    Uhhh---need a little input here guys.
    I'm looking for a TWO channel od/dirt pedal for live use--I play classic rock, some blues oriented stuff. I'm having a HARD time deciding on which pedal to snag--lots of good choices abound. I'm very close to grabbing a Pro Analog Dual Drive--great pedal, I had one a while back and bonded well with her, but no band, so I sold her..:eek: However, I cannot discount the nice drive pedals that Brian Wampler/Indyguitarist is putting out--the Hot Wired/Pinnacle/Plextortion are high on the list as well. Just looking for something "marshall-ish" with some good range, cleans up well and plenty o' harmonic content.

    Any other ideas, etc.???
    Thanks!
    Will

    Willie, you GOTTA try the FoxRox ZIM.
    With all the ZIMCards available, and the tone shaping you can do with the VOICE set-up, it is one of, if not THE, most flexible pedals out there.
    TAR+ Card and maybe a CS card(which is an amazing strat low-gain OD tone).

    Fuchs Plush Extreme Cream

    Designed specifically for what you are looking for

    Description from website

    "....Extreme Cream™
    When we introduced the Plush Cream™ a number players became repeat customers. When we asked why, they explained that they set one for a great rhythm crunch, and the second for a screaming lead tone. We went beyond solving that problem in The Extreme Cream™. We give you two 3-knob channels. One is voiced like the stock Cream. The second is voiced warmer, all under one hood. A simple a/b switch and a simple on/off switch make operation a breeze. In addition to the selected Integrated circuits, we carefully chose each resistor and capacitor to voice the Extreme Cream™ to be quiet, smooth yet articulate, and dynamic. Both channels respond well to both picking strength and guitar volume, and, best of all, it feels like a tube amp. The gain control takes you from a mild edge to the hardest scream. The tone control takes you from a warm “woman tone” to a screaming lead tone with just the right amount of sparkle. Choose your tone, then set your level with the output control and rock on! ...."

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for the most groovilicious suggestions. I went ahead and got a Pro Analog Dual Drive V.2 today--I think she's what I need! :)
