I bought a Blackstar Artisan 30. I wanted a 2x12 combo and tubes so for the price I paid for it, I coudn't beat it.

Now I need a distortion pedal. Any suggestions? I've seen people recommending Blackstar's HT distortion pedals. They're a little pricey at $250.

What I'd like, without going with something like a digitech that's going to have 50 million settings, it a distortion pedal that has at least 3 channel settings: off, lower Marshally crunch gain, and balls to the walls blow your ears out gain.

Any suggestions for me to start looking at?

just out of curiosity, why didn't you get the series one, it's about the same price, and does what you want

The blackstar pedals are really good quality, they may be pricey but as with anything you get what you pay for.

Also the VOX satchurator is a great distortion.

Try them out with your gear though.

Because I loved the tone out of the Artisan 30 and I paid less than $900 for a new one.

why not just get 3 different pedals? that'd work too, and you wouldn't have to narrow down your search anywhere near as much.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

3? It's got an amazing clean sound. I'd just need two distortions.

My last guitar amp was a Hughes Triamp. Sold it for camera equipment when I quit playing guitar and besides, it's way too big for where I play now. I did perfectly fine without having a ton of effects, just the distortion channels and the cleans.

touche, i misread your post. 2 different pedals, then.
