    i have a great crunchy, raw and ballsy rythm sound that is perfect for me with my tim. Im looking for something that wont alter my sound but give more gain for solos.

    Eternity- attenuates bass too much
    SCOD-has it dont like it.
    Tonebone classic- not my thing.

    what im thinking is:

    Klon
    Timmy
    Xotic
    OCD
    Mi blue boy dlx

    Other suggestions?

    For about a year and a half now. The Keeley BD-2 is my lead boost. Pretty damn transparent.

    RC Booster or BB preamp depending on how much gain you want.


    btw. Have you tried different chips in the Eternity. Chips are very cheap, so...........

    Stacking or using alone? I'm thinking Gaspedal Carb, or possibly COT50 if you don't mind some additional volume boost.

    DOD Bi-Fet Preamp FX10 will boost without affecting your tone when used post overdrive. Pre overdrive it will goose any overdrive/distortion to provide more gain. Very musical, very clean, understated - just does the job as good as stuff many times the cost.

    Hm... basically a transparent boost that not only pushes your Tim but adds some gain.

    Menatone Red Snapper
    Xotic BB Preamp

    Those would be my choices of the pedals I've owned. Then again, if you really like the Tim, then perhaps a Timmy?

    With the Hotcake, if you set gain and presence to zero, it doesn't change your sound at all. You can dial in a volume boost to hit your amp harder, or add a little gain from the pedal, either way will work great, and the presence control is very cool.

    While the Keeley Phat mod BD-2 is nice, I have a BD-2 with the T-Von H2O mod that I actually think is more alive and transparent. At only around $30 shipping included for the mod kit + the price of the BD-2 the H2O is much less expensive that the Keeley. No matter which one of the two you go with both of these modded BD-2's are astounding for the $!!!
