Archer and Timmy or Archer and Boiling Point can be very good.

Brian Wampler has done a good video on this subject. Imagine the Pedal Show guys would have too.

"Dude knobs are a fucker to see". I'm sure I just said a JB thing there.
Older Mooer pedals had small black knobs with a wee notch that nobody could see. I used a touch of correction fluid in the notch. Failing that how about glow in the dark paint? Glow in the dark knob, not sure if JB loves or hates the idea.
After my visit to Chernobyl I had a glowing knob, would not trade again.

Mk 1 Catalinbread DLS is my main overdrive. I've also got a JB built 808 copy on my board. In the wings is an original 1974 mxr distortion +, a Boss overdrive and a Redwitch fuzzgod 2. Help me layer!

It's a Boss OS-2 btw. Actually a pretty good sounding unit.

I use a Treble Booster, nearly always on into my M13 into the Katana 100 212. I use the M13 Rat or Tubescreamer stacked with the TB for drive sounds, the Rat is awesome for eighties driven Marshall tones, sustain and feedback on demand, good fun.

All the time. Tim first then usually Zendrive, Eternity, BEOD or Honey Bee to follow depending on what I’m after. Tim usually on all the time as a base (occasionally including boost).

Edited now I know what it is.

Generally you go low gain into high gain.
Fuzz before overdrives sounds a bit naff. After though, it’s great.

DLS is a 'foundation' pedal. Put all your OD's in front of it. Pretend the DLS is a Marshall amp, set it up how you like then hit it with your other drives.
This will definitely work; Catalinbread guarantee it.

Yes I do it.

Current preference is OD into clean boost.

Using a Fulldrive 3 for this.

It comes pre stacked.
