Hi people,
So I've been playing with my Boss MT-2 for a while now, I use some 'Aggressive Thrash Metal' setting that seems to fit any song I play, problem is, it doesn't work the same with most of Nirvana's, Foo Fighters' and Paramore's songs, I guessed that it's an overdrive pedal I need. any recommendations?

What other gear are you using (guitars, amps, other effects) and what's your budget?

Standard Tele (modded to Nashville specs)

Orange Rockerverb 50 MKI
Vox AC4c1

And pedals!

What amp do you have? If its tube an overdrive would work great, if its solid state a different distortion pedal would probably do the job better.

So sorry I forgot to mention it,
I have an Ibanez GAX30, my amp's an Ibanez TBX30R, it has both clean and distortion channels in it, not a tube amp. and I've got a Boss MT-2 as I was saying.
I can spend around 200$. prices are a bit tricky because I might just not take a risk of ordering a pedal online and just buy it locally, and prices are a bit different in Israel.

I rather take care of that after finding a pedal, which concerns me more, I'm getting along with this amp

It sounds great but I'm good with the MT-2 for now, what I need it Overdrive. any thoughts on the Roadkiller? worth the cash?

Overdrives are designed to push a tube amp, IMO I've never had a good experience using them with a solid state. Try something like an Electro Harmonix Big Muff.

DigiTech Grunge Distortion Pedal. That seems to be what you're looking for

Or maybe a Boss Mega/Turbo Distortion. Not as high-gain as the MT-2.
