Hey, I've been messing around with my Digitech, and it's got some good clean effects on it, but the distortions sound too muddy with the bass and don't sound all that distorted on guitar, so I was wondering if there was a distortion that wasn't muddy with bass and had a heavy feel to it on guitar. I've been thinking about the Big Muff, but I've never heard it used with a guitar.

The Big Muff was made for the guitar and not the bass, but bass players love it. It will be heavy, but somewhat muddy on both instruments. Great pedal, nonetheless.

rocktron metal planet? ehx metal muff with top boost?

their are plenty that would suit you fine, since you most likely can't hear the difference between a line 6 spider or a bogner uberschall

Ah, ok, I didn't know that. Any certain one you'd recommend?

The Rocktron sounds good, and so does the Metal Muff, I'll consider those.

And I edited my sig for people like you that think I wanted the Spider.

honestly, you're hoping to trade it in for a roland cube (which will sound just as "good" with a distortion pedal as the spider)

why not save up a bit more and put the money you're gonna be spending on a pedal towards a better amp.

^My friend said that they sound a lot better than the Spider III, and I use my bass amp for most guitar stuff anyways, and the Acoustic sounds good with the effects.

What kind of tone do you want?

A MI Audio Crunch Box is only a bit over budget.

I was looking for a Metallica type of sound, and I play hard rock and metal stuff.

well maybe you should try it first. spending $100 on a distortion pedal for a cube sounds pointless to me
