Are DP's worth it?

    I've been playing without a distortion pedal. I have the money but I'm not sure that getting a distortion pedal would be worth the $70

    Depends on the pedal, the style of music, the bass, the amp, and the band you play with. Doesn't work with jazz, works in metal sometimes.

    What it's worth is completely subjective. Many members on this forum have been known to spend in EXCESS of $200 for a good distortion and have multiple on their board.
