The distortion in the Slash pedal is apperently complete and utter sh*t and even people who love the wah hates that dist.

Well as said you won't get Slash tone out of a pedal. What amp do you have?

I dunno, my OCD got pretty close sweet child, maybe lead tones (not rhythm) wise . It's the second clip on my profile. Then again, I gues it's part cranking the amp a bit.

Thanks for the help guys. I have a diverse range of taste when it comes to tone, so I have a traynor ycv40 and an American Strat. I plan on trading it in for a Les Paul though. I don't need a Marshall stack though.

the distortion on the wah is sh1t, also you cant use the distortion unless the wah is turned on so its pointless

yeah....its just awful. the wah itself is fantastic and if you like the sound of slashs wah then you will love the wah on this pedal..... but never use the distortion!

Slash uses an MXR custom audio electronics OD/Boost pedal.... doubt much of his sounds can be in anyway attributed to this pedal, probably uses it for a solo boost, but he still uses it! check it out....
