OD redundancy or not?

I would like to add another OD pedal to my set up and wanted to make sure I didn't have too much overlap.

Current line up:
Empress Comp > MP Fire Red Fuzz > EB Wah > Timmy > BF Model H > JHS Angry Charlie > TRex Moller > DVP1 VP > Timeline > Modfactor

I'm getting rid of the Angry Charlie, since I do not use it much. I use the Timmy for low gain and EQ-ing, the TREX is my medium gain pedal, the BF Model H takes care of the higher gain needs. I wanted to add something in the low to mid gain range.

Contenders...
POT
JHS Morning Glory
Wampler Paisley or Ecstacy
BF Honey Bee
Other suggestions...

It looks like you pretty much have everything covered there but I will say that the the HB is another great low gainer with a totally different character to the Timmy.

The co-exist really well on a board and stack well if you're into that sort of thing. They're a bit of a classic combo.

If you're using single coils a humbucker guitar wouldn't be a bad idea, actually. I was strictly a single coil guy and I had the worst time with ODs, finally got a humbucker guitar and my tone was a lot more where I wanted it.

BTW - I play through a Maz 18 using a G&L ASAT Classic S.

Some of the amp in a box pedals are intriguing. Like Wampler '65 or '57, TBIAC or CB30

Sweet Honey OD sounds nice too, but would it be too much like the Moller. (TS)

Klone
Jelly Roll

I bought a Klone in the Emporium and it works well with everything (Gaetano Capuano made it). He has some video demos in his ad there.

Lumpy's Jelly Roll is another OD that seems to work well for light to medium gain stuff with nice small amp-like breakup and a chimey clarity.
