I have a fender blues deluxe and need a pedal that can deliver a good amount of gain by itself. I have narrowed down my choices to two pedals, and I want to know what you guys prefer.

    Don't bump after twenty minutes.

    Hmm, how much gain are we talkin? What kind of music are we playing? I'd say testing them out your self would be the best bet.
    I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

    No. read the rules, then post threads.

    A) We need to know what you're playing.
    B) Don't bump your own damn thread after 20 minutes, fool. It's a great way to get nobody to answer you.


    TIDE: extra fail for this being your second thread on the same topic on the front page.
    I'm putting my GAS on hold
    for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.


    Don't judge me.

    I'm with Kevin here, but I voted Crunchbox in the poll, because it's just a great pedal.

    I'll be playing classic rock and blues, mainly. I'm wanting a lot of gain on tap, but not anything in metal territory. I can't test these out because where I live there are only two small shops that don't carry any boutique pedals.

    What kind of classic rock would you be playing. As in a couple of band names for reference.


    The Crunchbox does a great Marshall crunch well past GnR type gain, but if you're only going to be playing stuff with a light crunch, then go with the OCD.

    Definitely the OCD then.


    The Crunchbox is still great for lower gain stuff, but I think it really excels at GnR, RATM type stuff, so basically the JCM800 sound.

    Yeah, no one ever really calls me Felix. Which sucks cause I registered when I liked shitty bands so now everyone knows me as mcrfobtai
