The sound I want is mainly an Angus Young sound. I also want to do some Clapton and some of the lighter Hendrix stuff. I have an Epi Valve Junior. Will a Bad Monkey achieve this? I can't afford a tubescreamer unfortunately.

Ok sweet. It should be good for some blues as well?

Yep, awesome pedal for the money. I'm thinking of swapping my SD1 for one.

I highly recommend the Bad Monkey. Just as effective as the tubescreamer for the musician with a low budget.

Play until she breaks up with you.

You should go like them...even if you don't like them.

The Guv'nor isnt analog and sounds digital and muddy. Please. DONT get attracted to the Marshall name. The MG has evoked a generation of tone-deaf teenagers who think their tone is t3h br00talz because it says Marshall on it

^I don't think thr guvnor is analog either. It is a pretty good sound pedal though, especially for being digital ( I think).

Edit: according to GC's site, the guvnor is analog. The GC website also says that the bad monkey is digital even though it is analog.

Level up, gain down, lots of highs and a bit of lows on the Bad Money + tube amp being pushed = nice AC/DC tone.

Oh my bad I thought the Guvnor was digital. I tried it out anyways and I wasnt to impressed. Sounded muddy and unclear.

It's that damn "Deep" knob, gotta keep it low to keep the muddiness away. But otherwise a solid pedal.

I love my Bad Monkey. Best $25 (ebay) I've ever spent musically.
And maybe we can fly away from here, surf on the debris of a broken scene...

The Bad Monkey is bloody great, it's easily comparable to a Tubescreamer, but they both have slightly different sounds. I'm sure it'll suit you right.

+1 for Bad Monkey from here too. I wouldn't use it as my main distortion (right over my clean channel) but it's awesome, especially if you want to boost your solos.
#23
From what you've just described, I'd say you're just asking for a Marshall Bluesbreaker.

well if you keep it on the clean channel it'll give you that bluesy overdrive tone. But I use it to boost my overdrive channel and I keep it on all the time. The bad monkey is an amazing pedal but it takes a second if it's your first overdrive pedal to figure it out. Even though it looks simple it takes some amp settings and settings on your bad monkey to get that perfect sound you were looking for. First day I got it, I was like man this ain't doing much. And then I tweaked with it and now couldn't live without it.
