I wonder what you guys use? Which pedals/amp to get your distortion effect.
I am using Metal Muff..
I use a Maxon Od808 as a clean boost in front of a 5150.
Jacques Fuse Blower
Ibanez TS7 as a clean boost for my Mesa.
EH Nano LPB-1, this thing is pure madness, and it's cheap too
Edit : I forgot to mention it's a boost so you need a tube amp with it
woww thats so cool!! keep em coming guys!! sadly i dont own a mesa.. can't afford them as for now..
Absolutely nothing in front of my Mark IV. Its preamp and power amp distortion all the way.
Logic Pro's Guitar Amp Pro and Native Instrument's Guitar Rig 2.
les paul straight into a JSX halfstack. no pedals needed.
Ibanez TS808 into a Pevaey 6505, that will, god willing, be replaced by a Dual Rectifier one day.
Maxon OD-9 as a clean boost for my A-down.
mesa boogie triaxis. All i need really...
Usually I just use the amp's distortion channel (a Crate...no-one say a word, as I like my amp). Occasionally I use a Metal-zone to supplement that.
I just my Zoom pedal for distortions and clean, just running dry into my Line6.
poor TC90 lol
My Powerball, by itself = best distortion I've found thus far. I am a HUGE fan of boosting though! So far the Powerball still sounds better without a boost but on all my other amps any variance of a TS808 has been the best boost for an already distorted channel. The best distortion I've ever heard from a pedal is a modded Metal Zone. I had a Keeley one for a while and I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the pedal through the clean channel of my amp and the Modern channel on my Racktifier. That very pedal is what inspired me to start modding them myself.
At present, my primary gain is from a Pod XT Live. As backup, I have a Line 6 Uber Metal pedal and (on it's way) is a Crate Shockwave head. So once it gets here we'll have to see just how usable (in case of XTL breakdown) the gain channels on it are.
Zoom Power Drive boosting a Laney GH50L.
Warhead, its all I need
