  • Recommend me a versatile distortion pedal for my blues junior amp.

    I enjoy playing heavy crunchy marshall british high gain stuff, classic rock, metal, overdriven blues black crowes kinda stuff. Indie rock.

    I had a DS1, but tonally I didnt like it. I had an MI Audio Crunch Box. Sounded good, but it was too much a 1 trick pony.

    I'd like something more versatile with the tones.

    Nothing too expensive fancy/boutique. Under 2 bills. Something that works well with my tweed blues junior.

    My main and only electric is a stock 50's squier classic vibe strat.

      MY buddy had a blues junior and a Fulltone OCD. can get all of those tones. he loves it and I admit it really does sound great. He plays single coils as well. I say give it a go. The joyo ripoff of the OCD is pretty sweet too if you want one for 1/3 the price haha

          Here it is with a DS1 for comparison...

            FD2 sounds great with the BJ. Can't go wrong with a RAT either. If you didn't like the DS-1 the RAT is the next step IMHO.
            Gozer the Traveler. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you.

              Everything about this is correct and factual.

              I'm so proud of everyone in this thread. Rats and fulldrives. Mah boiz.

                I think the FD2 lost a lot of favor over the years, partly because things like the Tim/Timmy came out and partly because Fuller is kind of a dick to a lot of people, but hot damn my orange FD2 sounded amazing with the BJ. I just recently got a RAT and don't know how I lived without one for so long. And I will stand by the awesome, yet narrow minded DS-1 till the end of time. But the RAT does the same thing and more.

                  Keymaster huh? I'd like to run some tests if that's ok.

                  Plus one for a Rat. It might not quite take you to metal territory, but you could always stack it with something.

                    Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night?

                            Another vote for the Fulldrive, it sounds good with the Blues Jr.
