EHX Crayon might do the job on the cheap, as well as the DOD Overdrive 250. So, if I were to put the Crayon in front of it, you think I'd retain the key characteristics of my amp's tone, still? Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Yeah, I'm checking the BB out now for reference. And if you literally just boost gain without cutting frequencies its gonna sound terrible. So I traded it for a boss blues driver and that's exactly what I was looking for. When I inquired about the availability of the Crayon, my friendly pedal pusher asked me "How do you know about that?!" Timmy is a great boost-med gain overdrive pedal you can get for $129 new.

I have a Neve 1073 and I plugged my guitar direct into it and from the demos i've seen on the Colour Box on Youtube, the Colour Box and the Crayon does a pretty good job at emulating the sound of direct in to a 1073. Looks like you're using new Reddit on an old browser. Thanks for the heads up on the hot tubes, as well. Personally i think the Soul Food sounds terrible once you put the gain up. Recently I was able to check out two of the most promising budget/modeling combo amps released in 2016. The new Crayon overdrive, EHX’s full-range OD, is a winner. I hear its an OCD clone, which might just be what I'm looking for, now I think about it, (and so, the rabbit hole of the pedal deepens....), If you want a ocd clone them get the joyo ultimate drive, so similar it's scary, read the reviews or check youtube, best of all it's only $30. I’m assuming the Crayon is so named because, like a big box of crayons, it can handle a variety of chores. It's is a low gain overdrive that adds 'color' to your sound. Soul food is better as a clean boost, just adding a little bit of sparkle at the signal and making it more hi-fi, while the Crayon is a better as a standalone OD or as a volume boost.

Might I suggest looking into the Hot Tubes as well from EHX? The Four knobs are a departure from most of their small drive pedals. There is no pedal I enjoy more than a dirt pedal. The SF is very mid heavy. I'm not totally liking what I'm hearing, its a bit too grunty for me in most demos. I've already hounded my local music store about getting one.
