It's been awhile since I used my amp to crush someone's music on purpose, last two times I bleed into the other two rehearsal rooms because we turned my amp to five with a cranked rat and od infront of it to 5 and the bass amp to 9 and devoured the other two bands in the space and the time before that was some loser playing dubstep I turned it to like 2.5 and it obliterated his ass. He banged on the door and complained he couldn't hear his crap at all. It's really just the landlords that give you crap and if they are dicks can evict your ass so if your going to do it, do it at the end of the month lol.

One thing I don't understand is buying an expensive multi-channel amp (Mark V, JVM etc.) and only using the clean channel and distortion pedal. I'm sure people could get the same sound for much cheaper.

You need to do the beavis and butthead version of the singing because its just funny.
Anyway back on topic for I think I owned about 8 different distortion pedals the most I spent was 100 bucks for a j&h, (wicked pedal if you buy one used its worth it just for the od) a vintage turbo rat for 40, the rest I spent 20 bucks on or less. I bought a ten dollar metalzone because a buddy of mine was looking for one, I figured he'd give me 20 and It would be like getting a set of strings for free but no, its a pretty useless pedal. I at least had a little fun trying to mod it and failing.

Yeah, it wasn't that terrible but the fact it got spanked my rat and j+h made it completely useless. It didn't sound that much like a can of bees if you eq'd it perfectly and kept the gain and volume low even still it was mefiocre at best. I saw a video of it being used as a boost a while back that actually sounded pretty damn good I just didn't have a high gain amp to test this for my self. Long story short don't buy it even for ten. I managed to score a ds1, the fab pedals supprisingly not that bad I still use the metal one when I want a very Lo-fi type of sound I should learn a few black metal songs so it has a legit use. Digitech death metal for $15 used it for a few hours sold it back to a store for $20 yay profit. A ds1 for 20, I sold it because I pretty much only play metal and got my money back. I forgot the rest were od pedals. If I can snag a boss dyna drive or a hm2 for $20 I'd try them out then re well them because I can.

Not as much as I'd like I haven't got to try out a dominator , a tripple wreck, or dirty bomb but as some one with a 1 channel amp that's stuck in the early seventies with almost no gain and owned many sub par amps. In my expierence its easier to let the amp take care of the eq if possible, also don't dime the gain on the pedal it doesn't sound good on an amp its sure as hell not going to sound good on a pedal. Lastly distortion pedals tend to make unwanted noise so some kind of suppressor :cough: isp decimator :cough: is essential, even if you switch to an all tube rig you can still use it its a solid investment because amps hum.

I have a question: If I put a distortion or an overdrive pedal in front of a tube amp, is it like I have a solid state preamplifier?

I've been looking at Distortion pedals recently. My amp is satisfactory, I just want something a bit different for when I feel like I need it.

The problem is that the usual options tend to be a teeny bit pants. Boss and Digitech make decent enough pedals elsewhere but I'm yet to hear a full on distortion pedal in their current range that I like. The metal muff is 'meh' and other than that, the common names that are thrown about are going for more than £100.

I've found a few pedals that I actually like. The Mesa pedal (can't remember which one is the gainiest atm), Wampler Triple Wreck, Suhr Riot and Okko Dominator are all pedals that I like, but there's a common issue. They're all closer to £200 than 100. During my searches I came across some schematics for the Wampler, okko and suhr and while they're beyond my skill atm, they're not ridiculously complex.

So I've bought a simple fizz kit so I can get a bit of practice and then I'll be attempting one of the above if I feel up to it.

Has anyone else got recommendations for high gain distortion pedals for me to check out?

Sorry if it's already been mentioned, but barber dirty bomb, or one of the blackstar ht pedals.

What you really need is a new amp.

@tubetime let's say you own a JVM 800 and for a few songs you want a mesa type sound, now you have three options buy and carry an expensive amp, amp moddeler or get a pedal. If you have loads of cash and a good back the mesa is for you but realisticly for most people it is not a real option. So its moddeler vs pedal and honestly this is just a matter of preference.

There is no 'JVM 800' and your 'question' is nonsense. This whole thread is nonsense.

I think he wanted to write JCM 800. Anyway, I believe that if someone wants to experiment with his/her sound he must have a good modeller. I was thinking a lot about Laney Prism.
