    Can anybody recommend OD pedals with top jacks? No other real criteria, just looking for another flavor of drive to add, but only have space for a pedal with top jacks!
    Ha!

    Since there are literally hundreds of ODs that meet your criteria I'm just gonna drop a random one in here that I've been diggin: The Fried Gold by Yellowcake Pedals. Pretty flat EQ wise, just gives you more of your amp. One of my favorite ODs.

    All awesome, in order of versatility, IMO (I think all are great, I think BP is the easiest to integrate for a few reasons--e.g., ease of use). There are others, but I think these are all slam dunks due to flexibility and sound. -E

    Mine has top jacks. Greatest OD I've ever touched and will certainly be "a different flavour"/

    That was an odd demo and that Jazzmaster kinda sounded like crap. Anyway, seems like a cool pedal

    This is awesome. Thank you everybody. My horizons are expanded, and have a lot more to consider. I like the idea of a Klon type pedal in a smaller enclosure (Archer), especially since my KTR died and I don't have room for it anyway!

    Keep em coming!

    Is it that good?, I'm going thru a Timmy and a Barber 1/2 Gainer and would like a tone shaping 3rd pedal to add, just enough room with top jack Talon.

    ...'bout to pull the trigger

    PoT is a really good one if you need a smooth, balanced, low-gain OD. I had one for like 48 hours and traded it, but only because it didn't fulfill my exact needs (one OD to do everything) for this nano board. Would be great in a quiver of OD pedals like you're describing.

    As you don't have any other criteria, how about a drive that can do it all.

    Dr Scientist The Elements, can do a whole lot, from boost, eq, low gain to fuzz.
