youre about as vague about what you want as my girlfriend when i ask her "what are you in the mood to eat?"  :D  ;)


well, cruise around generalguitargadgets.com, tonepad.com, fuzzcentral.com and try these:

 Look under the couch... Maybe you left it there.

 Seroiusly, it sounds like you want something like the OmniDrive.
I am not responsible for your imagination.

Something like this? -> "Gain 9.00 > gtr vol 5 then 10" then "Gain 12.00 > gtr vol 5 then 10" then "Gain 5.00 > gtr vol 5 then 10"
JFet Vulcan
Is that something like what you want?

pyrop ;D

I want something that will help me in the kitchen.  You know, something that will make toast, filter coffee, fry eggs, and wash dishes.  One of "those".

In some respects, one distortion is simply another one with some changes.  At another level, the different sounds you seek can involve different processes that require about as much as a second pedal would require.  Just make yourself a couple of different ones in one box (they usually don't take up much room) and switch between them.

Try Tim Escobedo's "Tripple Fuzz". Remember that your guitar has a volume control, too.

OmniDrive is very flexible and versatile gadget.
In opposite, Tim's Tripple Fuzz is a kind of very special thing IMO.
