Cheap distortion pedals

Discussion in 'Ask Justin Meldal-Johnsen' started by Tourdeforce1, Nov 21, 2012.


  1. I had a bunch of pedals stolen a while back and I wanna start getting some new ones to replace what I lost. You have any cheaper distortions you really dig. Would love to get a wooly mammoth and a bass bully but I'm trying to be realistic in the current. Also any pedal repair guys you really dig in L.A. because I still have one of those old giant graphic fuzz pedals that needs repairing.

    The EH Bass Big Muff Pi is a pretty decent fuzz pedal at around $85 (if I remember correctly.) It is probably less versatile than the Wooly (I guess? I don't have a Wooly since the price is a little scary for me too) but it sounds good at what it does. And you simply can't go wrong with the forum favorite Sanamp VT for like less than $200.
     
  6. I still have a sans amp and am a little over muffs. I saw a dude with two rats back to back a while ago and it sounded pretty cool.

    +1 on the SansAmp VT. Got it after it was recommended here and never leaves my signal chain.

    If you don't mind clones, they're less expensive alternatives to those you named.

    Link to Bass Bully and Wooly Mammoth "clones" you speak of?
     
  10. I'm also curious about those clones
