    I want something on my board to go along with my Timmy. I will most likely stack it into the Timmy so I can use it as my main drive and stack with the Timmy for leads. I'm looking for something that is smooth, warm, and thick. I'd also like it to be midrangey so I can cut through the mix. I know any good TS would work, but I just want some suggestions. Thanks!

    Check out the Wampler pedals. I have the Pinnacle Deluxe, which is more distortion than OD (although with the gain lowered it is a sweet OD), but they have several ODs that get great reviews here.

    The new Sparkle Drive Mod looks sweet, and I bet it would stack great with the Timmy.

    Thanks man. The Ecstasy looks like everything I want in an overdrive pedal, except without the mids. If I'm only gonna be using the Timmy and 1 more overdrive for my dirt, won't I want the other one to be midrangey? I play live a lot.

    Green Rhino?

    It's a great TS with many controls.

    Is there a warm, smooth, thick TS pedal that doesn't lose low end? Thats's what I'm looking for.

    The Green Rhino has a 100Hz knob to which you can add/subtract low end.

    The Green Rhino looks cool. How does it compare to a Maxon OD808?

    Od808 is a great smooth, mid-heavy Overdrive TS-style...great pedal if you are into Tubescreamers

    I like a few, fulltone OCD, MXR BA modified overdrive, the VOX ice9. It all depends on your style and the kind of music you play. Hope you find your tone, good luck!

    Try the MI Audio Blues Pro. Great pedal for the money, and it stacks great with other OD's. Mine's paired with a CMATMODS Super Signa Drive...and I love it.
