    I'm trying to simplify my setup...

    I have the following overdrives and i'm wanting to cull the crop;

    MJM Blues devil
    RC Booster

    Keeley ts9 Mod +
    Jetter GSR
    Fulltone Fulldrive 2 mosfet

    i've decided that the MJM and RC both stay coz they are such great pedals and I really like their transparency!!

    I play a strat into a dimed 64 vibroverb, and am going for SRV/hendrix type tones...
    (see sig for full gear list)

    Of the bottom 3 which would you keep and why?

    cheers

    none of them, according to your signature you already
    use a analogman sunface ... IMHO you should look for
    a rangemaster (like the beano) :phones

    For SRV tones, the FD2 is hard to beat. I went to see this young hotshot guitarist the other night who was a very good player with excellent tone. His amp was a Silverface Super Reverb and I looked on his pedalboard and there was a FD2 right in the middle of things. There are alot of people who who have issues with Fulltone but I am not one of them. I think that despite the fact that he might lack a few people skills he makes some great pedals and they are built like tanks to last for a long time.

    The FD2 is just so usable a every setting, that sometimes it is the kind of pedal you'd wanna have a couple of on the board!
    And technically, an RC is just a Volume Boost, the AC is more of the OD..

    The Jetter Red is a great pedal but for what you are going for I would lose that one for sure. The Keeley and the Fulldrive are a tougher call. I would probably keep the Keeley and buy a nice Fuzz Face.

    I would keep the Jetter. Too many pedals these days are based off of the TS808 circuit...I think the Jetter would give you some more character :)

    Same thing happened to me and I foolishly sold my Keeley modded Ts9. I'll regret that until I get another one.

    it's definitely more difficult than I thought...

    I dont think i'll sell any, coz they're all great pedals and I have been known to change my mind... ;)
