You can get a nice distortion tone if you use your distortion/overdrive pedal as more of a volume boost with the distortion on the low side and volume maxed (with your amp's volume set on the edge of clean) to push the amp into natural overdrive.

Some days I would love to be in a band where I could strip my rig down to a 335-type guitar, tube screamer, and a vintage Deluxe Reverb. That is tone heaven!! But in my current situation, for both volume and versatility reasons, I play through a 4 channel amp with both pedals and rack effects.

Depends....if you play more clean or more dirty! I don't think you should have to to compromise on either.

Went and played with the Vox 50 watt and the LP studio in wine red.

Loved 'em both.

Is it standard for the studio to be "chambered" and less heavy?

Rambo, when I first started, an acquaintance of mine told me to start with an acoustic first, and I think it was good advice. Your hands will work harder with an acoustic, which is helpful for later switching to electric. Just something to consider.
