      I use a clean boost in the form of an MXR 10 band eq, and it's awesome...definitely an integral part of my rig

      For an OD boost I'd second the Bad Monkey, I've tried a handful of others, including some pricier models, and I just really dig the Bad Monkey's sound...

        I really need something to boost a single channel, no-fx loop amp for solos. I have a bad monkey, and it's definitely good at increasing saturation and coloring my overdrive tone, but not too great for a solo boost. I'm wondering what can work as a solo/volume boost in the front of an amp. Maybe it's just not possible, but how did they do it back in the day?

          If you go with a tubescreamer type boost, I havent heard anything better than the hardwire cm-2 OD. IMO, I couldnt tell the difference between the bad monkey and the maxon od808. The od9 sounds a bit better. But the hardwire blows them all away. (except this modded old ass tubescreamer that laura let me borrow...that thing was incredible). I have learned, however, that I have absolutely no use for an overdrive pedal in my rig lol.

                Are there any other good pedals that do both TS and clean boosts? I've heard some really nice results from both...and I would still prefer something with bass and treble controlls.

                  The hardwire has bass and treble controls, and you can tweak it to sound like a clean boost or a TS type boost.

                        Here, i will give you 3 possible candidates:

                        RC Booster
                        Keeley Katana

                        And last, and this will serve as both the best OD you will ever play and a Booster:

                        Paul Cochrane's Tim

                        If you feel you are not properly sedated
                        call 348 844 immediately
                        Failure to do so may result in prosecution for

                          you should check out the rc booster (you will probably leave it on all the time like I do), it just makes your amp sound better. I also have a Fulldrive 2, a Keeley modded blues driver, and an OCD on my pedalboard. They are set to different types of overdrive from vintage to modern. My amp is either a headstrong lil king head into a bogner OS 2x12 or a fender PRRI 1x10 with NOS tubes and a weber speaker upgrade. Just a good old school ACDC type rock sound in a low wattage package - mic it up through the pa and it sounds awesome.....

                            How can something like the CM-2 be like a clean boost? Can the TS, and RC Booster be clean also?
