hmmm... heard? hmm.. mesa vtwin siguro.. next na ang sd2 for me.

i've tried the following though:
1) boss od2
2) boss sd2 - currently own one
3) boss bd2
4) bad monkey
5) ts9 and ts9dx
6) sansamp triac and gt2 - not really overdrive pedals, but can serve the purpose of being one.

Too many overdrive pedals around.  And it would really depend on a lot of factors,  like what amp you are using, the type of guitar you have, the kind of tone you want, the kind of music you are playing. I think asking what is THE BEST OVERDRIVE is too limiting. As an example, if I use a TS9 voiced overdrive pedal like an SD-1 with a Fender Twin, you get just enough mids to get you to cut through the mix, if I use it with the Peavey Classic 30, the mids are more pronouced giving a different tone.

The best overdrive pedal really is the one that works for you. Mine is an HBE Powerscreamer which I find is one of the most versatile OD pedals around. For the price, the BM is a good choice too. Have not tried the Klon and the Tim which quite a number of people attest to as the "best" OD pedal.

My Nobels ODR-1 (really nice, i doubt if i'll ever sell this one).....  although i hope to get a TS9 reissue soon....

Now, we are 3 who owns this relic pedal  :-D I think SpilledMilk also has this gem! I think, this is the warmest OD that I've used (TS9, Bad Monkey, SD-1, OD-3) It can also go to distortion zone as well... really the best money I've ever spent on!! Couple it with a TS-9 (stock) sustain heaven...................

The "best" overdrive pedal is your next one.  ;-)

But right now, it's a tossup between an FD2 (for single coils) and Tim (for HBs).


lufet yung tim. i like it more as a dirt pedal than a boost for OD'ing the amp though.

madaming maganda. depende kung saan mo gagamitin and ano ang sasaksakan.

thank you, thank you. :lol: :lol:

does it have enough output for that? saan ang unity with very light dirt dialed in?

yung ultra fuzz has plenty of output too and can double as an od din. unity is at around 11 o clock with very little dirt dialed in. past that it'll give your spittly tone extra oomph.

Also have the ultra fuzz, nice pedal as well 8-) the Zvex FF drastically cleans up around 8-8.5ish. Different shades of dirt from 8-10.

I have three that I really like A Fulltone Fulldrive 2, a Lovepedal Cot 50 and a Lovepedal Eternity. They're nice and they do the OD thing for me pretty well.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned the Rat yet ..

Probably has one of the widest gain sweeps of any dirt pedal, with very usable (and great) tones at every point. Fascinating lil' black box ..  :-)
