How's it going bros? My name is Pewdiep-- wait, wrong forum.

Anyway, I'm looking for a nice distortion pedal to complement my ESP Viper and Fender Blues Jr. amp. Heaviness of the stuff I play rank from Queen to Dream Theater. And my budget is about $200. Any recommendations?

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I'd recommend the Plextortion over the Triple Wreck for what you want. It's a bit more well-rounded.

I've owned the Wampler Plextortion and Wampler Triple Wreck. The Triple Wreck is still my main distortion. You'll be able to get a Queen sound easier on the Triple Wreck than you will be able to get a Dream Theater sound on the Plextortion. I thought the Plextortion was actually more of a one trick pony. It's great for 70s and 80s rock.
The Triple Wreck is far more tweakable in my opinion. I've spent a few years with the Triple Wreck now. I still haven't found a pedal I'd replace it with.
Unfortunately like Spambot_2 says, you'll have to find it used to get under the 2 bill mark.
Good luck and let us know what you end up with.

I guess it depends on what you play more often. Don't get me wrong, the Triple Wreck is fantastic (it was my primary distortion tone for years until just recently) and very very smooth, so for Petrucci-type leads, it's excellent. But the Plextortion is a bit crunchier and I think it suits rhythm a bit better.
