    I've got a BBD and a silver ltd. A Tim pedal coming in a few months hopefully too! All these 3 pedals are awesome but are more mild/med ods. I had a jekyll & hyde before and I loved the hyde part of it as i could get anything from bluesy od to metal distortion. Is there a pedal out there that could do the hyde thing? I sold the j&h becoz it was too big in size and i didn't like the jekyll side of it. When the tim comes, might offload the bbd of the ltd but I'm still looking for that heavier distortion pedal to do that planetshakers thing.

    Small fry will do the scooped thing. If you want more high gain, try the DNA Gainfxxer....

    In the cheaper end of things, check out the severely underrated Marshall Jackhammer. Can do everything you ask of, and is a much better pedal than the MT-2.

    You may also want to check out both the tonebone Classic and Hot British, though they are pretty big footprints.

    I actually love the marshall pedals! great construction, sort of true bypass and great tone. Loved the ed-1 compressor. Haven't treid the jackhammer but will do so sometime this week and I've got a feeling, it might be winner there! HAha
