Hey, I'm probably going to trade in my Marshall for a Blues junior as it's just too big for my needs.
My problem is the whole single channel thing. I've got a Boss SD-1, would I be able to get a sufficient overdriven tone without cranking it up to 11?

I think that would work great. The sd-1 is a great pedal, i sold my tubescreamer and bought it. It has alot more warmth and a smoother tone than a ts9.

I realise I was kinda vague there. I'm after a Steely Dan/John Butler style overdrive. So nothing really heavy, but with a bit o' balls

Edit: Also, do you guys think I should be able to get myself a straight swap for my amp (with Marshall 1936 cab (2x12))?

Yeah, you can get a really decent overdrive with the preamp driven, and the master low. If not, the SD-1 would work I'm sure, as my Bad Monkey works great.

Damn, I bet that TS works great. I've really loved the Bad monkey sound, but want to hear it with a TS808/TS9. I doubt I will end up with one though, since for the same price I can get an OCD.

I think for those steely dan-esque overdrive tones a Blues Junior + OD pedal is going to do better than the JCM 900. I played one live, all the way cranked (on the 50 watt setting) and i really did not like it very much. Tons of gain, much better for thrash metal than classic rock.

Of course, it will sound better cranked.

So what od pedal would you guys recommend? Stick with the SD-1? Would there be that much difference if i were to get a Ts9 or OCD?

The SD-1 is a pretty nice pedal. I A/B'd it with my TS-9 and it was similar, but the gain was more grainy and there was a bit less of a mid hump.

You could get it keeley modded as well.
