Okay, so I'm in the market for an OD pedal. My MESA F30 sounds its best with the contour on, so I'm going to keep the contour on all the time for my rhythm playing, and use an OD or boost pedal as a solo boost in its place. I'm playing a Gibson SG Special faded (soon to be replaced by a Schecter C-1 Classic) and I play pretty much everything: Sublime, Phish, Cream, Rush, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, The Darkness, and even some ---core stuff. I've got it down to three:

Ibanez TS9DX: it's a Tubescreamer, pretty hard to go wrong from what I hear, but it's expensive.

Digitech Bad Monkey: I hear it's a decent OD and it costs about half as much as the Tubescreamer

Marshall GV-2: I'm not really sure about this, someone reccomended it to me in another thread. It seems like it'd be much too thick of a distortion to use as a boost, but the idea of having a JCM800 in a box is pretty cool.

How do you say "I'm okay" to an answering machine?

Trust me, I'd be getting those if I had the money. Unfortunately, even the Tubescreamer's getting pretty pricy for me, since I'll already be buying this along with the Schecter. Do you have any experience with the Bad Monkey?

I hear v. good things about the bad monkey though.

Yeah the Bad Monkey is supposedly a good budget overdrive. I still have to try one out myself sometime.
