30 watts isn't a "low wattage" tube amp

Check out things like the Digitech Bad Monkey, Boss BD-2/SD-1/OD-3 (actually boss make a lot of overdrives, although a lot of people say boss sucks), Danelectro Daddy-o (anti-danelectro bandwagon are probably gonna flame me for recommending that too), or if you're not on so much of a budget, check out brands like MXR, Fulltone, I think even Seymour-Duncan make some overdrive pedals... There are lots out there.

I'd also recommend the Marshall Bluesbreaker (BB-2), it's kinda like 2 in 1, it has the standard overdrive function as you'd expect, but it also has a clean boost function.

You could also try a Marshall Jackhammer, this is what i use as an overdrive (Beware the distortion mode though, it has aids). It's a very high-gain pedal, but if you don't play high-gain stuff its still useful as a classic rock/blues overdrive if you turn the gain and volume down to about 10 o'clock and turn the contour to 0.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I got a BBE Green Screamer and I'm lovin' it. I mainly use it as a boost over my dirty channel.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

Has anyone got any clips of a TS9 being used on an Epi VJ? I'm going to America next week, and the TS9 over there is only a little bit more expensive than the Bad Monkey is here.
Happy, lost and still unaware.
