A couple of months ago I bought a Vox AC15c2 (basically AC15 in an AC30 box with the 2 greenbacks and the larger reverb tank). I was in the dark about Vox amps before I got this and I'm really digging it a lot, but I'd like to find a good overdrive for it. The only dirt pedal I've had since getting back into playing a couple years ago has been a Boss SD-1. So that's my basic reference point. My friend brought over his Boss BD-2 Blues Driver and playing them back to back kind of soured me on the SD-1 into the Vox. The SD-1 has too much bass cut, not as much output or overdrive, and the midrange is so nasally compared to the BD-2. I really like the bigger bass response of the BD-2, how it's not nasally, and it can get straight nasty with the drive maxed out, but it also lacks something I can't put my finger on, maybe more lower mids? It's just not that chunky. Most people seem to recommend the Crowther Hot Cake and Proco Rat. In addition to those I've been looking at demos of the Xotic BB Preamp, EHX Crayon, MXR Distortion+/DOD 250, Fulltone Fulldrive 2 Mosfet, and some others. Youtube sound quality makes it hard to really tell the nuances and the nearest guitar store is an hour away so I don't want to haul this amp that far to play through some pedals. I know this has been covered in a bunch of threads (I've searched and read), but I'm curious about what everyone is using now or thinks might fit the bill? I mostly play my SG with Duncan Pearly Gates humbuckers through the top boost channel.
