Tired of Pedal Dancing!

I have a question for anyone that uses these 2 particular pedals or another pedal that would meet these requirements. I'm getting tired of dragging my pedal board to my gigs lately. I have some nice units for OD on it, OCD, ZD, BoR, DD-6, Bad Monkey, BuddaWah. I've been looking at the SD Twin Classic, and the Tonebone Trimode. I would like to just run one of these into my Goodsell 17 with a DD-6 and be done with it. For the type of music I play, I would just like the ability to drop a couple of pedals on the floor and go from clean, to rythym crunch, to a nice sustaining lead tone. I have been looking at these dual-mode pedals, and I think one of these would be really nice for simplicity, and for quick set-up and tear down. I think the ability to go from crunch to a nice "saturated" lead tone all from one pedal would be great. I like the loop feature in the Trimode, as I would be able to set up a delay into the lead circuit. Anyone else have a set up like this? How do these pedals perform for you? I'm gonna probably buy one of these, which would be the better choice? They're about the same price, about $200-250. Anyone have any "feedback" for me? Thanks in advance.

I did a few gigs a while back with just my Menatone King of the Britains and my Echolution. The KOB is nice because you set the dirt side for your rhythm sound and then adjust the clean boost side for however much gain you want it to add. When you hit the boost though it doesnt just the volume much if at all. Just in gain.

What he said! Except my suggestions would be the Working Man's Blue or the VOS. And I use a Maxon AD.

H&K Tubeman +: 3 channels amp and direct to board outputs...It's my first goto pedal (and currently on my main PB) and I've got a few: Budda Phatman, SIB Varidrive, MI Tube Zone, Burn Unit, AC Booster, FD II, DNA Gain Fxxxr, are among some of the my drive pedals....So far the H&K works great with all my amps..close 2nd are the Budda and the SIB but amp dependent. IMHO

Try to put the trigger on a KOT.
The yellow side will give you more of your amp, the red side another step ahead, and both channels will assure your leads.
Cleans up well with the guitar pot, and sensitive to dynamics.
I think it's all what you need.

Check out a Barber Burn Unit EQ. Two channels, so you can set the amp clean, use one channel for rhythm and the other for lead. Works great for what you describe...
