So im using a bad monkey overdrive now only as a boost with the level knob. Other knobs at zero.
Would it be any better to use a higher quality OD when im only using it as a boost?
Inspired by Ibanez RGA321F Prestige, Gibson Les Paul Standard
Powered by CAA OD100 standard+ , Mesa 2x12
Affected by Maxon OD808, Mad Professor Deep blue delay

If you have $240 bucks for a Keeley TS9 Flexi... Sure... But if you dont have the cash to blow then its not needed. The Bad monkey is the best out of about 15 or so od's I have tested/owned/demo'ed and the only one to beat it as a clean boost is my TS9DX - FLEXI 4X2. There might be something cheaper out there but I haven't found it. Especially if your looking for something transparent with low and high controls. For those purposes I still prefer my Bad Monkey.

Well better is.... better. try something of a higher quality and you may find you'll use it for more then just a boost.
