This guy right here ^
It MSRP's for around $230, sells for $130 and I got it for $40 in my local music shop.
The boost: it's really amazing. It's a great boost, and adds up to 20dbs. That's a lot of dbs just hangin' around on tap. Great clean boost, but adds a little dirt on higher volumes.
The overdrive: When I got it, I was **bleep** off. It sounded sterile, raspy and pretty much unusable, and for a pedal of this pedigree, it was unacceptable. I tried it on a friends Marshall and it really shines boosting up an already slightly overdriven sound. I play through a twin reverb. Not much OD going on there. I wouldn't use this as a standalone OD. I'm still on the lookout for one of those, but if you can find it for cheap, buy it.

dayum, for $40 its well worht it for the line driver/boost side alone! plus a mediocre OD on the side. i had the standalone boost and its my favorite clean boost evar. heard bad things about teh overdrive side but im sure its not that bad. MXR with CAE makes great stuff
