    hey whats up?

    im planning on changing up a few things on my pedalboard. I want to get rid of my sans amp and buy an overdrive with more transparancy and gain range.

    I was considering:
    EHX English Muff'n
    Fulltone Bassdrive
    Fulltone OCD (looks kinda nice)
    Boss SD-1 with keeley mod

    I got tired of how the sans amp would completely change my tone every time i needed overdrive, so out of the ones i listed im looking for my tone to shine through and still give me a tube drive sound.

    What do you recommend?

    i checked the distortion megathread, wasnt specific enough.

    Search for my thread on the EHX English Muff'n... sound clips and everything for a good idea.

    I reccomend the Fulltone Bassdrive. It is a great OD pedal. I am considering selling mine though. Since I bought an Aguilar AG-500, I never use the pedal anymore.
  4. Geoff, send me a PM if you decide to sell it. I might be interested!!! :p

    Yeah the Fulltone can sound somewhat like a SansAmp with a bit of patience, just cleaner.
