    I have a dozen+ OD pedals. I only use 2 or 3 per gig, but rotate them because I like them all.

    Top of the list: Darkglass B7K or B7K Ultra for low-gain modern tones (sharp as an ice pick). Stacks beautifully with other ODs for medium/higher gain tones.

    For vintage low-gain tones I use either a Creation Audio Grizzly Bass or Damnation Audio MBD-1 (my newest acquisition).

    Medium gain: Darkglass Vintage Deluxe, Tech21 Leeds, Tech21 Oxford, Ashdown LoMenzo Hyperdrive

    Higher gain: VFE Triumvirate, Brimstone Audio Crossover Distortion 2

    Pedals that I use for low, medium, or high gain OD:
    Empress Multidrive
    Idiotbox Blower Box
    Damnation Audio MBD-1

    The smallsound/bigsound Mini and SolidGoldFX Beta DLX have replaced all my other pedals for low to high-gain overdrive. Both are incredibly versatile with their own strength: the Bias on the Mini acts like a voltage sag which interacts incredibly well with the gain structure and the Beta DLX offer a pedal-engaged pre-gain boost.

    Overdrive- smallsound/bigsound Mini & SolidGoldFX Beta DLX (can't decide which!)
    Distortion- Fuzzrocious Demon King
    Fuzz- Stomp Under Foot Green Russian
