    And as you can see by the photo, I was trying my own test of potential new SNS double pedals.

    1) Combine the SS SRV with the 4 knob Deluxe to mimic the newest BoA. Kind of fun combo of different overdrives. Interesting hearing the effect of one on the other in both possible directions. I like both pedals, but rarely use them. This combo could easily make for a useful light-mid OD in a loop switcher system. I’d probably use the BoA version more than each individual.

    2). Zen-Zen: Both versions are loads of fun, especially with low output pickups. I never think to use two Zens at once. But this whole double Zen thing is eye opening. I know that Sean suggested the white, but I’m torn. Both are really, really cool. So many combinations I each direction, with one high gain and one low, with each mid gain, etc. Neither jumped out to me as the obvious winning combo. Hmmm..

    Can it be used after a couple buffered pedals? Or, does it need to be 1st in line like a fuzz face?

    Please recommend me a Lovepedal overdrive. I play Fender-type guitars into Marshalls and like to stack fuzz with amp dirt. Lately I've been curious about the Bluesbreaker-type ods, you know "transparent" like POT and Keeley Super Phat Mod. Is there a similar Lovepedal?

    Not a Bluesbreaker, but yeah... This ^
    Works great with Marshalls.

    @Lauri Vennonen, to you and anyone who hasn't tried an OD11/COT50/AMP11 -- do yourself a favor and grab a BBB AMP11. They were $150 during an SNS back in March when I got mine, now they're going for $125 :aok
    Such a sweet sounding pedal + it's well known that black pedals are better than pedals of other colors.
    Curious to try the black COT50 I missed. I really like my White Foldy. Maybe there will be more...
    Oh and BTW, the Phat Mod is a BD-2.

    Just about the only thing I would change about my all-white Amp11 would be to have it be all-black.

    Does anybody know if the White Tchula has been on an SNS sale and at what price?

    What's the official title? "High priestess of Lovepedalia" or something like that? Certainly would stand out on a resume. ;)

    People,

    I have a 5E3 Deluxe AND a HPTT. Explain to me why I do or don’t need the Mini Les Lius...

    I can't explain why you don't need all 3, besides that's against the rules here.

    I can say I've owned all 3 and preferred the 5E3. I had the HPTT and 5E3 at the same time and preferred the 5E3. I had the 5E3 and the mini Les Lius at the same time and preferred the 5E3. Without making a direct comparison though I felt the mini-Les Lius was similar to the HPTT. I also thought it was harsher, lacked some of the smoothness of the original Les Lius.

    Well, secretly, that's all of us. A higher distinction is required for our fearless leader. ;)

    Princetone up and a bunch of others gone.
    That Princetone pedal is a thing of beauty and seriously tempted.

    No secrets around here in my experience.
