OD- Overdrives tube amps..
Distortion- emluates overdriven tube amp...

OD- Tube amps
Distortion- SS or Tube... more so SS your tube should have enough gain if not get an OD pedal

OD, soft clipping made to simulte/drive a tube amp. Distortion is harder clipping and generally used for grunge and metal and the such IMO.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

O.D: Increasing your guitars signal so that it overloads the amp's signal input and produces distortion. Usually used with Valve amps, as the clipping (rate of distortion) is more gradual and sounds better than Solid States, which clip harshly and sound bad.

Distortion: An emulation of the gradual clipping (although harshness varies with model) of an overdriven amp. Because this is synthetic, you are able to get a much higher gain sound "out of the box." However, it is possible to use an O.D with the distortion you have already got (again, better with tube) to produce a better high gain sound with both the amp and pedal working together.

overdrive is more natural. if you have a tube amp, overdrive is when the signal naturally breaks up when the amp is turned up louder, or if the gain is turned up. overdrive pedals simulate the natural break up of an amp, and can actually help a tube amp break up.
