    I am just getting my pedal board back into shape. I have a space open to be filled. This is what it looks like so far:

    Guitar > Boss Tuner > Keeley Compressor > MXR Phase 90 > ______ >
    TIM (EQ in FX Loop) > Analogman DD-3 > EHX Small Clone > AMP

    I am using the TIM as my main sound, the EQ to fatten up the TIM and the DD-3 for solos....

    That is what I am looking at so far. I mostly play classic rock, hard rock style of music. I am a big fan of The Black Crowes, The Who, Pink Floyd, SRV, Alice in Chains (F'kn Jerry Cantrell rocks), Peter Frampton etc. I am mostly a rythum player, with a little solo work.

    With the MXR Phaser, I might re-think the EHX Small Clone on the board for a modulation effect.

    Thoughts and opinions???
    Thanks.

    I don't think you should buy a pedal if you don't feel like you're missing anything sound-wise. But if you still want to buy something, I'd say get a Tube Screamer, a clean boost or a mid-high gain OD.

    I picked up a Fulltone GT-500.
    I am not a Fuzz type. I tried the OCD and the Mosfet Fulldrive and they sounded too fizzy for me. I really liked the organic sounds of the GT-500. I also liked that I could run the distortion side OR the boost side by themselves.

    You really do owe it to yourself to try a germanium fuzz with the guitar's volume knob rolled back. If you want warm, organic-sounding overdrive, that's the ticket. It's a beautiful thing.

    I can't stop spreading the word enough about the Menatone Shut Up And Drive!
    You may not "need" it but for the versatility alone it's worth checking out. It's a killer tool in any arsenal.
