Looking for affordable drive pedals get a marshall tone; AC/DC lead tone and GnR lead tone.
Some pedals i've been looking at are the Joyo British Sound (tech 21 clone) and Marshal JH-1 Jackhammer.
#2
do you want one pedal to cover those or are you ok with two?

tc electronic dark matter would probably do ac/dc

some form of crunchbox clone would probably do gnr

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.

From my experience, I'd definitely avoid any of Marshall's own pedals. They sound good when they're on, but they have the worst bypass I've ever experienced & kill your tone when they're off.
Gibson LP Traditional, LP GT, LP Studio, SG Standard x2
Barber Tone Press > EHX Worm >TC Polytune > MXR Custom Badass 78 > EXH Glove > EHX East River Drive > Zoom G3 > TC Spark Mini Booster

^ yeah i think they're half-assed bypass. it's ages since i've tried them but i think, as you said, they have the rep of sounding pretty good. a buffer in front should cure the bypass problem, but that assumes you already have a buffered pedal or a standalone buffer. If you don't, that's going to up the price considerably and might put you into the next price bracket of pedals (which might not necessarily sound any better, of course).

Never heard of them. Are they based on anything?


I mean, AC/DC is pretty low gain so I would imagine the amp can handle that. Maybe play with your settings? How are you running the amp?


That being said, for Marshall tones I like the Zvex Distortron, the Xotic SL drive and the Ramble FX Marvel Drive. Depending on your preference for Marshall tones, some will be more suited than the others. The Zvex and the Xotic are the most versatile IMO.

IRRC they're amplifiers designed and put into production by Gear For Music. I also think they're hybrids. If I remember correctly.
Bass Gear:

Mensinger: Speesy
Fender Precision 1989 (CIJ Rosewood)
Fender Steve Harris (CIJ)
Lakland J Sonic 5
Epiphone Explorer
Maruszczyk (custom) Jake

I did some digging and found out they're rebadged Belcat amps. They almost look like they're based on the Fender Hot Rod series. They have similar specs to them.

^ yeah i think that was the word on the net (i haven't tried them, but i'm aware of them). i think they're tube, too.

^ he's in the UK, I think (those amps are only sold by Gear4Music, as far as I'm aware, and it's a store here, so I'm assuming he's from here), so those pedal prices aren't going to be right for here unfortunately.

In the NotCheap category, take a look at the Pinnacle (and Pinnacle Plus) from Wampler. They also have the Plexidrive. Some of the best vintage Marshall pedals I've heard.

I got a bad monkey overdrive pedal for free with the purchase of something years ago. It's got a nice crunch overdrive that's clean. I like it a lot.

Never formally priced since I got it free, but thinking it's only like $50 bucks, maybe cheaper used...
#16
For Cheap get the Joyo Ultimate Overdrive. Far better sounding than any pedal that cheap has a right to sound. I do not have the British sound to compare it against but the ultimate overdrive is the real deal.
