    hello all!

    i'm looking to try to get a saw-type distortion. i've attached an mp3 of the exact type that i'm thinking about. if anyone can help, it would be appreciated. i have tried the boss bass overdrive (couldn't even get close with that. wrong type of pedal i guess), big muff pi (closer, but not quite. sounds great tho), and a DoD super american metal (best yet, but not THAT sound)

    i've wanted to cop this sort of sound for years... but i have lacked the funds to try out a lot of pedals.

    Umm.. I am a distortion nut, and I think the unit for you is an guitar tube overdrive pedal, or rack mount... Or an older fuzz pedal, like a shin ei or a miestro... Or a dredge tone bass anglerI dig that tone, very godflesh'y...

    cheers

    I can't seem to download any clips, but based on your description I would check out the ZVex Machine. Major nasty fuzz type sound, very saw like.
