then i dont think distortion is what you should be looking into, you might wanna try an OD first. good ODs mixed with good sounding amps or even other ODs can get a lot of gain, it will never resemble natural amp distortion, but if you want blues tone then distortion isn't where to begin

never tried that one but if you are looking at Boss pedals then a Blues Driver would be the better choice, maybe a fulltone OCD. i use OD much more than distortion. as an answer to your original question you could check out a ProCo Rat, it's a very standard distortion that can get a wide variety of sounds, and it can be had for less than $100 new. but definitely do some listening on youtube before deciding on one, and of course getting a chance to go to a shop and play some if thats easy enough is good too

He said he's doing bluesy stuff...so definantly not the metal muff.

Os-2 isn't a bad call. Either one of the MXR badass pedals are good (either the OD or the Distortion).
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof. Loop 1 into ISP decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.
