So, My birthday's in a months time.

I'll probably have a bit of spare cash, so I'm thinking i should get a better Boost for my Jcm800. ATM I have an 80's black label SD-1 as my main boost, I'm just not digging the sound. It's pretty noisy and probably needs a service.

I'm sort of looking for an Avenged Sevenfold sort of sound. maybe a little more gain.

So, given my setup, what would you use as your boost?

Thank you in advance.

You could an eq, run it in front and put the volume slider all the way up to boost a little and also add more treble,bass etc. Or you can buy a bad monkey for a cheap overdrive. I use a dan cool cat drive, which is a fulltone ocd clone, and it gives a huge clean boost and really drives my amp, fairly transparent too.

Sorry dude I'm old school and I don't know about Avenged Sevenfold. But if you want the best clean boost around, Xotic RC Boost. Fantastic.

Use the link in my Sig. It will help you compare most od's side by side. It's a great link to figure out what sound your going for.
