    Right now I'm only using the OCD.

    Sid, What is your low gain od/boost?

    Haven't played the mucho boosto, but the sexdrive is about as clear a boost as they come. And dang it gets loud if you want it. Keeps high end detail intact, and the compression hi/lo switch is a handy tone variance. The gain knob is useful too to dial in a little grit on the clean boost if you like. Between the two you can find sweet spots anywhere. I bought one as an impulse buy a few months back here on the emporiums and it's worked so well with every amp that I've played. Those who have heard my pedal will agree! :D

    Right now.

    A Voodoo-1 for compressed clean to a little hair.

    Cot 50 for a little more hair and more dynamic and bright sound.

    Old dual board SD-9 for distortion.

    I`m currently also playing around a lot with the White Dragon.

    More infinate sustain it`s either Voodoo or Cot into the SD-9 and if I want an even more wild lead sound I step on the Chorus or Vibe too.

    My rhythm sound is my old small-box Rat, which I run with the gain very low, thinking of adding another OD (Timmy?) to the board, so I could have two different rhythm sounds and run the Rat a bit hotter... For solos I stack the Rat with the new E-H Little Big Muff, also with the gain down, but volume up.

    Depends on how much gear I've brought. If it's my small rig, I use an Eternity pedal through a Route 66. If it's my full rig, it's an A/B switch routing my signal to a Fuchs ODS50 with a H&K Replex in the effects loop.

    My main rhythm sound is Timmy, Screwdriver or both stacked. The stacked sound works well for some leads too. If I need more I kick in the Top Fuel or the Mayo.

    it was an Eq pedal set for a nice +10db (around that) But i got round to finishing my clean booster which cleaned the floor with it. I set it on 1 o'clock and thats two much most of the time with a OD and a little delay.

    Similar to Jero's Sonic Boom, I step on a Nick Greer Royal Fromage at the end of the chain.

    I use my Hot Cake if I'm using one amp (Dr. Z 6545) or I hit my headswitcher to give me the overdrive channel of my Fuchs ODS20 when I am using both amps.

    This is my never ending problem! I have a base sound with my amp that I like for rhythm playing, but for leads (and a couple of heavier songs) where I need more volume and sustain, I'm always looking. I alternate between these 3 right now:

    TC Jauernig Gristle King: This gets the most use and I'll probably settle on this once and for all.

    MI Audio Tubezone: Nice gain, a bit noisy for me though.

    coreybox's Jalapeno Boost: HUGE output and sort of a fuzzy singing sustain. I'll probably settle on a live rig based around this one and the Gristle King.

    I usually use my RC Booster, and often times I am using a Budda Wah. Though I just picked up a dd-3 which could get added to the mix.
