Like everyone, I've tried a quadrillion dirt boxes.
They're all amazing for their own thing.
So, here's the challenge:
I simply want the coolest-looking overdrive. The coolest damn box there is. Any ideas?
I want something that even if it isn't the best pedal, I will always want to endlessly stomp on it and use it over the hundred others I've got, just because of how cool it looks and maybe even how awesome the name is.

Awesome name, but what's with the boring box? It could be so much more flamboyant.

I think the Fulltone OCD is classy looking. Its white, not a lot of pedals are that good looking. Zvex makes some sweet hand painted pedals, I think the box of rocks is the their overdrive pedal.

The Most Legendary Pedals were all Boring Metal Boxes.
Rangemaster, Maestro Fuzz Tone, Fuzz Face, and my
Treasured little Gem I've had for years but will never sell
the Baldwyn Burns - Buzzaround......I don't need a pedal
that " Looks Cool " its all about the Tone man, not a Pretty
Colored Box & Graphics as per today's Boutique Wannabe's

I understand that nice graphics have nothing to do with tone.
But, I mean the Fuzz Face is legendary and it looks awesome.
I think there are enough high quality boutique pedals out there that it's silly to get too worried about the subtle nuances from one to another - I'd rather judge them on a level that is anything but subtle.
They've all got personality, and I can make good sound with any of them, so I might as well just find the one that I think looks the damn coolest.
