    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    So I made that pedal... actually I made an angry charlie (same pedal +1 cap)... It's a great distortion! And it does have that quality at times. I'm going to try changing and testing different points of the pedal to see if I can increase that effect (the effect that I still don't know how to...

    You should check out this video I stumbled upon. It's about the Boss Tone and Jordan Electronics. Pretty fascinating!

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    We had a good conversation on here, and several of you seem to know what I'm talking about. But I still don't know how to describe that quality... is there a word for what I'm hearing?

    Everybody needs a DS-1 pedal

    The most recent incarnations are surface mount. Good luck modifying that.

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    It is choppy like I mention. But also fizzy. This thread has some great adjectives. Lol

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Cool pedal, but, again... I just want a normal distortion pedal that is very grainy. Not fuzz, not modulation. Very cool pedal though. Thanks.

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Well, that is just an example of the choppy clipping. I don't want the fuzz that comes with it when using a fuzzrite. I want a hard distortion that also had that effect. Hence this thread. But I think @Lowerleftcoast is onto something. I'm making a crunchbox type pedal so I can try various...

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Listen to the ventures song that @monkeybanana posted on page 2 of this thread. That's what I'm taking about, for the most part.

    That's cool. Never actually seen that.

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Well, I've built several fuzz pedals... I know that is very addicting. But I haven't built a distortion pedal yet. I have experimented by changing diodes and whatnot on a ds1 though. Thank you.

    What two colors do you see in this dress?

    I hear laurel, but my wife hears Yancy. Oh, wait...

    What two colors do you see in this dress?

    Blue and black. But sometimes I can make it white and gold. Not today though. Lol

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Very cool. Thanks. Yes, 80's distortion... that's why I mention DS1 and Rat... they both do it some. The Crunchbox does it more. I just want to narrow it down to the particular quality and be able adjust the amount of it. Make sense?

    To me, it's the opposite of creamy. Crunchy peanut butter vs creamy peanut butter.

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    I feel like I'm having two conversations here. One where people are still trying to understand what the heck I'm talking about... and another with the guys that understand. For the guys that understand, how would you describe that quality? For the other guys, go watch Tommy Boy. It's...

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Well done, sir. That's very close to what I'm wanting. Sounds like it retains that choppiness through the dial from overdrive to fuzz. I like.

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Yeah, exactly. It's a quote from the movie Tommy Boy. I'm guessing you are considerably older than me.

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Again, I wasn't talking about Darth vader's voice. I was making a joke referring to Chris Farley in Tommy Boy ... where he quoted that line into a fan. Lol

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Yeah, it does. Pretty close. Thank you.

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Yeah, you're right. I did. I'm trying to learn how to describe what I'm hearing. Sorry for any confusion.

    How to describe the distortion in looking for...

    Yes, butt without the fuzz. Just a normal distortion but segmented.
