    Is there a Dumble pedal like the Simble that is less than $100? I love this sound:



    But, $190 for an OD pedal is not in the budget right now. Is there an inexpensive alternative that gets close?

    If you can find one, the KO Amps KOI OD usually runs for ~$125.00 used when you can find one.
    They're out there, just gotta watch for them.
    I now have two of them I love 'em so much for their Zen tones.

    Don't be afraid of buying used I guess would be the mantra for your price range.

    Chuck Pedals Zen Like is $125. You might be able to find a used one for around $100

    I agree, From what I understand the CBC is an identical clone. I owned both the CBC and the zendrive and they sounded the same to me.

    I also used to own the CBC and it was a great sounding pedal.

    Thanks everyone. That CBC The Drive pedal looks like exactly what I had in mind.

    The Emporium is your friend.

    The Simble is my favorite of the Dumble-ish pedals I've tried, FWIW. (Zenkudo, Dumkudo, Euphoria)

    Another inexpensive alternative is the Hotone Grass. I got one and really like it!

    Check out the youtube clip where a guy compares it with the Zendrive.
