anyone know a of a good distortion pedal for playing a lot of prog rock? I know I will need more to get that sound, but whats a good dist. to start out with?
amp- epi valve standard
guitar- ibanez sz720 with upgraded pups
What I do is go with a light crunch on my amp and then use my Wylde OD to go the rest of the way. Works VERY well with my EMGs. I don't know what "upgraded" means specifically, but if they're high output it should work.

Maybe browse around this for some ideas. http://www.johnpetrucci.com/gear.htm
Alvarez dreadnought
Gibson SG
Homemade Strat (seymour duncan classic stack p/ups)
Vox Tonelab (original desktop model) with full board footswitch
Vox AD50
