I would like to simplify my pedal board. Do you use only one overdrive pedal with a boost pedal for higher gain? Please tell me more...
This. Don't underestimate the "flavoring" the boost will impart. Put a TS, Klone, or Voyager on mild Drive settings, etc. after an OD and hear the EQ and clarity change in interesting ways. But, boost first to achieve higher gain.Boost before OD to goose the OD. Boost after OD for simply more volume and the flavoring the boost imparts.
So... it seems a clean boost before an overdrive would not provide high enough gain, so a second low gain overdrive would work better than a clean boost?
