    I have a double Timmy on the board already, so I’m down to a zendrive, a zvex box of rock, or a Cbread DLS. Zendrive and BofR are vastly simpler but it seems the DLS is made for exactly this purpose.

    I’m playing through a hopped up 35watt Princeton reverb with a 12. I’m leaning towards putting a lower gain Marshall style overdrive in between the fuzz and the amp. Again, never played through a fuzz so I’m really taking a guess as to what will work well.

    You can nicely shape the tone of the fuzz with a Boss GE-7.
    Or you get a TC Mojo Mojo which you can use as a Boost or OD)

    I can’t find schematics for either of those, but the MM always struck me as Marshall territory, so I may be getting close with the DLS.

    My main fuzz, a Skreddy Rover Fuzz (Tone Bender MkII circuit), goes into a Whirlwind phaser. Next in chain is an always on JHS MG into an Archer.

    treble boosters like the rangemaster
    ring modulators like the green ringer
    octavers like the jonny octave
    sub octave like the parasit u-235
    crossover distortion like the zvex machine

    Clean boost, switchable so it can be before or after the Fuzz.

    The latter Is probably the easier and smarter move.

    Wich booster? Treble or full range? This Is the...
