    I'm loving my Fulltone Fulldrive 2 MOSFET with my Suhr Badger 18.

    Right now I’d got with my Brothers. Two channels each with boost/drive/fuzz options provides a ton of versatility and the more time I spend with it the more I learn to appreciate it.

    But....I also have a Black Box Duo on the way and my Black Box Mini is my favorite low gain OD. My Duo will have a high gain switch for the second channel so with that and the stacking ability it may take my top spot for a one and only, we’ll see when it arrives.

    Can't do just one. I need a Ge treble booster, and either a Systech Harmonic Energizer or Maestro Parametric Filter (or updated clone thereof). Treble booster > either of the parametric filters when stacking.

    Right now it's a white box Lovepedal Jubilee. Great low to mid gain, clear or fuzzy! It has sent plenty packing since I got it including more popular Lovepedals.

    My Kingsley minstrel should be coming in soon and I think that could be it. Hopefully.

    For me, it used to be a Barber Gain Changer. Until my Kingsley Minstrel came. Now the Barber sits on a shelf.

    Fuzz Face Ge circuit with a LP custom, Guild Starfire or Tele into a 18 or 22 watt EL84 amp. Also love the Skreddy HFD and EQD Westwood.

    Edit to add: I play it all from classic rock to surf, country, reggae, etc. sadly light on the jazz

    For overdrive I could do with a Menatone Red Snapper.

    But if we are talking about all dirt, the pedal I cannot live without it is my VFE Alpha Dog, that thing is just perfect

    The Way Huge Green Rhino. I tried a bunch of other overdrives last year and I eventually returned to the Green Rhino. It’s an absolute beast, especially when pushing a Marshall.

    Couldn’t pick one, but just got a Hudson Broadcast 2 switch, and it sounds so awesome, especially in my Vox.

    Probably my BD-2 or Rat after that.

    I'll help hold the flag up and say either a Jester or a Minstrel. Scary good piece of kit, those Kingsley's.

    Getting ready to put the Tumnus back on, keep trying to go without and it keeps coming back.

    Mad Professor Royal Blue with a strat into any clean amp basically. Great eq controls and can go from basically clean to all-out fuzz.

    The Dude, hands down!

    Does some things better than anything I've tried. And does everthing (that is relevant to me) at least at "good enough" level.

    V2 is coming in couple weeks, I hear: silver knobs, different taper volume pot, better swtching (not that I've found anything wrong with it in V1) and same tone!

    I love my TS-5. I don't really use it because of the footswitch. And I'm not sure, financially if it would be worth rehousing the thing. It's got one of the alternative chips on it and to my ears sounds a little more aggressive than your typical JRC TS-9/808.

    I could almost do with only my Maxon SD-9 and the volume knob on the guitar.

    If I had to have only one, I’d probably go shopping :)

    But of the ones I currently have, I’d use the Xotic BB Preamp.

    That said, I don’t use a ton of dirt boxes on my board, usually I have two, sometimes three.

    Rat. Not an od pedal but it can be used for pretty much everything from light or heavy od to distortion to fuzz.
