Find a professional player who doesn’t have a distortion pedal on his pedalboard, I dare you! They are arguably the most popular guitar pedal sold in the market. We at N Stuff Music carry the best in distortion pedals whether they are the name brand models or some of the more boutique distortions. Distortion pedals are useful no matter what you rig is. For example, with a clean amp like a Fender Deluxe Reverb or Twin Reverb, a distortion pedal will give you a gain sound in addition to your clean sound and turn a typically clean amp into an overdriven beast. Thus, a distortion gives your amp and rig an entirely different dimension so that you can cover all musical bases. For players who are using an already gain-based amp like a Marshall or Friedman, a good distortion pedal can provide a totally different tonal character than your amp’s distortion. You could set the amp to be a basic crunch and then the distortion pedal could be set for screaming leads and that way you have each level of gain covered.

There are several factors to make sure that you consider when buying a distortion pedal. First of these is EQ and tone options. Some distortion pedals will have a couple of EQ knobs like treble, middle, or bass, or just treble and bass. A pedal with EQ is right for you if you want to be able to color the sound on top of how the amp’s tone. You can then further dial in the tone you want by using the pedal’s EQ. Some pedals will not have a conventional EQ and instead will just have a “tone” knob or something similar like a “shape” knob. A tone knob will function slightly differently than an EQ because it will simply adjust the character of the top of end of the sound.

One thing to note as well is to be sure to know the difference between distortion and fuzz. Distortion is going to be the more recognizable and typical gain sound with a more organic sound than fuzz and would keep more of the guitar’s natural character. Fuzz is exactly what it says, it adds a fuzz-based distortion character to your guitar’s sound which is certainly a cool effect, but does not sound like a typical gain sound. Fuzz will further alter the natural guitar sound in order to achieve that fuzz effect. However, both pedals have a tremendous number of necessary situations and serve two completely different purposes. It all comes down to what type of pedal you need for the music you make.

Distortion pedals come in all price ranges. Companies like Boss, Electro-Harmonix, and MXR all represent some of the best bang for your buck available in the pedal industry. Each of these companies have some of the most sought after distortion pedals but also carry a high level of durability and are made at an affordable price. Then we have companies like JHS, Friedman, Suhr, Fulltone, and Vertex that are made of some of the highest quality parts in the pedal market and also produce distortion in a way that replicates very well the sound of a cranked tube amp. These pedals also are boutique-like and carry a really interesting and unique place in the market.

At N Stuff Music we carry all varieties of distortion pedals. Whether it’s a versatile and affordable distortion pedal, or a boutique and high-features kind of pedal we will have a great selection for you here at N Stuff Music. Our sales staff are all gear heads and we can happily inform you on our variety of distortion pedals.
