    OCD. :thumb: Good as a booster or stand-alone overdrive. Great dynamics and harmonically RICH (like they start coming out as chords ring. It's insane). How much more could you want?

    The best one I,ve got is the "DUMKUDO" by Tanabe. It has three channels Marshall, Dumkudo and Dumble and works really well with other gear.

    I like my Dirty Little Secret. Sounds like my Marshall plexi cranked.

    I love my General Guitar Gadget's TS 808 clone with mods. Then comes my TS-9 with Kelley mod and last is my Aria OD-10 with my own mod.
    I use my TS-9 as a boost and the others as OD's.
    The GGG TS 808 is the best of all so I build two, one is for my son.

    Yet to find anything better than the Xotic BB! Fat and full. Clips I hear of it next to the OCD make.it sound nasal but in person it sound full. The OCD to me is way to flabby in the lows.

    Other goods are.the Lovepedal Kalamazoo and Fulltone Plimsoul. Also MXR GT OD.

    I only use OD pedals to add some grit.to clean and sometimes keep it on when I change to my gain xhannel.

    Might try the Lovepedal Amp50, MXR Microamp, EH LPB-1, Xotic EP and Tonefreak Naked.

    I love the Boss Blues Driver.

    It will rock the hell out, but can clean up with just adjusting your picking action.

    My favorite is the Wampler Paisley Drive. But my favorite circuit type is the 808 Tubescreamer. The Paisley is roughly based on the TS circuit with a lot of tweaks.

    Other: Subdecay Liquid Sunshine. I'll probably never need another OD pedal, but what does "need" have to do with GAS? :D Sounds amazing into my AC15.

    Speaking of GAS, I really want to try the BJF Little Green Wonder. YT clips are very promising!

    I also have a Way Huge Pork Loin - twice the number of knobs, half the tone. I've not given up on it yet though, just need to find the right place for it. And it looks great!

    I picked up a beano boost a few months ago before i came out on another ship, so i havent had much chance to play with it, but i can say this much....
    1. It sounds amazing. Very raw and open. An "honest" pedal, if i may.
    2. Don't make any mistakes with that thing up past 2:00. You'll hear 'em.
