I have a need for a distortion pedal (hard rock-ish) that sounds good DI'd. BOSS DS-1 does NOT cut it. Needs to be foot switchable .
I am playing in a musical and there isnt a whole lot of room on the floor with the other chairs so it need to be fairly small.
You'd probably be better off looking at a modeller. An older pod or similar won't cost much and should do an all right job with a lot more options than a stompbox.
