Hey all,

So here is what I wanna know....I play pop-punk, punkrock (yeah, don't hate me for that...I just like that kind of music ) and I'm about to buy a new boss pedal.
Now I was wondering which would be the most appropriate for my style of music (I want something similar to bilnk182 sound).
And ...what's the difference between Overdrive pedals and Distorsion pedals?

tnx
How would you like to be an egg? You only get laid once. It takes 4 minutes to get hard, 2 minutes to get soft. You share your box with 9 other guys. But worst of all: the only chick that ever sat on your face was your mother. So cheer up...

Are you sure?
What about the DS-2 turbo?

I've never tried the DS1, but my mate has a DS2 and it's a pretty good pedal for the price.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

You'll want distortion for pop punk.

What amp are you using?

I have a peavey studio chorus.
But usually on gigs I get some "on stage" amps...so different each time

not an option....in here the only store is a crappy one that can only order pedals once you pay for it -.-
