    Does anyone here, who use the Boss sd-1 for rhythm sound with VOX AC style amp or does anyone boosting (stacking) for about another drive or boost pedal with sd-1 for your rhythm?

    My gear is Boss sd-1-->MXR micro amp--> Rikstone H30M (vox ac30/Matchless dc30 circuit).

    My rhythm sound sounds this (short sound test), when both pedals are active and Amp is little bit overdrive itself (11 - 12 o'clock).
    My settings on pedals are:
    -Boss SD-1 volume full, tone 12 o'clock, no Drive
    -MXR micro amp gain 12 o'clock or little more.

    I personally play 60's/70's classic rock and blues as a rule.
    What kind of experiences and recommendations does the SD-1 pedal pair do?

    I also have a digitech bad monkey in the reserve and I'm getting the next few days visual sound Jekyll & Hyde for the test. Will the sound be better than any other, so it will probably be a matter of taste ;)

    I don't know if there are bad grammar errors when google translated this text too;) If it does, sorry.

    I’m not working with vox style amps at all but I have had great results running my sd-1 into a dod od250. A boss blues driver is also a good choice. Basically any open, flat mids type overdrive will work good after the sd-1.

    Took me a while to find the sweet spot, but I’m using a Timmy into a Bluesbreaker style pedal. BB for rhythm and the Timmy to push the mids for leads.

    Thank you! I have also considered boss blues driver bd-2, but I have not yet got to try.
