    If so, what’s it like?
    Does it turn to mush?

    I could see if you had 2 of them set to different settings and alternated between them , but a boost into a boost will over drive the second unit and unless you spent time to set it properly could turn to crap.

    I once had five delay pedals and decided to stack them all together... I hit an E chord ... Nothing happened ... Til four hours later ... sounded awesome ...

    My BB is pretty much an 'always on' pedal, unless I'm running it into a 5E3, and it gives me a nice lead boost. I have, on occasion, stacked it in from of a Barber Gain Changer (which can also act as a boost on it own--great low-med gain pedal!) into my SFDR -- perfect for my type of music (mainly alt country these days).

    If the two levels are set differently, it could work great though I would go with stacking two different pedals. If you have access to another Bad Bob or Treble Boost type pedal, you could see if it works for you before spending any cash.

    Bad Bob into a Bad Bob? Maybe two wrongs can make a right?!?

    when you stack pedals you are essentially additionally distorting the added harmonic distortion created in the first pedal which has already added to the complexity of the original signal. For years I ran a setup with 2 rats--the first set to mild crunch which was pretty much always on and then a solo boost and additional distortion from the second. Worked great.
