Just wondering if anyone can help me on this. I am a fiddle player and I don't ever really use my amp - usually go direct through pedals then into the board. However, was messing around on some Steve Vai tonight and to get a good distortion, I plugged into my Line 6 amp. The green metal setting on distortion ended up being great and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a pedal that would be an equivalent to that setting. I am not planning on bringing my amp around so I need to get a good distortion pedal to add right to the board. Thanks!
Any of the multi effects pedals with amp modeling will do this. If you want line6 stuff, you can look into the pod hd500 and hd300, then there is the boss gt10 and gt100, the zoom G series... It depends on how complex of a pedal you want, but anything with "amp modeling" will do.
