The BOSS DS-1 is the standard, usually. Used by pros and amateurs alike, it costs about $40 at pretty much any retailer

Here's the link to the manufacturer's page:

were gonna need your playing styles as well as a more specific budget. the DS-1 though, as tickler said, is the standard "cheap distortion", and its not bad for getting that 90's "grunge" sound. there are some other companies like digitech, danelectro, that make cheap distortions. ibanez also has a line of cheap pedals.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.
