What's the best distortion pedal for music like Jimi Hendrix to van halen and guns n roses? I was thinking a ts-9 or os-2 tht anygood? It would b running from my jcm 800 clean setting

I'd say turn the gain up on your 800 to around 7 or max, then buy a clean boost pedal, I've heard that works really well for old school rock/metal.

Get a fuzz pedal for Hendrix. The other two you should be able to get close to by using your JCM800s gain, especially GnR since Slash and Izzy used them.

Slash used the Jubilee, which is a boosted version of the 800 pretty much.

I can't really blast it past 4 at home I'm using this as both a giging amp and practice amp n I want to get the best possible tone at home too with out cranking it so would a tube screamer be any good for van halen or guns n roses? It would be running through the amp with a clean signal

None of this is rock n' roll...but whatever.

You have one of the greatest amps ever made. Just get something like an MXR Micro Amp to boost the signal and you should be able to do Gn'R. I think you're gonna need more power for the EVH though. If I remember right he modded his amps to drive the **** out of 'em. But I could be wrong.

Some kind of germanium fuzz for Hendrix-y stuff I quite like the analog man sunface. Try a few. Oh and with a JCM 800 you should already be sorted for Guns'n'Roses etc. stuff. If volume is an issue get an attenuator.
I like Beans.
