It depends on the amp I’m using.

That’s funny I went from a Benson to the broadcast. I loved the benson but I really love that wildness your talking about.I'm using a Walrus Voyager and Benson Preamp together... which pretty much the same exact idea as what you're using (Voyager is very Klon-like).
Broadcast is an absolutely incredible pedal. I had one but sold it so I could get the Benson, simply because the Benson has a treble control... but they are so similar. Broadcast has a certain "wildness" when cranked that I kinda miss.
I’ve had a severe case of overdrive GAS during the last year, and although I’ve slowed down a bit, I now have a bad case of decision paralysis.Barber Gain Changer into
I've only had the Minstrel v.3 for about a month, and not a lot of opportunities to play it. So far I've only played with Suhr Classic Pro S SSH. I am reserving my judgment until I have spent more time playing. One thing that became really obvious to me, though, is how good the Barber Gain Changer sounds. I just can't find a bad sound on it. The Minstrel seems both more subtle and maybe also not as easy to find a great sound... I'm going to give it more time before I decide whether to keep it or move it on.I’ve had a severe case of overdrive GAS during the last year, and although I’ve slowed down a bit, I now have a bad case of decision paralysis.
My fav new (to me) OD at the moment is the Vemuram Shanks ODS-1. Full of richness and sheen, yet it somehow manages to keep string and note clarity even when playing chords with the gain set pretty high. The ODS-1 has a sonic smoothness and luster across a really wide range of EQ.
Not far behind it are my Barber GCX and Kingsley Minstrel v2. Never thought about stacking them, though. @inheritsfrom, would love to hear your thoughts and experience related to running your Gain Changer into your Minstrel, where you set the toggles on both, etc. I’ll be looking into that combo tomorrow! Thanks for the idea!
