    I have never liked TS pedals, but I have never owned a Fender Amp. They sound terrible IMO on Marshall and Vox amps. Therefore I will take the BD and Tumnus.

    If I was playing a Fender Amp my answer could be different. That combination sounds great in videos.

    Depends what you use it for. Always on drive? 2nd channel for different sound? Boost for solos?

    Also, different amps work better with different pedals.

    All of these are good pedals that have their uses. It's really hard to recommend anything without more info.

    Without any other information from your end, then I’ll say it’s a Marshall and I’ll take the TS for a boost for my harder rock sound, and then the Tumnus after for the lead boost.

    Keeley modded TS9 and Tumnus is what I’d be keeping if it were my choice. Would be running the TS into the Tumnus. Ok now I can read the thread.

    I’d have no use for two mid-boosted ODs.

    So for me the BD2 is one keeper.

    If the Keeley TS has a stock toggle I’d keep that. If not, the Tumnus I guess.

    With my rig, BD-2 and/into TS would sound pretty good I bet.

    I see that you made your choice. And have a plumes instead of TS-9.

    I've never used the Boss Blues Driver-W. Almost bought a standard one once. But it lost the shoot out to a Klon clone.

    Not knowing amps or guitars or musical style it was hard to make a recommendation. But I would have gone with the TS and the clone. Your mileage obviously did vary.

    I like a ts9 for slide guitar, either of the other two could work for the other spot. But I’m a one od guy...right now that’s a Kelley red dirt, but that could change. If I did have two ods, one would be higher gain, probably an ocd

    I bought the Plumes because my modded TS9 isn't 100% reliable.

    Depending on where I show up the amp could be almost anything.

    I think I solved the problem by thinking outside the box...

    All of these pedals a tube screamerish style pedals. If stacking pedal I would go with the tumnus and TS-9. Tumnus first in order.
