    Name your top 2 pedals. Or, if you get your overdrive with your amp, name your amp and your top 2 pedals.

    Man, am I missing out by only using a Barber Direct Drive?

    There are alot of great pedals out there for classic rock tones! I like both the Fulltone OCD (new version) and the LovePedal Eternity for old school classic rock tones. These two work really well for me through my amps.

    Old Ibanez SD-9 rocks. I get my COT 50 in a day or two. Something tells me hat it`s gonna be a keeper, too. I very interested in the Eternity, too.

    Clean amp;

    AC Booster and MI Audio Crunch Box.

    Clean to scream. Anything else, use guitar volume knob.

    For classic rock, OCD and Eternity. My new BBOD can actually get some pretty good classic rock crunch with the drive up, but I think I'll be using it for a little less gain than that. I have a Dyna Red coming that may bump the OCD for that role.

    Have any of you compared the Eternity to the Barber Direct Drive or the Blackstone?

    Xotic BB Preamp & a Sparkledrive or TS-808 will do you for all kinds of classic rawkin'.

    If modulation is needed, then my choices are the BB Preamp & a Red Witch Deluxe Moon Phaser.

    I've been using my just my Stone Bender into my Overdrive Boost with my 18 watt at band practice lately. With a Strat or a Tele I stick with just the Overdrive Boost. When I use a Les Paul I turn down the gain on the Overdrive Boost and switch on the Stone Bender. The Overdrive Boost has all of the tone control that I want and the Stone Bender adds a great classic rock bite to a Les Paul. Nothing says classic rock better than transistor based pedals. You can get a very organic full spectrum sound with transistors.
