it is an OD (overdrive) pedal and it "drives" your signal to give you breakup and ovrdrive. It is not as crunchy as a distortion pedal, but it is a smooth, creamy drive. they are pretty sweet. If you can afford it consider an analogman ts9 tubescreamer mod. it is pretty dam sweet sounding. I have the "brown" mod. hthere is a "silver" mod as well but it's a bit more $$$

how does it "drive" your signal? by doing what?

and how much for those pedals? what other pedals would you suggest?

it pushes your tubes harder to create a distorted tone.

pedals run from $20-who knows

the bad monkey is a good OD on a budget

but the Maxon OD808 is better

there are tons. what is your price range?

An Ibanez TS-9, as previously suggested, would probably be ideal, but I might recommend either the Boss BD-2 Blues Driver (don't let the name fool you, it can kick) or the Boss OD-3 Overdrive, which I've never personally used but hear excellent things about.

I'm not sure the precise exchange between US and Canadian currency but those are all under 100 US dollars (the TS-9 would be more with shipping and tax).

So it seems to be between the TS and the boss OD, ive also heard of the boss SD, is that better?

My gear is a Gibson Les Paul Studio and a Peavey Classic 30, if that helps
