For the longest time I have used my Orange Rocker 30 on the Natural channel, which has no EQ, but with all of the pedal I use, I was not happy with my clean tone because of the sheer jump in volume when turning my overdrive pedals On/Off. So, I switched to the Dirty channel, cranked the master volume and used the gain as a volume knob instead. Now, I am about to use the 3 band EQ, which really helped my clean tone. I ended up setting my pedals so that the overdrive volume was the same as my clean volume. However, something was still missing. Before, I was using a $40 Garland Guitars Tweed boost, that was flat and dead sounding. However, once purchasing the JHS Prestige my tone has come to life. The Prestige is an extremely usable one knob buffer/Booster/Overdrive pedal, similar to that of the Xotic EP booster but without the harshness. I have the Prestige on at all times. It gives me a crystal clean clean tone, while improving my overdrive pedals. I have the pedal set just before it starts to break up so I have a nice full signal running into my Strymon Pedals and my amp.
