    In the last few days, I have found a stack that really works for me. I think this has just become "my tone." For now. Here it is:

    Amp: Sewell Texaverb (Fenderish amp set clean)

    Guitar: EJ Strat

    Rhythm: Screw Driver
    Gain 2:00
    Tone 10:30
    Volume to taste

    Lead: The above, plus the Mayo:
    Sustain 8:00
    Tone 12:30
    Volume to taste
    Toggle set to Flat Mids

    Add some fine analog-ish delay from my Thundertweak and we're in business.

    The rhythm is that wonderful touch-sensitive OD that you get from the SD. It cleans up with the guitar's volume, but I typically just use my pick attack since that cleans it up so well on its own.

    The lead sound is the fattest I've had. And surprisingly touch sensitive considering we're dealing with a Muff in the mix.

    I'm not sure of any other maker whose pedals I find so ... satisfying.

    No clips, sorry. I need to get that kind of equipment someday. I had a Boss Micro BR, but that was earlier in the year.

    Sounds like you'll be able to hear it for yourself soon!

    So you're just using the Mayo to fatten your sound a bit, that's a great idea, I'll have to try that. I've always used my Mayo or Pink Flesh alone with the sustain around noon.

    The Screw Driver just works well with others. I like it with my Top Fuel or Keeley Rat for lead work. Timmy and SD work great together too.

    Yes, that's correct.

    And I had always used it the way you mentioned, too, but I was interested in what the Mayo could do at lower sustain levels. And then I kicked on the SD and wow.

    The SD really does work well with everything. One of the biggest sounds on my pedalboard is the SD driving an EH Little Big Muff. HUGE.
