can someone recommend me a pedal to get a disturbed sound?

i have a gibson SG and a Traynor YCV40.

i would like true-bypass and pretty much as inexpensive as possible.


thanks

The Traynor's a tube right?
Get an OD pedal, not a distortion pedal.
It'll tighten up/beef up the gain on the amp (if it's tube anyways.)
If you NEED TB, then I'd suggest the Hardwire CM-2 Tube Overdrive.
If you change your mind and TB isn't so necessary, buy a Digitech Bad Monkey
for half the price.

Hardwire = $100
Bad Monkey = $50

When you buy the pedal, you're going to want to set the level (or volume) to 10,
and the gain/overdrive to 0-3.
Sounds weird but thats how you 'boost your tubes.'

Oh, and if your Traynor is an SS then ignore all of what I just said.

I haven't tried it but I'm going to hazard a guess and say it isn't good.
Really most digitech modelling stuff sounds very digital, and it certainly isn't somthing their guitarist would use.

Well, Dan has a very digital sound and he uses the pedal himself through a randall of some sort.
I'd think that the pedal will help you get closer to his sound.
I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.

The Weapon isn't going to get you an exact Disturbed sound, but it comes surprisngly close if you follow the presets for certain songs.

It's not very good for an Indestructible sound though, more a The Sickness/Believe era-tone.

You can try a Metal Zone. With the parametric mid you can get a bunch of different sounds. Metal Muff is a great choice too.
