We encourage users to profile distortion pedals along with their amps and decide by the result, as as good number of pedals work perfect.
However, if the guitar world has moved that far to the forgiving side since then, we could easily publish distortion pedal profiling on said quality level and yield. Still this would not be consistent with my business ethics.
Maybe something that could be added in a Beta so people might try various pedals and report on quality?
Would be cool to see how close they might be.
