    Those “issues” are features.

    Yeah, I get it, but if you want slightly less mids, you can't get that with a single tone control.

    Doesn't look like mine has been mentioned yet. DigiTech Hardwire series CM2 Tube Overdrive. You can hear the Bad Monkey lineage, but the Hardwire's tone is a bit thicker, more mids and a little more bass. It also has a two position switch that increases gain and adds hair in the "modified" setting, so it's very flexible, takes you from light drive clear into grunge. I paired it with Hardwire's Valve Distortion "Marshall in a box" for a Jekyll and Hyde type setup, very happy with it.

    Only problem is my new Bassbreaker 30R has a pretty serious gain channel, so I find myself going to the footswitch instead of the green or orange boxes for gain. The boxes are still useful to push the amp or to create a different voicing than what the amp can do (very British mid-forward tone with those EL84s), I just need to sit down and figure out a gain structure that makes sense.

    BTW, a Bad Monkey can sound thicker if you use the 'mixer out' instead.

    I use the EHX East River Drive. It's more of a 808 style. It's tight and gives enough kick in the face for my Marshalls to get all brootz! Plus it's way cheaper than the Ibanez or maxons.

    I need to buy another ts style OD for my studio rig.....

    Has anyone tried the Joyo Baatsin? Looks like it has a TS mode - for only $58 you seem to get a few different models.
