The Ibanez sounds okay through this set up but I think I want to buy another overdrive or distortion pedal to get a tighter and more singing lead tone. Any suggestions? I don't really have much time right now to go out and spend hours testing out pedals so I thought that I might ask for a few recommendations to help the process along. Thanks for the input.
It depends on what kind of music you play. Honestly Analog Man's Beano Boost is the only kind of boost pedal I would ever consider using. I don't really like overdrive pedals that color your guitar's sound too much. I like just running the amp very loud and distorted and using the guitars volume and tone knobs to go clean.
