Do u think that adding distortion (punkish/grungy) to a slight overdriven sound might give me a good heavy distortion? I have a digitech df7 that i can set to the dod 250 and add my digitech grunge distortion to it. Think it might work or have tried something similar before?
i stack my metal muff onto my tube amps distortion a lot, but it usually doesnt work very well with pedals, plus those Digitech digital distortion like the distortion factory seem to completely take over your tone (i have a metal master and it does the same thing, great for when i have to use a guitar with single coils as a backup) so i dont know how well it would work, youll have to experiment with Eqing and all that to see if you can get some useable sounds.
just set the onboard distortion on your amp, then add you pedal. Just use a noise gate. I did it way back with a digitech rp50 and it gave me a heavy ass sound. Zakk wylde is known for doing it, nd its not too shabby.
well, thanks i guess. the thing is that i play clean parts in my band, so i can't use the onboard distortion.
