Right now in my pedals line up im using Digitech Death Metal and Hot Head Pedals. the death metyal is no problem for most stuff up until i get to needing a softer more harmonic tone for strumming riffs (my band is not your normal band) the problem im running into is i can get the right tone with my hot head but i have to leave it on under my Death Metal pedal and i get some ****ty sounds with that. what should i do/use for my lighter sounds?

use an overdrive pedal... i reccomend the Boss OS-2... it has a color knob to fade between overdrive and distortion, so you can have it "clean but intense" with overdrive for lighter riffs, or mudd it up with some distortion.. it's the most versetile pedal i have ever used
Learn the fine art of tap dancing. That, or get a multi-fx pedal (different settings to different pedals on it)
