i want a cheap distortion to finish off my pedal board, any surjestions??
define cheap. What kind of sound are you going for. Also, alot of dist/fuzz/overdrive pedals sond good or atleast ok until you start playing lower notes fast. So if that is something you do then that will narrow your selection alot. But regardless of what anyone says do not I repeat DO NOT buy anything until you play through it. Preferably with your own gear. Good luck and always remember that you get what you pay for.
You can find Sovtek Big Muff's used for around $50-$60. Not bad for a solid pedal.
cheers for the surjestions guys.
is this any good ive herd its a copy of the original muff.
MXR has a distortion pedal that looks/sounds pretty cheap. I stole my guitarists and if its loud enough sounds rude.
Try DOD stuff.
Ibanez Phat-Hed. A bit noisey, but a great deal for the money. Sixty bucks or so new.
I thought the digitech x series pedal was pretty good value for the money, seemed to have some ok sounds in it.
Does distortion work for bass?
I would go for overdrive, like Boss ODB-3.
To me the Boss unit is more like a distortion.
I love my American Woman. I know, it's left field. Try it though. Tone at noon, Gate at 9:00 and Drive at 1:00.
Another vote for the Ibanez PD-7. Good sounds, versatile, cheap (music123 sells them for $50 i think). Can be slightly noisy when turned up really you cant go wrong for the price.
I'd recommend that you dont go cheap on the distortion/overdrive pedal. It will sound like crap and muddy if you do....I have a boss odb-3 and it just has no low end or balls in a band situation. It's no longer in my pdeal board nor is the marshall gov'nor, once I got the Fulltone Bass Drive. It's a boutique pedal yes but I do it again for a way better bass overdrive than what all the other mass produced pedals provide....Save your money and get something a little bit more higher end you wont regret it. Try out the tech 21 sansamp driver, MXR bass DI 80 etc if you can at least.
ya get what ya pay for
i think im gonna try the ibanez bass distortion
+ 1,000,000,000,000 etc.
Yeah, unless you get screwed on Ebay or something
i tried the Ibanez PD7 today, i liked it, its kept bass and was quite gritty, i just want to know wat the Guyatone HD-2 Sounds like, does it keep the bass and sound more gritty?
+1 for the Ibanez PD-7. While you get what you pay for in terms of quality, I really don't like most of the od/distortion pedals I've tried on bass. In fact, until I tried the PD-7, I was convinced I didn't like distortion on bass at all.
Behringer or Arion. Both are around $20.00
