    Ok. I know there have been variations on this thread before, but here's the scenario with a twist:

    You find yourself stranded on a desert island, and to your astonishment, you have access to an unlimited array of electric guitars and tube amplifiers. Anything you want--any make, model or year--is yours for the asking. But there's one catch. None of the amps will clip. No matter what you do, or how loud you play, everything comes out perfectly clean.

    You are given the choice of ONE and only ONE overdrive/distortion pedal to use with all this gear until the day you die.

    What'll it be?

    Lovepedal BBB07. Everything from fuzz to Rangemaster. The ultimate black box.

    Probably my Barber Burn Unit EQ. Every time I try or buy something new, it usually ends up in my drawer. I keep coming back to this one. My guess is it's a keeper.

    The L'DO clone I recently built. Covers a lot of ground and sounds fantastic!

    Landgraff OD: Switch up= crunch. Switch down= tube screamer. Switch in the middle= clean boost. That covers a lot of ground.

    That'd be tough.

    I'd proabably say my Burst E. I am so in love with that pedal

    Probably my Lovepedal Roadhouse Eternity, though I had brown and red Lovepedal Dragons that certainly had a 101 good uses...
