If you want to go a little over $100, I've got a Digitech Death Metal.
It only has four knobs [Level, low, mid, high] but it's decent for the price.

Not an overdrive.

And yea, a TS9 would be good, but it depends on what music you want to play really and what kind of overdriven sounds you're looking for.

A TS9 would be a good amp booster.

You could try a Boss Metal Zone (I have one of those, and I'm selling it; if you're interested, let me know); they run for $100 new...that's a distortion pedal and not an overdrive pedal, though.

well then you aren't looking for an overdrive pedal, unless you're looking to mix the od pedal with your amp..


so DO look at a digitech metal master, and know what the difference between overdrive and distortion is next time

it depends if you have a tube amp then you need a OD pedal but if its a solid state then you need a Distortion pedal

Yeh if you want to ruin the tone of a tube amp. Unless it is a distortian pedal with a tube in it, or it is really high end, stick with overdrive.

Exactly

an OD pedal overdrives the tubes more so you can get mor gain out of your amp

As odd as this sounds, try a Digitech Bad Monkey.

I know people who hate digitech and call it too digital sounding, and yet love the Bad Monkey. Its a cheap tubescreamer copy, without true bypass. But, being digitech, you can still make it sound really gainy or distortiony even on a.. erm.. solid state.

I would also second the Boss sd-1, it totally kicks ass in front of my jcm 800. You could also get it modded by keeley for an additional $80 down the road, and I am one of the people who DOES notice a big difference in tone.

On a budget, I would recommend the DOD 250 reissue as well. Less-expensive version of the tubescreamer, and it was one of the original od pedals, and would work great for blues/rock tones.

the bad monkey is analog... so it shouldn't sound digital.

Can you use a TS9 too boost your already overdriven sound for solos ?? for use with a JCM 800 ?

no it will boost your gain to. You can use a equalizer pedal though. If you set all the sliders at 0 in the center and push the volume slider up it wouldnt change your tone just make it louder.you just gotta click it on for solos turn it off for other stuff

Well aren't you clever. There's definately a decent difference in tone, but $80 to replace a couple of capacitors, a couple of resistors and the LED? You could do it yourself for next to nothing, and get to try out different values to get exactly what you want.

The SD-1 is a copy of the TS-9 but clips the peaks and troughs of the signal unequally. This gives it a slighty richer more complex sound. If you compare the prices you see what a rip the Ibanez or Maxon pedals are.

I'm guessing you've never played a Maxon. Considering the wiring is done a lot differently. And I got my Maxon for $89, at that price it rapes the SD-9.

*shrugs* the major difference is the quality of the components. If you're prepared to get out the soldering iron and experiment to get it to your liking then it's gonna sound great however. The differences between the SD-1 and Maxon don't justify the huge difference in price.

Don't get a ts9! seriously... I tried one today through a jcm800 50 watt master lead combo and it sounded like ****... and it's like £109 $200 approx in U.S currency.
