I got the distortion oriented Alesis device - the Bitrman.. Cheap. Light.
And a perfect in-studio little distortion box with a wide wide range of
sounds for $40. Imagine getting some of the sounds Jeff Beck made on Wired
and There and Back and that boggled the minds of every guitar player I knew
for just $40.
