.
