Good stand alone overdrive?
« on: April 26, 2007, 11:28:24 AM »
Aside from Bad Monkey, what's a good stand alone stock overdrive that has big bottom sound and sustain? I heard that SD-1 can take away your Bass tone... Blues Driver they say has annoying chicken picking sound? How about OD3? Kinda steep for the price compared with other Boss pedals... worth it?

Thanks!

Nice... Moderator na pala kayo Kulas and BAMF:-D Dati pa ako GAS sa TS9 eh... ano bang magiging boost if ever? TS9 or yung BadMonkey? Fan kasi ako ng cascading two OD's

Thanks bro!

Boston OD100. Overdrive architecture, but with the gain of a distortion. Even when stock.

you are right! the OD-3 is the best BOSS od that sustains and can be tone-rounded the price speaks for it self of 6k

thanks bro! hehehe.

pang boost? hmmm, nasa panlasa mo na yun eh. actually, halos pareho lang yung tonal quality nung TS-9 at badmonkey, mas bilog lang at klaro yung TS-9. sa chain ko, TS-9 + SD-1, yung TS-9 ko yung boost. yung timpla ko sa TS-9 low gain lang, parang clean boost sha. tapos yung SD-1, low gain din. hindi din kasi ako mahilig sa mashadong hi-gain na OD eh. yun, sakto lang tunog nun for me, hehehe.

BD-2 is tone-rounded but I guess would have lesser sustain,drive compared to OD-3.

BM daw is a good alternative though I haven't tested it myself, for a price of 2.5k which is cheaper
but can the BM be a really stand alone overdrive?

I am currently seeking for the best OD too I will cascade it with my multifx zoom G1x ( I am contented with the modulation offered by this baby, but for the drive it still sounds un-natural to me  :oops:)

boston OD100 is not cool, my ears pledge to its dismay

the od3 compared to the sd1 has more volume..... the od3 is so loud with all knobs at 12 o clock it's like having the volume of the sd1 at 3 oclock. its also cleaner and has lesser mids than the sd1.

medyo matalas ang BD-2 for my taste, although it has its applications. i haven't tried the OD-3 so i can't post a review on that. yung badmonkey, IMO, i don't think it could stand as a standalone pedal, unless hindi mo kailangan ng boost for solos. ok na yung badmonkey for dirty rhythm and blues licks.

ganito na lang pre, bili ka ng dalawang badmonkey, bale 5k lang yun, tapos cascade mo, hehehe. joke!

i've heard the boston OD-100, medyo matapang sha at matalas. very harsh pag stock. dunno pag modded na.

ah, best standalone OD. contact mo si ejbasses. panalo yung kalikot audio OD nya, pagawa ka. it has enough grit and hair and thickness to stand alone.

Nice... G.A.S. 'to sa OD3 + TS9/5 + BM... Sayang wala tayong boutique pedals masyado dito bukod kila BAMF and EJ.

Thanks! Keep it cummin!

if you're looking for an unmodded overdrive stompbox, the OD-3 is the best one available locally. it outperforms the more expensive TS-808 (has more grit and "breathes" more) and it's a bit more transparent as well. i'm even using it now as a clean booster. P5,950 (Yupangco price) for the OD-3 is much, much more worth it than the P9.1k TS-808. the Bad Monkey has too much mid hump for my taste, but it does have its good qualities (it's great for for light jazz OD tones). try mo OD-3 + SD-1 with the OD-3 as your main dirt pedal. that combo will definitely work great :)

nahanap mo na ba yung lost gear mo pare?

Hey Ian... wazzup. OD3 it is then and maybe BM / SD1. Hindi kasi ako masyadong fan ng Boss... Let's see sa payday.. I will complete all my setup again!  :-D

nahanap mo na ba yung lost gear mo pare?

Wala na bro.... haaay... nabenta na raw yata sa Raon. So siguro look put na rin muna ako sa pedals sa Quiapo. Baka kahit paano eh mabili ko ulit iba kong gamit dun. Buti na lang nga an mabait parents ko na bigyan muna ako ng GAS money this 30th para maka simula muna ulit.

Thanks a lot!

that's great! God giveth and God taketh away, but when He replaces your stuff, better ang dadating na bago :wink:

kung Bad Monkey ang bibilhin mo, better use it as your main dirt pedal then ipangboost mo yung OD-3. transparency is the key for clean boosting. ayos din ang kalalabasan nyan. i've used the Bad Monkey as a booster to fuzz pedals though, and ayos naman kasi naturally ma-mid naman ang fuzz. spottan mo yung sa Buy and Sell, may nakita akong nagbebenta ng OD-3 for P3.7k a few weeks back. sana available pa yun para sayo..

I really don't have much budget of 6k for the OD-3, I think for the meantime I will go for the BM since it has a 2 band eq. I can pretty tweak my sound I guess. (posted sa classified LF: Badmonkey baka meron kayo kilala nag-bebenta)

Ako lang yata nakaka appreciate ng BD-2 hehe, na-try ko din kasi yung OD-3 nung binili ko yung BD-2, mas nagustuhan ko yung BD for some strange reason....well kasi mas mura!haha! :lol:
Clean boost lang naman gamit ko sa kanya pero I tried turning up the gain and ok naman yung dirt sound niya, stands up to its name hehe. :-)
