    I have always been a big fan of ODs that have a boost side to them, like the FD2 and my custom MJM BD with boost.

    I wanted to see if the TGP members could put their heads together to come up with a list of all (or most) of the ODS with two sides (boost, or just a seperate channel all together)..here's what I can come up with off the top of my head:

    Analogman KOT
    Timmy
    FD2
    Barber Burn Unit
    Barber Tone Pump

    I know that I am missing a ton, little help :confused:

    Hey Troy, how are you?
    ZIM would be the ultimate: 2 boosts, 2 od's or any combination thereof, in any order you want.

    Banzai Fireball
    Lovepedal Tchula
    Hermida Zen/Mos 2 in 1.

    Ah, the Pedal Guru himself... :dude

    I'm doing well, thank you for the reply. Anything new with you?

    How does the Banzai Fireball compare with the Cold Fusion? I've owned the CF in the past, but never had chance to try the Fireball...

    Diamond makes a great OD and Boost in one box. I think it's called the J Drive

    I wish...2 kids, and 4 grey hairs - that's enough new stuff. :)

    The Fireball is like the Fulldrive II and original Tone Pump, an overdrive and boost.

    Kinda, except that its not really a "drive" pedal...its a kick ass pedal though, either way.

    I like the Box of Rock's boost since you can use it without engaging the overdrive, whereas, the way that I understand the FD2, you can't.

    Carl Martin Hot Drive n Boost.

    Best 'clean' boost I've tried.

    Well a lot of the newer Menatones have a boost feature - Working Man's Blue, TBIAC, KOTB, VOS, etc. I also just got a BB+, so I'd have to mention the BB+ and AC+.

    I completely forgot about the Menatone stuff, thanks for mentioning that!

    I am getting the itch to try the Analogman KOT. Figures that you have to drop four bills on something to test it out...it will be hard for me to shell out that much cash for a trial run.

    I'm not as loose with my money when it comes to pedals anymore...but maybe I can make an exception.

    I've never tried the Menatone KOTB (which I'm dying too), but the Throbak Overdrive Boost has the best clean/dirty boost I've heard. I've got the two parts of a Sunlion, but I have'nt had much time with it in that capacity.
