i waws going with the valve special because of the EQ and Gain control
thought that would be a better option for my needs especially if i want to play at night with a bit more gain.

Hey, TS, maybe you could make a list of all ODs and Boosts out there? Even if there aren't any reviews for them yet, it would still be cool to know what you can choose from if you're buying an OD/boost.

Finally - a better OD/Dist thread.

Well done!

Perhaps there should be threads like this one for other effects too? At least for weird stuff since people often ask about weird-sounding effects.

I heartily agree, I'm about to go out, but I'll get onto it.

I perhaps could try to do such a list and pm it to you for editing.
I'm also worried that there are sooo many distortion pedals out there'll be too many reviews.

EHX LPB-1 Review

Great little od and very cheap and sturdy as hell. Its pretty much two pedals in one, but with one convenient knob. When going from 1-4.5 on the knob your going to get a pretty big clean boost and going from 4.5-10 gradually increases gain and fullness. That said its not a clean boost pedal you can dime and go on about your way because it will color your sound. So take it slow and you will be just fine. Adds in a hell of alot of clarity to your tone as well if you keep it in that 1-4.5 mark. Right now im using it as a clean boost to tighten and add a hair more fatness for metal purposes.

Pros- Sturdy, Cheap, Small Foot Print, Sounds great
Cons- A bit noisy when cranked.


Ill add in some more reviews when I get some more time. God knows I have tested/owned my far share of boost pedals lol

But I suggest you make the "OD" and "Boost" lines bold, so that it will be easier to see where the ODs end and the boosters begin.

Your list is missing the Marshall Guv'nor and Jackhammer.

Good cheap pedals - are very usable. If you're on a budget, these things are great.

If you have an infinite budget, do you need an OD if you have an expensive custom made hi-gain amp?

Hmmm, well a lot of guitarists have ultra high gain amps and still use it to tighten up the sound. And aye, I'll edit the Marshall pedals in a mo, I retired my Jackhammer but its a cracking pedal for the price.

I made a list of ODs and boosts, and I thought that these Marshall are more on the distortion side, but it's quite possible I was wrong.
I'm amazed at the Maxon range...

They are meant to be ODs (Jackhammer has an OD and Dist mode - dist mode is useless).
The pedals have more dynamics then you'd expect. I use them into my clean channel - not a bad sound, quite nice if I get my new speaker + tubes.

Oh mini, I made a bit of a typo in my review. I said "the voicing knob all the way to the left makes the amp voiced like a TS808", Instead of "amp", I meant "pedal".
Also, if you could just add the 7 to my name in my review, that would be nice.

I noticed a couple of doubles in the list that you might want to take out to help conserve space. They're the Carl Martin AC-Tone and the Keeley Time Machine.
