I have! Hahaha! Curiosity got the best of me with these Mooer pedals and comparing them with the originals. Generally, I can say that their drive pedals can get close to the originals in terms of overall sound. Flex Boost is based on the Xotic AC Booster.

Between the three famous Xotic pedals (RC, AC, BB), I still liked the BB Preamp best with the AC Booster in close second (I just hate the yellow color). The AC Booster sounds super creamy. The RC Booster was nice but later on I learned that I'm not a "clean boost" type of guy. I like my overdrives with a handful of gain.  :lol:

SAME! hahaha I needed that grit flavor from the FLEX that the PURE boost couldn't provide hahaha. I like how it reacts to the volume knob and your playing/strumming hahaha wanted to get rid of this for a TSmini, but after a brief bonding period, I chose for it to stay hahaha

Medyo OT pero hindi masyado (dahil tungkol sa ODs/drive pedals pa rin):


Mga sir/maam, I have these three drive pedals:
1. Boss BD-2 (Keeley Phat Mod)
2. Boss SD-1 (Keeley 5-Star Ge Mod)
3. Xotic SL Drive

If you had them, how would you arrange them?

Kasi ako, ganito:

Guitar -> SD1 -> SL Drive -> BD2 -> Amp

I'm wondering if you have any other ideas that may inspire me in stacking these pedals.

my idea of stacking starts from highest gain to lowest gain. Pedal with highest gain gives the overall tone, pedal with the lowest gain gives the over all volume.

e.g. (my setup) Big muff > Super Blues pro > Soul food > amp
Sa pinipig, bukod sa pwede mo singhutin, pwede mo rin tikman.

depende sa hinahanap mong tunog brother. I do it both ways, depending on the need.

I used to have a setup like this:
Guitar > British Distortion > Transparent OD > Amp

nico is right. the flavor come from the first dirt in the chain, and then the lower gain dirt will give the over all volume/eq shaping options.

now, I have mine setup like this:

guitar > TS9 > DLS MKiii > Amp

reason being the TS9 just pushes that DLS to sweet ecstacy. might be because the DLS is a preamp and the TS9 is supposed to be at its best in front of an amp.

in your case, try all options! and find the best sound per your taste!

I'd do it this way though.

SD1 > BD2 > SL Drive. the SL Drive is a Marshall in box hence I believe itll be best if its the last one in the dirt chain. unless you want to increase volume after the SL.
