my first distortion pedal was the ibanez pd7, i got it new off ebay for like $30. i figured at first that because it was so cheap there had to be better distortion pedals out there. so in January i buy the boss me-50b. i tried to get one from a local GC but everytime i go in there there's always some kids clowning around in there so it's a waste of time trying out equipment. so like an idiot i just buy the me-50b without trying it. i like the octaver, the synth, delay and chorus but the distortion sucks!! i've tweaked with EQ on this thing so much and i cannot find a good distortion for my Warwick at all. the pd7 just plain blows away the me-50b's distortion. my Rickenbacker sounds great with both pedals though. anyone else ever go through a situation like this? i can either sell the me-50b and use that money to help buy a new amp, or keep it and hope that it only sounds like crap because i'm using a Behringer BX1200.
