    Maxon ROD881 - Valve Overdrive/Distortion.
    The overdrive setting is tubescreamer sounds and the distortion setting is for heavier tones.

    There is a footswitchable boost to both these settings.
    I have used it with Line 6 and Behringer solid states, which it made them sound like pure valve and a fender blues deville - which was a fantastic sound, great cleans then great overdrive ( and a boost).

    My new amp has all the overdrive I need - I might pick something up for a lead boost sometime. They retail for £185. I'm asking for £95

    Here's a bit of info. and the link to harmony central.

    For the lead boost thing, try the Marshall Bluesbreaker pedal, it has a "boost" setting which seems to just be a perfect lift for that sort of thing.

    They aren't too dear either - I have one and I couldn't be happier :)

    Dead on. I've never tried the bluesbreaker but I'll keep an eye out.
