Ive tried. the crunchbox.

the bass was too flabby, not tight enough.

Blackstone

its great! but its a tad too sharp and trebly.

Is there anything i can try out?

My low gain drive is a lovepedal eternity.

so i was thinking about

this, the clip sounds really good.

I need the marshall or mesa tone for heavy rhythm and palm muting and maybe lead work too.


Should i jump for the lovepedal PP or try something else?

Cheers
James

Tube Zone or the Reezafratzitz

...maybe the MRD or BOM, but I haven't tried those.

(or wait around for Menatone's None Blacker)

Gets Mesa Rec tones quite nicely.
I run it into an MXR 6-band set for a slight bass punch, and it's pretty tight & super high-gain.

Lovepedal 800 is similar to the Crunchbox with more punch and less compression.

The clips i heard had prettaye tight bass. heh.

Ill be using this for bands like creed, alter bridge, paramore, relientk, planetshakers, delirious.

For more harder rock and punk-ish stuff.

Sounds like you'll need 2 pedals, one for the mesa-like crunch, and the other, marshall.

You can get pretty good nickelback/creed mesa-like tones with the tubezone, but you'll need a humbucker-equipped guitar, preferably non-traditional strat type i.e. get a Gibby/PRS/Hamer etc and not a HSS Fender.

The DRD or the mighty red as Joses mentioned for the marshall. Barber DD does a great job too, but it's just a lil too smooth and liquid for me.

MI Tube Zone all the way just got mine and it does just what you want the marshall to mesa modern rock tone down to a tee
none of the harshness, hiss or ice pickieness of your boss or other high gain cheap pedals
loads of control and the ability to work with the pickiest amp
will get you where you want

My daughter plays a lot of Relient K, Switchfoot, Kutlass, and stuff like that...

She gets really great hi gain tones out of the red channel of a Jekyll&Hyde through a Fender Pro Junior.

The pedal that you need (IMO) is the Toneczar Openhaus. It can do *EVERYTHING* you just described in spades, and then some. It's a very versatile distortion/overdrive pedal that can go from low gain sounds to the highest gain sounds you've ever heard. I'm pretty convinced it can get higher gain than a Diezel VH4 I once had for a bit. The bass can be VERY tight on this. Ed made them so that you could get your sound w/ any amp, and without regards to were in the chain you placed it. He made it so that you can get your sound anywhere, anytime, any place. The most versatile Distortion box I've ever played/owned. All that said, there *is* a wait on them (not sure what it's currently at), and they're not the cheapest thing out there.
