What two ODs stack together best?

Big Bob

This is a huge subject I know. I'm looking for your experience in getting three killer sounds out of two ODs. Treble boosters and Compressors welcome too!:D

Rock on....

I don't know about getting three killer sounds but I get one great sound running a Blackstone Mosfet overdrive into a Timmy.

I use a Maxon OD-808 for the light overdrive tones, a Klon for the bigger overdrive tones, and I use a Treble booster clone (w/ darker tone mod) for my marshall sounds, and sometimes I use all three for screaming distorion!!! For the more blues related stuff, I just use the Klon and OD-808.

I like most any combination you can imagine between the RC/AC/BB Boost and Timmy.

If you press me, the AC/Timmy or AC/RC would be my faves.

TIM and AC boost are working for me.

TIM is set for light overdrive. AC boost is set for medium overdrive. TIM with the internal boost engaged into the AC boost for the heavier stuff.

The TIM itself is set for unity volume with my clean amp.

The AC boost is set for a volume slightly below unity. If I engage the AC by itself, it's the perfect volume for doing background fills and runs just underneath the vocals. If I need more of that sound I can roll up the guitar volume a touch.

When I run the TIM (with internal boost engaged) into the AC, I'm just slightly above unity volume and get a great, thick rhythm and lead tone.

Three tones that work well for me and my rig.

I actually am really liking two combos right now:
MJM Blues Devil and Tim AND MJM Blues Devil and the Keeley Java Boost.
Awesome combos!
And just to add something......that MJM just gets better everytime I play it.

I'm nuts about my Analogman TS-9 Silver mod (set to 0 gain, a tad 'a tone and as much level as needed) into Timmy. Bountiful sparkle-punch.

I am LOVING a Keeley Java Boost (full range on the Toggle) into a Landgraff OD!

Analogman TS-9 Silver mod into a Menatone Top Boost in a can -- two completely different overdrive flavors which blend very well.

I used a Barber Direct Drive into a Keeley Rat2 for a couple of years.

Tubescreamer to Rat works well too.

Right now I have a Direct Drive into a BJF Emerald Green.

+1, and to add some detail, OCS in high mode, FDII in mid-cut mode. OCD first in chain. With both on, I get SLO type tone/gain.

Dyna-Ranger > Fatboost works great for me. I use them both separately and together. Nice range of tones and oevrdrive between these too.

I'm geeting some great results using an LP and running my MJM Blues Devil into a Tonebone Classic. The Tonebone is a great pedal by itself....add the Blues Devil and the combo provides just the right amount of spine tingling clarity; tons of sustain and note bloom and pushes it over the top.

Although neither are technically "overdrives" I get the best ******* dirt from Fulltone 70 into ZVex Super Duper. Mmm.
