Looking for moderate distortion, sounding kinda like Audioslave.
I'll be using my LP
Thanks

The TS 9 Tubescreamer is always a good choice. I have a Digitech Tone Driver, it is a pretty good pedal too

The TS9 is an overdrive, dude.


And what kind of music will you be playing?


EDIT: Sorry, missed that in the OP.


Erm....

...I don't really know.

An overdriven tube amp is the tone you're looking for and I can't think of any pedals that produce that.....

Aren't they both essentially the same thing?

An overdrive pedal (like the TS9) is used to overdrive a tube amp. Without a tube amp, a TS9 won't perform to it's fullest potential.

A distortion pedal "distorts" the signal path and adds more gain to the mix.

There's nothing wrong with getting a TS9....


....just make sure you have a tube amp to use it with first!


You COULD use it with a solid state amp and it would sound OK, but really, a TS9 needs a tube amp to work it's magic.

Ok, how about the DS-2. The sound clips on Boss' site are what I'm going for. Any other suggestions?

thats actually a misconception. TS9's sure can do that (level on 10, gain on 0), but they are meant to simulate an overdriven tube amp.

What is your budget and im assuming youll be using your bandit?

DO NOT BUY THE DS-1 OK i have your amp and it will get one or 2 decent tones at the most even with an independant EQ

neither tone is what ure looking for

Yeah, the Bandit. No more than 150. I still need to buy recording stuff. Right now I'm liking the DS-2

would you ever go heavier than audio slave? and im guessing youll be just practicing in your bedrrom? do you want other effects too? a new amp isnt out of the question for 150.
