Distortion is like a generic term for all the Dirt pedals. This can be Overdrive, Fuzz, Distortion or Metal. So this means Overdrive is a type of Distortion. In my opinion Overdrive is like the sound of a motorbike engine and Distortion sound like a chain saw cutting or slashing a metal object.
Here are some tips before getting your Dirt pedal
If you’re aiming for clean and warm over drive. I suggest get a good overdrive like Ibanez Ts9, Ibanez Ts808, Digitech Bad Monkey, Boss OD-3 or Boss SD-1.
of some dirt you may try Boss BD-2, Boss OS-2, or MXR Dist+
If you’re a fan of classic rock or Grunge you can get Boss Ds1, Boss Ds2, Digitech Hothead or a Vox Satchurator.
Lastly if you’re into metal you might try Boss MT-2, Boss MD-2, Boss ML-2, Digitech Metal Master or an MXR Dime Distortion.
Always remember each of them has its own characteristics and variety of sounds they will have a certain sweet spot when it comes to your choice of tone!
