I have no amp at the moment and am stuck using my Line 6 PODXT (sounds pretty darn good with headphones by the way). I heard about Splawn and check the website out and ordered a Quick Rod about 3 weeks ago, so it should be done very soon. I chose to go with it because i was looking for a hot-rodded Marshall sound, but didnt want it to be to compressed and had to fit my budget. The Splawn will definently cover my straight rock tones extremely well, thats why i bought it. But i also recently have got more and more into real aggressive stuff, thrash metal and real heavy rock etc. and want to find a pedal that will take my amp to heavy metal heaven when im in the mood to get really nasty. Im not really looking for a Zakk Wylde type sound or else i would just get a SD-1 or something like that. Im looking for a aggressive, tight, punchy distortion with good dynamics and clarity, not a Boss Metal Zone type sound, or a mushy Recto sound, but more the type of crunch that John Petrucci gets when he plays real heavy or a modern George Lynch type sound (not his old dokken and lynch mob sounds, the amps already got that covered). Any suggestions guys?
Thanks and ill let you all know when i get the amp.... I cant wait!!!
