    Anything Tuberscreamer-ish will do the job for ya. Try anything out in the TS family.

    The normal channel has no bright cap so if you want to leave the amp stock but use pedals at low volumes, use that channel. No reverb though. I don't find mine fizzy at all on the vibrato channel but I have a jensen P12Q alnico and I leave the volume around 3.5

    clip the bright cap and buy a FD2 mosfet...if you want more agressiveness than that buy an Eternity. I think the FDII is a simply stunning pedal and value but I won't agree that it doesn't color your tone...it's a TS type pedal and so has a hump in the mids and bass loss (small)...even in flat mids mode it changes the sound...but to my mind you want more mids than a fender natually gives for an OD sound anyhow so this is a good thing, not a bad thing.

    I used a '72 Deluxe Reverb for over a year, I loved my Barber Direct Drive with it.

    DRRI with a Cannabis Rex, NOS tubes here. Have not clipped the bright cap. Seems to love the Fulldrive 2. Even better if turned up to 5 or 6 (consider using a Hot Plate or similar).

    Well, my FD2 should be here any day now. Might have to run out and pick-up some new tubes though. I have one Tungsol 12AX7 kicking around but I'll get a few more and see what happens.

    Problem solved. Just got my Fulltone FD2 in the mail. It's the one before the current Mosfet model. It's sounds absolutely amazing. No fizz, no ear piercing highs, just perfect. I'm gonna stick with my FD2 and OCD.
