I've tried the MXR GT-OD. It had a nice sound but after a few minutes my ears started to ache from the piercing, edgy, artificial distortion. Moreover it wasn't true bypass and though it sounded nice when on, when off my guitar's tone went down the drain. I tried the Digitech Hardwire CM-2 Tube Overdrive which I liked. Nice distortion and true bypass. But I'm concerned about it's big footprint (and weight), shiny, not clearly visible knobs and reliability issues (knobs mainly). I did like a lot the only TC Electronic pedal I've owned, the Flashback delay. Awsome switchable buffer, superb construction (you can't dent the paint while in MXR pedals the paint falls of almost by itself), small footprint and great audio quality. Does TC Electronic have a TS style pedal? Could you suggest any other TS-style pedals with true bypass, more drive than the original TS and nice overall quality, under 150euros?
