Well heres another which pedal? Thread. I cant decide between getting a boss SOD-1 And a boss DS-1 Or just a ts9 tubescreamer. I play classic rock and blues only I have an epi les paul standard and a vox ad30vt. Thanks.
Most (distortions esp) boss pedals suck IMO. They suck the life from any analog signal. Go with the TS
Suhr Custom, Flaxwood Rautia or Grosh Tele thru
HBE Medicine Bawl Wah
Analogman BiComp
Texas Two Step OD
Fulltone Ultimate Octave/Fuzz
Boss CE-2
TC Nova Delay
SLO-100, 65 London or Bogner Shiva
Ask me about any of this stuff!
i have a vox valvetronix and it does not like overdrive/distortion pedals at all. so i wouldn't advise it.
Rig Winter 2017:

Fender Jazzmaster/Yamaha SG1000
Boss TU-3, DS-2, CS-3, EHX small stone, Danelectro delay
Laney VC30-112 with G12H30 speaker, or Session Rockette 30 for smaller gigs
Elixir Nanoweb 11-49 strings, Dunlop Jazz III XL picks
Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp
Ill go to the store today then and try a tube screamer out with the the valvetronix. I need a little info still though. Maybe some different pedal suggestions.
Modellers don't like pedals at all. But TS if you're commited/it works.

Ibanez SR506BM
Ashdown Little Giant 1000w
