My next disto?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by zachoff, Dec 30, 2012.

  1. These are what I've tried:
    DS-1, ODB-3, Big Muff, Bass Big Muff, Blowtorch, BDDI, ProCo Rat, Supercollider, MXR Disto+, Black Forest, and Pharoah... I'm either getting too fizzy or too muddy. I'm currently using a modded Vox V8-30 that I like more than what I've tried above but I still don't think it's the one.

    I want something first and foremost with good definition... If I play a fast run I don't want it all to run together in muddy spunk. I also want something with huge cojones. Something that will make people smile when I hit a wide open C. Is there anything out there that will do both?

    I was slightly skeptical on how much distortion you can coax out of a B3K but holy geez what an awesome noise. I'm a huge fan of the Meatsmoke sound and this gets me comfortably close to that with my GK MB800 on high gain. Not bad at all for solid state!

    I just had the same thought. I'm interested, as well. I want clean dirt. Just like you, OP, I want more clarity in my distortion. I have to run a TS9 in front of my BM Pi just to cut through the mud.

    You might want to consider the FEA Labs Dual Band Distortion:


    It has two bands of distortion that can be dealt with via the variable crossover as well as a clean blend... offers a lot of flexibility in getting grind with clarity.

    Unfortunately, the Dual Band Distortion has been discontinued but you might find someone looking to sell theirs.
