    Do you have the louder version of the Sunbender or the older version? Seems like mine could use a little more volume, wondering if I should send it in to Mike.

    Another vote for the WHE Green Rhino: I like its toothy aggression and you can adjust the bass and mids, making it more versatile than your typical TS variant.

    Keeley Red Dirt is arguably the gold standard for TS overdrives but I found it congested with the amps I currently use. It was gorgeous when I used it in front of a clean Fender Twin RI on one gig.

    If I need more power, I use the Keeley D&M Drive. The one side is an OCD with extra gain and the other side is somewhere between a TS and a Klone. Highly recommended.

    I have the newest version - the louder version. I tried out an older (quieter) version at a store. The new version sounds the same but can turn up louder. I’m glad I got this version.

    Most every overdrive I own works with a BF Fender, but for fuzz, my '60's Jordan Boss Tone rules!

    I used a CE pedals FET Dream into a Fender DRRI at rehearsal last night. Sounded great.

    Had a Rat, but it sounded harsh with my amp. Gonna try one again. All great suggestions.

    The KOT is great. I think some guys listen to it at home and think it boosts mids and cuts bass and it’s not gainy enough. But live, with a drummer and a blackface amp with a strat , it’s just perfect.

    Kingtone Dualist ticks every box for me. Sounds glorious through my Deluxe Reverb.
