Any suggestions?
I have a Bogner Shiva 6L6 1x12 combo. Great gain channel, but I'm looking for a heavy crunch, achieved from either the gain or clean channel. Not metal.

If you play humbucker guitars, I would highly recommend the Catalinbread SCO (it doesn't sound so great with SC pups, IMO).

My fav high gain pedal is this little guy. Through my Route 66, it's pure Gary Moore.

Kaden Brown Creeper. Harmonics galore, but can be a little muddy w/ the wrong rig. Sounds great w/ mine!

Nice ped...I also like the Shredmaster for a bit more compression and sustain.

My Barber DDSS hangs in there as one of my favs. MI Audio Tube Zone also sounds great, less compressed, leans slightly to a tighter modern tone, really sweet.

Fulltone OCD

use just a little overdrive on the shiva and crank the gain on the OCD. I was sorely disappointed with the Keeley DS-1 ultra. It had a huge pedal blanket. The OCD doesnt sound like a pedal on any setting.

Man I tell you I've never had a more usable distortion than that Baja Tech Custom Da MOAF. Leads, rhythm, blues, metal, alt it's all in there. Just fantastic!

I have been through a slew of pedals.

I have found the Barber DDSS to be the best for me.


But ..... only after I sent it back to Dave Barber for the PCB Mod.

I had always wanted a little bigger and looser low end thump with less compression and flatter mids. With all the internal trimmers and adjustments, it sounds perfect with all my blackface fenders!

Best 60 bucks I have spent.

I plan on sending in my LTD to have it done too!
