    I know I'm a broken record here, but the Biyang Mouse/GFS Brownie Classic- A Rat clone with clipping modes- easy to use with a lot of range in all controls - "works" with the tone you already get from guitar>amp-does not replace it

    I picked up a Boss DS-1 recently and run it in front of my My Mesa/Boogie Rocket 44. Despite being almost universally despised on most guitar forums, the DS-1 totally gives me access to all those classic 80s Hard Rock tones ala Satriani, Vai, Sykes, Lynch, Jake E Lee etc! And it's fun to play through!

    I really like my Boss PowerStack. I mostly use it for a TB kind of sound but it can do classic rock really well too. The far right end of the Sound knob hasn't been super useful but it sounded good on YouTube videos.

    Really digging the Celestial Effects Cancer (as in the astrological sign) "Wah the Fuzz?" right now... quadruple pedal with a fixed wah, modded Octavia clone with switchable octave, Muff-ish fuzz with tone bypass, and one of their original overdrive designs with an additional 12ax7 gain stage. Got to try out a prototype at their factory a while back through a Super Reverb, and it was incendiary. I think they might be bringing it down to Summer NAMM.

    Yep; I have the Biyang version - it's a very smooth sounding dirt pedal. Really like mine!

    ^^ Wish the GFS Brownie were cool chrome like the Biyang, instead of the brown- but love this "Swiss-Army-Knife" distortion pedal!
