These days, I like to keep my dirt section to a minimum. Right now I'm using a Fulltone OCD set to relatively low gain, and boosting a Black Arts Toneworks Pharoah Fuzz with it. This is all into an AC-30 set for light breakup.

i cut it down to two: mxr classic od to a little big muff. i used to have a turbo rat and foxx tone machine on the board before the muff. i did a lot of removal on my board recently, just for my own sanity.

Currently 3 (though technically 4). Boss SD-2 - "crunch" side as an always on semi-clean tone and the "lead" side as a heavier break up (gain on 0 and it's a pretty amp-ish), Dunlop hendrix octave fuzz (the older mxr sized one) and a V3 Big Muff.

Though i wouldn't mind something like a Foxx Tone Machine clone for something a little more fuzzy than Muff but with the octave on a footswitch (so yeah i'm looking at the Joyo ultimate octave), which can replace the Octave fuzz which doesn't get used for much more than creating dissonance.

Right now I don't have any fuzz or OD in my regular setup but I'm still looking for a nasty, companion-style fuzz.

Sleaze, how are you liking the Saltbooster? Kinda want one, trying to decide if it's worth the price over getting a new LBP-1 or building an SHO clone.

ive got a lpb-1 clone and it aint even in the same leauge as the mbm saltbooster. if you just want a boost with a bit of mids then get a lpb-1. you want some powerfull mid/treble boost then a saltbooster is un-beatable. lemmie give you a example as to how much boost it has.

i run mine at about 4 (or 9 o-clock if your old school) and it makes such a diffrence. its one of the few pedals i own i dont want to take off my board.

Nice, that's my setup a large majority of the time too- they all just go so well together. What kind of muff clone is it?
They tried to give me advice, down at the record shop. I said "Sit down boys, this may come as a SHOCK. But alls I listen to, it's all freedom rock."

Something I snagged off here a little while, apparently a Triangle clone? All I know is that I like how it sounds.

I used to use a green Sovtek Big Muff that I got in 1993, but it's really moody so I've stopped using it. I replaced it with a Wren & Cuff Tall Font Russian which I really like. I had also been using a Soundblox Multiwave Distortion, but decided I didn't really like it so I replaced it with two new pedals from Mooer Audio, a Green Mile Overdrive (TS clone) and Black Secret Distortion (Rat clone). I also use an Xotic Effects EP Booster. So I guess that makes four, the Muff, TS and Rat clones, and the boost.
