    Every thing gets too honky on Input 1 for my tastes so pedals go into input 2.

    I stack a BYOC Green Pony into a EH Turnip greens. Amp set to 6-7; GP Fat, LED, Drive at 1 O'clock; TG drive at about 10 or 11 O'clock. I used the green pony to boost the turnip greens. I roll the tone off my tele bridge and get some pretty snarly tones with out going deaf. If I just use one pedal I use the turnip greens because of the reverb and it is less honky than the Green Pony.

    J Rockett Monkey Man is fun if you want to sound completely cranked but it does not have much head room if you want to use it for the reverb. I usually just crank the gain and it makes it chug; at moderate gain settings it sounds a lot like the 5f1 on 12 with controllable volume. This also has a usable reverb and is nice if you just want to add a gain channel to a clean amp. The Monkey Man is very fuzzy but I think it sounds good into the Tweed.

    Bad Bob sounds great into a Tweed Princeton so i would expect similar results with a Champ

    I've also used my T Rex SoulMate in front of it. Has a TS Style OD plus a Rat style Distortion, a delay, reverb, and clean boost, all in one box. Lots of options.

    The other thing I use if called for is an Auto Wah. I have the Boss AW-3, but think a Mutron, Trutron or Micro-tron is the real deal for an envelope follower. I'm looking seriously at the Micro-Tron IV, though I realize I don't use one enough to justify it.

    All this time I thought there was something wrong with me...that I was some kind of weirdo. But I'm not alone!

    Ok, there are a lot of things wrong with me...and I'm probably a weirdo...but I'm still not alone!

    After reading this thread I started messing around with a few OD pedals into my Muchxs Morpheus which has a Champ setting on it. Of course it sounds best when I crank it up but I usually have to keep the volume at about 3 in order to keep my marriage intact. I found the Joyo American Sound, Timmy, Gain Changer, Wampler Black 65 and a Catalinbread SFT all sound great for low volume playing. I also plugged into input 2.
