so, im about to come into some cash (im in malaysia so i dunno if amount will help) and will be looking into an overdrive and a chorus.

my half brother in england is willing to buy pedals for me and bring them over.

ive been looking into a bad monkey, but heard that it sucks tone, true?

for a chorus, maybe a small clone but heard it breaks easy.

recommendations?

bad monkey is good for a cheaper pedal but if you're willing to spend more money on it i suggest the Ibanez TS9DX

^ +1 Great pedals for a clean boost.

Though the dirt on them is godawful. Don't expect it to even remotely sound like a Tubescreamer, even if it is modeled after one.

Because I bend in such an unorthodox fashion; the notes kinda slide up and slide down...

I still have it, it's just not listed.

Although, it's not for lack of trying. It's been in on Craigs/Kijiji for a while now.

Yeah, that's not what I was getting at.

The price of the rest of my gear has little to do with the drive on the Monkey.

The drive on the Monkey is as good, or better than, most of the other 808 based ODs you can get without spending a small fortune.

That being said, I'd probably stop using mine if I had an OCD...

It was replaced with my Maxon OD808, which I sold for a profit recently. I'll just snap up another used one later.

I didn't think it sounded anything like the Bad Monkey though. The Digitech is far crunchier and less smooth. The lack of mid hump is very apparent as well.

Like I said, it's a great pedal for boosting because the EQ is balanced and tweakable with 2 knobs, but if you're looking for a TS type sound, I'd look elsewhere.

A used Visual Sounds Route 808 V2 would be a good choice. I tested one a couple months back and they're great! I only went with the Maxon because the jacks on the Route are PCB-mounted, which means I can't fiddle with the guts as much as I'd like.
