    What is the meanest, grittiest, most growly overdrive pedal out there? Something similar to what Jimmy Page used. Something that isn't quiet at all. I was thinking something like a Danelectro D2 FAB Overdrive Pedal might give you that, just because it looks so cheap. What do you think?

    Which example of Jimmy Page? Do you want low end loss so you can sound like a g****r?

    Without a doubt the Creepy Fingers Doomidrive. Jimmy used a Uni-Drive which is what the Doomidrive is based on. It has a 'Bottom' control that allows you run it full range. Sounds seriously mean on you're driving a cab with ripped speaker cones.

    I liked the Doomidrive. I think it sounded best running a muff type fuzz into it rather than as a standalone OD.
  8. The Oxford is nasty, if you want it to be.. I love both it and the B3K:

    The oxford def sounds more unkept, esp if you turn off the speaker sim(the gain is nowhere near maxed, btw):
