    I play everything from punk to post rock to ambient through this board. Sometimes I sub in a phaser or a plexi style od.

    Love those Moog pedals. I've been looking for a Drive V2 but it seems people have found out how awesome they are and the prices reflect that. How do you like the Moog boost?

    I also love the Moog pedals. I bought the boost recently just because it is a Moog and it was available. I don´t need another delay or else I would get the Delay. The Tremolo and Ring I can do without. I like the boost a lot. I tried to use it as a low-gain od at first but that didn´t work so well. The max gain is not enough without an expression pedal, which I have now ordered, but realize I don´t need. I changed the order of the pedals and I run the boost into the Drive now instead of the other way around. So the Drive is my low-gain drive and then when I kick on the boost it becomes a GREAT high-gain drive. I used to use the Drive alone as a high-gain drive, and for that it is AWESOME. In general, it is a great sounding pedal. So worth it if you can find one, trust me. For me with these pedals, Boost into Drive is the way to go. Alone, the Boost is just a nice volume boost, adds some thickness, good tone shaping, but not much else. It is my first boost pedal so I don´t really know what more to expect. But I do know that these two work perfectly together. Sorry, long answer to a short question. Thanks for commenting.

    That's what a boost does. I really like them because I prefer OD from my amp rather than a pedal, and the boost gives you another level of gain with some additional tone shaping too (or not). If you have a single channel amp, or one that doesn't have different footswitchable levels of gain it gives you that versatility to push the front of the amp into more OD. Combined with the clean up from the guitar's volume knob that's a huge variety of sounds from minimal equipment.

    That's a nice idea running the boost into the drive. I was amazed at how versatile that drive pedal is. At the moment I'm using a tube screamer basically as a boost pedal with the drive at 0 and volume dimed and that plumps up the tone a bit just gets the tubes to where they start to bark a bit. But yea as soon the Moog Drive is available at a decent price I'm going to add one on. The entire MF series is awesome. Cool to see them in use.

    Nonono!

    My apologies for coming off like that.
    Not provoked at all. I forgot to add the :smile:
    at the end. Sometimes I'm an a$$hole.

    When I build a pedalboard I always recommend a
    2 sided dirt pedal with a low gain side and a high gain side.
    (low gain side first). These can be set up any way you want.

    Low gain side as a clean boost.
    Low side as crunchy, high side screaming.
    Both sides different flavors of OD.
    Etc.

    The advantages are:
    There is never a compatibility problem with the 2 drives.
    They will always stack together well giving you 3 dirts,
    Side 1, side 2 and both sides stacked.
    You save pedalboard real estate.

    Wampler makes a bunch of these
    double OD pedals in different flavors.

    Hot Wired
    Dual Fusion
    Paisley Deluxe

    Wampler also make a load of 2 sided pedals with
    a dirt side and a clean boost side. So do other makers
    but I have always had good results with Wamplers
    and their customer support is excellent.

    (No, this is not a paid Wampler commercial.
    In fact, I don't like their delays or modulators.)

    I also recommend NOT going with a pre made board
    like a pedaltrain, gator, voodoo, etc. Pick your pedals,
    then go to home depot and buy a nice piece of poplar
    for $1.89. You have just saved over $100.00 and can
    now afford another pedal! Arrange the pedals and cut
    the board to the exact size you need. Perfect!
    Here are a couple of examples:

    Wahboard.jpg

    These will not do everything under the sun but will
    pretty much cover most live situations and are very
    load in and set up friendly. The top one is only 16.5 X 6
    and has 3 dirts, 3 modulations, 3 delays and 3 reverbs.
    The bottom one is not much bigger and adds a wah.

    I used this into the dirty and clean channels of a Mesa Electra Dyne head and Recto 2x12 or Trad 4x12.

    My current board for using with the Nextone at band practice.

    20190906_124839 (1024x498).jpg

    Crybaby mini > tuner > Foxrox Octron 3 > homemade silicon Tonebender > MXR flanger > Valeton FET preamp. There's a little DIY tap tempo switch down the end that works with the Nextone's footswitch.

    Heaps of good noises here. :thumb:
