    Compressor for Clean rhythm
    (always on) Delay for ambience or rhythmic delays

    honorable mentions:
    OD for heavier rhythm tone

    Xotic EP Booster - for boosted chimey cleans

    VS Open Road - for crunchy rhythm chords; or swap with a RAT or left side of a VS-XO

    Low gain OD - I like OCD for Fender amps and Timmy for Vox amps.
    Boost before OD - To crank it up to medium gain when the chorus kicks in.
    Big Muff - Because Big Muff.
    Maybe a compressor - If I'm doing lots of clean, uptempo stuff.
    Slapback delay - Because it sounds awesome.

    And Proco Rat if you have the space - I'm a huge fan of the Rat for rhythm stuff. I usually use it for low to medium gain stuff. I can't remember the last time I recorded a song where there wasn't a Rat on in one way or another.

    EDIT: Oh snap, just two? Then the Rat and the Big Muff for dirty alt rock, and RC Boost into and OCD for mellow or straight rock.

    For the current project;
    either a Wampler Leviathan into a BAT Pharaoh Fuzz.
    Or,
    A DOD Carcosa into a Fuzzhugger Doom Bloom.

    Just rhythm? Nothing. Assuming I'm using my own rig.

    Timmy and MXR Badass Modified OD. Other effects (modulation, delay, wah) are just added icing on the cake when needed.

    For what I'm currently playing, an OCD v1.7 or a DOD Gunslinger. I'll boost either one with a DOD 250 or a TC Spark Booster on the "mid" setting.

    Currently, a delay/chorus and reverb. I do run an always on boost for my single coils tho. A giga delay, space echo into a CDR, Snake Bite, RV-3, etc.

    I usually have like 3-4 effects on per ryhtm track though, lol.

    It used to be my OCD (always on) but now I just make my Super Sonic 22w sound like my OCD.

    Also, on the tuner: I have been converted to clip-on tuners. I don't get why would you run a tuner pedal if not for the buffer.
