I like all the distortion and everything on my TSL602, but I might want to boost it some. It barely gets into Metallica range. I like the distortion in general, but I sort of want a little more punch to it for some metallish sounds, along with stronger palm mutes when I have the pedal on...

Now I believe some of the main boost pedals I have heard about are a TS808, TS9 but I think they boost the mids a ton which I don't need?, and I think I heard from someone that a SD-1 works really well with marshalls for a good low end. Which one of these suits my needs the most, or are there other ones that are better? (I know these are the common ones).

I usually play RHCP, Sublime, and alternative/punk which the amp is good for, but I do hard rock/metal sometimes. Like Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, nothing more than that is what I'd need it for. I know I can use a distortion pedal but my amp is just out of the range I want so I kinda want to get that to work.

mabye just get an EQ pedal. raise the level a bit and shape the tone you want. or just an mxr micro amp...that would work too.

I would suggest a Fulltone OCD if you don't want the mid-bump that the TS has.

Keeley modded TS9, its the TS9 without the mid hump and the muddyness.


I'll look into these. Whats a good price for one used, or is it better to buy direct? Also, is the true bypass worth the extra $$ or does it not color your tone a lot normally?

True bypass is nice, but a good pedal without true bypass will sound just as good. Boss stuff has terrible bypass. The ISP Decimator's bypass is great, no coloration. I can't hear any coloration in my OD808 either.

ok i agree with the ts-9 giving a massive mid boost, but it isn't muddy. have ever even used one? if anything it makes your tone brighter not darker.

I've been looking into it (reviews and such), I think the Fulltone OCD is best for my needs, as it doesn't boost the mids as much and I saw some people say its good for enhancing your rhythm tone. If I can find somewhere to try it out I guess I will.

This is a good idea. And imo the TS9 isn't that muddy.

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.
