    Hey Shiva owners, as we all know the shiva dirty channel can be pretty picky when it comes to boost/overdrive units. Alot just drop the bass out completely, are add this unmusical midrange.

    Traditionally, I like setting my shiva to around plexi crunch (think Ac/DC) around 12:30-1:00 on the gain. There are times when I need that extra gain, and instead of having to constantly tweak the gain knob and dial back the volume knob I'm hoping there is a good boost pedal/gain pedal out there that can get it to "heavy" territory

    The amp can get there on it's own, but alot of gigs I do (Alot of solo pop artists) I'll need something crunchy and something really heavy (think dual rectifier, modern rock) all within the same song.

    Any suggestions?

    I've tried: BB preamp, Timmy, AC Booster

    Barber silver LTD works great with the Shiva, imo.
