Hey,
Eh... yet another one of my what should I get threads.
I apologize.
Anyways... I need a recommendation for what OD or boost pedal I should get to push my peavey classic's lead channel into rock lead territory. I was thinking a TS9 or an OCD. What kind of sound does an OCD have? I'd prefer a crunchier overdrive that boosts the top end and mids a bit more.. I definetely don't need extra bass (JJ preamp tubes on lead channel is already bassy). Thanks!

I was thinking of going on small bear and getting a tweak-o kit.
Or spend a bit more and go on generalguitargadgets and getting a stratoblaster kit.
They're both boosts but the tweak-0 is more of a treble booster too.
Do you think a boost pedal will benefit me more than an overdrive?
Or I could cheap out and get the 20 buck ted weber rangemaster clone kit.
I heard that's nice.

Weber has a kit for 20 bucks for it? Sweet deal! The only thing I would recommend, if you go the DIY route with a Rangemaster, is that you buy sockets for the transistor, if it doesn't already have some, and sockets for the circuit's input cap and multiple sizes for the input cap, ranging from .001uF to .068uF. The size of the input cap varies the tone greatly - so I installed a 6-way position switch to flip through the caps, on my Rangemaster. But using a socket, so you can just switch out caps without resoldering, and find which tone suits you best.

i own an OCD and have tried it on a peavey classic, imho it sounds amazing
it cleans up really well and really tightens up the bottom end

the OCD has a litte switch on top that is labelled HP and LP
HP gives you more mid, highs to sound kinda like a british amp
LP is natural to you amps distortion and doesnt clolur it at all

i actually want to buy a peavey classic now...

If you are into the Tube Screamer sound look into the MJM Blues Devil. If you want something a little "crunchier" check into the MI Audio Crunch Box. Damn I love those pedals.

Hmm... I forgot that the OCD had a switching system between 2 tones.
So basically it's a gain boost/OD, correct?
I want an OCD, but if I can get something that would solve my problem for alot less, i'd take the cheaper route. So i'd have cash for other stuff, like a wah or something.

well it could boost gain really well (just turn the gain down and pull up the volume)

but dont be fooled, this thing has A LOT of gain you could easily use it all on its own

for me, overdrive is really important so i dont mind spending a bit more
remember quality over quantity my friend

would you rater have 10 mediocre pedals or 5 amazing ones?

What is the most gain you can get from it on a clean amp?

to my ears its a lot of gain
i usually have the gain knob at 12:00 or less

but to your ears it may not sound like enough
you really have to try it out
