Hey guys
im interested in a build your own clone MXR Distortion/ DOD 250 copy
Any one know if itll push my amp into metal territory?
Will it need an EQ?
im playing a jackson dkmg through a marshall dsl 401
if not, im thinking of a tube screamer copy or just a boost pedal
what do you guys think?
Thanks

/\ Bleh, don't do scooped mids. You won't be heard in a band situation very well at all.

Anyways, I'd say go for a Tubescreamer. They're meant to be perfect for boosting, and you'll be able to "eq" with the tone knob.

There are many other overdrives out there, I was just saying out of the ones you mentioned. I havn't had that much experience with OD pedals, but the rest of the forum I'm sure will.
