    Thanks man!

    I tend to agree. Even though I selfishly tossed up a clip of mine to pimp the distortion pedal into a plexi thing, I should mention I've since sold off the Bogner Red and switched back to getting lead tones from the amps themselves, only using a clean boost here and there for different juicing flavors. If volume is not much of an issue, then it's pretty tough to beat getting the majority of your gain/saturation from the amp vs a pedal.

    I have been meaning to pick one of those up.
    they're pretty inexpensive, and I have heard nothing but good things about it.

    I've tried several OD/Distortion pedals and the Bad Monkey is the only one that has stuck......so far. I use mine primarily as a boost and it works great.

    BEST OD and I've tried most: Mojo Hand FX "Rook".
    Will blow a Bad Monkey away.
    Another good one: Z Vex Distortron.

    Tried one of those too......Not a fan.

    I fell victim to the SHO hype as well, complete trash....Anyone wanna buy it?... 50 bucks.
