I'm looking for a new overdrive pedal or maybe even a distortion pedal. I have a great distortion on my amp but I'm just looking for a different flavor. I play hard rock...any suggestions?

what amp and be more specific as to what hard rock means to you. an overdrive in front of a distorted amp is pretty standard. i set my amp up for great rhythm distortion and then goose it with a tubescreamer style overdrive (i have more than one) for a good lead tone. my main amp has 3 channels so i can get clean, somewhat dirty and high gain distortion for rhythm and then goose any of them for leads or a different flavour so to speak for rhythm parts.

also what's your guitar, and what's your budget?

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.

Best bet is to go into a music store and test stuff out. If you don't have access, you can find many YouTube videos, but ts just not the same.

My amp I'd a blackstar I'd. Yes its a modeling amp but it takes pedals well. My guitar is a led Paul standard

modeling amps aren't known for taking pedals well especially distortion of overdrive pedals. your amp has built in overdrive and distortion pedals so to speak so what is wrong with those? also what exact sounds are you going for?

I just wanted a different flavor to mess with. But this amp does take pedals well


ok but again different from what. we don't know what your current tone is like so tough to recommend a different one. a little help.

How about the Behringer OD300. It's both overdrive and distortion so you should have plenty of sounds to try.

Dirt pedals really like to drive the inputs of tube amps harder, rather than modeling amps. They can work but you might just want to look into investing in a tube amp before you get into more drive tones.

what kind of overdriven sound are you looking for?

I've owned a lot of overdrive pedals and my hands down favorite is the Wampler Euphoria. Although I play more jazz/blues/rock than anything else. Its a little pricey but you could find one used for around $100ish.
