    BD-2 if your setup doesn't have scooped mids or if you don't want a mid boost. Some sort of tube screamer if it does or you do want a mid boost.

    My BD-2 is generally always-on for blues or rock, with the gain set to about 10 o'clock for a slight crunch. This works very well for my apartment-friendly amp settings.

    Pair a J Rockett Archer with a tweed circuit, and magic appears. Great for blues.

    The least expensive one available on reverb right now is $4500. I’ve used my special mind reading powers to know that’s not what the OP had in mind.

    so that makes for bad blues tone?

    if you think that, you need a reality check on mind reading ability.

    I have had this box a long time, and did not pay anything close to that.
    My comments are about tone.
    Not value judgement.

    I don’t know why I’m giving you oxygen, but the OP didn’t ask what sounds nice, he asked about buying something.

    “Quote “
    “wanting an OD that doesn’t take to much away from the natural sound of the amp.”

    exacty the what the klon does…

    best go reread what the op actually wrote mind reader!

    Get yourself a Wampler Tumnus and call it a day. Spoiler alert just fast forward to the end..Tumnus beat out a Klon in blind fold test because it sounds almost identical and cost $200.

    I think you're making the right choice if that's what you are aiming for, especially since you've owned one before.
