    I may buy something shortly....not sure.
    Which is the more versatile overdrive? I'm primarily looking to use as a boost into an amp with gain, but if an overdrive pedal sounds good on its own why that's a win. Here are 2 I'm looking and I'm not really looking beyond these so please don't suggest a Keeley Phat Mod.

    A search shows the 59 but once you click it shows at 99 again.

    Nice stuff. I'm pretty fond of the Lunastone True Overdrive 1 myself.

    I have a Vick Audio Overdriver that's pretty good.

    Do to the overwhelming response I have decided to listen to all the participants and get an MXR! We almost broke the internet!

    Good choice.

    I had the TC and while it was ok for really hitting the amp hard, I found it to be super dark (note I dont have any guitars with single coils).

    Every demo I heard of it made it sound dark. I knew instantly I wouldn't like one (it's not a sound I like).
