I like my Wampler Brent Mason OD/Distortion
I can go from clean (no OD ) to sparkly/crunch to lead distortion and back again in one great sounding pedal
and those channels cascade and stack nicely
It's All I use lately
Works well with Single coil and Humbuckers, is clean, and is very versatile
I really like my V3 OCD. I have tons of overdrives, but the OCD just does what I want a drive to do!
The OCD is just a great pedal.

It's good stuff. Example: the Clyde wahs. Instead of using the standard zinc enclosure, Fulltone uses a custom steel one. That wouldn't be a big deal, except that the steel enclosure and the other parts used tend to minimize induced noise from nearby wall warts, etc. On a crowded pedal board, that makes a real difference - I know from experience with lots of other very good wahs! In a similar way, I find even the vintage style fuzzes quieter and less susceptible to RFI noise, and so on.
Makes a difference. This is stuff Fulltone pays attention to.
It sure makes a difference for me. Have a few more pedals to try before I decide. I could never make multi channel amps work for me, it would have to be something with an added boost or second (dual) OD. That plus volume knob adjustments can get you 4 or so stages from clean to lead. Perhaps a Paul C. Tim, JHS Double Barrel, Jam Pedals Tube Dreamer88, Analogman KOT...
Haven't tried as many OD pedals as the other guys, but I really like my Maxon OD808.
One of our own has his own signature pedal. Brent Mason plays his signature overdrive on all his recordings. Go to wampler.com and check out his videos on their site.
