I'm looking into getting one of these, and Ebay seems the cheapest option.

One description I read though said that it's solid-state overdrive.

Does this mean it's pointless me getting this, as I have a DSL 401 which is tube (methinks).

I just want a pedal for a bit more crunch and drive, maybe for boosts during solo's etc.

Cheers.

The description of it as a solid-state overdrive just means that the pedal itself is solid state. For what you want (slightly more gain, solo boost etc) a tubescreamer is perfect; if you can find a good deal on eBay I'd go for it.

I've been following one that's about to end, it's up to £60 already I think.

I don't get why people bid so high when it's still hours away from ending.

But there's also one for sale in America at something like £35, which seems pretty cheap.

I'm in no rush, so I'll wait until I can get one cheap, cos I'm a cheapskate.

TS9s are good ODs. Don't read into the fact it says they're SS, with pedals that doesn't mean an awful lot really (until you get into higher end gear), it'll help boost your 401 a lot. As already mentioned, keep an eye out for a good deal, and get it.

Ah well I took the plunge and bought it on Ebay for £65! ($130)

From Japan. Description said it was brand new, but we'll have to wait and see!

Woop I'm excited now, it better be good!
