Spend a little extra and get the EL8X. I find it really expands the creative use of the unit. I recently bought a second Distressor (EL8X) and got my older one upgraded to the EL8X spec.

Like RCM said, spend the extra money and get the brittish mode. That is if you like the 1176 sound. I have a set of EL-8S-x and use them on drums and electric guitar. I guess it depends what you want to use that extra aggressive british mode for.
