    Curious what Shiva owners (past & present) have paired with their Shivas for different flavors/colors of OD. I use my Shiva in a cover band rig and I primarily play through just the OD channel. I occasionally kick in a BB Preamp with the gain channel for a little "more." It'd be great to have another "color" or two. Any recommendations? Tim? Timmy? Box O Rocks?

    these are some I used with my 2x10, 6lL6 Shiva primarily with the clean channel. For "sag" I like the RC Booster, always worked well for me.

    You used this with the clean channel as well or with the OD channel?

    Thought I'd refresh this post as I'm still looking. Any other thoughts?

    Big fan of using an xotic ac booster, bb preamp with mid boost and my v2 ocd all sounded great! The ac booster is great with both channels adds a "crunch" channel and gooses the lead channel real well

    I've heard this re: the ac booster. Do you pair the ocd with the lead channel as well? Do you do so for a different color than the bb preamp would give you?

    Barber Silver LTD worked great with the Shiva when I had one.
