Hey guys, im looking for a good distortion pedal. I play in a ska/punk band and I need something warm. For my references, im looking for something in the field of Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, also some punk. I need something warm, but wit ha little attack, I am the only guitar in my band.

Im using a Marshall50DFX. Not the best touring amp mind you... :P

I'd say a boss DS-1 would suit you fine, its the bog standard distortion pedal. though to be honest, you're not gonna get any good sound out of that amp. you're gonna need a nicer amp to play that stuff, how much cash could you scrape together?

$210.00 now >.<. What do you recommend? My friend is selling a hot rod deluxe? For $270.00. Barely used.

Yes to the Hot Rod! It can get you those sprakly ska cleans. Then get a DS-1, it's a pretty decent distortion pedal.

get it... thats a fantastic amp, especially at that price. you reckon your friend would let you have the amp for $210 now if you gave them the rest later?

the fender is a great amp, and has an ok drive channel, that with an overdrive such as the (cheap) boss sd-1 or digitech bad monkey or (more expensive) maxon or ibanez tubescreamers will sound great for ska, and will work well for punk too.

Not if I go to sell the MG, how much is the max do you think?? 75? 100? The thing did cost me about 275 and I had it for 3 and a half years. It has a couple of small nicks in it, but nothing eye opening. Everything works fine. Just got it a power cable also.
