What is your opinion on this? I play through a Laney VC15 amp and i am looking for heavier drive than what is built into the amp. I play stuff like screamo/heavy rock/hardcore music.

cheers.

I wouldn't really buy a Digitech pedal, every digitech pedal I've bought made me hate Digitech even more and more lol. It has a really bad tone I'd go for a marshall pedal, I also think people here often suggest BOSS pedals (thou I don't use Boss so I wouldn't be able 2 reccomend)

i had a digitech grunge at one point. one of my first pedals. i thought it sounded good then, but playing one this summer....no. it's got a lot of loose, gritty distortion and is not very versatile at all. though, that's just my opinion. try one out and if you like it, go for it

buy an overdrive pedal and use it to boost your gain channel. the Boss SD-1 or an Ibanez Tubescreamer are two you may want to check out.

whats the difference between the overdrive and distortion pedals? I just presumed distortion were just more heavy sounding?

ill read about the tube sscreamer, boss ds2 and sd1

What do you guys think of the Boss OS2 for screamo/posthardcore music?

The grunge pedal was first put into production in the early 90's by DOD, and the pedal was basically a marketing scheme. It had cheap parts and was overpriced. Todays version is the same way, except with even cheaper parts.

Ive heard that the distortion is quite muddy and really not that great, but that the overdrive mode is amazing.

well would I be using overdrive or distortion?

im guessing distortion for heavier music?

i heard the distortion plus isnt so great, but i cant find any soundclips to listen to it
#17
found a soundclip of the mxr distortion plus + and i really liked the sound of it.
#18
it's a great pedal, it has a lot of versitility, and Randy Rhoads used one. It's only about 60-70 bucks too, so it's quite a bargain

Its £75 GBP which is too expensive for me. I like the Metal Muff and thats only £55, even though thats still rather pricey, but I guess i will use it for a long time

anyone got anything to say about electro harmonix metal muff?
#20
electro-harmonix make some really awesome pedals, i'd go for it if i were you
