    Hey guys,

    I'm looking or a Tube Screamer type overdrive in the size of a Smallbox Rat enclosure. Pedalboard real estate is limited. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    My ts-808 tube screamer is smaller than my small box rat.

    Tube screamers are already pretty pedal-board friendly. The only way they could be smaller is if Catalinbread started making tube screamer clones. Or if they were MXR sized.

    on that note, how about the MXR GT-OD?

    Thanks for the suggestion guys. What i meant was in length. I have a spot on my board that fits a smallbox rat just barely in length. I'd like a Tube screamer type of OD that will fit into this spot without having to rearrange my board.

    by length do you mean (direction) from knobs to switch?

    Or, better put, you to audience?

    haha...if you place a smallbox rat next to a tubescreamer, the tubescreamer is obviously encased in a longer box, the rat is much shorter then the tubescreamer. I need something the size of the rat, but not another rat.

    One of the small Danos would do the trick, or a guyatone.

    Cusack screamer is pretty small.

    Way Huge Green Rhino? If you can get a hold of one.....

    If you simply just want something smaller than an average tube screamer, another one you can look into is the MI Audio Blues Pro.
