If you've seen the Scott pilgrim movie you know what I'm talking about its like this really dirty sound almost like the speaker is ripped up.

Try out a Vox AC15/30 or an Orange, and really crank them up. You want to hit that spot where crunch starts to turn to mud.

Get an electroacoustic, run it through a fuzz pedal into distorition pedal, and then into cranked tube electric guitar amp.

"...Truck, truck, truck!"

Edit: If you had gone with that RP355 I could have sent you the settings I use on my GNX4 patch that I use for Sex Bob-omb covers, but I have no idea how to do that on your new Boss pedal. You'd still have to wait a few weeks, because I'm about 900 miles away from my GNX4 right now.

I actually just had some luck. I turned the gain all the way up and the over drive on, on the amp, then did the same thing on my mep, as well as my buddy's stompbox. So I now know that three levels of distortion make the sound, the only problem is its so noisy it literally spikes every time I remove my hand from the neck.

Yeah, I wired the Strat I play those songs with to have 2 volumes so I can turn down the neck and use the 5-way as a kill between songs.

I'm just using the volume pedal on my mep lol though I am trying to find a way to achieve it without the other pedal mostly because it isn't mine and partly because I feel like if I turn the volume up above 3 my speaker will shoot across the room like a rocket lol

Can your MFX pedal do fuzz and distortion at the same time? Or maybe just fuzz and an amp model with the volume and the gain dimed on them?

BTW, I didn't wire the Strat like that to play Sex Bob-omb covers--I did that several years before I even saw the movie. I just like kill switches but wanted it stealth.

I would say get an acoustic clean sound, the run some kind of fuzz pedal through with all knobs up to an obnoxious level
A bassist is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

tbh i dont even know ive only had it about a day, its the boss me-70 ill check online but i did get a pretty close sound when i set the one on my amp to the ms drive (im using a zoom fire 15 modeling amp so i have tons of drives) and the mep to a fuzz with the gain on both dimed(i like that ive never heard it before)

and oh yeah i realize that lol, im actually not doing covers either, im just looking for a new sound for the band im in and i really dug theirs so i basically wanted that + my style + single coils lol

When I'm stuck with my SSS Strat, I often use the GNX4's SC=>HB mode. Don't know if your Boss MFX will do that or not.

actually i kind of like the way the single coils sound with that level of distortion i have an hss setup and it actually sounds a lot less trashed when im using the hb lol. the sc's are whats giving it that really dirty sound. kind of like their telling me "what are you doing i cant handle this" while the humbucker is like "yeah whatever no problem "lol

Maybe you could use an Ibanez Fz7 Fuzz pedal. BTW, A question I have for anybody who knows what they're doing, what are good settings for my fuzz pedal to get this sound? I'm new to the website and I can't figure out how to start a forum and I just wanted to know.

First of all, the WMD Geiger Counter will generate the Sex Bob-omb tone:
