I'll need two types of distortion from pedals to use through a blackheart little giant. One will be for more modern stuff such as Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica, Every Time I Die, Bullet for my Valentine. The other, for more classic rock, AC/DC, Boston, GNR, stuff like that.

Any suggestions? I've also heard a good OD might do the trick for the classic rock, but i'm not sure.

Budget isn't too much of an issue, but keep it reasonable

bad monkey OD for the classic rock

I've heard good things about metal muff, but you should also take a look at the digitech hardwire metal distortion pedal... can't go wrong really with either

A popular pedal for this is the Visual Sound Jekyll and Hyde. I personally don't like it but it has both an overdrive and a distortion. You're better off buying an overdrive and a distortion separately, but you're BEST off getting a new amp if you can.

Metal muff for modern stuff, and surely the overdrive on the blackheart should do the job? If not, have a look at the Boss OD pedals

My bad, somebody needs to put their new amp in their sig

In that case, just get a distortion pedal. The amp overdrive is better than what most pedals will give you anyway, but you do need a pedal for heavier sounds.

I was actually about to recommend this LOL! Maybe the DS-1 and a Bad Monkey, or perhaps an Ibanez Jemini.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

black star hm-5 . metal muff for like chords and shizz and a bad monkey for the overdrive

well, for the classic stuff, the amp's OD should be better than any pedal. as for the metal stuff, i'd take the MXR dime distortion. not for everybody, but i liked it, it was very thick and chunky. the metal muff would be good, but its very "trashy" voiced, and isnt the best for modern stuff.
