  • what is the best high gain distortion pedal?

    I currently have a Metal Zone and hate the **************** out of it, I am looking for a high disto that has a lot of bass and power. The metal zone seems more thrash to me I want sludge/stoner/doom type. I already have a fuzz.

              Early reports seem to indicate the new Emma holds the title.

                I love my PisdiYAUwot. Would also like to try the Reeza II.

                  I have the Riot and the PisdiYAUwot.

                  They're REALLY different.

                  The Riot is really grunty... almost Brown Soundish. It's like the best hotrodded Marshall.

                  The PisdiYAUwot sits more in the 5150/Recto camp. It's more open sounding, with VERY versatile EQ controls. It's got a bit of "grain" to it that helps it cut and be agressive, but DOESN'T have the "fizz" that most high-gain pedals do.

                  It's pretty well made. It's what I hoped the ReezaFRATzitz would be.

                    Yeah. The PisdiYAUwot is a very modern sounding high gain pedal. Every clip I've heard of the Riot puts it squarely in the high-gain Marshall arena

                        Before you buy another pedal to replace it, try adding a $25 mod from Monty Allums to it. Changes the Metal Zone into a beast. Check it out.

                          I really wouldn't call the Mastortion a high gain distortion. If the amp is a little dirty though, then it is exactly what the OP is looking for - big aggressive as ****************, huge bass, and not too tight (great for stoner metal type stuff). Just the Mastortion into the clean channel actually has less gain than I thought it would (still sounds good though - see Kayzers youtube demo).

                            I'm on the wait list for a polished box Openhaus. I want to pick up something in the meantime though. I've been eyeing the Riot, and the PisdiYAUwot. I loathe the color of the Riot though, and I'm digging the clips of the PisdiYAUwot (even though that isn't the style of music I play).

                              I have the Pisdi and the Riot, and spent a BUNCH of time with the Openhaus.

                              Describe your needs.
