Don't run an overdrive through your amp, theres no point. Overdrives are to push the power tubes in your amp harder, and you have none. Distortion clips the signal and it doesn't really matter about the ampflication. Get a distortion and run it through the clean channel.
These go to eleven...

Overdrive has smoother distortion than a distortion pedal, better for blues and soft rock. Distortion is better for rock to punk.

Start off by looking at the Boss DS-1 or 2. Look at the new "Official Pedals Thread" for more suggestions

Pedals don't go well with modelling amps like the Vox.

that pink queen, so far all my pedals have worked with the amp just fine, ive heard that effects dont go good with modelling amps but i guess my amp is fine with them, yes i was looking into the ds 1 or ds2 but idk which one would be better

I'm not sure you really need a pedal in the first place. The distortion on you amp should be just fine. I wouldn't get it just because you can.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?
