Marshall Drivemaster.

http://www.blamepro.com/mardrive.htm

I have one, it's awesome. Good crunch, can produce lots of gain, built like a tank but fairly rare to get hold of.

They go for upwards of £60 on eBay, I got mine for £15, Steal.
Don't take me too seriously.

I have a modded DS1 that I made that comes pretty close. With the right Eq (before and after) settings it is wicked. I basically went off of the Keeley ultra/ase mod then added a couple of upgrades to some caps, added a diode and boom. I use it to take the gain in my orange (not a ton) to the next level. You might look into that?

i use a marshall jackhammer as my "marshall tone in a pedal", however i use it as a boost in front of a "gritty clean" set laney VC30. into a clean amp it may not work too well - it is a kinda fizzy sounding pedal on its own.

The Drive Master is my favorite of all the original Marshall pedals. Really wish I didn't get rid of that pedal a few years ago. Really smooth sounding but still delivers that Marshall crunch.
