    To be honest, it's my amp. :D

    My two fave OD pedals:

    1980's Tube Driver

    Zen Drive

    They both sound incredible.

    Xotic Effects BB Preamp.

    It took the place of my trusty Boss SD-1. I can't really say enough good things about the BB Preamp - super smooth and creamy goodness. I like. :applause:

    REALLY TOUGH to name my #1 - I want to say Tim/Timmy but I use it alot at the end of my chain to be an overall shape of my sound, such an awesome tool if you understand it. Rockett Blue Note is my answer otherwise. I am shocked its not mentioned more, Barber Gain Changer is new for me and is amazing as well.

    The ideal solution, of course, is to have 4+ delays and reverbs AS WELL as 5+ drive/fuzz pedals :D

    for the past 28 years it has been a Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive pedal, although of late I am also using the overdrive channel on my Bugera V22 and V55

    It depends on the guitar, day, and weather. At the moment:

    Gibson LP Studio: Lumpy's Jelly Roll
    G&L S-500: Skreddy Screw Driver
    Ibanez Artcore semi: VFE Blues King
    Fernandez Native (P-90s): CEP FET Dream
    Fender Toronado (slide): Wampler Tweed '57

    wylde overdrive (zakk wyldes signature pedal) by MXR, i play thru a 6505+ so its not exactly needed...... but i kick it on to get extra extra hot harmonics + volume boost

    its actually a KICKASS pedal for blues on the clean channel with just a bit of drive added , low volume and 1/4 tone

    doesn't that one also have the switch in the enclosure to basically turn it into a gt-OD? the gt-od is supposed to be a great tube-screamer pedal.

    It's got to be my new Wampler Blackface 65'... brilliant pedal. It can do nice transparent OD all the way to some nice creamy fuzz. Very versatile and very awesome.

    I am almost afraid to suggest this, because I would not have thought it would be good, but it is. Some of you should try the Digitech iStomp with some of its overdrive models. It's very impressive and it doesn't have any fizzy sounds at all.

    1) Jam Pedals Tube Dreamer 88!

    Simply the best OD i´ve ever had. Most transparent, organic, dynamic, warm, greatest string definition, unmatched clarity, smooth etc etc it has everything!!! Left side (TD58) is a TS808 clone with a selected vintage 4558D chip and an extra gain switch. Right side (TD72) is an OD with a secret chip which is much more transparent and with out the mid boost of the TS808/4558D. It´s the most transparent and natural sounding OD ever! You can her 1/1 the soul of the guitar and the amp! It has something magical on it! Its just a dream!

    JAM pedals - handmade analog pedals - TubeDreamer

    2) AnalogMan King Of Tone!

    My absolute favorite till i´ve got the Tube Dreamer. Each one has it´s own character. Both are just awesome. The KOT it´s a Bluesbraker in a Box.

    3) Ibanez TS808HW!

    Beats the vintage and reissue Tubescreamer by far! Two resistors are changed in compare to the stock one. I dont know if that´s the only reason but the HW has a "3D" deep tone, is smoother and warmer and sounds more organic than the old ones. I just love that thing.

    Those three are the top of the line of OD´s to me. I have a big collection of OD´s but i dont use anymore the other ones since my ears got spoiled of those trhee:)

    This week, I'm digging my Hardwire CM-2. Last week, it was the OCD. My tastes seem to be always changing. That's why it's nice to have different flavors of dirt on hand! :D
