  • Best effect unit with no clout?

    What is your favorite distortion pedal that has no clout, no mojo, and no cult following? I for one really like the DN-2 Dynadrive. It's like a more even sounding DS-1 that expands your dynamic range on terms of controlling how much distortion you get, but it also conpresses your signal volumewise. So you can clean up your signal with the volume on your guitar without disappearing behind the other instruments. I think people didn't like them because they were digital.
    You will never understand How it feels to live your life With no meaning or control And with nowhere left to go You are amazed that they exist And they burn so bright
    Whilst you can only wonder why

    I think once people share theirs, they will begin to develop clout. Like the XP300 space station nobody wanted that’s triple the price now.

      Distortion pedal? MXR Distortion III. Works on bass, especially good in a parallel setup; nice crunch for guitar into a cleanish tube amp, works as an OD for leads too. I haven't used my pedals much since I got the HX Effects but it was a mainstay on my bass board for years.

        Speaking of Digitech, I have a Pds1550 "Programmable" Distortion that's pretty great. It's a highly tweakable dual distortion that has a near 1:1 HM-2 clone and a very very usable Tube Screamer

          Also I forgot to mention the PDS1550 has 7 internal switches that act as a EQ on the HM-2 side as well as adding a short delay to make it sound fatter.

            I have a plastic little Danelectro Surf & Turf Compressor that works amazingly well.

              I have a Space Station in my Digitech EX7 it is cool but it doesn't give me anything I can't get better with the H9/90.

              To answer the OP's question of course it is my Decibel 11 Dirt Clod. A very underrated and unrecognized pedal. If the right guitarist was seen stepping on one they would go for 4x the money

                I have a Behringer Metalzone clone
                and it is a Metalzone clone

                No one follows it at all
                But it works just like a Metalzone

                    DOD rubberneck delay, I think it's the most underrated analog delay around, it's a bit noisey but it has modulation, gain control and even tap tempo, it's warm, it's musical, every time I play with it I smile or drown in to echoes with joy, still nobody uses it but me

                      This might have a following: Arion Tubulator. Nice little pedal that was available new, for a short time, at $10.

                        Mine would be the Boss MZ-2 Digital Metalizer. It was my second distortion pedal and was a massive improvement over the DOD FX56 American Metal I had before it. I sold it almost 30 years ago. Thinking back on it, it was a damn good pedal.

                          The Digitech RP-12, RP-1, RP-21, 2112 SGS ,Boss GT 5, GT 8, GT 10, any of the ADA pre amps, many of the ART Rack units, Arion Hot Watt 2, Rockmans, Yamaha SPX 90 Behringer AM100 Acoustic Modeler.

                          I remember when back in the 1970's, gears snobs frowned on EHX pedals.

                            I love those old RP modelers

                            I have the GNX 3000

                            It is awesome

                            Rarely use it anymore
