    Hi,

    I have a Fender Twin Amp and already have a Xotic BB preamp which sounds good with it. I was thinking to add another true bypass OD pedal for complement the Xotic or have other sounds. I was thinking of these ones:

    - Homebrew Electronics Bid D
    - Barber direct drive OD
    - Jetter jetdrive OD

    Which one would sound best for blues/rock (no metal) sounds with the Twin?

    Thank you!

    Fulltone FD2. I have a silverface twin and this combo sounds great.

    Anything in the Menatone line will work brilliantly, I'd recommend the Shut Up And Drive for it's versatility.

    You need a pedal with some extra mids with that amp, I think!
    Haven't tried the Jetdrive, but my GSR sounds great through the modded blackface channel of my tweed amp. Not so great with the tweed channel.
    But I bet the Jetdrive sounds great too!

    Or the Fuchs Plush Cream sounds great too!

    I would have thought the BB Preamp would be to scooped in the mids for a twin....

    I also have heard the Emma Stinkbug through a twin. That sounded incredible!
