Hey, I am looking for a OD/Distortion pedal. I play mostly Blues Rock. My gear is a Gibby LP and a Fender Vibrolux Reverb. I have been considering a Fulltone OCD (kind of expensive) Marshall Bluesbreaker BB2. I would go to a store and try one of them out, but there is only 1 music store around and they don't carry pedals. Not really much of a guitar shop.

Thanks for the reply. I would love to get an OCD, I have kind of been leaning towards the OCD, but am curious about the BB2. I am a huge fan of EC's tone on the Beano album and Early Cream stuff. Just curious as to which one can get closer to that tone, but I don't want to spend 70 bucks on a crap pedal.

Look also in MI-Audio. Just played through a Blues Boy Deluxe this past week after this video really pulled me in....

The tonal capabilities are pretty awesome, especially the mid tone control. I liked it better than the Fulltone OCD. Slightly more sustain, more mids.

The ZVex Box of Rock does the early Cream thing quite well. The Vexter version is about $200 new, wouldn't be too hard to find one for around $150 used which around the price of the OCD new. The BoR is closer to that tone than the OCD in my opinion.

A really great pedal with lots of textures is the BBE Free Fuzz, it can have just a small amount or tons of fuzz, a really great pedal, or the electro harmonix big muff is a good one, it depends on what kind of tone you are looking for though, the BBE Crusher is a very nice pedal but maybe too much gain for what you need, Eric Clapton crossroads pedal is another goodie
