Back in December I got an Archon 50 combo amp. I really love this thing, it takes pedals really well and has that nice fat tone that I had been looking for, it's the amp that stopped me from shopping for amps. I primarily use the clean channel but the dirty channel has some killer tone too. So I thought to myself a couple of weeks ago, hey I have a 2 channel amp here and I'm only using 50% of it, why not sideline some of my distortion pedals for a while (a short while because I'll tell ya, I haven't found anything better than the Strymon Sunset I got, but that's another topic) and try using the built in amp distortion. The problem is I'm having trouble boosting the dirty channel for solos. I use a Boss GE-7 currently after my distortion pedal on the clean channel and it works great. I add a touch of high mids, and add level but when I try that set up on the dirty channel it has no effect. It doesn't matter if its in front of the amp or in the loop, the EQ doesn't boost the signal on the dirty channel. Am I'm missing something? Should I be using something else as a boost?
