I have a Danelectro FAB distortion pedal. It's a cheapy 40 dollar pedal, but I really like the distortion I can get from it.

Oh, and Speaking of Epi Dots, how do they sound? I held one to get a feel for it at a music store (cuz feel is way more important than sound for me), and I liked it.

Yeh, I really love the sound not too heavy but not too clean, probably the next one I'll get.

i'm not really sure i follow here.

if your guitar has a really clean tone naturally the effect of the pedal should have been even more distinguishable.

you have a couple of song examples with the tone you're looking for?

When I bought the pedal I thought I would get that tone that Kurt Cobain had.

To get a Kurt Cobain-ish sound I'd recommend Electro-Harmonix BigMuff for the fuzzy but not loud parts, Electro-Harmonix Polychorus to get that nice phat chorussy reverb effect he had, DS1 with lots of gain but not too much morph for that distorted tone. He probably had some form of volume limiter for the songs where the volume increase is more subtle.

How much that cost at a guitar center? Hopefully the same as my DS-1? And what if I wanted the sound of Jonny Greenwood's guitar on tracks such as 'Just'? Because that's what I really want.

About 80 on the BigMuff, about 230 on the Polychorus, and 45-50ish on a DS1. So about 350-ish in pedals, and maybe an extra 30-40 for the volume pedal.

I'm not sure about Greenwood, I haven't played around with pedals enough to come across anything remotely close to emulating his sound. Though if I had to take a guess I think he'd use a lot of pedals as there's typically a lot going on sound wise.

i remember reading an article that johnny greenwood actually made a few of his pedals himself. might be kind of tough to properly emulate his tone.
