Amplifier overdrive vs overdrive pedal

Cranking your amp loud for Tube Distortion or an Overdrive Pedal?

People say the holy grail for getting great tone is to have your clean channel up as loud as possible to get “tube distortion” that only occurs when the tubes are clipping. In this video test I compare running a Fender Blues Deluxe reissue amplifier on half volume against having the amp at a lower volume with an off-clean overdrive pedal.  The pedal in this video is called a VS Audio Royal Flush Overdrive Pedal.
