    Technically speaking, on a desert island you are going to want pedals with AC -as how many batteries do you plan on bringing nd how long with they last?

    With AC, you can Giligan Island with a jungle dynamo generator setup using waterfall, waves, trees in wind, exercise bike lol that naturally produces AC

    People -you gotta think harder!

    Right now I'm thinking about a hotrodded Blues Driver/Tubescreamer combo. I've got quite a few potential mods lined up, but I'm also considering doing something less obvious, like maybe a Bluesbreaker/OCD combo.

    What's your thoughts?
    Interesting that distortions are not being considered since I consider the OCD a distortion because it has hard clipping.

    I mostly meant to disclude over the top styles of distortion. This pedal is going to be a more subtle overdrive, but I have considered an OCD/Ratt combo in the past. I'll probably consider it again too.
    Once I had myself a million, now I've only got a dime.
    Difference don't seem quite as bad today.
    With a nickel or a million I was searchin' all the time
    For something that I never lost or left behind.

    Fulltone pedals work really good with my equipment.
    My set up would probably be:

    Full Drive 2 ----> OCD ----> Amp
    That is not dead which can eternal lie,
    And with strange aeons even death may die.
