I am in need of a distortion pedal.

i have around $100 dollars Australian to spend.

I play punk, pop-punk and a little metal (eg. misfits, billy talent, My Chemical Romance, Green Day and blink 182)

Thanks for any help

Hmmm a DS-1 is the first thing people go for.
But check out a Rocktron Rampage or a Digitech Black 13?
You might find that these pedal are slightly to high gain though..

Don't go for those two. Try the ds-1 or digitech hot head, those are pretty solid for punk and metal as long as you set them up for your sound.

The MD-2.. my friend had one. I thought it was a bit weak and lacking in tone.
The DS-2 is the one with an extra foot pedal?
Iv never used one so i cant comment but i know that they aren't as popular as the DS-1.

The DS-2 can get you most of those sounds.. for metal I just turn up my amp to about mid gain and voila slayer comes out :P the DS-2 has loads and loads of highs though.. not that you can't get those out with the tone knob but it's a fairly bright sounding pedal. What I like most about it is that it's very clear.. you can still perfectly hear what you're playing. Definitely way better than the DS-1 IMO
The gear is in the profile.

So i will most likely go for either the ds-1 or ds-2.

Is the ds-2, just the ds-1 with a few extras?

Danelectro. dandandandandandan. from what you play, you could use a Fab tone, but that might be a little harsh. go to your store and see if they have the black licorice (i think that was it).

I used the DS-1 in my Misfits cover band a while back, it will do you good. In can get harsh with the tone knob too high, just give it extra low end and pump the highs on your amp and it should sound great.

The DS-2 is quite capable of producing DS-1 like sounds.. but it can do much more than only that. And IMO it's a bit less harsh
