I am new to the forum and this is my first post but I have been hanging out here a while.

I am looking for a pedal to boost my amp. And was wondering what would be the best pedal for this. I know the Maxon od-808 and the Ibanez TS-808 are really good but I haven't tried any of them out. What I'm trying to do is tighten up my dual rect for some of the heavier stuff that my band plays. And I know bands like Killswith and Bullet do use overdrives in front of their amps to do this. And info on which one would work the best would be great.
Paul Reed Smith Standard 24
Paul Reed Smith Custom 24
77 Les Paul Deluxe
Mesa Dual Rect (eurotube personal fav tubes)
Randall 4X12 (v30's & G12T-75’s)
IMO, tubescreamers and (most) clones are slightly over-rated, especially if you're looking at the ts-808. If you're dropping that kind of money, save yourself a few bucks and get a Fulltone OCD. It's more versatile and sounds better.

KsE uses the maxon if thats what you are looking for, im guessing the ibanez will sound pretty close
