I get a kick out of using my MXR Phase 90--very subtly. It sucks a bit of tone, but its got a variety of usable sounds.
If you want to play live and have some muscle left after you gain up your OD pedal and still cut through....nothing beats a regular old FullDrive 2 (non Mosfet). OCD sounds killer by itself...not so much when the noise floor kicks up with the band (IMO of course). I've never heard a Fender sound so good when the band is playing. Then add Deluxe Memory Man ... just cause it sounds so good... with just a little warble dialed in... almost subliminal... and who gives a crap if its noisy...NOTHING else sounds like or as good as a DMM so what difference does it make? FD 2 / DMM + Fender as good as it gets IMO...an MXR (micro amp) Clean Boost is optional and unless you want a stupid killer/retro 60's fuzz ( Chicago Iron...there is nothing else....)
