Better gain tones from the HD-130

The HD-130 is a great sounding clean amp. However, the gain side of it is pretty ordinary. It just doesn’t get a good sound.

I saw the Clapton mod for the HD-130 and thought it probably won’t deliver the required tones.

I suppose mods to the preamp is a moot point when you can buy foundation distortion pedals under $300.

Are there mods that you have tried and liked?

Yeah, you are better off with

Yeah, you are better off with front end pedals. Distortion from IC's in MM's is just so so, IMO. I always pedaled mine. Maybe a line 6 pedal board? I used my built pedals and some factory stff when I was playing but the modeling crap from today IS pretty awesome.
