Hey so once my B-52 gets here, I'm going to promptly celebrate my NAD and then sell my old Raven. I'm also thinking about selling my RP 250 because I'm going to be using my amps distortion and since I don't use too many effects, I'll want to invest into much higher quality effects. My main goal is to get a good distortion pedal that can work both as a slightly distorted booster and as a good standalone distortion method for recording (the programs on-board distortion makes me want to hurl). What pedal would you suggest could really get the job done? From what I understand, the Boss DS-1 is a pretty solid pedal, and GC is giving you a free adapter for it when you buy one of their select pedals (I'm pretty sure the DS-1 is one of them). Btw I play a mix of Children of Bodom, Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica and Megadeth.

The DS-1 is very thin and harsh unless you get one thats been modded by either Keeley or Analogman. The same is the case with most of the Boss dirt pedals.

Also, avoid DigiTech pedals with the exception of the Hardwire series.

You should look into a Hardwire Metal Distortion, an EHX Metal Muff, or an M.I. Audio Crunchbox.

You can buy a DS-1 modded from the Keeley website for $129. It may seem pretty expensive but its worth every penny. You must be willing to shell out a little cash if you want exceptional tone.

Well for recording I don't need really exceptional tone. The dirty boosting part of it is much more important in this case. It's just got to have acceptable stand-alone distortion.
