Random question of the day, is there a need for two distortion pedals?

I have a Digitech HotHead and am thinking of buying a Digitech Grunge or Death Metal pedal......

Different styles of distortion. Just don't use both at once. And why Digitech?

if you want to have the option of having different tyipes of distortion, you can have as many as you like! the other guitar player in my band has a fuzz and metal zone, never uses the fuzz much anymore but thats just because it doesnt come into our sound

Well, technically, there is no need for any pedals...there are no rules, you do what you want. I myself have 2 dirt pedals and a boost on my board currently, and 3 dirt pedals off my board.
If you need the big gain of the Metal Master or Grunge, and the Hot Head can't satisfy the need, then get it. If you can achieve all your tones you need with the Hot Head, there is no need, unless you want to have one set at some setting and teh other at a different setting...

I was probably no help.

If you want a Death Metal pedal. I'm selling one. There's a link in my sig.

It can get a lot more gain then the hot head thats for sure. It'd be good if you like heavier music.

Take your pick.

I like the Digitech pedals I have, so I figure I will stick with awesome.

And why not use both at once? Wiould I damage the pedals or something?

Not damage them, but most likely your ears with a bloodcurdling scream of high pitched squealing foreshadowing impending doom.
Orr it will make loud spuealing noises.

Dang......... do you guys have a different distortion pedal on separate channels or something?
#15
An itty bitty Ibanez is what I play on.

My dad has a large Peavy amp (with two channels, and switch) but its just so damned big/heavy and my room is so small and cluttered as it is I never use it. I should.

Tomorrow.

Multiple distortion pedals are good for multiple types of distortion.

Like I wouldn't want to have like three DS-1s or Big Muffs in my chain, but I might want one of each.

Dude, a BOSS Super Overdrive (SD-1 or 2) are the best out there...the 1 only gives you Tone, Drive and LEvel but is really great at compressing sound and it gives you a Mesa/Boogie style punch. The 2 has way more features and has a more gritty 80's Megadeth tone.
