Just to complement my future amp, what is the best blues pedal for under $100?

A crappy amp right now, but going for a Twin or Super Reverb. I want a Hey Joe sound, the solo type blues sound.

Someone used a Bad Monkey, and it sounded so much like SRV, and he played through a Crate, so it must be good.

The SD-1 by Boss, would that give a Hey Joe/ Texas Flood sound?

maybe hey joe. the solo in that just had a very tiny bit of break up, it was actually a pretty clean sound. it wouldnt do the Texas flood sound. ol' Stevie palyed a fender vibroverb being driven by a tubescreamer and a 150 watt dumble steel string singer simultaneously on that recording. its a tough tone to nail.

A stock SD1 is actually kind of mediocre for the price.
It's a great platform for modding though.

If you want the classic Texas blues tone, I would recommend to anybody a TS9 Turbo TubeScreamer. I think they go for about £90, but they don't come with a power supply, so you could pick up a universal one for about 5 or 10 quid.

Boss Blues Driver, it runs about $70 great pedal. Or Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer. Those are pretty close to $100, and sound amazing.

Do that a modded blues driver sounds incredible. Bad Monkeys are awesome for the money as well.
#23
what's your future amp gonna be?

For some good blues, let your amp do the work, and add just a little gain with a pedal, just to boost the solo's
-------------------------------------------------
- Fender Strat (1988, Japan)
- Epiphone Les Paul (2008, Korea,)
- Epiphone Sheraton (1988, Korea)
- Morgan WG20GEN (2003, Norway)
and some stuff non-used stuff for sale/trade in the Netherlands
#24
A Super Reverb, Vibrolux, Twin Reverb, or Deluxe Revervb, whichever I find the best deal on. I'm looking at the OD-3 or Digitech Hardwire Tube OD thing.

Keeley mod on Boss Blues Driver can nail it, or a Maxon OD808. Unsigned, darkarbitr and chea speak the truth.
#27
i use a zakk wylde overdrive and i love it, its just like a fulltone ocd with less gain. it does a great job just overdriving the amp and giving it a warm sound, i strongly recommend it

Bad Monkey > stock BD-2


I can get a great SRV/Hey Joe sound out of mine.

For blues, Screamin Blues>Bad Monkey.


I like the Screamin Blues more than the BD-2 anyway.

I've heard the Digitech pedals sucked compared to Boss, but I don't believe it.

it seems to me the ts has ingored all of our suggestions


SRV used a tube screamer so either get a ts-9 (or a used ts-808)

bad monkeys are tubescreamer clones so if you want to even get 2 since they're ~50 (srv did this) go fo rit

this is for like the digitech death metal pedal. the bad monkey is not bad by any stretch

97 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

I'll recommend the Bad Monkey.

I run a frontman 212R amp (because I like the clean channel, a lot, and it was dirt cheap. 50% off marked price) and I can't stand its overdrive channel. It is OK, but it is missing any expressive tone that it could have.

The clean channel driven by a bad monkey, however, is great. Very touch responsive, and very versatile. I can get a bit of the stevie punch. Best $90 (aussie) I spent.
#32
I figured SRV toured with two 808's in case one crapped out on him during a show.

not all digitech pedals are worse than boss pedals, and not all boss pedals are worse than digitech pedals.

they both make some crap pedals and some good ones.

I didn't meant to ignore your suggestions, but I don't want anything modded. How thick can the Bad Monkey get?

Actually, I have been looking into one of those Keeley BD2's lately.
They sound pretty nice, and they are very well liked. Too bad I can't try one out. I'm getting a burst of extra cash in, and I may spring for a Keeley BD2 and a clean boost of some kind, among other things.

aw man

from what i hear, the bad monkey isn't the greatest standalone overdrive, but for pushing amps and adding some gain to an already overdriven amp it's great.

That's why I didn't really want a Digitech, what could the Screamng Blues do without a pushed amp, I want a pedal I can push an amp with, but I also want one that can standalone if I can't play too loud. And DarkArby, there's demoes of the Keely BD-2 on Youtube, just search Bd-2.

Oh, to answer your question, yeah, the screamin blues is a good standalone OD.
It works good as a boost too, but I'd prefer a bad monkey for a clean boost.
