they are a milder form of distortion. you can get them anywhere pretty much anywhere instruments are sold, and the prices vary drastically.

Do they give the amp more distortion or something?

^Yeah, they either push a tube amp into natural overdrive, or just add gain if it's already distorted. They're often used as solo boosts or for amps without enough gain. Not much use with a solid state, though.

they work great with SS amps, and they arent made to push an amp into distortion, thats what a clean boost is for, ODs are essentially smoother distortion pedals, i wish people would just get that right.

OD isnt necesarily milder than distortoin
just less gritty

much better sound on high notes and clearer in general on single note riffs
used alot on solos to add clarity while distortion is often better on chord rhythms

go to a music store that carries something like the Visual sound Jekyll and Hyde pedal
it has both milder overdrive that would work well for jazz, blues, stuff like that, and alot heaver overdrive that youd hear in metal songs

various OD pedals are BOSS Super Overdrive, Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde, the clapton digitech pedal has some OD settings (milder kind), the Ibanez tube screamer (all models), the zack wylde OD (avoid in my opinion), and the Coffin case BLood drive pedal

OD emulates the sound of tubes getting driven. If you really want your tubes driven look at Boosters.
