I'll try to push you over the edge here: get an OCD. You won't regret it. Best 120 bucks I've ever spent. I push the front of my Bandit 112, and with the "classic" voice, the growl is so classic Marshall that I doubt someone could tell otherwise if blindfolded. I don't like it as my sole source of dirt on a squeaky clean channel, but stacking it with preamp gain is what makes this pedal shine. Come to think of it, I'd love to find out what happens if you push a Vox AC10 with an OCD. I'll bet it sounds absolutely heavenly.
