If variety is the spice of life, then distortion and overdrive pedals are certainly the spiciest category of effects pedals.

The variety of new distortion and overdrive pedals introduced each year far outnumbers that of any other stompbox category and perhaps even all the other categories combined, although most new overdrive and distortion pedals are usually variations on previous themes that offer little that is truly new.
