Woo!

Should be here Wednesday.
With my setup, should I get a good LoG, Black Dahlia, or other metal band tones?

If not, a more classic rock, or modern rock (Velvet Revolver) sound?

With a DS-1? No. You could get those tones with your guitar straight into your Vox.

I don't like the onboard distortion.

Maybe it's how you have your EQ set. How is it?

I hope you like it!

When I tried one it was way to shrill for me....

just preference I guess.

I ended up getting a metal muff and I'm really happy with it.

Good luck!

I like my metal zone. However, it's a bit trebly. I also don't like changing the EQ every 2 seconds (dumb excuse, but really... it is great for 80s metal, and such), and I wanted a good pedal with lots of mid/bass.

My neighbor also has a BOSS EQ (7band one... the one that is 100 bucks :|), and I'm trying to get it off of him real cheap.

The only pedals Lamb of God use are flangers and overdrives. They're only used for leads too. Lamb of God tone is pure amp drive. I assume that Black Dahlia would be using amp drive too.

I have a Vox and love it. The distortion is great if you know how to use it. I never turn it up past 3 on the Marshal models because it becomes muddy. Also the lows are a bit farty but that can change immensely with a EQ pedal in front of the amp. The eq on board is no good for the distortion (Marshal) models so what I usually do is max out all the onboard eq to get the best tone and then take some of the muddiness off with the eq pedal. A trick learned from other forums.

I tell you instead of the DS-1, the GE-7 will do wonders on the VOX.

Cheers.

Mark Morton uses a Rocktron wah as well though (the cat moan one ).

DS-1... wow dude did you actually research this pedal before you bought it? its a toy... Overdrives coupled with tube amp gain are how to get the metal.... not ****ty distortion, unless, you have keeley mod it for you!
#20
the keeley mod increases gain, makes it more gritty and fuzzy. but it doesn't really make it better. and stacked on tube amp overdrive... yuck. i say no to it.

Running any distortion pedal in front of a solid state amp is not generally gonna make it sound good... (yeah i know its hybrid, but it doesnt sound good with pedals)
#22
I thought the VOX absolutely sucked for metal. I would definatly prefer a Spider over one.

The DS1 should give you a better gain tone when you find a good channel to pair it with.

I would probably put the DS1 over some sort of low gain, not clean, but not modern tone, set the amps mids fairly high, as well as the bass and cut the treble back. Should be close to LoG for less than the price of a Mark IV.
