Hey guys I'm a total overdrive fiend...wondering if you guys have anything else to recommend
So far I've built/own:
Lovepedal Eternity (TS)
Rat w/ LED option
Danelectro Daddy'O (Guv'nor)
BJF Honey Bee
If they're anything worth trying, I'm interested in: Bluesbreaker, Timmy/Amp 11, CM Plexitone, Wampler amp ODs
I think the Timmy is worth the build. I don't so much love it as a straight ahead overdrive into a clean amp but it is great at hitting an already cooking amp and also works great after another overdrive or especially a fuzz pedal.
I also really like the Cot 50 or the amp50 or whatever it's called now. A very straight ahead overdrive (just one knob after all) that works pretty nice with the guitars volume knob if you're into that. Works best when it's connected directly to the guitar though as buffers before it seem to make it to bright for me. I build one into a 1590a box so it's nice to just leave in a guitar case if I ever need it.
And don't overlook the box of rock, the whole thing or just the overdrive side. Pretty cool sound that seems more "amp-like" to me than a lot of other overdrive pedals. Can do a nice ac-30 kind of thing with the tone up or more jtm-45y with the tone down.
Mad professor sweet honey OD. Really amazing od in my opinion. it probably just is a few tweeks on the honey bee.
Yesterday i finished the mad professor bass od for my dad, and belive it or not it sounds great with guitar. very open sound and was great worked great with wahwah. I will probably build one for my self maybe with a few tweeks just for tweeking : p
If you've done the Guv'nor and you're looking at the Bluesbreaker then I'd recommend the Shredmaster, Miro was kind enough to do the layout after I requested it and it's got a nice range of EQ and gain options. Other than that I'd recommend the Purple Plexi 800, BBE Green Screamer, Miro's 'Big Grace' layout and surprisingly the BOSS SD-1 was a very nice straight up OD. If you were after a little more gain I really enjoyed the Runoffgroove Mockman. I probably should add though that I haven't done any of the more popular OD's yet so there are probably plenty out there that I'll enjoy more once I get around to them.
