I'm looking for a relatively cheap overdrive pedal. I looked in the Read Me thread but the information seems to have disappeared?

I don't have much money at the moment, so what would be the best option?

relatively cheap? Boss SD1, its like the cheapest pedal on Boss's lineup (of course it doesn't sound amazing but for the price you can't really argue)

i dont like the MD-2.. try the SD-1 or the OD-2 (i think, may be 3)

You should be able to get a SD-1 on ebay for about £18-24 delivered

What sort of sounds are you looking for too?

The MD-2 is a distortion, not overdrive.

You could find a used Boss Blues Driver (BD-2) or OD3 on ebay quite cheap, they're great pedals when matched with a nice amp.

I don?t have any firm idea on what sort of sound I want. I want that sort of an added elevation to my guitar playing. I haven?t really used effects before, so I?m willing to experiment (though cheaply).

In england you can get Boss dead cheap, especially their overdrives. Boss OD-3 is teh best overdrive. MT-2 has become legendary, and you'll easily find a second-hand one in good condition for half the price (if you're THAT poor)

an awful lot of people are raving about the Digitech Bad Monkey

for dead cheap you can get a crappy danelectro fab overdrive, that sounds okay, but won't last very long, It's only about $15.00 us

Excuse my french, but this thread is full of FAIL.

Really, repost it, this is bad. Boss are not the best pedals, and you shouldn't be buying pedals if you don't know what they do!

And, there's a spammer in here too. Christ.

Hey guys don't click that link because it makes you make a spam post with that link in it.


Oh and in relation to this thread, the bad monkey is a pretty decent overdrive and i don't think there's any better for the price.
