Is it a good idea to use a Zakk Wylde overdrive, as a boost for solos after my other dist pedal (MXR 151 double shot dist.), or you have some other suggestion, like, to use some micro amp pedal or so?
If it means anything, I play metal.
My gear:
Jackson RR3 moded (EMG 81/85, OFR)
Jackson JS30 (with Duncan JB/Jazz from my RR3)
Peavey studio pro 112
MXR Double shot dist.
MXR 10 band EQ
Crybaby 535Q

you could but it would sound bad. use an EQ or compression sustainer pedal.

i use the Boss EQ-7 and it does the job marvelously, the only thing is, boosting volume sucks up battery about twice as fast as using an effect with equal volume (like distortion with volume equal to clean, etc.)

I have not had much success getting a good tone out of combining two distortion pedals. The best combination for me is to use the amp's distortion and using the pedal as a mild distortion/boost. I like one pedal on the clean channel with a good EQ the best.

I only want to use it because when I start soloing, with my band, I cant here myself because of the rhythm guitar, but when I'm playing riffs I'm louder then him.
