  • OD/Distortion pedal recommandations

    I hate the OD/Dist on my Line6 HD500. Everything else is I like, so I am in the market for either a dual pedal or 2 pedals to run with my DRRI, which has NO OD. I am looking for OD that is touch senstive. I finger pick some licks on quite a few songs during verses that I like somewhat clean, then dirtier on chorus. I like the AC sound. As for DiStortion I love the Plexi sound. The last pedal I owned before being an idiot and selling was MI Audio crunch Box. Then the 2 together you can get a boosted lead sound. Here are some I would like to know your opinion.



    GFS Twin Drive

    VS Jeckyll and Hyde

    Fulltone Full Drive 2

    Carl Martins Plexitone & The AC version (although it is priced a little out of my budget)



    Any other ideas welcomed



    Thanks

        Their pedals sound great and it's a new company run by people who know what they are doing.

                To be honest, I've bought and returned all those you mentioned, with the exception of the GFS. I like the GC-exclusive T-Rex Yellow Drive for OD/Distortion flavors. I don't know if it gives you a Vox sim on one side and a Marshall sim on the other - I play it through a Vox, and it still sounds like Voxy drive with that pedal. It may not do what you're looking for. However, if you're mainly interested in the pedals you mentioned, I may not be of any help, since my preferences are too different from yours.

                        I have the Plexitone and it's an outstanding pedal for what it does, classic rock distortion. It's not much of an overdrive pedal though. I'd go with a TS'ish style pedal as an od to go along with it - I use an old Vox Valvetone, but the world is full of clones

                            Nothing wrong with a Boss SD-1 if you're feeling traditional. If you want to go boutique on a budget, I suggest Noisemaker Effects.
