    I'm using what (I think) is a Fender clone amp.
    I'm looking for kinda Russian Circles-ish tone.
    I'm currently using an MXR Distortion III.
    So tell me, will I like the Crunch Box, and was $108 a good price?

    Around $100 is normal price.
    If you like the distortion flavour of a Marshall JCM800, JCM900 and Plexi you will luv the Crunchbox. It's THE best Marshall in a box pedal ever made IMHO. If you're not into this flavour of distortion don't get a CB.

    for $100 it's worth owning. it's rarely on my board, but there are times when i need "that" sound. i can get close with stacking other drives, but the cb does it a bit more directly.

    I use a Carr Rambler, which is real Fendery.

    I've had the CB for a few months, and I'm just not feeling it. I'm probably going to get rid of it. It's just not me.

    There is a lot of love for that pedal though. I think you make like it better than your MXR.

    for that type of 'gainy' sound I think a rat will suffice.
