i have a marshall mg100 hdfx, biggest mistake of my life. i was wondering what distortion pedal would sound great on the clean setting of my amp. i kinda want more of a punk sounding distortion than a metal one. any suggestions would be great thanks
Try a BOSS OS-2 for a combination of overdrive and distortion.

Otherwise, a Digitech Grunge can do you good.

Try some pedals at a guitar store, they should have a massive wall of pedal boards to try out or just try some out on the same amp you have.

Personally, I thought I would prove everyone wrong a couple of years ago and bought a Spider 3 75w (its ****, ****ing waste of money) and learned that pedals dont cover up terrible tone to begin with. I would:
1) Sell the MG on craigslist (not ebay because of shipping plus the hassle unless you have sold before)
2) Buy a good amp that makes up for the MG being terrible, one that wont need a pedal unless you get a great clean amp with great pedal but thats for a different time and place to talk about. Sell that MG.
DO NOT get an overdrive. SS Amp + Overdrive = Tons of digital clipping
For punk I've heard good things about the Ibanez SM-7
Try a bunch out and see what you can do
Also can you sell the MG? You may get enough for something decent.

Id have to say save your money and put it towards a new amp.

Im sure you can find a Valveking for 250 used somewhere, or a crate V18 for 100 bucks and then invest in an overdrive.

Right now i have to say dont waste your money, no number of pedals is ganna save you from the pure ****ty tone of an MG.

Distortions or OD's arent ganna help you much with that crapper.
