Basically I'm looking for a pedal that will give me a different kind of distortion to my amps one. The amp I have is a Marshall JCM2000 DSL401 with a few mods. The amps own distortion is typical marshall really, so pretty thick.

I'm after a pedal that can get me a thin, defined distortion similar to the one in this song


All help much appreciated!
Yep, single coils if you want a thinner tone. However the Boss DS-2 is a good bet with a few little adjustments.

Single coils, less bass and mid and you're all set!

Yeh, I have tried that but I can hear the single coil twang which I love clean, but don't really like it in distortion.

i have no opinion on the matter since i've never tried one, but you're gonna get flamed.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Well, i'ts certainly thin sounding...

TS, Proco Rat is probably a good place to start looking but it's possible that you could get that sound just with an EQ pedal or overdrive with the amps distortion.
Actually called Mark!

oh yes certainly, it's like having crappy early Black Metal production value in a box!

You know it actually sounds less useless if you think about it that way.
