Im looking for an OD pedal that will give me a good boost through an tube amp. I only need it really as a volume booster for a school production Im in as part of a band. It needs to have a fair volume increase too when I tap it on, cos Im told I need to blend into the background whilst the vocalists are singing... The only reason im not bothering to research this for myself is because I need it in a hurry...

The cheaper the better obviously, im on a really tight budget but ill consider anything.

Any suggestions boys and girls?

Why don't you just turn your guitar volume down and pick softer when people are singing?

Honestly, it's pedal this, pedal that these days...doesn't anyone actually bother learning how to play the guitar any more?

well one of my all time favorite pedals is the ibanez tube screamer but it costs around $100. however the boss super overdrive is pretty nice and only costs around $40.

Well because its a tube amp im using, if i turn town the volume im not gonna get the same tone as I would with the volume up. All I wanted was a bit of help, not a guitar lesson...

If you're in a hurry and need cheap, then I'd go over to your nearest guitar shop and pick out just about any cheap OD pedal.

Try to avoid Behringer + Digitech.. Those are the only terrible brands I know of, but even they will do what your after.

Some common cheapies you're likely to find at any guitar shop:

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/reviews/guitar_effects/ibanez/ts9_tubescreamer/index.html this one is a little pricier, but it's a pretty damn good pedal.
