    Hey Guys.

    I'm looking for suggestion for a dual OD for Country,rockabilly and blues tones. Mostly into lower gain stuff and am currently using teles or Gretches into Blackface Style amps (Deluxe or Princetons ) I've been looking at the following.


    Browne Protein

    JHS Double Barrel V4

    Wampler Paisley Deluxe

    Keeley Tone Station OD with Compressor


    I'm currently using a Jrockett chicken soup and a CMAT Butah. I'm really pretty happy with thes two pedals but like most of us can't seem to leave well enough alone.thanks

    Depends on how much you want to spend, but the Jekyll and Hyde is low gain and pretty tried and true.

    I also like the Suhr Eclipse for more Marshally tones...

    Boss SD-2 might be a less expensive option to try.

    I've only heard the bottom three, and I own a Double-Barrel (bought used--$315 is a lot). I think any of those three would make you happy.

    I liked my Visual Sound Rt 66, though the compressor is ovbviously not a ‘drive’ as such, but it was good for goosing a tube amp when dialed in correctly. If you really need some hair on both channels, it probably won’t do it, but it has some charms.

    Happy Hunting

    I'm not familiar with any dual od's, but I'll complicate things anyway.

    You could check out a Fulldrive

    I also had a Danelectro Wasabi OD that was very useful, as an OD+boost, but it was even bigger than the RT66. I loaned it to a band mate who played untold gigs with it and loved it. Lg, heavy, and very solid feeling. Again, not 2 ODs, but a nice pedal.

    If you think the OD/Boost might solve your problems, MXR makes one that’s CAE (Bob Bradshaw, right?).branded...much smaller than the Dano or Rt 66.

    Truetone VS-XO, perhaps?

    Concur on the TrueTone/Visual Sound recommendations.

    Have gigged both the Jekyll & Hyde (tubescreamer type + marshall bluesbreaker type) and Route 66 (tubescreamer type + ross? compressor type). They are great with the J&H providing more crunch/distortion options if needed. I have the old awkwardly shaped ("home plate") versions, but the latest versions are rectangular so probably easier on pedal board logistics.

    Thanks Guys. I had a used VSXO . I liked the Nobels side but the tube screamer side never sounded that great to me.
    Could've been something wrong with it as I did by used.

    Owned one and foolishly sold it. Currently back on the wait list. Thanks

    I have a T-Rex Alberta II on my backup-board. Light breakup-tone on one channel and a crunchy rocksound on the second channel. Both channels work nicely when stacked with my amp-crunch-channel or with a fuzz. I you want more gain, you should check out the T-Rex Mudhoney II.
