Hey! I need a couple overdrives so recommend me some. I have a Boss SD-1 that I plan on moding soon so that'll be my mid gain stuff. what else do i need I kidna want a Mesa in a box distortion sound. also a nice low-er gain sound.

and whatever pedal that For a pedal board you think i need.so throw some out there I need a Delay and phaser. a nice wah. and some other stuff so just gimme some ideas.

I don't wanna spend more than 70 on each pedal I'm willing to make acceptions if they're worth it. I know there are alot of Boss haters out there but if you can tell me the ones worth getting cause thats all my store really stocks boss and Digitech.

wait until you get the YCV 50 before testing Overdrives. How are you going to know what one box will sound like if you can't test the pedal with the amp.

A blues junior does not sound the same as a traynor, so an overdrive that you love on the blues junior, it might sound like garbage on the traynor. Besides, 70 $ won't get you a good overdrive anyways. hold off on the OD until you own the amp, than post again

Hey!
Well, I wake up really early, have nothing to do, and then I have a lot of free time during the day right now, looking for a new job, but I'm lazy. Only taking one class, and I check my email like a madman.

EDIT: And when I AM at my current job, I don't really do anything because I'm lazy, so I'm on UG. Better than actually working..

If you're modding pedals, I would like to suggest the Boss MT-2 pedal modified... It's really nasally stock, but with the Monte Allums mods for instance, the thing is beautiful for high
gain....

I think that it's going to depend a bit on your amp...

I won't necessarily say "Mesa" that's kind of tough for any particular pedal to replicate based on the Rectification tubes...,

Would probably get you closer than any stock distortion pedal there is though....

The particular mod I did REALLY smoothed out the gain structure and dynamics of the pedal... Clarified the sound and gave a really smooth but still spikey and aggressive tone....

I did the SD-1 mod as well, and it turned out cherry...

Also, Monte Allums has a rectifier mod for the DS-1... I've actually purchased the pedal and the mod kit as a gift for a friend's B'day and will be doing this mod either tonight or tomorrow... I can let you know how that turns out as well....

Ok, I did the mod to the DS-1 and on my amp, it definitely had a decent recto quality sound... But here's the deal, my amp is an AT-212 tri mode rectifier, and my clean channel has a 'bright switch' that I always have on.... it actually completely changes the characteristics of the distortion pedals I run through it.... I experimented with the pedal with and without the 'bright switch' engaged, and I think that the modded DS-1 and MT-2 could possibly give you a sound you dig... Both are very tight.. The MT-2 is going to be a bit more 'spikey' and the DS-1 a bit more even and edgy... I doubt you'd be disappointed with either, but the DS-1 will provide the lower end gain sound better than the MT-2...

I would recomend either.

You can't beat the price on a DS1 anyways, $40 plus a $20 mod kit from Monte Allums and you'll have a better pedal than more expensive ones.
