    I'm making my final pedalboard (no one ever said)

    For dirt I'm torn between an Aguilar Agro and an EQD Plumes. I'm looking for a light overdrive as a second gain stage (for more growl in the chorus of a song).

    I like the transparency and natural sounding overdrive of the Agro. It does the "breaking up sound" very well but it seems to get lost more easy in a mix.

    The Plumes sound right in the mix (kinda transparant in my head, although it is a colored sounding pedal, but seems tot lack some sustain.

    I don't really hear the lost bass frequencies as some people experience. I guess I just like a sound with a good midrange.

    I'd like you settle on five pedals, so only one is gonna make it.

    I'd love you hear some insights and feedback from people who have experience with either one of these two pedals.

    Thanks in advance!
