    I think there are only a few true variations.

    Where is 11 Gauge when you need him?

    The analog waveform, by nature, is a continuous function, therefore the answer is that there are an infinite number of possible dirt pedals, only a few of which have actually been built. We wait on the remainder.

    Is this a trick question? Like "how long is a string?".

    I'm good with two, three tops. I lean to Electra-based circuits, not Klon or TS.

    In all seriousness, my opinion is that there are 5 circuits when it comes to dirt........
    -Tone Bender
    -Fuzz Face
    -Big Muff
    -Tube Screamer
    -RAT

    Too many for sure

    I like the Ews Brute Drive, does classic rock and dialled back does Dumble.
    Eric Gales sound, he can play.
