I'm looking into getting either a Valve Junior or a Blackheart Little Giant stack. I play mostly blues and classic rock. I also want to get an OD pedal so I won't have to crank it all the time, so what would be a good match for these?

my neighbour has a blackheart and i love it, 5w/3w switch lets you crank it at lower volumes and it has a 3 band eq, whereas the valve junior has none of them (although im sure there are mods for it)
Gear:

MIA Fender Stratocaster
Jackson Kelly KE3
Ibanez Universe
Marshall JCM 800
Orange Jim Root Terror
Mesa 2x12
Ovation Custom Balladeer
pedals and such in profile

Blackheart!
Excellent tone at higher volumes.
It's no tweed, but it's clean is really glossy and crystalline.
I think you'd dig it.

Valve Jr and MXR EQ. be closer in $$ value with a much better EQ.

I'd go for the Blackheart. For OD, try a tubescreamer.

i don't think you can go wrong either way. i have a modded vj and love it to death. give both of them a listen and see what ya like. either way you go i would suggest a good reverb pedal. here is one of the sites where i've got part's to mod my vj. i did the bitmo spanky and jj tubes.

and i also put in a heyboer transformer from allen amps. heyboer claims a gain to 8 to 10 watts

anyway hope it helps and good luck on your choice! a tubescreamer or bad monkey both work well.
