can i have some suggestions? I have a Roland Cube but its lead is a bit fuzzy for my style
Here's a couple i am looking at I don't want to get too expensive

Boss SD-1 SUPER OverDrive Pedal
Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal
Boss OD-3 OverDrive Pedal
Boss DN-2 Dyna Drive Overdrive Pedal

Which one do you guys recommend? By the time I get a pedal, I will already have my PRS SE custom and I have the earlier mentioned Roland (though I dream of getting an orange sometime). I listen to music like:

Santana, Led Zeppelin, Nickelback, Journey, Nirvana, Chris Daughtry, Coldplay, 3 doors down, Three days grace, Clapton, and Bon Jovi.

P.S. I have looked at tube screamers but something about them im not too crazy when it comes to ibanez

I hate all of those pedals, and I hate Boss in general. All of them sound extremely thin to me.

Check out Fulltone and Visual Sound; I've heard a lot of good things about them.

Go ahead and cross the DS-1 off your list. IMO compared to the others it's not that good, you could do way better for the price.

eh i wouldnt think pedals would sound much better than the effects already on-board. just as cliche as it may be. use what you have now and save up for a new amp.

I recommend that you look outside of Boss.

And ignoring the Tubescreamer series (perhaps THE overdrive pedal) simply because "im not too crazy when it comes to ibanez" is a little silly.

Well, in that case, try the Maxon OD. Basically the same pedal, different brand.

You're not going to get anything significantly better than the Cube's onboard distortion from a distortion pedal. Might be worth looking at an EQ pedal though.

yea an EQ would be a good decision. no need to spend too much money on one though. get a Danelectro fish n chip. its like 30 bucks and will greatly enhance your tone.

Save your money and buy a decent tube amp that will actually take pedals and get some use out of em. Problem with solid states with on board effects like the roland is that they don't usually take to pedals very well. That Roland is a great SS amp and the effects on it are basically Boss effects. You won't notice much difference and the pedals might sound worse into that SS amp.
Get a little Valve Junior and a Blues Driver. They go absolutely great together.
Ibanez ARC300DVS plugged into a Valve Jr. with a 1x12 custom Ear Candy cab and a blues driver. (Too many guitars to list.)

well, if you wana find sum good distortions but dont know what to do, then just get a digitech distorion factory or an expression factory. i recomend the expression cuz you can have a few extra little effects while still having the 7 different distiortions you can try for the thingy

I've been told by the owner that if my face isn't like this... When I first play it, then I'm probably on crack. And I've been instructed to take a picture with my face like that if it happens!
