    Hi Guys,
    Recently acquired a 68 Custom Princeton RI.
    I obviously am not a high gain player or I would have this amp.
    I do, however, require some "balls" here and there for guitar parts/licks/solo's.
    What are some good, trusted OD pedals.

    Cheers fine Telecaster peeps!

    I don’t think you can go wrong with a B.B. Preamp, MHP 72 Degrees or Timmy, and maybe a plain old Tube Screamer.

    What context?

    Home?

    Live? How many elements? How busy/crowded mix?

    In a vacuum:
    - Boss SD-1w if you need to cut through
    - Boss BD-2w if you don’t and want clear, stinging, dynamic gain
    - Boss DS-1 if you don't, and want early Plexi to lower gain JCM800.

    Good questions...I think I'm leaning towards (2) different Tube screamers...1 Ibanez and one Maxon.

    I use a red llama (op amp?) with my 65 prri.

    For higher gain I'll boost it with a green rhino (modded tube screamer).

    Way huge pedals go for reasonable prices on the used market.

    When my '73 SFPR was in working order a Tube Screamer (TS-5) did the job well. Well enough to get cranky neighbors to call the cops on me
