I'm a TS9 user but I'm looking into finding 1 or 2 other OD pedals that i can have for secondary OD. Any suggestions on pedals that would pair nicely to a TS9?

I am holding off for now on the OCD, I can't explain it but I just don't want that one yet, I at least want one other suggestion before I start looking at the OCD.

For what it's worth I use a Rat2 for distortion, but I'm not much of a distortion person, and I like the Rat after I got it modded. I use a fender twin for a tube amp.

Thanks in advance

i don't have anything in mind i just want good options, i need to have some different kinds of OD, my TS9 is an analogman mod and it's smooth as buttah, so some other tone options would be a bit more gain, some more warmth, and maybe something thats crisp...not the best descriptions but you know what i'm going for (maybe?)

are you using it as a boost or a standalone od?

i have the dano timmy clone, and also the joyo ocd clone. assuming the real things are similar, the icd would work well as a standalone od and the timmy would work well as a more transparent boost than the ts clone

timmy would do the crisp thing. or even an sd1 (though it'd likely sound closer to the ts than a timmy). maybe even a marshall bluesbreaker

ocd would do the more gain thing

dunno about warmth, the ts is already fairly warm

that's not to say there aren't also other options which'll work, of course

oh if you're using it as a standalone, those catalinbread mosfet-based pedals might be worth a look (and other similar type pedals, like the brownsound in a box etc.). I haven't tried them, but they might be worth a look. clips i've heard have been good (but then clips sorta tell you very little).

There's the Boss BD-2. It's not exactly the best OD pedal ever, but it is different from the TS9 and TS808.

i love my MI audio blues pro. i haven't seen too many people with them, but you can find them used easily for <$100. yes it is a tubescreamer variant, but it is a far cry from it.

fulltone fulldrive is nice too. i just wish you could use the boost without the OD on. pisses me off.

catalinbred DLS i have wanted one forever.

i do like the voodoo lab sparkle drive as well (~$60 used)

the tim/timmy's are amazing, more costly, but perform excellently.

Actually, it is just a tubescreamer with a modded circuit to give it some asymmetrical clipping like the Boss DS1.

Almost all OD circuits are a take on the Tubescreamer, because while everyone makes changes to the OD sounds to give it more of the sounds they are hearing in their heads, all the sounds they are hearing are usually derived from your vanilla Tubescreamers.

TS: I think it'd be easier for us if you tell us EXACTLY the sound you want from your OD, rather than telling us what you don't want it to do. Its like saying, I want to eat an apple that's not red, and doesn't taste like an apple.

Other than the Catalinbread range, I'd recommend the AmpTweaker Tight Drive, one of the AMT OD pedals (http://amtelectronicsusa.com), the NOC3 Pure Drive and the Rock Candy, 320design Landmighty Overdrive, OKKO Diablo or the VFE Pale Horse

i don't have any in mind. you don't always need to have your eyes set on the end, it's about the trip you take to get there. besides im not about to roll call a list of guitarists whoi want to sound like, i like what i sound like.

didn't mean to give you the hallmark movie speech but lets just put it this way...

i'm looking for multiple options for different kinds of ODs that are good...i'm not some hack who uses POS gear and has his head up his ass, i will look at any pedal that i think are interesting, but at the same time i've never been one to go find these obscure pedals that nobody's ever heard of. not to say they're not good, but i've just always been the one who looks for standard pieces of gear that has set the playing field for everyone else, like the TS and the OCD.

but, all in all these have been great suggestions i appreciate everyones input!

Ever tried one of the BYOC ODs? IIRC, they give you a few opamps and alternative options on the circuit components so you can sculpt your tone some what.

FWIW, you can also consider the JHV3 Ghost Drive, I like the clarity of that OD and it's tightness. Although that said, I know many people think its overly expensive. Also it's got quite a few clipping options built in, and you can request for changes to the circuit to have things like different opamps or even a scoop toggle. Between the Ghost Drive, Pure Drive and the Silverkiss, I'm pretty happy with the tones I get.

FWIW, I don't believe in a journey unless you know where you are going.

Have you ever played the ice-9? I would say it sounds more like a marshall bb which is also a common od circuit.
Back to the question.
I know I'll probably get flamed for this, but I've heard great things about the JHS morning glory. Marshall bb clone. Super transparent. Vox ice-9 is a good one. If you want a little more grit you could go for a keeley baked ts9, those are pretty sweet. I would look at the king of tone, people seem to be raving about that one. But for non ts type sounds, ice-9 is the way to go IMHO.

there you go

if in doubt guess it's a ts-alike. because odds are it is

Visual Sound Open Road? It can do crisp, warm, more gain, less gain, etc. The only reason I don't have one is because I don't need another pedal with that amount of overdrive on tap...although it's ability to be very clean on low drive settings is breaking my resistance down...

Satch asked Vox for an OD based on a TubeScreamer circuit that incorporates asymmetrical clipping like the DS1. That said I am quoting this from an interview with Satch when the Ice9 was released.

so i checked out the open road by visual sound and i liked it a lot, i've narrowed my choices to that and the OCD, i'll most likely end up getting both at some point but i'm still thinking about what i want first. thanks for the suggestions guys!

I agree. Boss OD or SD 1, lots of players use Boss and their reputation is well earned, I have a Keeley modded SD-1 and I think it is real good but then I got a stock Ice 9 and like it better.

I haven't tried all the pedals out there, but on youtube anyway I heard a guy pushing a Marshall with a Fulltone and that one sounded good also but the Ice 9 is a good pedal in my opinion.

I have one and can make it sound great, but if you have a less than near excellent ear for dialing tones and EQ'ing, you'll accidentally make it sound like shit. It's a hard pedal to use, but if you have a good ear, it's great.

+1 to the OCD. I know you don't want one right now but it is an awesome, awesome pedal. Very versatile and voiced a lot different to a tube screamer.

+1 to both the BB Preamp or the OCD. Both are fantastic pedals. It took me months to pick between them.

Ts9 is my favorite Overdrive pedal as well, you can hear the low end really well in riffing and 2 note chords.
Maybe you would be interested in the Boss power stack, it acts like an amp gain instead of a pedal distortion and it has more gain added as an option
