    I don't think this is a lame answer. If it works for you, it works for you.

    On my Marshall board I’ve been experimenting with various pedals. I have a Schaffer Replica, TS-808HW, Metropoulos Supa Boost, Timmy v3, Ibanez/Vemuram TSV-808, Maxon TS-9, RC Boost, and a Klon KTR. I really like the tone and feel of the Schaffer and Supa Boost. The Timmy adds an extra channel to any of my Marshall’s. This is a killer boost pedal that will retain the amps character just adds gain if needed. Each of these pedals add a certain characteristic. With certain Marshall heads I gravitate towards certain boost pedals also. If I had to have only one I’d choose the.... well I don’t know what I’d choose just yet. I think I’ll keep them all.

    Not lame at all!! I need to try mine with the Marshalls. Currently on my 64 Custom Deluxe board and hasn’t moved. Such a great pedal.

    My Klon Centaurs. Unfortunately I can't take them out anymore due to the ridiculous prices, so I use a Ceriatone Centura instead.

    The LAA-Custom CN81 is the only thing that I’ve found that makes the Suhr PT-15 sound better. Unique design and a cool guy who builds them.

    Lightspeed has pretty much secured that spot for me.

    Zenkudo stacked with a Simble is super versatile!
    Arc Effects Klone or a KTR...

    I picked up a couple of Vox dirtboxes the other day, and I'm really enjoying the Ice-9. Keeper? Not sure. But I'm sure as hell having fun with it right now. It's pretty clear-toned with the gain dialed back, and has much more boost than I need. I'm likin' it.

    I have a couple of ODs purchased fairly recently that I am liking a lot and could replace my old standby's as keepers (like the Barber Gain Changer compact), but the one that has stayed around the longest - by virtue of which is my number one keeper at present - is my Subdecay Super Nova Drive. It's very smooth - kind of like a Zendrive (which I owned briefly but sold because the Super Nova made it sort of redundant), and with it's nice three band EQ is pretty versatile. It is not exactly transparent, but I don't have much use for transparent drives.

    I could easily have picked my old EQD Chrysalis instead, and I've had it almost as long as the Super Nova. It's not versatile at all, makes pickups in any position behave like a bridge pickup, and it basically does one thing - but does it super well. I can't imagine ever parting with it.

    Tone Bender Mk II derivative.

    Lately, I’m just turning up the amp, and/or playing cleaner, and finding I sound better.

    Maybe stupid question, but why not just get a POT or two?
