I am planning to buy a tube distortion and a tube overdrive for metal. But my band plays other genres too, like rock, pop, punk, rock n roll, funk, shred, etc . Im thinking of getting a Blackstar HT-DISTX and a Digitech Bad monkey pedal. Is that a great combo? or can you please give me more opinions on what to get. thank you
Metal is my RELIGION, Judas is my priest.
The Blackstar pedals don't sound very good. Seymour Duncan Twin Tubes are much better. Look into those, and perhaps a Visual Sound Jekyll and Hyde. Or any of their other lines. They make good stuff.

The bad monkey is fine. Oh. what amp are you using?
I'm putting my GAS on hold
for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.

Don't judge me.
If you're using a tube amp, go with the Seymour Duncan pedals. If you're using a solid state (like I am), I'd say go for the Blackstar pedals. I just bought a Blackstar HT-Dual (like literally an hour and a half ago), and I must say, it brought my Vox Valvetronix XL to a life that I didn't even know it had. The Bad Monkey should be pretty good to bring even more out of whatever you get.

Just my two cents.
