I'm pretty torn. I have about $100 to blow, and I need a pretty good OD pedal. My two best options, I think, are the Boss SD-1 (my friend has one and it has a very nice bluesy tone) and the Big Muff (which is much better quality, so I hear.) The Boss is about $55, and and the BM is around $90. What's UG's reccomendation?

big muffs more of a fuzz sustain type thing i think you should try both man ya dig

Woman tone, eh?

Set treble to PUT THE TOILET SEAT DOWN WHEN YOU'RE DONE
Mids to YOU'RE DRIVING TOO FAST
Bass to WHAT DO YOU MEAN, "MAKE ME A SANDWICH"?
Gain to NOT TONIGHT, I HAVE A HEADACHE.

I have the super OD and LOVE IT...makes my 15 watt solid state roar....any tone you could ever want

also you should be able to get it for cheaper

I'm no fan of the Boss, and the Big Muff is more of a fuzz than an OD.

So I'd suggest a Digitech Bad Monkey. Less money than the Boss, but better.

bad monkey. for sure. it's VERY light on your wallet and alone can get you beautiful blues to lighter rock for sure. put it in front of a dirty channel and you got some nice added saturation to get you METAL!!!!

i have an sd-1, and i love it. I got it for 35 bucks on ebay, and just like some one else said, it makes my solid state amp sound kickass. i'm currently saving up for a big muff, too.

You could find a used SD-1 cheap and get it Keeley modded.

I think an Ibanez TS7 is about...$40 or something and you could find the chips necessary to mod it to TS808 specs pretty easily on eBay for like, $5.

Stock, a bad monkey. If you want to mod it, get the SD1.
The SD1 is alright. Some people who like more of a crunchy overdrive may like it, but I like alot of bass, and it just didn't have it.
