okay... i got a 6505+ running through a marshall cab and i LOOOOOOOOVVVEEEEE it. BUT! i want a distortion pedal to get get a different sounding distortion i love the sound i get outta my amp but i want to have the ability to switch from dist to dist or OD to dis, etc
right now i have a DOD Yngwei Ibanez TS808 a Badmonkey, an ISP decimator, and a MXR ten band EQ.

so i need a new distortion or OD pedal for a different sound either a heavier one and dial back my amp or a lighter one ang keep my amps gain at over 9000, i have a few ideas.

or the Dunlop Crybaby from Hell

for a distortion pedal i would suggest a Damage control demonizer but the SD Mayhem is good too but your amp already have gobs of distortion. i think running a Maxon OD or a Fulltone OCD on your amps dirty channel will be better

wor a wah i think the crybaby is better than the morley, imo.

Personally, I can't see how you need another od, what with the tubescreamer and all....


But the only advice I can give you on those pedals is that the Dimewah, is totally awsome. Happy trails, dude
HOWAYA LUV ;D

because im looking for a different sound, like my amp has a specific sound which i love, but all i have is clean and that epic high gain plus my tubescreamer and yngwei give me blues + neo classical but i still need some regular OD

i'd get a lighter distortion/heavier overdrive pedal, the 5150 is pretty good at t3h br00talz already. you might as well use it for the tone it's designed for...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I have decided on that boss wammynpedal thing, I need a wah not a wammy and if I wanted fuzz I'd get a big muff
