What overdrive pedals do you use?

Hey guys just got a job working at Guitar Center and wanted some of your guys/gals opinions on what drive pedals you're using in front of your amp. I've gotten out of using pedals as my main distortion since getting my Mesa Nomad (which i LOVE!!!), and just wanted to know what pedals you've had good experience with. I've always loved the opinions I get on Jemsite, and just wanted to pass the knowledge onto other customers.

On a side note, my first paycheck is going towards the MXR Carbon Copy Delay!!! It is amazing in how clear and natural sounding it is.....

Take it easy

Current overdrives/distortions :

Marshall Guv'nor (Original version) : I have it set fairly tame, gives a nice bit of breakup to a clean channel or as a boost for other pedals

Satchurator : Sounds fantastic with the Guv'nor in front and the More switch OFF. Shame all the usable tones are within a small section of the tone control.

Line 6 Uber Metal : Massive walls of compressed metal tone, regardless of what guitar you plug into it. Not subtle but it does what it says on the tin.

Big Muff Pi : Bought it to see what the fuss was about. To my ears, it mostly sounds like a regular distortion (but with either a dying battery or a knackered speaker cab).

Metal Muff with Top Boost : Depends on your definition of "Metal" - think classic, lower gain sounds rather than Mesa saturation. Very adjustable tones, though, and the Top Boost cuts like a cutty thing.
