I have been on a search for the perfect distortion, and trust me I have used the search function more than I should have. The distortion I want is very gritty, doesn't get fuzzy (Rats tend to do this), crunchy, tubey, and has a good balance of high end, mids, and lows. I am looking for an ideal tone so if I need to pick up a blender, so be it. A cranked Marshall type of distortion pedal that remains defined and doesn't get fuzzy and sounds full on bass is a good description of what I want. When you vote, can you please give a reason, and if you vote other can you specify. Also, if you have personal experience with one of these pedals and they don't meet my criteria, include that in your post. Sorry for the long thread.
