    I just ordered an ENO Myomorpha RAT Clone which seems to be the same as a Mooer Black Secret (I think that's the name for their Rat clone))...can't wait.
    Joyo Deluxe Crunch is a 4 knobber Marshall Stack in a box...killer!
    Delta lab TO-1 built like a tank for about $20used
    Joyo Ultimate Drive = OCD
    Joyo vintage OD = Tubescreamer
    Joyo Plexi Tone = Plexi Crunch

    I am digging the Chinese OD & Distortion lately!

    The same Rat does all the work. You can get a new one for 75 bucks and easily find a used for 50.

    Not to beat it to death but Chicago Stompworks makes several killer pedals that can be had for around $50 on his eBay auctions.. Top quality stuff, real great service and killer prices.. If you don't mind scoping out eBay for a little while it's great option.. GC's web site is a great source for used pedals.. Not as easy to search now but if you dig in you can do well..

    Used SD-1 and $4 in parts will get you a Keeley spec pedal.
    Pretty tasty. It's my main dirt sound when I can't crank my Bassman head!

    Yes, the Eno Trouble (OCD clone) and Myomorpha (Rat clone), although they sound a bit different from one another, cover similar sonic territory. It is perhaps somewhat misleading that the Trouble is labeled an "overdrive" while the Myomorpha is designated a "distortion."

    I have both and agree. Excellent pedals and great for what you want. You may find the Sweet Baby makes its way onto your main board.

    I had forgotten about the Danelector Fab Distortion. Great Pedal. I would choose a Fab Distortion over a real Rad, Timmy, or Tube Screamer.

    I just bought a Caline Orange Burst for $40. Supposed to be Xotic BB clone. Waiting on the shipment.

    Another vote for the ubercheap Dano FAB distortion. Probably the best bang-for-the-buck dirt box EVER

    For a little more refinement get an EHX Soul Food, plenty cheap used

    Bad Monkey hands down. Killer pedal at 3x the price. I've bought and sold many expensive OD's over the years but the Bad Monkey remains my number 1 overdrive.

    I second the Screamin' Blues. Great pedal! I paid $20 and is my favorite drive pedal by far. Was looking into the Bad Monkey but found a TS9DX for cheap.

    I also have s Rat2, I paid $30 for.

    Many good bargain pedals that do an awesome job!

    Bad Monkey or patiently wait to find the Hardwire CM2 Overdrive used.
