    I have been playing for almost a year and I have never used distortion. Do I need a distortion pedal? I mean I am going to get one but is there any thing I can do with out a pedal. Any good sites with distortion settings just for an amp.

    Only YOU can answer that question.........

    What kind of music do you play?;
    do you think adding some dist could help/benefit your style?;
    When you listen to Tim.com from Rage Against the machine or Flea, or Billy Sheegan you say: "God, that´s the sound i´m looking for!!!!!" ????

    You dont Neeed distortion, but if you want a dirtier, grungier sound, its one of the easiest ways to go. Now you must think, do I want mild distortion or all out roar, and do I want my low end preserved to do I want a crunchy sound.
     
  4. I'm guessing this is like maybe the 1,000th thread on distortion? ::sigh::
