Hey Guys,

I was wondering, out of these three pedals, what would be the best sounding overdrive. Keep in mind I am using a solid state amp.

- Boss Blues Driver

- Boss Super Overdrive

- Digitech Bad Monkey

Any other suggestions are welcome as well! Thanks!

Honestly, you'd probably be better off saving for a new amp, because you won't get the most out of an OD pedal unless it's a really high-end SS amp or you get a valve amp. However, out of those three, the Bad Monkey is probably the better choice, but I've never played the Blues Driver, so I can't really comment on that.

either new amp, or a good distortion pedal. depends on the SS amp though, my OD sounds quite decent through my Peavey Blazer

when you say mostly you could play death metal too :P

EHX metal muff is worth a look, despite the name you can get very light distortion too, it'll do blues. best try it first of course. Then if you do happen to play death metal too the metal muff will sort you there lol

What if I just buy a vox ad15vt? It's a valve amp and its in my price range I don'nt think I'd need any more pedals after that right? I already have a wah

it's actually a hybrid amp, but yes I wholly support that choice

^Eigh, a OD woult be just ok with an SS practice amp. I hated the Bad Monkey for a long time...then I bought a Valve Junior, and it's my favorite go-to pedal for anything blues/classic/garage rock.
#11
Well I found some other amps that I could work with, out of these which would be the best for my style?

Fender Champ 600

Epiphone Valve Junior

Vox Ad15vt

Palomino V8

Crate VTX30

Crate V5

The Palomino, Champ and VJ are all definitely worth a look. I'd be tempted to get a VJ head and cab, simply because you can have a 12" speaker that way. However, unlike the Champ and VJ, the Palomino also has gain and tone controls, I think.
#13
^All true. Any of those would be nice, but the Champ is pretty strictly a light blues amp, at most, and rather quiet.
