    I know that you are going to say that it depends or rig etc. but I need to eliminate 1-2 if they are duplicates. I have the whole fender line 53 deluxe, 66 princeton rv, 70 deluxe rev, 71 twin, 74 vibrolux, valvetech hayseed 30 and vac22, bumbox cielo = jtm45 clone and a trainwreck clone. For guitars I have mostly tele's and les paul's a few strats and 335. My music is indie rock to jazz to some metal just for fun. I used custom wound pups from wolfetone and a few other manlius, bg pups, vintage vibe, rio grande.

    With this tonal variation I have the following od's just give an opinion about which one or two is to go.

    analogman brown ts9
    NOC3 firefly
    NOC3 Pure Drive
    Catalinbread silver kiss mk II
    Tim
    SRB808+ with the 2 switches and landgraff
    clone of a way huge Red Llama from stressfx

    thanks in advance

    I'd also keep the Analogman Brown... It would definitely be the most commercially well-known out of those, and would probably hold its value (or raise, even) the best over time, in case you changed your mind later.

    Definitely keep the Silver Kiss... that little box excels in so many applications. I love that little drive pedal. It's been on the board since they first came out and has seen Eternities, Red Snappers, Timmy's, and many other OD's, fuzzes, distortions, etc. come and go

    I've only had a Mk. II for a short while - I do prefer the originals.
    That said, I like it as a low to medium gain OD that doubles duty as a gritty booster for other drives or fuzzes. It's really something that it gets along with such a variety of other pedals in that role. My general suggestion would be to adjust the Treble and Bass to taste (in that order), and dial back the mids more than you think you should.

    With all those amps i'd think you could safely get rid of all those pedals, get a killer amp switching system, and still have an exellent tonal arsenal!

    man, +1. i'd just get rid of all the OD pedals and crank the amps. if it doesn't have a master vol, i'd get an attenuator to coax em out at listening levels.

    I'm fascinated by Llamas...they are similar to treble boost (very open and clear, almost hi-fi) but they are easier to use.
