    I love my Hot British. I prefer that thing to anything else I've tried, including the highly-touted BJF EGDM

    I would have to go with my DAM Sonic Titan. Extremely sensitive to your pick attack and just so many sounds....from overdrive to distortion and so so dynamic. Great pedal.

    I´m not so experienced in pedals but I love the BJF DynaRed in front of a Plexi or a ClassA tube amp

    I've got a 3 knob MI Audio Tubezone, though based on some clips the Tonebone Classic seems like it would be one heck of a pedal for distortion.

    I've often wondered if the Small Fry and Crunchbox are similar pedals--hotrodded Marshall style.

    I would say that the Small Fry is more of a Fendery, refined overdrive. But I run mine into a JTM45, so it all works out in the end.
    Especially in low volume situations, I've never heard anything better.

    Not a popular choice, but I go to my Fulltone Distortion Pro for high gain wanking.

    Out off all the high priced pedals I owned I'm digging the Marshall Guvnor 2 Plus the most, and it only cost me $59!

    With an amp that's already driving there's nothing like the /13 Dyna-ranger.

    With a clean amp the Fuzz Head rocks. Sounds great with an amp that's driving too though.

    With my ASAT (or Tele), it's the Hotcake. With the Legacy (or Strat), I like the OCD.

    I've tried the G2D Morpheus, DNA Gain Fxxker, the Keeley modded MT-2. Nothing comes even close.
