i want to know what kind of distortion skynyrd uses, is it normal distortion or a fuzz. how would the little big muff pi work for their sound?
I'm pretty sure its just natural overdrive from tube amps
Big Muff would not work at all.
what overdrive pedal then? what about a zakk wylde overdrive? hows this pedal sound for classick rock and some metal.(metallica,megadeth,ozzy) any other suggestions would help.
you should probably look at more vintage ODs like the tubescreamer
Well what do you want, Skynyrd or Metallica/Megadeth/Ozzy. I don't think your going to get satisfying results for both in one pedal. The Skynyrd tone is rich overdrive, the other bands you listed are metal.
try an TS808 of something. i woulld guess that skynyrd used some fuzz faces in the early days, they were big into clapton/cream/
