Hey guys I'm trying to decide on a pedal unit for overdrive for the first time. I used to use an SWR IOD in the past, adn then an ampeg svp-pro so i never bothered to get pedal OD, and now im seeing the want to be able to switch it on and off within a song, along with the fact that i switched to an aggie db659 that only breaks up if ai crank it, with too much volume change i put up some clips from a song that has the effect i'm trying to get. it sounds like the same crunch from a Sansamp BDDI, but Im wondering if there are otehr suggestions you guys have that might be closer. My rig is in my sig for those who want to know. I also have a Boss me-8B, and it doesnt do anything half-decent in terms of overdrive, only good at fuzz. I like that raspyness thats added to the top in the wav files: here ya go: first clip second clip the first file is about 1 meg second is about .7 rounded up you can hear it in the mix for the first clip, and its switched off at the very end of the clip the second one has it soloed starting around 5 seconds it becomes obvious and is easier to hear and for anyone who wants to know its Chris Tomlin's live version of Not To Us at passion one day (the 2nd one day heh) can a sparkle drive do that sound also?
