I have a Joyo British Sound and now a Mooer Blues Crab. Might continue to collect them. What are your favourites?

- Joyo American Sound for light OD, though it can do everything from clean to medium distortion, light overdrive is what it does best though, in my opinion
- Joyo Orange Juice for heavy OD, also does everything from clean to medium distortion
- Joyo California for heavy distortion, this too can go from clean to heavy distortion, though in my opinion it doesn't do light overdrive well
- Behringer GDI21 for a wide variety of different medium overdrive to medium distortion tones, though it does a few light overdrive and quite heavy distortion tones too.

Edit!:
Update after actually having tried out the pedals mentioned in the context of setting up my new guitar effects chain: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?posts/27634443/

Mooer Blues Mood is a particularly good and improved Blues Driver.
Joyo Sweet Baby is wonderful, too.

How's the Joyo Ultimate Drive? I heard youtube clips and imo it sounds almost identical to an OCD.

Caline Orange Burst is a great pedal.
Never tried a Klone but I like the Mosky Silver Horse for certain things.

Sound is pretty close to an OCD. Great pedal. Picked mine up for 35, and came to the realization that I don’t like the OCD sound that much. But I pull it out every once in awhile for recording. Fantastic pedal.

The Silver Horse and Deluxe Preamp from Mosky have been my best boost/overdrive purchases for 2028.

I like it. I haven't got an OCD currently to compare it to, but it is cool in it's own right regardless of how well (or not well) it stacks up against the real deal. I am not a high gain type of guy, so I keep the gain at modest levels. It's also VERY cool set almost clean, driving into the Blues Crab (maybe my favorite use of it).

Any of these brands have a mini pedal that can sound like cranked bassman?

It seems there are two versions of it, one that nails it and one that doesn't. I guess I picked up the one that doesn't because it didn't sound nearly as refined as my 1.7. All I can say about the Joyo UD is this: it's very useable on bass.

The Eno Trouble pedal. Sounds great. I bought it cheap and learned it was a clone of an OCD. It's perfect as a low gain boost with my Hot Rod Deluxe. With the Marshall, less so.

Oddly, when the OCD first came out, I didn't like it. Go figure. I'll check out the latest version next time I'm at the store.
