First make a nice clean sound out off the guitar-amplifier set then make it 'higher' with a booster pedal and then distort it.The best distortion is single without a booster.

Can you please explain this? What you mean single?

I mean without it's other half. A booster pedal is a pre-amp that helps the sound to 'jump out' of the speaker.Expecially an old instrument with ceramic, passive magnets has a warm sound because of it's dry wood but a low signal too.There is no mean to distort a sound if we do not make it 'alive' and bright.A distorsion by it self does only the half job.The booster must be placed after the instruments circuit and boost the original signal.There are a lot off distorsion pedals including pre-amp circuits but this breaks the balance between the distorted and other sounds (clean,delay,chorus e.t.c.).So it is better to have a booster for all.
