    You hit the nail on the head with the ice dream anology.....like Baskin -Robbins 31 flavors. I have two different overdrives on my pedal board and the lead channel on my Boogie...chocolate, vanilla & stawberry.

    My biggest problem in finding an overdrive pedal was that I was listening to what people said, and didn't ask for what I was looking for, and truthfully, I wasn't entirely sure of what I was looking for.

    Several years back what I wanted was fuzz/distortion, sustain/compression, and a volume boost. A lot of pedals fit that bill, and I went through a lot of them trying to find the "right" one. After a while I figured out that I didn't want the compression and I wanted the fuzz/distortion to be more of an overdrive. In effect, I wanted a pedal that would sound like an EL-84 amp, controllable throughout it's gain stages and still sound natural and organic and dynamic to the natural point of saturation.

    There's a lot of stuff out there- I still haven't come across EXACTLY what I'm looking for, I guess the best bet is to have an idea of what you want and play with as much stuff as you can to know where you're going with it.

    The trial and error method of tone discovery?

    It is about the journey, isn't it? I'd prefer the journey with spending as little money as possible.

    That's called "nailing your tone with the guitar and amp alone" or, Angus Young.

    perfectly said. Yes, OD pedals are like ice cream. Now go to your local Ben & Jerry's and figure out which flavour you like best. Once you do that, ask them to modify the ingredients to better suit your taste buds

    Make mine a DS-1 with sprinkles and hot carmel?
