Hey people, I've recently bought a GH100L and am looking for an overdrive pedal, which one would you recommend out of the two?

Bad Monkey- http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=13051

TS9- http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=8475

Or the TS 9DX for £1 more? http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=9106

I'm also looking for a reverb and chorus pedal so i would appreciate some advise on which ones to get

Well, I haven't tried a real Tubescreamer, but the Bad Monkey does a really good job at boosting my Laney VC50 which uses an almost identical preamp as yours, only with another channel added.

So i can really recommend the Bad Monkey but seeing as i haven't tried any of the other pedals i can't really compare them, sorry.
My gear:
Ibanez RG 570 w. Irongear pickups
Tokai EX-55 Korina Explorer
Laney VC50 w. Eminence speakers
Digitech Bad Monkey
TC Electronics Nova Repeater
ISP Decimator
Roland Cube 20X
BC Rich Bronze Series Warlock
Pound for pound, the bad monkey is infinitely better. If you're looking at a ts9, I'd get a fulltone ocd or menatone red snapper off of ebay. Much better pedals.

That's a lot of booze. Frankly, I'm impressed. You're of a stronger timber than the average man, jimbob! Hail you.

Yes you should go to a doctor, fucking moron. We can't do anything about your hemorrhoid.

I have a ts9dx.

it works really well, and has more options for like 10 dollars more.

It helps to make your pinch harmonics stand out more, or livens it up a bit more for a solo.

The only problem I have noticed, is that you have to roll off the guitar volume a bit because it does make EVERYTHING louder....and turning up the noise gate/reduction pedal kind of is reversing the effect of the ts9dx in the first place.

Peavey 6505+ Head

Ibanez TS9DX Tube Screamer

I think if you can stretch your budget go for the Ibanez TS808 and for a chorus maybe look into the EHX small clone
