High Gain Distortion Pedal Advice Needed!
I am looking for a relatively small high gain distortion pedal.
Gear I'm using:
-Mesa Maverick combo
-Mesa DC-5 combo
-540R w/JS1000 neck
-American Deluxe Strat w/Mark Knopfler pickups
-Fulltone Clyde Deluxe Wah
-Planet Waves Tuner pedal
-Xotic AC Booster
-TC Corona Chorus pedal
-TC Flashback Delay pedal
-Boss GE-7 EQ pedal w/Sniper mods
-Rocktron Patchmate Floor
My band plays all original music ranging in styles from Lounge/Jazz to Frank Zappa to Rush to Incubus, etc.
Fusion Bass/Keyboard Player
80's style Drummer (Rush, Police, U2, etc.)
Classic Rock & 80's style Singer (Heart, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, etc.)
and me, Recovering Metalhead/Hardcore Punk Guitar player (Black Sabbath, DRI, Agnostic Front, early Anthrax, early Maiden, etc.)
I am looking for:
Lots of crunch
Lots of sustain
Not overly trebly, but with great harmonics
Lots of bass, but not muddy
Must have a small footprint to save pedal board space!
Must respond to subtle nuances
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I live on a small (but beautiful) island and have no where to try any decent gear.
