Me again. I just got my Peavey Classic 50w 2/12 about ten days ago and i'm loving it.

But, as the music my band plays, uses mostly only the lead channel for rhythms (always light distortion) i need a overdrive pedal so i can get my lead sounds easily (lots of solos too) in middle of a song.

So, i need a cheap (about 50&euro boost overdrive pedal, nothing too heavy but something which will give the sound a bit of extra warmth, gain and volume. My two options at the moment are Digitech Bad Monkey and Boss SD-1 Super overdrive, but i would like to hear some other options.

(Yes, it will most likely be used on the dirty channel)

Eh, don't cheap out on your overdrive. Those pedals are both pretty mediocre and won't do your amp justice.

The Bad Monkey is the best out of those two.

The Bad Monkey is actually very good as a Boost pedal and the Gain works well too. Not to mention it has seperate bass and treble level knobs. I run mine at Gain = 0, Level = 10, Bass = 6, Trebl = 5.

He wants a cheap OD pedal not the best.

Yeah, i'm aware of it, and i'm gonna get a good one when i'm on my finances again, but buying the amp kind of took my money away, and i need a pedal just to be able to set 3 different sound settings (clean, rhythm, lead)

Could take a look at the Marshall Jackhammer too. I preferred it over the Bad Monkey.

If you're using it through that Cube 30, I wouldn't even bother, it won't do what it's supposed to do with that amp.

LOL sorry, I didn't get much sleep last night

I say go with the Bad Monkey, it's a decent pedal for the price and will add more gain than a lot of other overdrives if you want it to.

While it is a decent pedal for the price, it's a distortion, not an OD.

If you don't plan to mod anything, BM.
If you do, the SD-1 (there are alot of 'em on the internet).
