    I took the clipping diodes out of a metal zone and used it as a boost. Semi-parametric boost pedal!

    Also got some cool tones stacking a OS2 and MZ2.

    I occasionally run an MXR Baddass Modified OD into a Fuchs Plush Drive. I like the Fuchs by itself when I'm playing a Tele but both together is a lot of fun.

    I love stacking/cascading drive pedals. Probably due to all the random gigs/jams/sessions where I either have to plug into a 1 channel amp, or channels 2/3 on my 5153 are overkill.

    I'm usually having a Klon/Klone type drive that I have always on, just to give more shimmer on the clean but breaks when I hit a little harder. Then either any kind of drive/dist afterwards. One of my pedalboards has 3 drives for this reason: a J Rockett Archer Ikon > Free The Tone SOV custom > Fulltone Secret Freq. None are really super high gain and the first 2 aren't really set to high levels either, but put them all on and it's the land of blissful solo and sustain territory.

    During my rabbit hole tone searching I stacked pedals all the time. Anywhere from

    EQ->OD->EQ
    Boost->OD->EQ
    OD->OD->EQ

    Now I just record with a plugin an a custom IR. Back to writing and less rabbit hole. After I have a few songs completed Ill fine tune the tone.

    Also this was kind of Dime's philosophy with two EQ's (using them as boosts).

    It's all just gain-staging innit. I quite like the idea of using an EQ as a boost. Might try that. Sometimes OD's can be a bit cold and sterile.
    I thought Dime had the six-band EQ out front as a boost, and the ten-band in the loop for overall sculpting?

    Actually, I should do the same, as I've never tried my EQ pedal out front...

    EDIT: Scratch that! According to interviews various, you are indeed correct...
    "The greatest power one may possess -- in any situation -- is simply not to care what happens.

    "In fact, it's the only power, all others being a semblance and mockery of it. But you must also not care about possessing the power itself. So fuck it."

    Actually, Morbid Angel do this as well...

    Rat pedal as a boost, into an EQ as a second boost, then into a Marshall.
