You really have to try them. they are voiced differently. I had a TS 808 and sold it. Just didn't care for it. The OCD vids sound really good to me, but i think in the end I'm just gonna go with the Wampler Plextortion distortion pedal.

youtube is probably your next best bet to narrow down your choices.

Ffs why does no one search? Theres an ultimate OD thread, if you'd searched you could have posted there, thats why it was made. To cut down on threads like these.

I've heard that both the Fulltone OCD and the Zen Drive are good. I myself own an Ibanez TS9 Tubescreamer and MXR M133 Micro Amp, and I am content with them.

klon centaur's pretty badass. that lovepedal eternity's meant to be great too, but i haven't tried it. ditto that new hoochie mama one.

depends on the tone you're after and how much you want to spend to be honest.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

well, the great thing about tubescreamers is that there are so many mods availiable for it. but it's the same for the Boss SD-1. i say try a bunch out. me, i abolutely LOVE my Ibanez Tube Screamer TS808 RI. it's handwired (but i don't think that changed the tone that much myself) and has a really clear tone, even with the gain maxed out.

i hear the digitech Bad Monkey is pretty decent for the price.

I love my Fulltone OCD. It's a great overdrive. It gives my 6505 a really nice "Marshallesque" crunch/growl that it would normally NEVER have. It makes for a really unique tone. The Maxon OD808 and OD820 are also really nice OD's.

Can't believe no one's said it. If money isn't a problem, it's gotta be the Hughes and Kettner Tube Factor.

I have the OCD. I love it. I run it through my Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue, and can get a variety of tones from it. Best pedal in my opinion.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

well they run you around 300-400 bucks. im not sure the exact price is. reason why they're so expensive is because they use tubes in the pedal
#19
NO, please not the ****ing Bad Monkey!!!

I would look at the Xotic AC Booster, sounds like it's right up your alley.

I always get into trouble here over this Zack, but basically you could do SO much better for a little more money. Overdrives are not exactly expensive, just save an extra $100 and get something that will sound good with everything. The Bad Monkey barely passes as a clean boost and sucks when you turn up the drive, I have played it on two separate occasions and I hated it.

I was thinking of buying a bad monkey; what's wrong with the bad monkey?

well nothing really, for a budget OD it does the job pretty well but the threadstarter said he's after the best OD and the bad monkey is a long way off being that
