I play mostly classic rock and some metal. I really like Randy Rhoades, Jimmy Page, Angus Young, ect. So what would be good? I am willing to spend up to $300.
Thanks

Sola Sound Tonebender Fuzz, it is the pedal Page used and sounds great and enough of a range to cover Young too and probably Rhoades.

The Tonebender covers only a small bit of Page and it sounds nothing like Young and Rhoads.

The Fulltone OCD can get some pretty good metal tones out of the right amp; when it's drive is cranked, my Fender Bassman sounds like an all-tube Marshall halfstack (so a more metal-friendly amp would make it shine). And that's when it's running at 9 volt; if you can hook it up to 18 volts, you'd get even more distortion out of it. But without doing so I can get Angus Young tones, and it definitely covers Page as well.

I hear awesome things about the previously mentioned GT-500.

first, what amp are you using?


+1

Can't really recommend anything to help you achieve the tone you're looking for until we know what you are actually playing through.
#17
Zvex Box of Rock will do the whole Angus tone and early Page kind of tone fairly well. Probably too much bottom end to reasonably really get mid-late Zeppelin tone.
#18
buy yourself a Electro Harmonix Big muff!!! I have one and since I bought it my Boss ds-1 distortion my ibanez tube screamer and my pro co rat dont get used at all lol.

If your amp doesn't produce a good distortion on it's own (not saying you can't add to it) then you probably need to invest in a better amp first before pedals. Pedals are moddelled after amps and do a prettty crappy job of it.

Hows about a Digitech DF-7 Distortion Factory

With the Muff and Tube Screamer for the classic sounds, plus the DS-1 if you tweak it right. You get all you need for a hundrend bucks.

dude, funny joke. made me chuckle.


annnyyyyyywho, it sounds like the GT-500 or Crunch Box may be the most versatile of the pedals mentioned, so TS, look into them. ( www.proguitarshop.com ) and watch some vids.

Or you can actually get something doesn't suck. TS try this, provided of course your amp is decent. http://www.cmatmods.com/brownie.html

Basically a Brown Sound In a Box with a few tweaks. Gain range is very useable. Bottom end is tight (unlike the Box of Rock). You should have no problem getting shades of Page and Young at lower drive settings and Rhoads out of it at higher settings.

seriously, tube-based british-voiced pedal. Can do OD, crunch and fuzz. Pretty much does all you're looking for.
