I'm currently playing a strat with lace sensor golds in it through a Vox AC4TVH.

I already get a pretty decent drive through the amp when its hot, but I need something with more gain for a indie/alt rock kind of tone. Something like The Strokes...in that general area anyways.

I was interested in the TC Electronic Nova Drive, as it has both overdrive and distortion, and I like the tones it produces a lot. Has a price tag, and so I'm definitely open to cheaper suggestions. I'm not specifically looking for a overdrive & distortion combo, but I don't mind the idea at all. I could make use of both most definitely, but I'll probably be using the drive most often.

I have read that both guitarists from The Strokes use Jekyll & Hyde od/dist pedals, but after some reading I'm kind of scared of the fact that it isn't true bypass and there were complaints of the feedback that the pedal produced. =/ I'm not even really looking for their specific tone...just that feel.

tldr;**** i'm high;420

happy new years -.-

well, a couple good overdrive and distortion pedals are the visual sound jekyll and hyde or fulltone gt-500.
as far as just an overdrive there are lots.
bad monkey, blues driver, tubescreamer, tim or timmy, mi audio crunch box etc. etc.

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

You might not be alone.

The Nova Drive is a versatile pedal for sure. Because you can use the distortion and overdrive separately as well as stacked (you can pick between overdrive first or distortion first) to get yourself a wide variety of tones.

Now for the bad. Well not really bad, but I found the pedal a little on the bland side of the spectrum. I like a pedal with a little more character.

Personally I like the T-Rex Gristle King Overdrive. It does everything the Nova Drive does but better imho.
