I started playing last year so dont criticize me i know for the most apart what the effects do but when artists do the high notes in solos they sound more electric i always thought it was overdrive but before i spend the money on an OD pedal i wanted to make sure. Also if it is an overdrive pedal what is a good one to buy that isn't to expensive. Thanks guys!

They're either using distortion, metal, overdrive, or a good amp.
Do you mean like a wah pedal, or a boost? Can you give a link to an example of what you mean?
well im using a ibanez smashbox distortion pedal through a marshall micro stack but i cant get a sound like that.
Yeah, give us a link to the sound.
no not like wah more like boost like when someone does a solo the notes still sound electric when i try to do them mine sound flat
Yeah, it must be a boost pedal.
It could just be a tone issue, mess around with your eq
alright ill mess with the eq and see if that helps any but if i have to what would be a good boost pedal to get

an overdrive pedal (OD) does that... a bit. an OD is more of a 'tame' type of distortion pedal, but if you run it into an amp that is already a bit distorted then it can really kick it into hi-gear.
if you are really looking for something to make your leads sing, then maybe you should look into more of a true distortion pedal, like a ratt pro-co or a fuzz pedal.
i personally run a boost pedal into an overdrive pedal into a fuzz pedal. like in this clip at ~4:50

this is cheap, it is known for being a close copy of a very popular boutique OD
alright thanks guys
That's what I was thinking.
no its not pinch harmonics
could it just be some delay making it sound 'fuller', mixed with an eq boost?
