    I am looking for something coarse...that reminds one of sand between the teeth...

    Can you recommend something?

    It's a gray area but it sounds like you might for a distortion not an OD.

    Totally. Any Rat-based distortion box would do it, but I especially love the diode options with the MXR, which is essentially a less deluxe Cat Tail.

    An OCD variant would be something to check out as well.
  7. If you're looking for splattery, I'd try almost ANY dirt pedal with a voltage sag circuit (ie Starving the voltage to the circuit)
    Some power supplies do this, but there are pedals that have one built in too.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far!
    It is not an intensity but a texture thing.
    Sag; I have the Barbershop.
    I have a Rat 2 as well...might mod it...once I find out what exactly to do...and after having listened to it agin first.
