hey guys, i have a vox ac15cc1x and a the moment i'm using a boss ds-1 with it for my distortion. i love the sound of my amp but would one day like to consider getting a new amp that i don't need pedals for my distortion. but i still love my amp so much. anyways so at the moment i'm looking to get some pedal(s) to get the same sorta distortion like steve vai, joe satriani and van halen kinda stuff. i love my amp so much and can't afford to get a new one at present but i can get some pedals. so i was think of getting an ibanez ts9 tube screamer to go with my ds-1? the ds-1 just isn't enough on it's own. what would you guys recommend? sorry i know i'm quite confusing. kk cheers

p.s. if you know of anymore guitarist/bands like the ones i listed let me know kk haha thanks.

Van Halen used a 5150 and Satriani uses a JSX both of which are very high gain, no idea about Vai, so you are going to need a high gain pedal. The Ts9 isn't gunna cut it for what you want.

Check out the Hard-wire Metal Distortion and other "metal" pedals to try and get the sound you want.

How much do you want to spend for the pedal? Could you sell your DS1 to increase your budget?
