How did you end up with that many? Why do you use the ones that you still do?
Three: Zendrive, BB Preamp, and RC Booster
I use the Zen for lower gain, the BB for medium gain, and stack the two for sustainy leads. I use the RC as a volume booster to make leads stand out.
5 OD's. They're all used for something different.
AC, RC, BB, OCD.......as soon as my BB plus arrives in a few weeks I might be thinning this down!
ughh three right now which could be considered four Landgaff LDO, and Boost .. also a sunlion which is sunface/beano boost.. looking for another rhythem OD though.
1 usually gets the job done. I like the way amps sound. If I want a cleaner tone, I reach over and adjust the amp. I occasionally use a fuzz for over the top stuff, or a micro amp if I need to be louder.
Three. A tube screamer for my main distortion, a Fulltone OCD to kick the TS in the butt for leads, and a Blues Driver for a very very light overdrive for a couple songs that need it. Nothing out of the ordinary, really, but it gets the job done.
i use 3 'OD' pedals, really only 2 (the fuzz doesn't get much action); than i flavor them heavily with my TMB and Comp/wah. I'll almost always have 1 on (usually the light side of the TIM) and use the 808 to boost leads and for rythym stuff... the comp thickens stuff up for riffs/single note and the TMB drives the OD a little more for clarity (treble booster) and sometimes just for gain (modern/katana). But i'd like to get my hands on an OCD sometime in the future, my buddies got one and they kick a whole buch of butt.
None. Both my amps now give me the gain I need. In the past I had up to 3 plus a boost. I am happy not to have any, I prefer amp distortion for most things.
Currently only 2... Bad Monkey and Reezafratzitz. With a LPB-1 always on at the end of chain before the delay to give that breakup cleans...
1 - MP Sky Blue OD - This pedal because its real good. I go through pedals like crazy, so who knows what tomorrow will bring. But I do like my amp's dirt and I have a booster to push it when needed as well.
do you guys ever run into massive feedback problems at high gain settings?
I use a Crunch Box, I was thinking about getting a older RAT pedal for a boost on solo's, but I tried running the ZAKK OD pedal as a boost(kinda) just for Solo's and just got massive feedback?
Three: Analogman DS-1 for high gain, TS-808 RI for lower gain, and Analogman Silver-mod TS-9 for lower than that. The TS-808 cascaded into the TS-9 is my usual solo tone, though.
Actually since my zendrive is in the mail I'll pry swap out the TS-808 for that and then see what happens...
That's my cover band board.
On my original band board I've got a ZIM and a Peppermint Fuzz.
3 OD/Distortion pedals, a Skreddy Screwdriver>Keeley TS-9>Crunchbox. This is followed by 3 fuzzes, a double Monsterpiece and a Moho Muff. Before all of that is a BBE Freq Boost treble booster. I got a lot of variety here.
3 plus a boost.
Oh are we counting fuzz? Well, then put a Sunface in mine then.
Two, right now.
Landgraff custom voiced LDO
I use them both for the exact same thing.
I've got 2 OD/Distortions and 1 fuzz. MI Audio Blue Boy > Keeley RAT > Fender Blender
I have 3 ODs: Fulltone OCD v3, MI Audio Crunch Box + Tube Zone
...and 2 boosts: MI Audio Boost&Buff, EHV LPB-1
Five-Analogman Peppermint Fuzz, ZVex Super Duper 2in1 (I use one side cranked like an OD), Fulltone OCD, ZVex Box of Rock, and Fulltone Fulldrive 2. I like having wide ranges of light, medium, to heavy OD at my feet without having to bend over and adjust much. Three of these pedals have a boost side so there is almost limitless possibilities.
