Building a new board!

Well, been meaning to for awhile, and now it's gonna happen! Building my first board in almost 10 years (been strictly a modeling guy) and am starting from scratch. Ordering a Trailer Trash board, and need some stuff to go on it. I'm. Hoping to get 2 recommendations to start:
1. A great tuner
2. Some great OD boxes with vintage vibe, low to med gain

Thanks!

Good pedal board choice!
Are you also going to be using a voodoo labs pedal power unit?

Tuner: I think the BOSS tuner suffices, some people spend more swiftness of accuracy too, such as the Korg blackout tuner or the TC electronics tuner. For me, most tuners $100+ are good enough.

OD: King of Tone [analogman], Timmy [Paul C], Screwdriver [Skreddy], Boiling Point [RockBox], Tube screamer [Ibanez] and Ecstacy [Wampler].... those overdrives are good choices.

Very good OD suggestions above. Here are a couple more:

Mojo Hand FX - Rook

CMATMODS - Signa Drive

all of them fall in the ''you can't go wrong'' category.

Yes. I' going to get a PP2+ and a PPDigital hard wired.

I already have a Tech 21 Blonde that I am going to use as an OD and/or as a preamp for the ability to go direct. Plus I have a HOF Reverb and a Fulldrive 2 from way back when.

Going to add a Timeline,Lex, MF101, SupraTrem, and Rainbow Machine for fx.

The ODs are what I haven't really decided on yet. I know I want at least 3 flavored for a Ronnie Wood chuck, a Warren Haynes buttery smooth lead, and a warm med gain lead. Not sure I am in love with the FD2 anymore, but am going to stick with it until I get the rest of the board up and running. Really want to start researching, demoing, and thinking at this point.
