    I used to have a distortion pedal with a stereo out but I have no idea what happened to it!

    It felt neglected & left?

    But seriously options like that are good to have on at least one pedal

    Absolutely- if you like to tinker with the sound I can imagine it is very fun (and useful).

    As you can see I am not much of a tinkerer

    I have fun with effects
    I find horrible sounds & learn what avoid
    I find fun sounds I like but am not likely to use
    & sounds that cool & will get used

    I love Distortion back when I was playing all rock and alternative. But ever since I went blues, I went with OD's instead. I still like the occassional Distortion on some songs that I need to rock out or use it as a boost for soloing.

    Sometimes I do use a distortion pedal like an OD
    There's enough of an overlap for me
    & it depends on the pedal
    The Empress Fistortion can handle it

    I love my Fisortion pedals--that might not be a bad name for one--And have a picture of a fist on it...
