Actually, the Xotic BB "Preamp", and all its clones, the Caline Orange Burst, the Mosky B Box, and the Joyo Zip Amp (which I have), are all just Tube Screamers with bass and treble controls.ooooh yeah! I am a mini pedal fiend.
I can probably provide more info than you'd ever want.
Below I will attach a picture of my current (mostly) mini and budget pedals.
Theres a couple others on my main board (not pictured) and I've tried a few others and returned or sold them (obviously no pics of those).
For overdrives The Dumbler is the best handsdown.
I like it better than the Silverhorse.
The D250x is the most transparent and the B Box is good if you want more of a preamp type thing.
The Stageright VS one works but, is really just better at being a distortion.
Yes, I have all of those, and then some.
For Fuzz (since you mentioned it) I like the Rowin one, but I think you would like the Kmise.
Its fuzzier. The Rowin one stacked with an overdrive makes a good Boss DS1 type of distortion.
Kmise is more like a Big Muff Op-Amp.
The Spring Reverb is good, I have two of them.
The Kmise Ultimate Drive is also a winner.
As you can see I've build a couple of the boards into tool boxes, and 3 of the 4 are battery powered.
The 4th could be powered by battery too but its just my leftover pedals, I dont even play that board.
I'm actually looking to sell those pedals off.
What kind of music do you play?
