I'll be running a telecaster through a blues junior. Anyone know of a cheap overdrive to use as it doesn't have a drive channel? I was reccomended a sparkle drive but I can only find them new, so thats a bit much. I want it to still sound good though. So what do y'all think of like a BD2 Blues Driver or the SD1?

If you wanted a great all around pedal I would go with the Ibanez Tube Screamer. But they're like $80-$180. I'm not sure what your budget is but maybe find one used? Good luck.

Call your local Guitar Center and see if they have any of the MXR Classic Overdrives for $30 left. You won't be sorry if you can get one.

I found a Tube scremer right at the top of my budger that i may be able to get. I also have a BD-2 that I found for a little bit less. How do they compare to one another?

Does it work well as a drive on it's own, or do you use it as a boost?

Get a TS7 if you want footswitchable OD. Better yet would be to use your guitar's volume knob for cleans and in between shades of dirty.

My blues junior overdrives pretty well without a pedal. One thing you might consider is just getting a boost pedal instead of a distortion since to get more overdrive all you really need to do is boost the input sound. Or as someone else said, you could always just crank it and then use the volume knob on your guitar.

You'll be fine without a pedal. The BJ has an excellent drive.

I've had the BD-2 for a couple weeks now and I like it a lot. Anything from gritty boost to searing blues to wall of fuzz . . .

What about a danelectro tranparent overdrive?
It's very good and cheap.

You could make a tube screamer, if you're any good with soldering irons and schematics...
In fact, it'd be easier to tailor it too your preferences!

I have a strat that I run through a blues junior, and i gotta say, save up the money and buy a tube screamer. I bought a BD-2 and it was decent but the tube screamer is a great tone through that amp.
