Upto Pedal to Compliment Vox AC15C1

Woah! Okay.

I just bought a (very slightly) used Vox AC15C1, and I'm trying to find a nice distortion or overdrive pedal that will fit nicely with it. I have an electric with humbuckers right now, so I'd be looking for it to work well with that. If I do change guitars, I'll stick with humbuckers (most likely).

I like to play mostly harder rock, some punk, some metal.

Shoot me ideas!

Thanks!

- Austin.

That's what I was looking at. I've heard they're pretty nice, any pros or cons?

I second the OCD, it's like it was made for this amp.

Just remember that the tone control only controls treble frequencies so be liberal unlike with a tubescreamer.

And the LP mode is under rated, try it before you dismiss it.

Pshhhhow, wow. So much to choose from!

I'd like to keep my price below $150...but if it's a pedal that is worth the extra cash and that I'll be able to use for a long time, then I'd be willing to spend more.

I play more rock than metal, if that changes things.
