Yesterday with Fenders national 10% off all Fender products, I bought this





Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, 40 watt TUBE. I couldn't resist buying it. The clean channel breaks up pretty easily and it sounds great. The overdrive is OK, it could be better which is why im here. I need a great sounding distortion/overdrive pedal that will go with the amp well and im clueless as to were to start looking. On the OD channel on the amp, theres overdrive then theres a second circuit for more drive. I'll always have the more drive circuit enabled, which nails Thin Lizzy tones which is what I was looking for, but for heavier rock its doesn't quite cut it. I was looking at the Ibanez Tubescreamer TS9 which will give it a decent boost and I was also looking at the Tonebone Hot British pedal. I'm selling my MG and have $100 in cash, so possibly I'll have $175 or so for a budget? If you guys can list some suggestions that'd be great. And also, if someone can tell me how to upload pics from my PC to this thread I have no idea how to, and I know someone is going to be on my ass about that.
Thanks

The Tonebone would be good I guess, other than that there's the Rothwell Hellbender which sounds pretty awesome for that british drive IMO.

I really like the Hellbender and too be honest I think thats what I might purchase. $20 for shipping is probably worth it. The Proco sounded a bit thin, but with good eq it might be alright. Its up between the Hellbender and the TS9. Any other suggestions?

And ill post pics if someone tells me how

First swap the speaker, then buy a cheap-ish but decent OD like an SD1, bad monkey or dano cool cat or something... That'll get you the most results for the least amount of cash.


Try an eminence Tonker or Governour for a TL styled tone for not too much coin... Usually I like the wizard and tonespotter but the former would likely be too bright in a fender and the latter too soft for a decent TL tone.
