i tried out a hardwire OD last week, aswell as a green screamer...the hardwire destroyed the green screamer..i plan on buying it as a boost for my tsl60 gain channel...before i buy though, is there any other pedal that has the warmth and clarity/ smoothness of the hardwire that i should look into?any ideas?

I have the hardwire OD. The only thing I'd use other than that is the bad monkey. It's pretty much a bad monkey with true bypass on the modified setting. And then you have the vintage setting on there for blues and boosting a clean channel. Best od pedal imo. It sounds awesome. I'd use nothing else.

I say go for it as well.

Try it next to a TS9, i think youll find the CM-2 to be better, and then try it next to a DX ts9.

Thats a bout it i did the same thing and still walked away with the CM-2.

It really is like two pedals in one with the switch thinga majiger.

on the the CM-2 it feels like you got TS9 in the bag with the level on 11 o clock and below, anything after that is overkill. In a good way by the way.

Fulltone OCD for amazing overdrive that cleans up amazingly well with your guitar's volume knob. The "High Peak" and "Low Peak" switch gives you many options for your drive.

if you could raise your budget up to around $130ish, i'm sure you could find a used Fulltone OD. i love my Fulltone Fulldrive II as well.

but i'm realllly eager to try the CM-2!

^ lol

sorry but IMO, there's some boutiques out there that just take the cake...but what could you expect when you're paying out the ass. but if you're talking standard mass produced ODs, then yea...THE original tubescreamer is prolly the best.

The original tube screamer isn't the best at all imo. Other companies have taken it and made it better. I'd pick the hardwire od over the ocd. I love the thing.

^well good for you then.

And good for me cause i did the same thing.

^^and i know its all opinion but its hard to say that with the CM-2 next to a TS9.

The Cm-2 just kicks the TS9 in the nads.
