    when using one: Marshall Guv' or Wampler modded Boss SD-2

    - VFE Scream (TS808) >
    - Keeley White Sands (Great light OD) >
    - Archer Ikon Gold (sold my Klon) >
    - Wampler Pexidrive Deluxe >
    - Wampler Euphoria (my main OD) >
    - Wampler Plextortion (when I need to jump to the 80s) >
    - Ibanez Sonic Distortion Mod (ugly disto)

    But I get my main OD sound from my D-Style amps. I just like playing with different OD sounds.

    The only dedicated dirt box I have is the Source Audio Kingmaker, which can act like two. I also have an H9 that can do dirt and a couple other pedals with boost and/or “grit” as a secondary capability.

    What does the BUSS give you that the Gain Changer and Burn Unit EQ don't? I have the GC and Burn Unit, which are great, but adding the BUSS seems like overkill. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    It could be overkill. :) I played for a lot of years with only the Burn Unit. I'm super good at turning the knobs with my toe while I play. But I love the BUSS for the Marshall sound of it all. I'm generally running the Gain Changer in low gain mode with knobs at noon, the Burn Unit with channel 1 drive at 9:00, and channel 2 drive at 3:00 with bumped volume for a lead sound. The BUSS is on the super sport side with high harmonics and drive at 9:00 is really nice through my HRD. It gives me a Marshall "ish" attitude, even with the gain relatively low.

    1: PoT, to be replaced with the KoT in a year or so

    Caveat: I also have an Analogman Mini Bi-Comp. The Juicer circuit is pretty effectively a boost when cranked and pushes the amps into nice gain. Then the Ross side is there for sustain and squish

    Colorsound Overdriver
    Jam Pedals Tube Dreamer 58

    (...but i play mostly Strat these days, so i think about building a bigger board and reintroduce my Fuzz Phrase...)

    All of the Klones I've had have had noticeably different EQ's ...only a couple of which I liked.

    Which did you get?

    Just 2 for now. I’m looking to pick up the new Barber BUSS to swap on and off in place of my Exacta based on my needs at the time

    I mostly use 2:

    EQD Palisades
    Teletronix Mulholland Drive MkIII

    If Fuzz counts I've been currently using a Way Huge Swollen Pickle a bit but admit I'm having some issues dialing it in to what I want.

    Depending I may switch out and/or add a TS10 or a T Rex Moller. Have a Soul Food but use the Mulholland more for the light OD duties.

    Had three for a while, but now I'm down to two, if you don't count the booster:

    Spark Booster (it counts, right?)
    TC Mojo Mojo
    Purple Plexi

    Arc Klone V2, picked it up used for a good price. I don’t see myself hunting for the ultimate Klone, if I like the flavor it’ll stay!
