Alright, my b-day is tomorrow and my grandma mailed me 35 bucks and I was wondering if UG thinks that will be enough to buy me a decent distortion pedal. I play AC/DC but I also play heavier metallica and stuff. What kind of pedal would have that versatility?
For a distortion that isn't digital sounding and gives you a nice crunch, you'll want at least twice that

The Metal Muff would probably do them all if you could save for it.
