    I switch up but I use a soldano GTO, a Klon Klone by On Floor Audio, and a Keeley Red Dirt; mainly. Those 3 sound great. I have a few other pedals I switch to once in a while to get some use out of 'em.

    I don't have a Marsshall, but I have two Marshall clones, and I use Sonic Edge Tumbleweed.

    If I want to "boost" the core tone, then I typically use one of my two master volumes:

    If I want to change/"boost" the core tone, then I hit a different mode.

    Simple.:)

    I have a lot of nice od pedals for boosting, however, right now I am using cheap joyo compressor on the front end and does a great job in goosing the front end and thightening up the palm mutes. It kills on fluid leads, hold a note for a minute. lol BTW, its very transpernt too.

    Xotic RC Booster to start, then if more is needed I add the Xotic AC Booster and lastly the Xotic BB Preamp.

    I know it sounds stupid, but into a Ceriatone 1968 Super Lead Plexi, the RC is always on, and then I add the other two, either alone or together depending on what I need.

    Oddly enough, it does not squeal and cleans up nicely when guitar volume is turned down, when all three are on, but not as clean as with "just" the RC on...obviously.

    Hey, I don't claim to know what I am doing, but it sounds great and works for me.

    Boosting with 1 TS 808HW and 1 TS 808 DX and a MXR compressor, all do the job very well.
