    Yeah, another one of these threads...

    Friend of mine has recently caught GAS and is looking to get an OD, distortion and a fuzz pedal so he can start to experiment with tones. The trick is he's really stingy and doesn't want to spend much per pedal. Looking at getting everything second hand at this stage to keep costs down. Chances are anything he doesn't like will get resold onto me anyway. :)

    So far I've trawled the TB classifieds and given him some prices, just wanting some extra suggestions for him to check out on the UTOOBS before he buys anything.

    Mainly a rock/punk player, bit of metal and a bit of funk/slap. Not sure what sound he's after, but he did like the tones from the Boss SD-1 and DS-1 in Amplitube.

    Suggestions I've already thrown at him:
    Way Huge Swollen Pickle
    Way Huge Green Rhino
    EXH Big Muff
    Ibanez TS9/TS808
    Boss OD-3 and ODB-3
    Fulltone OCD / Joyo Ultimate Drive
    MXR Distortion +
    Crowther HotCake
    MXR MicroAmp
    ProCo RAT
    Marshall JH-1
    MXR El Grande / Bass Fuzz Deluxe / Blowtorch

    Any other suggestions?

    All he needs is a ZVEX Mastrotron fuzz.
