    Only one? I would have to go with my Timmy. It just sounds good with everything I have tried it with.

    Thanks.
    What is an EF?
    I've heard great things about the Dr Z amps.
    I have two amps. One is a 1985 Marshall jcm 800 two channel 50 Watt. Not a Plexi but it sounds decent through a 412 cabinet.
    My other amp is a Fender hot rod deluxe iv combo.

    I appreciate any advice and thoughts you have.
    Thanks again.

    EF = envelope filter

    Perhaps running it through a 412 kills some of it's Cab sim benefits?

    But perhaps it's just not the right amp combos, For as many people who LOVE the KTR it just wasn't for me. I've decided it must be my amps if it sounds so good for others.

    Bogner ecstacy blue. I feel if I sent it in to get the volume boost fix that this could cover everything I could ever need. I think it sounds so good that I can over look the flaw and live with just this.

    Klon, but I'd settle for a rat.

    I'd probably go with my Klinger MkIII Tonebender, is pretty versatile for overdrive and fuzz tones.

    If it had to be only one forever then it would be the OCD ... and I don't even own one right now.

    If I had to pick only one to cover a wide range of music, I’d have to choose the Barber Gain Changer.

    Likely Origin Revival Drive Compact. Can get multiple amp tones. Very versatile.
    Other option: next dirt pedal I buy until 2 weeks after it arrives.....

    Barber Direct Drive. Its functions as a lower gain OD to cranked plexi level distortion. It covers more bases for me than anything else I've ever had. And it does it through a clean amp beautifully.

    I would miss my Barber Dirty Bomb though...

    Just one dirt pedal that can be used in a variety of scenarios and gain levels?

    Simple... RAT

    Disclaimer: I don't need a dirt pedal; I get all me toanz from the amp. But... if I absolutely have to have one, the good old Blues Driver is just fine for me.
