First off, I know there is no such thing. As my great rig pare down of 19 comes to an end I am down to one pedal. I realized after playing today that my amp does 99% of what I need. I can control it with my eq and volume knob. So I set it up for a chimey crunch. Dig in and switch on the ts for gain. So what I realized today is I don't want an overdrive or distortion per say. I want a pedal that gives me the amp but more. Just a non middy overdrive/dirty boost. Here are the contenders: 1. Mesa Tone Burst 2. Xotic RC V2 3. DOD Looking Glass I don't know much about these type of pedals but realized today after listening this is what I have been after. My drive section is comp=>mini tubescreamer=>? So I guess my question, which has probably been covered ad nauseum, is what do you like? Not a Timmy fan. However, I am after a pedal, I think, that needs to do more than just a clean boost. I need some EQ and gain. So I may have to give one a whirl again. I am having trouble finding things that work with an overdriven amp. I want to add clarity and punch and chime, but be able to add some gain if I want it. I have tried a few with negative results.
