I've heard people talking about tube amps and ifference from distortiona nd overdrive, so tell me...

What is the difference between distortion and overdrive and what one would workbetter with a Roland Cube 30 and a Squier Strat?

if you want a bluesy sound youd get an OD, if you want anything heavier youll need a distortion. but the roland doesnt take pedals all too well, and already has some top notch distortion (for what it is anyway).

and many of those pedals are quite different, it depends on what you are looking for.

overdrive is low gain and usually used in combination with distortion as a boost, or by itself as a low gain channel (ex/for classic rock, blues, stuff thats low gain)
distortion is higher gain, and usually used by itself on the clean channel.
for you, id reccomend a distortion.

Distortion would work better on a Cube, but why not use the distortion on the Cube?

It doesn't work as well with pedals.
