Hey about 1 month ago i bought a digitech Rp80 pedal board and it's great. I love all the effects but i need some better distortions because i play rhythm guitar in a band. And this guy has offered to trade me a Boss Ds-1 for the digitech rp80. Should i do it? What do you think?

i dont know how much the digitech board is but the guys offering you one distortion pedal for a pedal board with multifx, that seems like a bit of a crap deal to me, just buy a boss distortion pedal and keep the digitech pedal board the ds-1isnt very expensive either.

like i said i dont need the multieffects because i am rhythm guitarist in our band. And the distortion on thier sucks. So i dont know what to do.

sell your pedal to the guy. go buy some distortion pedal or something.

Don't trade it; the DS1 can be bought for very small money and it's a crap pedal to start with. Don't buy a metal zone either.

What amp do you use and what sound do you want? There are lots of different pedals for different sounds.

D'oh that's a really tough one. AC/DC's tone is nearly clean. Most of their distortion comes from the power tubes.

To simulate that sound on your amp on a budget I would recommend the Marshall Jackhammer which is dirt cheap. Use very mild gain, lots of treble and mids and low bass. And turn it up!
