Ok, so it's my birthday in a little less than 2 weeks and I was considering getting a new overdrive pedal. I have a BOSS Super Overdrive (OD-2) and my amp (Line 6 Ax2 2x12) gets some pretty good bluesy distortion on it, but I was thinking of getting a higher quality pedal.

I had my eye on the Vox Satchurator, or one of the Blackstar HT series pedals. So tell me what you think. Also, nothing over $200.

Thanks guys.

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

firstly wrong forum needs to go in the gear and accessories forum

secondly the satchurator is absolutly brilliant i`ve been using one for a year now without any issues, whilst it has more than enough gain to suit all genre`s it`s best suited for blues and hard rock but can cope with metal (pre st anger metallica era).

i have used it with a ss preamp and a valve amp it`s more suited to valves but worked well with the solid state.

ignore the fact that it is a sig pedal and concentrate on its sound. more importantly go try one.

oh i`ve also got the big bad wah which i reviewed for UG and bought that cos of the quality of the satchurator.
you may want to take this to the GG&A forum, you'll get a hell of a lot more help there.

EDIT: and definately a +1 for the satchurator

Great pedal, the More switch is great and the od/distortion is awesome for the price.

I've been looking into buying some high quality boutique OD pedals as well, so this might help.
The paul Cochrane TIM Pedals ($165) are supposed to be amazing if you're looking for a clean boost/ low gain OD.
A couple other options would be the Hermida Zendrive ($199) or the Mosferatu ($199) which is a higher gain version.
The Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret ($159) for less gain or Supercharged Overdrive ($159) for higher gain.
