If you're looking used, I would suggest the Digitech Hardwire SC-2 Valve Distortion. Does great Marshall-ish tones from low to higher gain and the separate Low and High EQ knobs are great. For $40 used, it has seen more time on my pedalboard than the usual big names (Fulltone, Wampler, etc).

Took Leftee all of 2 hrs, 45 min. Not his personal best, but not bad at all!

We have the Exotic SP Compressor on our church's pedalboard. It's surprisingly good.

"I just ordered one."

Glad I could help Leftee!

Now DrKev, still interested, or are you going to wait for a full and thorough review by Leftee? :^)

I'll see if I can review it later today. It should deliver today.

I still have a Pigtronix Fat Drive I scored on a SDotD a couple months ago that has gone unplayed. :-/

Maybe today is "play the new pedal day."

Yes, I am holding off 'till Leftee's review!

Also, I'm thinking of the Mooer Cruncher. a mini version of the Crunch Box. If I go Crunch Box it'll v2 or v3, though neither Crunch Box or the Cruncher are easy to find on the used market in France at the monent. I guess everybody holds on to them. :-)

With a pedalboard filled with those mini pedals, how does one stomp on them? Do y'all where pointy-toed cowboy boots.

This thing is pretty nice Marshall in a small box. You can get that older Plexi tone that's a little less gainy and darker up to the brighter higher gain metal panel tones.

I wish I still had my Crunch Box to compare. My memory tells me the CB is a little mo-betta. But that could be a lie.

I also tried my Pigtronix Fat Drive in front of this. It makes for very nice tube-screamerish overdriven Marshall tone in front of this pedal. I think I just bumped my Seymour Duncan Twin Tube off the board.

"I wish I still had my Crunch Box to compare. My memory tells me the CB is a little mo-betta. But that could be a lie."

It could be apples & oranges too though.
The SLD is very specifically voiced to the '59 Super Lead/Bass, where the CB is think is more broadly "British" voiced without specifically stating 'Marshall'.

As with all things tone, "betta" is in the ears of the beholder :^)

Glad you're happy with it overall though.

I’ll play with it some more tomorrow. Right now I have it set up in Super Bass mode. I went straight to that. I’ll try Super Lead tomorrow.
