    Right now I have nothing. .. recommend me 3 ods ....or two ods and a distortion...

    Basically I want 3 gain stages through a clean amp from pedals that work well together

    Light /medium/ heavy

    What are you using to achieve this...?

    I run into a clean Fender SF combo, and am currently liking these a lot:

    Xotic RC Boost or Tim
    KoT
    Xotic SL Drive (or Skreddy LMMD, OCD, Dyna Red. Etc.)

    It was more difficult to find keepers for the low and medium gain pedals. For me the high gain area is covered ably by any number of pedals, and I'll sometimes swap those depending on what sound I'm going for.

    The setup I've used for over two years now:

    GarageTone Drivetrain -> Hardwire CM-2 -> Turbo Rat

    The Drivetrain is a great low gainer, fairly compressed (which makes it sing well set low), but pretty open EQ-wise. Slight mid-hump, but not too much.
    I use the CM-2 in "Modified" mode, which is more raw and bassier than the TS-Style OD it offers on the "Normal" setting. Big fat Plexi tone, fairly dynamic, just the right amound of mids for my Teles. Love it!
    The Turbo Rat is just straight dope into a big clean amp. Get one of the multi-mode Rats to see which kind of Rat you prefer. Even the cheap Mooer Black Secret is really good. Can't go wrong with any kind of Rat.

    Boss SD-2, DS-2 and FS-7 to switch between all four channels on the two pedals covers ever level of gain I need with my band! Green channel on SD-2 for light, regular channel on DS-2 for medium, red channel on SD-2 for heavy and turbo channel on DS-2 for middy lead boost.

    Came to post exactly this. My drive right now is the TS -> Sonic Titan -> Klon

    Sonic Titan is my base, low overdrive, gain platform for a rhythm tone. I boost it with a Cusack Screamer V2 for smoothness, compression, and slight volume increase for lead tones. When it's solo time, I stomp the Rimrock MO.

    The light/clean boost very much depends on the guitar and amp (TS style cuts lows and adds mids, EP boost or similar fattens everything up, etc)
    Medium - Bogner Wessex or Barber DD
    Heavy - Bogner Red or any good MIAB

    I know it wasn't the question but I like two OD's, light and medium, and stack them for high.

    Right now using the JHS Double Barrel, Morning Glory side is light and TS side is medium. Stack them and the MG pushes the TS even harder. Good stuff

    I'd go with a Super Hard On, a Hardwire SC2 and a Rat. I love how these stack.

    On a side note, in case you haven't, give the ol' volume knob a try.
