    I'll get a JHS Morning Glory next week to end my infinite collection of boosts/ODs.

    Just a quick note on this topic. I just recently acquired a BOSS GE-7 seven band EQ pedal, and have been experimenting with it by placing it in front of my overdrives (e.g. tube screamer). WHOA, what a revelation! For example, need to tighten the bass? Just roll off 200 Hz and below. Want to bump up the mids for a solo? Increase the 800 and 1.6K Hz bands. Need a solo volume boost? Just increase the level and adjust the frequencies to taste. For boost applications, you can experiment with placing the EQ in your effects loop. Or just place it in your effects loop to shape the tone going to your power amp.

    Finally, need a quick acoustic simulator? Bump up the low and high frequencies and scoop the mids (works great with my Telecaster!).

    I'm thinking between Catalinbread Topanga or Surfy Bear DIY reverb.
