What would be a good beginner distortion pedal for my electric guitar?
I've been using a Behringer UM100 Pedal ever since I started playing (2 years ago) and I'm happy with it. imo it's a perfect begginers distortion.
Boss DS-1 is ok. It gets bad reviews because compared to most distortion pedals it sin't very good. But for the price and especially if you are a beginner it will certainly do the trick.
Try any of the digitech pedals (Hot Head, Grunge or Death Metal) THey're really cheap, but they have great tone to them. As a beginner, I'd go for the Hot Head, as it can pretty much cover any genre.
Hey, I think im probably gonna go for the digitech Death metal. thanks guitar monkey
