Orange Amps General Forum

I was looking for a good distortion/overdrive pedal for my new amp since the Orange doesn't have quite the gain I want when playing Thrash (Anthrax, some Metallica, Slayer).
I went to my guitar shop this weekend hoping to pick up 1/2 a dozen, try them out, and get one or 2. Turns out they didn't have that many but they did have the Digitech DF7, which has 7 classic distortion pedals into one:

1- IbanezÃ‚Â® TS-9*
2- DODÃ‚Â® Overdrive/Preamp 250
3- BossÃ‚Â® DS-1Ã¢â€žÂ¢*
4- Pro Co RatÃ¢â€žÂ¢*
5- Metal ZoneÃ‚Â®*
6- DigiTechÃ‚Â® Metal MasterÃ¢â€žÂ¢
7- Big MuffÃ‚Â®
I stuck my cheap condenser mic on front of my amp so it kinda sounds like a$$ but you'll get the picture of the different types of distortion that it can do.
I'm playing a riff from Among the Living by Anthrax. The first is with the pedal only then I do it again with my BOSS EQ pedal which gives it some boost. The last bit is with the Orange at full gain.

Of course each different pedal should be tweaked depending on what you'd need. I like the Boss Metal Zone (5) with EQ the best for the Thrash sound I'm looking for. But I also love the crunch of the Metal Master (6) and the fuzz of the Big Muff (7).
I'll be keeping it. At $95 I can't go wrong.
