I use the internal preamp/buffer and then an external looper/true bypass box I built to take the pedal board out when not using effects (which is most of the time). Oh, and by the way, I bought that SMS classic off Craigs list (having it sent to Brad for the Jerry mod), and am trying to decide between MC2100 or Rockrton300. Decisions, decisions! Thanks again...you guys are great! Peace, Jim
Of course the MC2100 would be an excellent choice but if you're considering the Rocktron especially because it's cheaper, I'd think about a Mosvalve. I got a MV962 mostly as an emergency backup but I'm gonna give it a shot at my gig tomorrow night. It sounded great cranked up in the basement. I got it for $175. If you're want to go with a tube option the Mesa 50/50 is a good choice. I'm looking for one to sell cheap on eBay for a while - SO DON'T OUTBID ME!!
I've been using the power section from my Mark III and it sounds great with the SMS too.
