I'm looking for something that can drive my amp a little bit harder, and maybe push it into some nice distortion. Thanks.

the boss pedals are all... bland, and a bit grainy. i personally haven't played a tubescreamer, but the ts-9, ts-808, or maxon OD-808 are all highly respected.

i had the zakk wylde overdrive. the best word to describe it is chunky/choppy. it's not a very smooth pedal, but perfect if you're not looking for a smooth overdrive.
Gibson SG Standard + 18volt EMG-81 & 85
Mesa/Boogie Mark IV + Recto 2x12
Keeley Modded BD-2
Vox V847a

if you want something to drive your amp a little harder... get the tube screamer
