Anyone else finding out the Maz 8 works best with just guitar and cord? That seems to be the case with me. I can't seem to make my pedals work well in front of the amp...but just plug a guitar in and WHAMMO!
Would like to hear what other users are thinking/feeling.

I'm a pedal junkie... and as such had my board plugged in the first time I fired up the 8. But as with any new amp, I'm finding that it takes a bit of time to find the sweet spots. I was a little surprised that the go-to settings I used with the 18 weren't working quite as well with 8... but all in good time.
+1 on clean boost. I'm running triode/low input mode with the foot switch and an EP booster this little monster sings!! Using the LP's volume and pick attack it goes from clean and sparkly to down and dirty and "all points in between." I have also found the M8 doesn't "need" pedals to sound great but pedals can be dialed in to sound great if you like!
