I'm trying to find a pedal that sounds like a pushed tube amp. My funds are kind of tight (poor college student), so I'm not going to be able to shell out more than $130 and that is pushing it. I've done some searching on here and a lot of people recommend pedals that are close to $200 and I just can't do that (or justify it), plus I want something that is readily available should something happen to the pedal if I love it. I realize at that price point I won't be getting the best, but I'm sure I could get something decent. I'm playing a bass with active pickups/active preamp (which can be bypassed). It has a pretty hot output. I would only consider a pedal that has a blend control because I just want a little bit of 'pushed dirt' but if I could dial in more dirt at will, that'd be a plus. I really like the sound of the Ibanez TS9B, but some searches here say it isn't as good as it sounds on YouTube and I'm having trouble finding more sound clips. I'd really like something similar to that sound, I've read on here that the Maxon OD9 and Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive are both similar sounding, but what is the real difference? My local GC has a very limited effects selection, mostly Boss pedals and Big Muffs. They could probably order the pedals in though, I haven't asked. Obviously I'm looking for the standard "don't rape my low-end." Does anyone have any other recommendations? I have played a Boss ODB-3 and it was way too harsh.
