ok I have the Ibanez GTA15R Amp, and i found out it has horrible distortion, but the rest of the amp is pretty nice, and i dont want to chage anything besides the distortion. Now the question is, should i spend about 40-50 bucks on a distortion pedal, or should i invest in a better amp... really dont wanna buy an amp, cause i dont want to spend thaT MUCH MONEY... Is a 50 dollar distortion pedal worth it, will i really be able to tell a big difference?
MOre differnece in an amp, definately.
if you get a really good stompbox it can make a world of difference, but investing in an amp would probably be better.
Get a Jekyll and Hyde ultimate overdrive, it has OD and distortion, so if you ever upgrade to a tube amp the pedal won't be worthless and you can use it to boost the amp's OD.
Amp by far. Just save your money and bare with your amp for now. A good amp will crush the best stompboxes out their on any day. Good Luck
