The Age Old Debate thread I started has inspired me to start a new series of threads called Your Pedal of Choice. Its a thread where you can share what gear you're using to shape your tone.

First Up Dirt Pedals
What pedals are you using to Dirty up your tone and drive your amp

Right Now I'm using the Bogner Red and Blue Ecstasy pedals to drive a Crate Powerblock

BRENT MASON-HOT WIRED, OD/DIST. Run that into an eventide eclipse processor. From there the signal is split and sent to a mesa boogie F-30 and a mesa boogie nomad 55.

Fulltone OCD, Ibanez TS9 but right now I am addicted to Bogner's Ecstasy Red.

OCD! Boss OD-3!

OCD V3 or V4 then Keeley Mod Blues Driver and Keeley Mod Tube Screamer.

The Tube Screamer is my "MORE" button. The Blues Driver is my Blues Rock tone. The OCD is my harder rock tone.

I use to have a Carl Martin Quattro, non-tremolo version, and I really liked the two dirt pedals build into it. I loved that unit. I have heard the new Bogner stuff is amazing also.

Anyone try the Fulltone Plimsoul? I was looking at an OCD last week, then saw the Plimsoul, ended up leaving empty handed after all.

I have one, it was my main dirt pedal for at least a year when I was doing cover band gigs. It's slightly noisier than the OCD, but a great pedal, in my opinion. My only complaint on that one is that my Mesa Boogie absolutely hates it (while not having any issues with the OCD) so you may want to try it into the same kind of amp that you normally play through before committing. (works great with a PRS Sweet 16 and a Fender Hot Rod)

Yes, it's great. I liked it so much I sent one to my son to use on his projects.

They're different, of course...both very useful.

Either a Klon clone or a Keeley T.M.B to goose an already crunchy/ driven amp.

Right now...visual sound Rt. 66, voodoo labs sparkle drive, bogner ecstasy blue. I'll probably pick up an exctasy red at some point.

My Klon RULES.

01-24-2013, 04:42 PM
Marshall Bluesbreaker II and GFS Greenie Classic Overdrive. Love them both. Got a Big Muff fuzz pedal but I rarely use it.

Mojo Hand FX Rook.. Discovered it by seeing it on Brad Whitford's board.

It's like having the best TS-808 type (Landgraff, etc), a Klon, and a Tim all in one pedal. It is extremely versatile and very musical.

If I have to pick one...it would be my JHS Klone....it's perfect for goosing an amp just right!

01-30-2013, 09:18 PM
Ibanez TS-808 reissue, love it.

01-30-2013, 09:54 PM
I have quite a few OD pedals. My long-time favorite is my Zendrive 2. I've been reading up and watching videos on the various Tonebender clones. I'm going to try one of those before long.

01-30-2013, 10:01 PM
I've been going through many OD's. Got a green Timmy today! But nothing is topping my Analogman Silver Mod OD9 + Lovepedal Amp Eleven combo.

Still want to try Zendrive, Dumkudo, and the KOT.

01-30-2013, 10:10 PM
I have been favoring my Lovepedal Kanji as of late. I also use a Fulltone Fulldrive 2 every now and then

01-30-2013, 10:16 PM
Ethos Overdrive with classic/tle switch, Ibanez TS808, Hughes and kettner MKII Rotosphere, and an Octavian.

Keeley TS-8 Mod Plus w/ tru bypass and a Lovepedal Kalamazoo gold. Melds well with both my Boogie and Super Dallas.

01-31-2013, 11:25 AM
Currently using a Maxon OD-808, and a Fulltone OCD.

01-31-2013, 07:08 PM
OCD and a Lovepedal Kalamazoo Gold. I have a Fuchs Plush Drive as well, but haven't really bonded with it yet.

01-31-2013, 07:18 PM
Boss SD-1 for crunch, Chandler Tube Driver for leads.
