Honestly,I prefer neither of the two companies. I would look to smalled companies or companies that aren't as mainstream as DOD and BOSS, such as Rocktron.. they have some great stuff out, at the time I just use my amps overdrive which covers a fine range...You might be better off buying a nice amp and having that flexibility, instead of the limitations of those little pedals, with often artificial sounding tone...But amps are expensive huh?
But if i HAD to pick dod or boss I would go with boss, the dod junk i own broke down after like 3 years and all of my boss pedals are still working perfectly
DOD sound ok but are extremely noisy. boss sound good and are much quieter than dod in my opinion.
