The smallest pedalboards will have two or three pedals, and the one you’ll find almost everywhere is overdrive.

Overdrive pedals come in all shapes and sizes, and you will need to try out a few before you will be able to find the one you like. The choices are almost limitless, and the quality and sound of the pedal will mostly depend on the amount of money you’re willing to spend.

The only thing you need to worry about is whether the pedal is suitable for your taste and if the sound is something you like. Keep in mind that usually these pedals come without a battery, and if I wrote that it works on a 9V battery, it doesn’t mean that you’ll get one in the package.
