    Xotic RC Booster, BB Preamp and AC Booster. Absolutely love all three.

    Won't be popular but with my 2210 I always have a Blackstar Dual HT in front which can really tighten up the sound nicely without descending into dog rough metal tones. Plus, I waver between a good old Marshall BB2, (to me a diode clipper is a diode clipper pretty much), and my own SRPP design similar to the Muamp Okko Diablo, (with the Diablo's internet circuitry error corrected)! All different and all nice if used subtly for the classic 70s/80s rock I play.

    Sorry Groovenev, I'm not seeing anything in your post except what I wrote. Am I missing something?

    Friedman BE-OD works good with anything. Fender, Vox, Marshall. From slightly overdrive to MASSIVE warm gain (without the massive volume).

    OP here—I tried a bunch more ODs over the past month and settled on the Archer Rockaway as my go to. The 6 band eq is absolutely awesome. I also like the Angry Driver for wide range of great options and the Nux Rattler is a lot of fun for over the top Rat slash fuzz madness. Chase Secret Preamp is a bit noisy but still is usually always on if I’m playing a Marshall—it’s really like it was made for them.

    This is a triple circuit beast with a Friedman Buxum boost , Modified Klon OD , and Cleanish booster for good measure . It's still not wired yet ... on my list of things to get done soon . I built it for myself supposedly lol ...
    I'm still not sure what knob looks good on this pedal also ...

    I just got a Behringer TO800 ($24 US) recently and it's a great TS clone for cheap!

    Another Friedman BE-OD user here. I love the tone through my 800. It's my go to od but I'm also still in the honeymoon phase with my Boss DS-1.

    Well, despite my earlier post about the Source Audio L.A. Lady, I went for a 2nd hand BOSS BD-2 Blues Driver (one half of the Angry Driver).
    I have been thinking of setting up a simple pedalboard and am collecting a wish-list of 2nd hand pedals as they come into my LGS. May have them all by this time next year!
