Hi guys, I am in need of a decent disortion pedal as the overdrive channel on my amp is really terrible (its ok i guess but the E string sounds terrible for some reason). It is called something MeridianAK15G.

My guitars that I am currently using is a Les Paul Junior and a Stratocaster.

Thanks

that's crap...
you'll have a bad tone cause of your parents then...
good luck with wasting money on pedals then
probably a distortion would be good.
but SS amps don't go good with pedals tho.

You can't go wrong with a Boss ds1, it's good for you seeing as you've got a bad amp (these guys are right, there's not much point in buyin a really expensive pedal until you get a better amp) and it's a classic distortion pedal!


And next time you're getting a new amp, consult us first

SS means solid state, as in an amp that doesn't have tubes. If you're not sure about all that stuff, use the searchbar, I'm sure there's a thread all about tubes and solid states

Crappy amp + ds-1 = CHAOS! Do not get a ds1 ever. One of the worst pedals I'v ever used. Well, if you have the chance to get the older model, why not. They sound better than the new ds-1's
