I was just curious if any owners of the boss od-20 had any things to say good or bad. i was considering selling all my drive/dist pedals and getting this because it has a lot of pedal settings, a lot i would love to have but i cant afford 20 pedals.

the pedals i have im most concerned about losing are my big muff and metal muff. would the od-20 do those pedals justice, or should i stick with my current rig? or just sell one and save up and get it to replace the rest? if so, which one does it not do so well? thanks a lot all.

I think the Muffs (tee hee!) would be better than the OD20.

But, what sounds do you want? That's more important.

the main reason im looking at this pedal is because i like having variety. im not in a band or anything so im not hunting for the be-all sound, i like to dable. the most important sound to me right now is the big muff on half distortion and full tone (if u have a muff (tee-hee) ull kno what i mean. but i like to have that nasty distortion too to mess around with some newer rock and metal.

I have an OD-20 and used it for about two years, to the point where I was quite satisfied with the sounds I was getting from it. I thought I had a really good blues, metal and rock tone out of it. Then by chance I got a ToneBone Hot British pedal at a really good price and started messing around with it. Now I have the ToneBone set where I want it, and I manipulate the tone and volume controls on my guitars to acquire the sounds I want. I find that even though I can get more appropriate sounds (extreme high and low gain levels) out of the OD-20, everything sounds better through the ToneBone.

So if I were you, I'd keep the pedals I already had then would expand on them. The OD-20 is more versatile, but it just doesn't match the articulation of a higher end, more dedicated product (especially not a ToneBone).

thats the main reason im not running out and buying one right away. but i am on an extremely tight budget and having all those options would be great, but only if they sounded good (by good i mean, close to what their modeled after), u kno.

Yeah man if I were you I'd still shy away from the OD-20. Instead, spend time trying high end distortion pedals until you find one versatile enough to suit the needs you want. I have learned to produce a variety of sounds with just one setting on the ToneBone. A good pedal should allow you to do that.

Keep in mind, the OD-20 isn't exactly cheap. Paying a substantial amount for 22 mediocre effects is not on par with paying a similar amount for one really good effect, in my opinion.

I've got an OD-20. It's everything you're looking for. I bought it for the very same reasons. However, now that I've figured out what sounds I like I'm looking for a more a specific pedal.

You can have mine for $100 if you want it!
