I agree there, but it seems love for the Rumble Mod isn't universal. And it definitely has its own unique thing going, separate from the Robben Ford fetishism that seems to come with other D-style pedals. And it's hard to dial in and not very gainy compared to some of the competition. That said, it IS the best OD pedal I've ever found for my tastes. For a somewhat more gainy sound with a Telecaster, I've become completely enamoured with the Skreddy Screwdriver. It's not at all a "D-style" pedal, but does the same sorts of things right, and it's incredibly flexible. In one band I'm in, I usually play all evening with nothing but a Tele, the Screwdriver, and an old Boogie amp.
