Right now I'm deciding between a Boss OS-2 or a Digitech Bad Monkey. I use a Schecter C-1 Hellraiser with 81/85 EMG's. I'm looking for a hard overdriven, grungy sound, something like Jerry Cantrell's tone, what should I get? btw I occasionally use a Marshall JCM900.
Boss is generally mistakenly well-thought, as is Digitech. If you want a seriously good, all purpose, ridiculously versatile overdrive, you want the MI Audio Tube Zone Overdrive. Really.
just get the bad monkey ts, it's not bad for such a cheap pedal, and I haven't had good experiences with boss pedals.
im a fan of the bad monkey. dont know if ive tried that particular boss pedal, but it probably has a different voicing. the BM has a mid hump like a tubescreamer, and the boss probably doesnt. i would try both out to see which you like better. and if you cant, i would say go for the BM cause it is a solid pedal and great for the price.
+1. I'm glad we have mods like you.
Bad Monkey is kind mid heavy and tubey, Boss Overdrives tend to be crunchy.
