what's up people? i'm thinking of getting a distortion pedal but i don't know wich one, so I was wondering if you could tell me what distortion pedals do these bands use, that would help a lot. thank you.

Arctic Monkeys
The Kooks
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Jimi Hendrix
Franz Ferdinand

What's your budget and what amp are you playing through?

pretty sure Frucsiante of the chilis ues a boss turbo distortion,
hendrix used fuzzes

Edit: cubes sound bad with pedals

be the music, not the scene
I'd suggest going for a DS-2, if you want the Frusciante kind of sound. For everything else, if you're short on money, I'd suggest just going for a DS-1

I cannot leave this thread alone. I cannot get over the sponsored fap. Out of curiosity, can i ask how your mum decided to pay for your fapping material? Why can't you just get it free? WHY?

pedal+modeling amp=bad idea...

Either try and change your settings on your cube or put the cash towards a new amp fund. The cube is a good practice amp but it doesn't mix well with pedals
