I got a tube amp a week ago and I want an overdrive pedal for solo boosts. Im going to be using it on the dirty channel so I don't want one that will make it all fuzzy. I play hard rock and metal. My budget is around $70 and I was thinking about the boss sd-1 but I heard they loose they're crunch after a while. so any suggestion would be appreciated.
I've never used one but I know a ton of people use Tubescreamers...
That's right, you can use an Ibanez TS-9 or a Boss OD-1 (vintage) OD-2.
I use a Boss OD3 and it's perfect for boosting.
The Boss BD-2 is an amazing boost, or of you care not about gain boost get a transparent booster like a BBE boosta grande, or FREQ boost, or a MXR boost, any of those are great
Do you know the MXR Micro amp ?
Maxon OD9 or OD0808 is like original Tubescreamer. Apparnetly Maxon reissued these becasue the current Tubescreamer reissues out suck. the maxons contain the origian chip or something ,that makes it sound a lot closer to origianl than the Ibanex TS's.
^^^ yeah the re issue 808 by ibanez has the same chip as well the maxon has a ****ty casing and the ibanez is easier to find... theres no difference...
