    I just got a rawkworks light od and I have a big muff pi with tone wicker. I want something to go in between. I have a ts9 (which I like a lot) but it doesn't have enough gain on tap for what I need. I had an sd1, which had enough gain for me, but it broke. I could get a new sd1, but that's no fun and I'd like something a little more versatile.

    I like tubescreamers. I play indie rock stuff and experimental electronic stuff. And I'd like to spend less than $100. Ideas?

    So far I've been thinking about a rat, mxr77, or a modded ts9/sd1.

    Did you try stacking the light od with the tubescreamer?

    Yeah, stacking the ts9 and light od still didn't get me where I wanted.

    What are the differences between the rats?

    get a US LM308 Rat2 model for that med gain sound. the new Chinese ones are voiced better for more modern, higher gain sounds imo.

    Just find a Rat with an LM308 chip. That's what you're looking for in a rat.

    MXR Super Badass Distortion can do a wide range of drive tones.
