    LOL. I use a stock TS-9 here, but have been eyeing the Maxon, just for the true bypass...

    A quick sidebar:
    I am looking for a new overdrive and have been thinking Tube Screamer.
    I only get to turn my amp up loud once and a while, so is it worth to get a tube screamer on a 30w amp that I rarely get up loud enough to scream?
    If not, what would give me a nice TS-esqe OD at lower and higher volumes?

    Maxon modded by some guy on ebay -For the classic tone
    Timmy- more open works great as a boost or for low gain
    Xotic BB preamp- good for thicker higher gain sound

    Jekyll side of the Jekyll & Hyde pedal. It is a very good interpretation of the original TS808, but with more volume and bass. This pedal works great after heavier distortions to give them something else for solos. It also works great for Led Zep type of tones.

    I have just acquired a Hardwire CM-2 Tube Overdrive, and in my opinion, it is better than the Jekyll. It sounds more harmonically rich, and with its two difference voicings (Classic and Modified) you really get many more possibilities.

    Fulltone Fulldrive 2 Mosfet. I run it on the vintage mode with the volume at 2 o'clock, tone at 2 or 3 o'clock, overdrive at about 9 o'clock, and boost (if I ever use it) at around noon. Sounds wonderful through my AC15.
