    im looking for another TS style overdrive, one that retains the guitar/amp tone; like a pedal is not even on. also which is fatter and has more bass response. what are some natural-sounding ODs?

    i had these in mind:

    BJF LGW
    KLON
    Timmy
    Landy
    Maxon OD-9 silver mod

    Dude... seriously... try the T Rex Alberta... it is exactly what you describe. It is a semi-clone of the 808... I tell you what, that thing is nice!

    You'll not hear anyone mention htis pedal on this forum most likely... not Boutique enough I reckon. You can find clips on the internet easily.

    LGW with the tone knob fully CCW gives a sweet clean boost for sure. But If it's transparency that you are looking for I'd say the TIM or TIMMY for sure. Klon is also nice for pure clean boost. I don't think you could go wrong with any of the pedals listed. But they will each have their own thing going on.

    Klon and Blues Pro are the best at this, out of what I've personally used. Both are absolute keepers. Blues Pro is way more the TS style pedal, but the Klon is something special.

    I would expect the Tim and Timmy to be the bees knees for that too.

    klon or timmy, the LGW definitely has a midboost.

    TIM is probably the one for you, or the Landy.

    The Klon cuts bass

    Somehow I feel it's going to be the LGW :D



    (but based on the description of what you're looking for I don't think it's gonna get you there)

    Good choice :BEER


    the LGW has a Body control that is an interesting EQ, and also when its CCWise the bottom boosting also increases the complexity of the drive - so by dancing the drive and body knobs you can dial in may tasty tones....... and the nice headroom with appropriate cieling effect and low compression can be set to feel very amplike....

    I think specifically the combination of EQ and compression is what feels the most ampish - it keeps your pick connected to the speaker better ... and its t he only BJF that you can change t he chip to your needs, it CAN be made to be pretty dirty or pretty clean depending..... it can also be pretty complimentary with the timmy but they have a different base EQ and distortion complexity , so they wouldnt so much replace each other
