It takes pedals well, but not when you are trying to overdrive the JC120 like you would a tube amp. As long as your od/dist is handled without needing an extra stage of preamp work, it will sound great.
I often use a Roland GP-100 into a JC-120, and it sounds amazing (and yes, I'm kind of a tube snob)
That was my exact after thought. The VG88 will provide the ground work. The amp will simply amplify!!Thankd for your input
