    Hi guys!
    I'm essentially a blues type player w sonic vibes! ;)
    Currently playing a ton of variety in a cover band- Hendrix, U2, cure, Rush, Pearl Jam, Floyd...
    I've used a modded ts9 and it's great , but I really want to change my tone now to something cleaner, less buzzy...
    I like what I've seen w the JHS line.
    I run clean and then put effects on top.
    My plan is to get a Morning Glory for a crunchy rhythm tone. And I'd either stack on this for the lead tone or find a really good stand alone pedal.
    Does anyone have any suggestions? Or links to share? Thanks very much

    Check out the Chellee Odie. One of the most versatile pedals I've purchased in a long time. TS9 camp...but with a lot more flexibility. Also look into DCW Pedals (ZAZ is great, if you like the Dumble ODS thing).

    How about a Barber Direct drive?

    Does anyone like JHS?
    Superbolt?
    Angry Charlie?
    Twin 12?

    Try a Soul Food from EHX and just dial back the gain to be very slight, and use it as a boost specifically for leads. I was skeptical at first, based on the price, but it does this perfectly for me, very happily impressed.

    The MXR GT-OD works well for me when I need some crunchy rhythm tones.

    Definitely! It is my favorite pedal for leads through a totally clean amp
