I'm looking for an overdrive pedal that has a nice smooth texture to the tone but with a nice high end detail. I want something with not a lot of dirt on tap from the gain knob at all and that stays clear with a nice clang to it. I also would prefer not to hear a large mid hump or bass cut as it's going into a Vox AC15. I don't want to hear anymore mids added to the substantial amount already there or hear any bass taken from the modest amount there. I just want a nice light grit for open chords and arpeggios without the volume jump that just boosting the amp for those results will yield. Will be paired up and possibly stacked with the Fulldrive 2 MOSFET. Thanks.

I think a Keely Katana might do the trick. It is a boost. The dial is push pull for clean or dirty. I think it's got up to 12db+. Like non master volume amps more volume = more gain. Super transparent and extremely responsive from what I remember. Lovepedal also has a couple real mellow overdrives that are worth looking into. Eternity and kanji are 2 to look for.

I suppose my budget is anywhere from $70-$150. I'm trying to get away from the tubescreamer thing. Since my Fulldrive is already pretty related to that sort of design but with more options and room for tweaking, it's kind of redundant for me to hold on to my Route 66.

Used TCE NOVA Drive? I got mine for $120 shipped (like new). I use it as a clean boost when I don't want the extra sonic layers (for lack of a better term) from the Green Rhino. Plus, I think the distortion side would play nicely with your VOX.

timmy's the normal suggestion without spending silly money on a klon (and assuming a clean boost wouldn't just do what you want).

haven't tried the timmy, but i have teh dano v1 trans od (which is supposedly a clone), and it definitely does the transparent od thing.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
