    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.

    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.
