I play brutal technical death metal and slam death metal. I'm looking for something to get a bit of a thicker chunk out of my Peavey 5150 2x12 combo even at bedroom volumes (which is mostly what i play at). I still need fast alternate picking and tremolo picking passages to sound clean though.
I was going to get the TS7 tube screamer, but it's been discontinued. How's the Digitech Bad Monkey? Other options? I'm just not really wanting to spend the $100 on the TS9, since i don't know how much of a difference it's gonna make. I'm gonna be looking for used TS7's and TS9's though.
