Hey UG,
I'll be getting 150 bucks (give or take) around soon, and I decided to spend it on some necessary pedals. The pedals wouldn't have to be GREAT, just good basic pedals.
I was thinking about the big muff pi or a TS9, for a overdrive/boost or to add some sustain. And maybe a decent compressor.
-OR-
I'll use the 150 bucks to upgrade the speakers in my peavey classic 50 410.
I"ll probably upgrade the stock speakers (no name black backs, but I hear they're still the blue marvels) to ted weber signatures.
Any opinions on what I should do, or should I save it for something?

Thanks!

It might be cliche or over done, but I suggest a TS-9. I mainly use it as a boost but its nice on a clean channel for a pleasant light OD. There are much better ODs out there, but for the price you can't beat it.

I know I'm not helping much here, but I have never liked the BIG MUFF pedals, so I personally wouldn't go for that one. Any BOSS distortion pedal will be good, and they aren't TOO expensive, I don't think.

Ted weber signatures are 40 bucks a pop.
Of course, i'd have to raise a bit more cash to get them, but that'd be no problem.

Well, i'll go try out a TS9 somewheres.
Also, the Boss super overdrive is only 50 bucks for some reason, but i've heard that these really aren't that good.

Yeah I'd stay away from any boss/digi-tech ODs or distortions.

^That's what i've heard too.
Maybe a TS9 would fit my needs well, as I play alot of SRV and stuff like that.
Or, should i just get one pedal and just get a fulltone OCD?

The OCD is a great pedal, would you have a chance to try it first though?

I hear those are good.

Yeah give the J&H a try and see how it fares. What would you be using your OD for mostly? Clean boost? Slightly dirty boost? or light crunch? BTW, I am also a homeschooler

Oh sweet, didn't know other homeschoolers existed here.
I'd be using my OD mainly for a boost into my peavey classic 50, but i'd probably use it many different ways.

My TS-9 works great as a clean/powertube pushing boost, and it does all the other OD uses very well too. I run it into my rectoverb combo and it tightens up that loose recto gain and makes it a monster!

Erm... Ever tried the older BOSS overdrives? Digitech Bad Monkey?
Personally I think they're great.

Can't say I've tried the Maxon or the OCD, but I've tried the TS9, it's impressive. I mean I liked it, yeah, but it wasn't thaaat great. But I was just noting that not all Boss/Digitech stuff is absolute rubbish. Sorry if I sounded aggresive or whatever

Personally, I'm a fan of the Danelectro Daddy-O and Cool Cat Chorus pedals. You should be able to get both for under $100.

I've tried and also liked the Maxon OD808, Digitech Bad Monkey, and Grunge.

If your cost is the biggest thing, there's also the Digitech Distortion Factory which is supposed to emulate a number of models. I've heard good things about it, but haven't had a chance to try it myself.

^That's alright man. The Bad Monkey ain't digital unlike most Digitech stuff, it's analog and it's really good for the price. But with the threadstarter's budget, I agree that he could buy better.
