    I have an OCDv.3 and a Timmy ( and a Boss SOD-1 if that counts ). I was looking for another distortion pedal along the lines of the OCD. Maybe a DDrive? Wampler Distortion? Suggestions?

    I will probably get slated but I love my Rat 2, If I'm playing heavier stuff it's my go to distortion. Either go for a Keeley modded which will give you more options or stay with a stock one. I have a stock Rat 2.

    For those recommending the Hermida Distortion do you actually own one? I have just seen very few rhythm clips (good number of clips with leads) and not many reviews as its still pretty new.

    The Barber Dirty Bomb looks to be a promising pedals, very tempted to take the plunge on this one.

    The MI audio Crunchbox often gets recommended for Marshally type distortion pedals. I have mixed feelings on mine.

    Yes.
    Eats CB (toy), but not as hair800ish. A BIG sound.
    See my review posted tonight.

    Barber Small Fry replaced my OCD v1. Very amp like & underrated IMO. Great infornt of either a clean amp or dirty. Flexible with (4?) internal trim pots.

    I love my Keeley modded TS-9 tube screamer, the Fulltone OCD is cool too.
    I've got a cool BMF Purple Nurple listed which serves as a high gain distortion pedal or a boost pedal when the gain is turned down.

    Landgraff DO. Be warned, it will make your other stuff seem like it has a blanket over it. Made me sell a lot of my pedals.
