    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.

    Way Huge Red Llama for me, transparent, fat, smooth and can get really crunchy on demand. It can also be stacked nicely with anyother dirt pedals.

    I have a TS-808, TS9DX and a Fulltone Fulldrive 2 MOSFET.
    The Fulltone is my favorite of those.

    Dying to they the OCD, but I have a TC Electronic Mojo Mojo and I like it a lot. It even replaced the TS9 on my pedalboard.

    home built TS808 from the cheapest parts possible gave me best results. if expandora gain/eq circuit is added on the switch... the more fun i have.
    I call it 'kindergarten', on the left.

    Blackstar HT-Dual. The only one able to sound good to my ears with my Fender AND my Vox AND my Marshall tube amps, not to mention my little Roland Cube...

    I've also an OCD (and a TS808 and a Big Muff and a Fuzz Face) but I simply prefer the HT.

    BB pre amp beat out the OCD on my board. Also the plimsoul, sd-1, od-1, carl martin plexitone, and bd-2. The BB has active bass and treble controls that the others don't have.

    Just fired up a mojo hand extra special to try to get the dumble sound without having to sell my house. The clip from chicago music exchange below sold me. Any experience here on this one?
