the BOSS DS-1 isnt all THAT wonderful. I use it through a clean amp setting, and the picking is still rather muddy and just, bleh sounding at times. However, if you happen to be a player of punk or another genre that uses primarily power chords, the pedal's very good for those

did anyone see the new cheerios that have been put out? the're fruity flavored. so basicly its a ripoff of fruitloops.

No they're gay cheerios

Jenny needs to sow her wild oats with random Gibsons and Taylors she picks up in bars before she settles down with a PRS.

no not digitech...they are so digital that its embarassing

Boss isnt too bad. Not the best..
The best idea is to go into a store, and try out the pedals. My best suggestion is go for the Digitech pedals. they have multiple distortion pedals, ranging in amount of distortion. I personally use a Bad Monkey Overdrive Pedal and a Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal.
I'd go with a BOSS Metal-Zone.
It's a little pricey, but worth it.

what do the frets actually do apart from seperating one note from another?

id go with a line6 uber metal

boss makes nice effects, but their distortions completely suck IMO

or... for more variety, a rocktron silver dragon. gives a nice tube overdrive and can also give a reallllly heavy sound when cranked
PRS Custom SE
Shit Strat
line6 spider II 112 (worst choice of my life)
Squier 10 watt (sounds better than the spider)
Digitech rp200
Rocktron Silver Dragon

he's right, and he plays prs so that's proof.

I have one it's my favorite thing in my pedalboard, if I lost it or got it stolen I'd kill someone, you can get kickass distortion out of it easily but tone's tweak-necessary...and to boot you get a noise gate and scoop
