    Have only owned the Centaur and an OCD.

    Anybody remember the old ice cube distortion for the reverb circuit of a Twin Reverb? That was the first OD I ever had. The guy I bought the amp from threw it in for gratis. It's still lurking around here somewhere.

    I haven't owned many OD's but here are my faves:

    - WHE Green Rhino. The bang-for-buck champion of TS OD's, IMO.
    - TC Spark Boost. This can imitate a more polite Tube Screamer at higher gain settings. It kicked my Green Rhino off my main board only because it plays better with my fuzz.
    - Xotic SL Drive. I use this more as a high-gainer, but it sounds nice at lower settings.
    - EQD Dream Crusher at lower gain settings. It adds a nice bloom to tube amps.

    1. Kingsley Minstrel V1
    2. Fulltone Plimsoul

    These are the only two I've ever owned... The Plimsoul was a great pedal, but once I found the Minstrel I never looked back... or in any other direction for that matter.

    I forgot about my UK Guv'nor. Def one of the best around. Mine isn't on my board currently because I'm afraid of breaking it.
