yah the SD-1. Bad Monkey dosen;t sound good on it's own, but with other pedals is phenomenal.

Danelectro Metal. Digitech Bad Monkey, Digitech CF-7, Crybaby Wah, Danelectro EQ.
i dont know i find the gain knob on the bad monkey to be quite useful it def makes my tone sound way more saturated in gain.
what does bad monkey sound good with? i have a big muff but i dont have a 9v power adaptor for my muff (batterys dead too) so i can only run one pedal at a time.... the bad monkey does work well with a slightly dirty amp though
i use it with the peavey 6505. I've never used it with a distortion pedal. I hate distortion pedals.
