    Re-doing my pedalboard and I need a 1590A sized OD. I'm looking at the COG Effects Mini 66, but what else should I look at? Looking for versatility to handle songs that use some OD or fuzz. I don't play djent or metal.

  2. I’m always a recommendation for the 66 mini... I like that it has blend plus bass and treble simplified and just works well. For me to get a nice low gain / low mid OD. I think Southhampton 5th gear and a few others may be the same size?

    Thanks! I also have a JHS Mini Fuzz Foot, but it seems to go to extremes too quickly.
     
  4. Despite mr excanes demo, mini 66 doesn’t get that saturated... it can get crunchy but not really into distortion territory compared to my mbd1. I bought it for a few songs in my band list and love it so much it’s always on, I have it pretty low and blended at a decent level but I just adds an extra something good with bass / low mid boost

    Some very good offerings from SFX

    Keeley Katana (no idea if this one is good on Bass, Keeley stuff tends to favour guitar usage, IMO)

    TWA FlyBoy OD

    Cusack has some small ones...

    Then there's the plethora of Chinese brands/rebrands such as Mooer, Rowin, Outlaw, Valeton etcetera etc ...

    DIY? Go to town... Don't DIY? Have them Pre-built for you by these guys, or someone more local.
