    On the search for a real good one. Preferably in a smaller size - like Mxr sized if possible.

    I use a Catelinbread Dirty little secret for all my Marshall tones, the Crunchbox is a good one too, I have them both.

    DLS III is good
    The new Plexi Drive Deluxe from Wampler should be good too. ;)

    It's not MXR size, but Weehbo JCM drive is excellent.

    You know, it was his demo video that convinced me to try the original CrunchBox, and I still have that pedal today, love it!

    You can modify the ubiquitous Boss DS-1 and coax some JCM / Mesa Boogie high gain tones out of it.

    Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret is the most convincing one I've heard. I keep one on my board for when I can't use my Marshalls.

    The Crunch Box is the closest thing I've tried to my JCM 800.

    JHS Angry Charlie got me close to a hot-rodded JCM 800.
