I have in my dirt arsenal: - Klone - RAT - DOD 250 (TBP reissue) - Clinch-FX (not really dirt I guess) - OD-3 - Galaxie BD-2 - Timmy - Vintage LPB-1 (the kind you plug into the amp) - Nobels ODR-1 (reissue) Live, I use the Klone. It's on my small boards (I have two boards and Klones, one for each band). For small gigs where I don't bring the board, I default to the BD2 if I'm bringing an amp (middy) or the RAT if it's a Fender backline. Sometimes the Timmy if I'm unsure of the room (more EQ options - but never if it's a Fender backline). In each case I run the amp until it is clipping a bit and then the OD is at unity. I keep the LPB-1 in my gig bag just in case of board failure - I'll have something to "sweeten" the amp and it really needs volume (in my view) to shine. I exclusively use them as ODs (generally set low drive). The ones not used for gigging are for home practice at low volumes. Here again, at unity, but maybe the drive is run a bit higher to simulate the sustain and feel of a cooking amp. Here's the thing. They all sound GREAT. They all feel GREAT. They all sound slightly different I guess, and feel slightly different. Some work a little better than others with certain amps (my small, solid state practice amp LOVES the OD-3 with the gain at about 1 o'clock - unheard of territory for me). But overall, to me most quality ODs are more similar than they are different (unless they have an overt EQ or compression characteristic - like the TS family - which I no longer have). For some reason, I finally realized that none of the boutique flavors (or even vintage flavors) does it for me over any of these pedals. I try them, and don't even get a honeymoon anymore. And really it's like new pedal day relatively frequently, because I'll leave one on my practice amp for a few days/weeks, and then swap something else in. I feel like I don't use each of the above often enough as it is. But I can't bring myself to part with any of them (again - some I've owned two or even three times). I love looking at pedals and reading about them, but I realized over the weekend that Dirt pedal G.A.S. finally died. Or maybe petered out - the Hollow Men style. That is all. Edit - Feel free to razz me mercilessly when I post about a new dirt pedal, or when I buy one from one of you on a forum or the 'bay. Though at present I really don't see that happening.
