I have lots of great pedals, Hermida Zendrive2 Plum Crazy Fuzzy Lady Red WitchPentaVocal Tremolo Empress Para Eq TC HoF and more, more. BUT, I have an amp that sounds stellar on its own for blues. I have a Fender SuperSonic 60 and it has wonderful CASCADING gains that will kill any od pedal because the "pedal" is the 2nd gain in the cascade. (or is it the 1st?) My Zendrive cannot sound better than the amp, it can offer a more chirpier attack that is the trademark Robben chirp, but the amp gets it too. This would mean that if I don't need an od to get blistering paint peeling tone then I don't need any pedals going into the front of the amp. All my pedals, if needed can go through my effects loop, but I don't need them. Except my lonely 1++ BBE wah that will pump the preamp. What is your blues setup???
