Well, I'm looking for an OD pedal as I'm going to be getting a new tube amp soon (dunno which yet, possibly a Valveking as I tried out both the VK and B-52 and I personally like the cleans, reverb, and just classic rock tone more on the VK). However, seeing as the VK is known more as a versatile amp than a metal amp (versatility is my thing ^.^), I'm looking for a reasonably priced OD with a lot of bang for the buck. I've been looking into both the Digitech Bad Monkey and the MXR Wylde Overdrive.

tl;dr I wanna get a good OD pedal that can easily push an amp into metal.

Can someone explain to me what is this sub genre of fag metal? I have never heard it before.

I would reccomend the Ibanez TS-9 Tubescreamer they are very good, aswell as the Maxon-808 which is more pricy but better.

Bad monkey is the go to pedal for the valveking.. Great pedal and cheap cant go wrong....

I would put it up against any other pedal double or triple its price when it comes to tightening and metal..

ive got the bad monkey, and personally i think its a bit noisy, but i think that might just be mine because i used the wrong adapter with it for the first week i had it and i think i fried something in it. sounds great though, i just have to roll the volume down on my guitar a little and the noise goes away

So the general consensus is that a Bad Monkey OD is the way to go?

My vote is he fried something...


i figured as much. i dont get any noise when i use it with my clean channel. but i know its not a problem with my lead channel cause i only get a lot of noise when i turn on the OD
