    Uber Bee or black Amp 11 are my two go to pedals for rhythm dirt atm, into a Blackstar HT-100's clean channel. Klon KTR -> OD820 -> KoT has just become my main lead tone. And there's an always-on Forest Green at the front of the chain.

    Got a lot of other dirt options on the board, including a BE-OD, ZenDrive, Velvet Fuzz, SHOD and a TS clone. As this year has gone on, they've been getting less and less use. All really great pedals. Some hard decisions to make on whether to move them on at some point.

    I use them. Lovepedal, Barber, Fuchs and a few others. I love them with my Strat and find it a necessity. But with my LP's the best results are when I just plug straight into a decent amp with some overdrive on tap. The LP brings so much to the table on it's own already. The thing is I have a few Marshalls and an old Boogie for my crunch.

    If I'm using my 5150, no distortion box is required. Thru my JCM800, I swap back and forth between a vintage MXR Distortion + and a new Friedman BE-OD. That is a fantastic pedal and can easily go from Classic Rock tones to metal, if you want. :thumb:

    Check out the Tone City pedals. Awesome pedals that are reasonably priced.

    I used to use a Bad Monkey as a booster because of the 2 tone knobs. Then I got the DSL40c and just use the dirty channel.

    It's complicated
    I have a boss gt100 I like. But also some self made kit pedals. Overdrive, boost and a ts9 kit.
    I did have a few pedals bit due to health reasons it became difficult to lift and carry. Hence getting the gt100. They all sound good. But the guitar direct in to all still sounds best. I think
    As I said it's complicated
