    Schottky diodes in your guitar, activated by a switch. Bam. OD with no pedals.

        Only thing is that, being diode distortion it'll drop the output from your guitar a bit. If you want to get really fancy you could build in an onboard preamp to act as a signal booster. But why stop there?

          There are quite a few in the tiny Hammond enclosures... I may build a few sometime in the near future.

            this one could possibly fit in a thumb drive and not be SMD. Add a switch and run it like one of those vox amplugs.

            Speaking of which...
            look into Vox Amplugs.

              Could definitely fit this one in an altoids tin:

                Xotic and Mooer have some nice compact offerings.

                  I was thinking Xotic as well.

                      I just saw one of the Redwitch pedals recently. Those are very VERY small. Smaller than a 1590a. It's like the size of a matchbox or something, only thicker.

                          The smallest pedals are Hotone, but if they're too small for a 9V battery, it pretty much negates their usefulness.

                          My money would probably go to the EH Soul Food or MXR Classic OD.

                            Klon Centaur is nice. You can get a used one off of EBay.

                              There are lots of small ODs out there. Is there a particular type/sound you are looking for?
