The micro POG by electro harmonix is a great pedal for a pedal board that adds a little kick in the clean and a twist in the distorted tones. The micro POG is small enough to fit into any pedal board, yet it has a lot of the quality tones that come from the original POG pedal; but that’s a lot bigger and more expensive.
Every so often a company makes a product that rips your face off. Here comes the little lunchbox amp from Mesa called the Transatlantic. It's small but realistically...you won't need another amp unless you are an amp conneissuer.
All my life I've searched for the best possible distortion on the planet. When I play metal I'm always searching for more gain. When I'm soloing I need the sustain coming from the distortion channel. I love distortion. It's something close to my heart. I'm not even sure why, I just know it's a high priority in my sound.

With so many possibilities it gets a bit out of control.
