Men and Women of Mayhem, I have question regarding OD pedals and stacking them together.
Currently, I run a Stratocaster with hot rails into a tuner->boss ns-2->Maxon OD808->Radial Twin City->roadster and evh5150 as a stereo rig. I want to add another Maxon pedal and I am really looking at a OD 820 to either go before or after the 808. Has anyone stacked OD pedals before like this and what was the result?
From my experience, terrible noise. Now a compressor with an OD can be fun, but if I'm going to have two overdrives, I'm going to have two very different sounding overdrives to use for different applications. Having said that, there's really no wrong way to make music, so if you like the sound you get from two ODs, hey have fun. But I'd rather stack two of these than ODs:
