Hi folks,
I'm a newcomer to an electric guitar. I was playing acoustic guitar for 3 years but never tried myself playing an electric guitar. Yesterday I turned 24 and my friends gifted me Yamaha Revstar RS320 :twisted: :lol: :D
So I want to buy a distortion pedal. Which one do you recommend? I have $200 for this aim, don't look for an expensive one for training

fender62,
Have you heard of Maxon OD808X? What do you think about it? I found some feedbacks, reviews and it looks like people are satisfied with it. Also, my friend had one sometimes ago.

i would go and test them both out, there are youtube testing side by side against other distortion pedals, it's subjective though, you have to go and try
it out and other distortion pedals, id test them live and with headphones, listen out for mids between pedals.
