Need some thoughts on a final dirt pedal
So I've recently trimmed my board down a bit, focusing around the two distortion pedals I've been using the most.
They are the Polish Love OD, and the Wounded Paw Attack Goat. Both are amazing pedals with distinct tones that don't overwhelm my natural tone. I've been through many other dirt pedals that are now sitting by the way side - Prunes & Custard, Jekyl & Hyde, Bass Big Muff, Sparkledrive, Geiger Counter, Swollen Pickle, Rustride, and probably a few others I've forgot.
So I'm wondering, what have I missed out on? The sound I'm looking for is something that completes the natural progression of clean -> dynamic grit -> light fuzz -> ??? heavy-ass doom sound. That is to say, in a very dynamic band, I'm slowly turning on more pedals until all 3 are on at once, so I need something that plays well with other dirt and adds a final level of oomph without turning just into it's own sound as some fuzz pedals are apt to do.
A clean blend is probably useful here but not a dead-set requirement. Budget isn't really a concern - I don't really have $400 to drop on one pedal but I will spend whatever I need to get the right sound.
If it matters the rest of the chain is usually Stingay 5-string or Ric 4003 -> GK 800 -> NV-610.
edit: size would probably be a concern. Space is at a bit of a premium on my board.
