    I used to have a setup of a Fulltone Fulldrive II acting as a gain boost into a V2 Jeckyl and Hyde and it absolutely rocks!

    I would say that the OD side of V2/ V3 J&H has has a more TS808 feel to it as such that it has more compression and bass compared to the TS-9 OD of the Fulldrive... which is more open and flat sound.

    They really complement very well!

    I still want to get a V2 J&H. I'm not sold on the V3 either. I have a V2 Open Road, and I really don't want a modified version of that on the J&H. I'd rather have the TS-like circuit that's on the Double Trouble and Route 808 (I think it's still my favorite TS of all time).

    As much as I love the sound of the V2 version because of the TS-style circuit, they suck too much on a pedalboard placement!

    I can't get beyond the aesthetics of the V2 pedals. The V3 doesn't look amazing but it's passable.

    I’m the rare bird that likes the uniqueness of the V2 shape. The V3 looks pretty boring to me.

    This man speaks the truth on this. The V2s totally blow when trying to fit and stick them to a pedalboard.

    It can be done but it is tricky to press if you put it on 2nd tier! :D

    My old big boards

    My favorite V1 red J&H just needs to be put on the bottom tier so I can easily activate it
