  • What's your favorite distortion pedal.And why.

    Mine is an old rat pedal I bought about 20 years ago for 25 bucks.My second fav is those old roadkill pedal's that Guitar center sold back in the 90's.Sound great thru any amp I play.:i

    zvex distortron. Lots of gain, lots of definition. You can play with the switches and shape the tone in a way that you just can't with the usual knobs.

        I'm really into the Big Bite.

        http://bigbitefx.com/index.php i know they endorse me but i wouldnt be playing one unless it sounded good.

        I'm also a big fan of the MI Audio Crunchbox and the Fulltone GT500

            I like the distortion of my amp (Laney LC15) better than any pedal I've tried.

              I would have to say the Rat as well. Reminds me of highschool in the 90's.

                Barber direct drive. Killer pedal. And often overlooked.

                    As simple as it is, I keep going back to my Keely modded blues driver.

                      None. I haven't owned one in 40 years and it was a bosstone.

                          Agreed x 1000.

                              The distance from the highest line on your wrist to the tip of your middle finger is the exact length of what?
