I'm looking at buying an overdrive pedal. I want to get a crunchy bluesy sound, as well as a nice rock tone like Angus Young. I will be using it through a Valve Junior and Epi LP Standard.

Looking on eBay there are a heap of Behringer ones at a decent price. Is this brand any good? Are any of the following any good, and will they sound decent through my setup. Also, do you think I'll notice much of a difference to my Digitech RP80 Multi FX?

OD400 Ultimate Overdrive

BO100 Blues Overdrive

PO300 Ultimate Power Overdrive

VT911 VINTAGE TUBE OVERDRIVE

BOSS OD-3 OVERDRIVE

OD100 Overdrive/Distortion
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Fender MIM Standard Strat
Fender Deluxe Reverb
Digitech Bad Monkey
Electro Harmonix Big Muff
Ernie Ball VP Junior 250k
Dunlop Cry Baby Wah

Check out the Fulltone OCD or a Maxon OD808.

Well if you want a cheap one, you could always go with old reliable. The Boss SD-1. I have one, it works well for what it does I suppose.

That or a SD-1 they're pretty good for the price

The OD-3 isn't horrible either

I don't know how this would fit in with your setup, but the Electro Harmonix Metal Muff is really impressive, especially for the price, which is like $100 if you get the one with top boost, which I'd highly recommend. This won't be a waste of money, I think you'll be happy with it, I know I am. Great overdrive, low feedback.

It's a bit too scooped for Angus Young IMHO. The English Muff'n would be better if we're talking EHX.

How is the Metal Muff gonna give him crunchy bluesy sound?

check out the Maxon OD-9 also, most people will tell you to get the OD808 or the Fulltone OCD, but i like the OD-9 over the OD808......haven't tried the OCD though.

The behringer TS clone is fine.
And the wah is alright too. Just a bit noisy and sucks tone.

Anyways... Can't you just crank your Epi VJ? Isn't that the point of low wattage valve amps? Just crank it and get what you want. And I think with a SG/LP, you should be able to get Angus pretty well. Better than a pedal prolly could.

^He's on a budget, That is why he is looking at behringer in the first place.


Skimping on an OD pedal is a bad idea. Skimping on everything in the music industry is a bad idea. You get what you paid for.

Save up more money, and get a TS-808 or English Muff'n.

Do NOT go the easy way out and get a cheap pedal, you will regret it, and will have to re-invest in a new pedal withing a few months or years.

Yeah well sorry but I don't have the money. Which would be the best out of the ones I listed? I'm looking for a relly crunchy overdriven tone like Angus Young.

Will I notice much of a difference from my RP80?

I just found a bad monkey for a price I can afford and I saw someone mentioned it. Is it any good for the tone I want?
