I'm looking to get another stomp box to add to my pedalboard. I play in standard, flat and drop d tunings. I play rock somewhere in the vein of 3 Doors Down, Shinedown, Fuel, Seven Mary Three, any 90's grunge or pop rock band. Anyways, right now I'm running a....

Boss DSD-2 Sampler Delay, Boss TU-2 Tuner, Electro Harmonix Holy Grail Reverb, Dunlop Crybaby 535Q Multi-Wah, Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer, MXR M-101 Phase 90 and Amp Switch through an ESP LTD EC 400 (EMG 81/60) into a Marshall JTM60.

I'm looking to add either another distortion and possibly chorus pedal. Any suggestions. Right now, I'm looking at a Pro Co Rat. I need a distortion with massive sustain that I can use for leads on the clean channel, also to give me another distorted/overdriven tone besides my OD channel. I also need it for a boost/thicken upper for my OD channel. I already have a Tube Screamer for that, but like I said, I want another tonal option.

Thoughts?

The vintage/american proco rat sounds like the perfect thing for modern rock and as a different sound than your OD channel. It's actually the only thing that comes to mind with what you've described. Good pick.

krank distortus maximus

pricey but versatile, and can double as a impromptu preamp with a lower gain setting like the tubescreamer

turbo. Be warned that rat is quite warm and non sterile in comparision to the ds-1. I much prefer it personally. It has a slightly warmer, fuzzier and more overdrivey element to it.

Your missing one very important thing necessary on every board. DELAY!! I could make a recommendation, but don't know your price range.

I actually have a delay. It's an old school Boss DSD-2. It's the delay/sampler one.

I think the Turbo has less distortion. I would get the RAT2

Might pick up another one. A local store has both a Boss DD-5 and a Line 6 Echopark for about $50 each.
