hey guys what is the sound of a distortion, what i mean about that is a specific distortion, you know, overdrive, drive, metal. May i know the different kinds of distortions? And what they sounds like?

well my main target why im asking this is because, no, just read my other thread. Somebody posted a youtube vid there, an acoustic with a distortion sounds like a "real" elec. Guitar.
The simple explanation is that distortion boxes square the sound wave, thereby creating that "distorted" sound. It looks like this:

Fuzz, overdrive and distortion tend to describe the amount and tonal characteristics of the distortion produced. Your ears are the best judge of what you want.
