is there a pedal similar to the mxr double shot distortion pedal? 2 independant channels which can be toggled between one another? i think they had an awesome idea with this pedal, but the pedal just doesnt sound that great...so is there something else thats similar to it but sounds better?
There's the EHX double muff, but I don't know how similar that is. You may also want to look at the Visual Sound Jekyll and Hyde, which has a distortion and an OD together.
Just get two pedals?
well using the pedal is a very good idea, instead of 2 pedals, its 2 pedals in 1, which u can toggle between...so really its just less pedal stomping which makes this pedal a very convinient pedal
But, it's the same pedal twice, seems pointless. The point of having other pedals and channels if for different sounds. Sure, you could get different sounds with that pedal, but they would be fundamentally the same. If that's what you're going for then it would be perfect, but to me two separate overdrive/distortion pedals would be much more versatile.
build the pedal you want.
actually, is there a way to wire 2 pedals together so i can toggle between them?
um possibly but it might be cheaper to just buy two pedals kits and wire them into one casing.
