    Still searching for the perfect OD for the Swart. The one I like best so far is the BB Preamp. The OCD and FD2 are very good, but not quite what I am looking for. I've had a couple of Klons, and depending on the amp, they are either exceptional or average. I am looking for a bold and muscular OD. Is this what I am looking For?

    The Klon + AST are one of the best pedal-amp combos out there, IMO.
    Keep in mind that the klon is a true overdrive, so you'll need to have the amp running a bit dirty and then kick the klon in. Once you do that you'll have bold and muscular for dayz.

    When I bought my AST, I did so because of the great tones it has on it's own. I would like to throw a pedal in front of it for that marshall crunch, but all I have been doing is reading up on what may be the best.

    Exactly! The tone plugged straight in is exceptional.

    Swart makes a pedal almost designed for the AST...you may already be familiar with it. If not, check out the combination on this youtube clip...sounds great to me.
