    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.

    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.

    Oh are we counting fuzz? Well, then put a Sunface in mine then.

    Two, right now.
    :
    Landgraff custom voiced LDO
    &
    Lovepedal Eternity.

    I use them both for the exact same thing.

    Cheers,

    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.
