I've currently got a Stagg Flying V and a Roland Microcube, and I've saved up to buy a distortion pedal of some kind. Before you say something like 'but a pedal won't sound good with your amp', which I've heard alot of before, I just want the pedal so I can switch from clean to distortion without having to get up and change my amp settings. Anyway, I was looking at the Boss DS-1 or DS-2, and I was wondering whether I should get one of those or, instead, get a metal pedal (i.e. Boss Metal Zone or something). I play a lot of metallica, nirvana, ac/dc, but mostly metallica. My budget is 0-100 GBP, so price isnt too much of an issue. What do you guys think I should go for?

I doubt you'll get anything better than the Cube's onboard distortion from a pedal - an EQ pedal could come in handy though.

What are some EQ pedals I can look into?
