Hey guys, I recently acquired a Genz Benz Jr 35 watt amp to help my 12 string rise up when I'm jamming with my bandmates. However, I am really interested in acquiring a high quality overdrive pedal that will give me some overdrive similar to, say, the John Butler Trio.

Money is no real object but try to keep it below $150 (however I am trying to buy used so this may not be the biggest issue).

I'm pretty new to FX pedals, so if you know a little bit about the pedal itself that would really help... Or a source I can find good basic information.

Also, I'm sure this is a question only a neophyte like myself would ask, but would the same pedal work for both my 12 string acoustic and my 6 string electrics?

Thanks again for any help

What kind of pickup does your acoustic use? piezo's, magnetics and microphones react very differently to gain and effects.
Remember if you overdrive an acoustic theres a very good chance that it will feedback something fierce.At the least grab a sound hole plug.
