can you use an overdrive pedla (such as an ibanez tubescreamer or a digitech bad monkey) as a clean boost? by like turning the gain right down and level right up?

i need an od pedal for a gig soon and it wld sound really nice with my new fender champion XD

i have enough money for the bad monkey but is it worth nearly double the amount for the ts-9 or even more for a ts-808?

would i be find with a bad monkey for a bit?

thanks guys XD
The Bad Monkey is a pretty good OD, there are obviously better ones out there but the BM is the best for the price.

Yes, it functions as a clean boost, but be aware that it'll give your tone a little bit of grit no matter what.
