Members dach123 Posted April 16, 2006 Members Share Posted April 16, 2006 I need some help getting through the maze. I play a Strat through a Deluxe Reverb. My band plays a lot of classic rock and country. Most of the time I play clean. We mic the amps, so I have my amp volume set around 3, which is nice and clean. I'm looking for something versatile, to get from Santana to ZZ Top. I'm not looking for overdrive, but a pedal that creates the distortion itself. I have tried all the BOSS pedals, since my local store has them all set up. I borrowed a MZ2 for a while - this is too distorted for me. So I think anything "metal" is not what I want. I think pretty much the BOSS pedals are variations on this same type of distortion. So let's say, no BOSS. Also, they are really noisy with the gain turned up. So "low noise" is important. I found the Tonebone website and listened to samples of their 2 distortion pedals. They sounded good, for what it's worth. I have a tube screamer, which I like. I think what it does is drive the amp, so I don't think it really adds distortion on its own. Correct me if I'm wrong Any suggestions? If I'm way off on some assumptions, just tell me Thanks in advance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
