Sorry for the late reply, I've been extremely busy with work and the house. What I was looking for was an effects pedal that would give me the distortion I wanted without coloring my tone. What I have now is a 70's MXR Distortion +, a Boss MT-2, a Mad Professor Golden Cello and the TC Electronic MojoMojo. All of these color the tone to some degree the best two are the Golden Cello and the MojoMojo. But that being said they each work differently with a Strat and a Les Paul. The Golden Cello sounds the best when I use my Strat. The MojoMojo sounds the best with my Les Paul.

I too know the host pretty well but the amps are never the same unless one of the guest performers bring one that I've used before. I'll use a deluxe reverb as is and it sounds very good. The same with Victoria. Ah, the quest for "that perfect sound" goes on.

I should also add that since the owner of the amp has it set the the way they like it, I'm not going to readjust those settings. I'll use the clean setting and color the tone to taste.

What would you have suggested?

The main reason for me buying a distortion pedal is because I'll be playing out of a different amp at the jam sessions. I never know what to expect. I'll play a super clean one week and and a nice distortion the next week. I've played through a Victoria, Vox, Bassman, and many others. I needed something that would distort at indoor volume on any amp and be consistent without damaging the equipment.

I tried all those mentioned, they seemed to be out of stock on quite a few. Then I told the manager that I was not looking to spend more than $150.00. I was also thinking about Hughes & Kettner tube distortion but they didn't have that either.

Jammed with Billy King, Lisa Mathews, Mark Baier and a harp player that I didn't know. John Falstrum on bass and Dan Wile on drums.

Saw a pic on FB last night.   How was that 7 year old drummer?

That little dude was pretty good. It's always a good time.

steve, you were looking for a good distortion pedal, but you didn't actually try one out, and ended up not buying one?

I tried several. I paid $130 for it which fit into my budget nicely.

TC Electronic MojoMojo Overdrive

Yep, that's the one(thank's Ken). Does everything they say. I am very pleased with it.

Just picked up a tc electronics mojomojo today. I was looking for a good distortion pedal that didn't overly color my twin amp sound. Mainly because I liked the tone of the amp and I couldn't get the depth I was wanting, everything I tried sounded either too nasally or muddied up the tone. I tried the Keeley Katana and wasn't sold on it. I tried MXR Custom modified badass  overdrive, T-Rex crunchy frog, Way Huge Electronics Green Rhino and a fulltone blue and red. There wasn't a big selection and my criteria was budget, ease of use and tone quality. After playing for a while on the various pedals, I settled on the TC Electronics MojoMojo. 4-knobs bass, treble, drive and level. There's also a mini toggle for voice. It didn't take long to dial it in for deep rich distortion and the voicing toggle switch in the down position smoothed out the crunch so that playing chords sounded great. If you get a chance check one out and draw your own conclusions, and it is a true bypass pedal also.
