    i have heard somewhere on these pages that if you dont have a small cooking valve amp at hand for your treble booster you can use it to goose a OD pedal into a fender twin say......who would you set that up, dirt or TB 1st?

    I'd go TB first. That's what I used to do, anyway.

    But yeah, a cooking amp is a much better pair.

    TB into OD is just about the only OD stack I like. It can be a killer.

    Yep, TB -> OD

    Most convincing at loud volumes, but works for bedrooms too

    TB first unless you have a Fuzz Face. Then you have rock 'n' roll perfection.

    MJM Dallas Boost or RM Booster. Same thing just new and old names/enclosures. Can be found for $100-$120. Great Treble Booster!

    I used a treble booster boosting my klone through my hole band record... I played through a Marshall Superbass but, as we recorded together in the same room, I couldn't get the amp to overdrive - the klon made the little extra boost, and the TB was perfect for solos...

    I just discovered the TB before overdrive, which, to me, sounds really good - some flexibility too, you can run the OD and kick the TB in for solos as Paulo mentions, or the other way around depending on what you need - there is a lot of flexibility and variety of sounds you can get from this set up, especially if the TB has a toggle to switch between normal treble, mid and low boosts- I think a lot of TBs have this switch.
