i just decided to get the peavy valveking 112 and buy a certain pedal to give it the "dirt" or "crunch" that a solid state amp has with still the tube amp tone. when i played the valveking in stores, it didnt have enough distortion or overdrive i though. but people reccomended buying a distortion or overdrive pedal. wich pedals should i get and why? (no budget but has to be a reasonal price). i play metal. and some small giggs, i have a ibanez rg 350dx. thank you

what were the EQ settings that you used on the valveking?

i'd say a tubescreamer or bad monkey if you want to save money. don't get a distortion pedal though, it's completely unecessary

you've allready gone wrong just by mentioning the pedal

Just try out some pedals, and choose the one that you like the most. Don't be judged by the branch of what other people think of it. If you think it sounds great, buy it!

Hey, delete your other thread. The really long one. You do that by editing the first post.

But before you do, read this:
https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showpost.php?p=14800881&postcount=113

That's my two cents.

My 2 cents:

I say he should leave it as maybe someone else can learn from it.

He should delete his 2nd pedal thread tho this morning (Edit: looks like he did).

Jdog, I don't think you need a disti pedal right away. Get an Overdrive first. I like my Bad Monkey and never tried the Tubescreamers.

Also, I think the amp has enough gain, maybe too much. I usually have volume at 4 and gain at 4 with gain boost on and OD on.

again, just my 2 cents. nothing wrong with the Randall idea.

Ts-9 or, if you are on a budget Bad Monkey, SD-1, or TS-7....Use it as a boost to run the tubes harder = epic br00t4lz

Anyways, threadstarter... I'd go for a bad monkey or TS. No need for a distortion pedal.

But, if you NEED that SS type distortion, i'd go for a Metal Muff.
