    So current Od/Distortion/Fuzz rig is:

    Timmy-->Emma Reeza-->Retroman Sybil Fuzz-->Mesa Boogie Rectoverb

    Looking for something different than what i already have obviously. Maybe something low to mid gain like in the Timmy range.

    Thinking:
    OCD
    Jetter Gain Stage Red/Black/Purple/Gold
    Eternity
    COT 50 Gold
    a TS-808/9 style pedal
    Menatone Foxy Brown / Red Snapper / Howie
    HAO Rumble Mod

    But also on a different front, maybe something like a Mayo or Top Fuel?
    HELP ME DECIDE FOLKS!!

    I have an OCD v1 going into a Timmy into a Goodsell Super17 and I'm happy with my tone so +1 for an OCD

    +1 on the OCD...I have a v.3 and it's great both as a low gain and high gain pedal. it's a very natural sounding pedal and super touch-sensitive. i have also had great results using it into a Timmy.

    I just got an OCD ver.4 about a week ago, so I'm still getting used to it. But the one I love the most (and I'll keep recommending this until the cows come, because it deserves all the props it can get) is my Throbak Overdrive Boost. From what you've described, it sounds like this would be right up your alley. Great for '75 to '83 Gilmour tones, '70's Beck and Page, treble boost/RC Booster-type tones, and it does excellent silicon Fuzz Face-type Doyle Bramhall stuff. Killer EQ and it makes a great clean boost. Super Versatile. Plus it does great hybrid fuzz sounds with the germanium switch turned on.
    I just ordered a Fuzz Haze a couple hours ago. Can't wait for that.

    Thanks for the head-up on the throbak

    I hear the OCD kills with Single coils, which i DONT use. How's it on HB's or thick sounding guitars?

    I think the OCD (v3) Sounds great with single coils as well as humbuckers. Its a great pedal.

    An OCD will still let a Tele sound like a tele and a LP sound like a LP. It was a love hate thing for me. Either too much bass or not enough of something else.

    How about a Liquid Sunshine? I think that would complement your other OD boxes quite well.

    Lets face it... the choices are unlimited! I've recently had good luck with the OCD and a Modded Boss SD-1 with H-buckers. If you haven't tried any of the TS style pedals you probably should at least try one. The SD-1 is similar. As far as an OD/clean boost I really like the Zoom PD-01.
