I am looking to slim down my board and I currently have 4 OD pedals. Although the 4 pedals are not on my board at the same time I feel like I have to let some go. I have:

 

Maxon OD 808 - used to warm my OD channel on my Marshall and add sustain

Boss OD-3 - overall good OD pedal, adds grit or fatness to tone

Boss BD-2 - emphasizes the picking dynamics and adds gain or clarity

MXR Wylde OD - sounds great with the Marshall and my pinch harmonics scream.

 

I am not sure of which ones to get rid of. I use them all but I need to reduce my pedals.

 

I play harder rock and metal such as Metallica, OZZY, VH, Iron Maiden, etc.

 

What is your opinion. Thanks.

After a bit of testing I think that the Wylde will be saying goodbye. On my overdrive channel on my amp I get large amounts of feedback from the Wylde OD. I am thinking that the BD-2 may be following it. More testing to follow. Opinions also welcome.

I like the Wylde best out of the lot! A lot of people think it's bound to be crap because of the endorser but it's a great OD in its own right, works well into the dirty channel to add harmonics, or gives a great crunch into clean.

 

If you're getting feedback try turning the level or gain down.
