      I'm using the JCA100H - I go for heavy rock tones, not quite metal but still heavy.

          JVM, JMP-1. Neither need a boost. I most like a smooth, rippling distortion, and for that, the JMP-1 pulls it better than the JVM, which is a more rugged, dirtier distortion. Both are fun for different times and uses.

            Mine would be the same.

              I cross the gamut of tones, sparkly cleans, light breakup, oldschool high gain, and metal stuff.

                    Rivera K-tre - I use the built in gain boost. Not really a (clean) boost in the conventional sense but it serves some of the same function.

                      Engl Savage 120. Channel 4 sounds/feels like a boosted amp already. I play metal, and I boost my VHT Deliverance 60, but no boost needed for the Engl.

                            I have a boost but it's off unless I am doing a solo. Plan to mod the SD-1 when I get the pickups taken care of. Amp is in my sig.
