I recently rediscovered my old Danelectro Daddy-O overdrive, which it turns out is a Guv'nor clone with input and output buffers. It sounds amazing and I've really been enjoying dialing in vintage style marshall tones with it. But it's too big and heavy for my current pedalboard. <br /> <br /> Anyone have good experiences with good Marshall-esque pedals with a smallish footprint and light on the wallet rather than wallet-lightening?<br /> <br />

If it's a Plexi-like tone you're after, check out the MI Audio Crunch Box. It's small.<br /> <br /> New, it's $100+. Used, quite a bit less.

The Crunchbox is the one pedal I regret selling. It is all that. <br /> <br /> Edited to add...<br /> <br /> I love Marshall tone. A lot. I miss my Crunchbox.

Love my Crunch Box. <br /> <br /> Also my Carl Martin Plexi-Tone.<br /> <br /> I plug them into my Rivera 5512 and it's almost too much tone.

Where does one purchase a CB from now? They don't seem to be carried by the usual sources. Specifically places that have a return policy.

I've had a Crunchbox for a few years and have recently put it back on my pedalboard. Don't use it much though as I also have a Bogner ecstasy blue pedal that I mainly use for plexi sounds.

The Fulltone Plimsoul will get you there.

DrKev, as you stated, there are a bunch of different versions.<br /> <br /> FYI, this seems to be the most recent version if you are shopping for a new one.

Yeah, I saw that, thanks pombrio. Seems there are three versions of the 1st one.

If you're looking for a budget version , Mooer do a "Cruncher" for £54. There's one on eBay now for £24

You could of course just scour the bay for a 80's Guv'nor.<br /> <br /> Plenty of them were sold.<br /> <br /> Coincidentally Johan Segeborn covered the Guv a few days ago :

The Guv'nor is a fine pedal. But it's big. <br /> <br /> DrKev wants something smallish and light in weight for his pedal board.

Why do you want it?<br /> <br /> A one hour history of Marshall.

See 1st post, and I'm not buying a new amp. I don't want a big Guv'nor because I already have a big Daddy-O. Must be smaller than either.<br /> <br /> I LOVE Johan Segeborn's channel. It's not that I'm big classic marhsall fan, but it's the whole...<br /> <br /> [swedish accent on]<br /> Hi. Today, we are going to play 3 different guitars into 25 different marshall amp heads, all cranked all the way up, into one cabinet so we can hear the difference between the models, if any. Ok? Here we go.<br /> [swedish accent off]<br /> <br /> Cue 25 minutes of ear-protector-required riffage. It's effing glorious, or reeeeeeeaaaaaly boring depending on your mood and his tuning.<br /> <br /> But that''s why I love it.<br />

+1 Crunchbox. <br /> Simple & effective: Vol, Tone, Gain.

Another Marshall-in-a-box option is the Xotic SL Drive.<br /> If pedalboard real estate is one of the issue, the SL Drive is micro pedal size.<br /> <br /> I've owned both the Super Crunch Box and the SL Drive. They were both very good, I just eventually arrived at the conclusion that I'm not a Marshall guy.

Excellent suggestion. Thanks Mick!
