anybody know of any good/decent distortion pedals for about $30-$60...i gotta tube overdrive pedal but i need more push/drive/distortion...im aiming for the sound that john frusciante gets in "dani california (on the chorus and solo)" i know that hes uses the boss turbo-2 pedal..but does anyone know of anything similar but cheaper?
thanks

Check out some of the danelectro pedals, the cool cat ones preferably, they have decent tone on a budget.

um i am using a crate amp currently (and it pretty much sucks) thats why I need a "heavy" sound...coz the amp (well at least from my experience) wont mess up a heavy sound too bad like it messes up my clean sound

I picked up my Boss Turbo Distortion for like $40 from my local Music Go Round.

Maybe something like a used Boss DS-2?

honestly i would hold off on pedals untill you got a better amp. But if you cant than a cheap tubescreamer clone will do what you want.

Danelectro gets knocked quite a bit... but some of their pedals are pretty cool, especially the clones.

it's so cool to hate Gibson, even the federal Department of Justice hates them.

+1 on the DS-1. It's much cheaper and sounds good to me.
