I have an Ego Compressor and a pile of great OD's I use with my Fender tube amps. I usually put the compressor first (always on) and goose the OD next in the chain. Lately, its either a Klon KTR, a KOT or a Weehbo JTM. Anyway, in band practice today, I forgot to turn on a drive pedal and I was pleasantly surprised how great my tone was with just the compressor. I did the rest of the practice without a drive pedal and just rode the guitar's volume control for solos or to taste for how much drive I wanted. The compressor was set to boost a little bit and I had the blend control up to 50% (all compressors should have a blend!). Probably one of the easiest practices I have had honing in on a good tone for the song and eq'ing myself for the band mix.
