    Whats the best thing to get distortion for not to much money?
  2. I've got a Boss MetalZone. Its quite versatile because of all the tone shaping possibillities. I like it, but I have tried to replace it. Just didn't find anything that was so much better that I wanted to spend the cash on it. The ones I liked was, the ProCO RAT, Boss overdrive and a thing called CompTortion. It has a compressor and a distortion. It can produce raw distortion but allso tube-like overdrive. Very nice, but expensive.

    Happy hunting

    hey i think one of the best effects is a boss ds-1 distortion there really cheap and if ur like me i play both guitar and bass u got a great effect for both my suggestion stay away from anything DOD there descently made but chew up batteries like nothing i have used a the boss overdrive and u don't have much of a viaritey on it witht he ds-1 u can go from a screaming fuzz like hyper sound to a mellow overdriven sound go with something boss there one of the best effects makers out there they hold up and they sound great
