Hey guys. I'm looking for a nice pedal probably around $80-$150 that would sound good for punk rock.

A Pedal that has a fair amount of mids and would offer a sound with not too much distortion but still delivers a punch.

The sound i wanna get is basically a pop punk blink 182 sound which is not too agressive like new found glory or something.

I'll probably end up buying a MXR Dyna Comp aswell to give heaps of attack.

What do you guys think ?

That's the advantage of being such a distance from Yianni. I can continue to live my life without fear of stumbling upon his dark terror.

metal distiortion usually has heaps of low end and high end and not much mids. so a metal pedal wouldn't be great for punk where its completely opposite.

I'm no expert here, but wouldn't buying a pedal be the opposite of the spirit of punk?

I'd suggest buying a guitar for that price, piping it through a crappy amp with the gain jacked up, and barring the door so the cops don't come to stop your jams.
