Alright, I finally have the hard earned cash to go out and buy something to
replace my abyssmal Boss Metal Zone (which will be up for sale soon on
Ebay). Now comes the task of finding a replacement that will give me the
sound I want.
The problem is this: I have access to certain distortion pedals in the area
where I live. These are Ibanez pedals, Boss Pedals, DOD Pedals, etc. I have
tried out most of the distortion pedals in their catalog and know what they
sound like. I would like to hear people's opinions on some distortion pedals
that I do not have access to because they are not available at any of the
dealers who are located in my area. So here goes...what do you guys think
MXR Distortion pedal
Pro Co Rat
Tech 21 Comptortion
Akai Shred-O-Matic Distortion
My distortion needs: harmonic distortion, not neccesarily "scooped mid" or
thrash metal type. Something along the lines of Van Halen to Megadeth range.
Please do not reply if you're gonna tell me to do the following:
1. Go out and try these pedals and see what sounds right to me...I am
already in the process of trying to get my hands on them.
2. Don't recommend anything by Danelectro.
3. Don't tell me to go look at Harmony Central's database. I'm not new to
guitar resources on the Net and I wouldn't be asking you this if I wasn't
looking for some fresh opinions.
