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

boss MD2 with flat all the distortion and booster and full with tone...prety blusey and also the boss BD2...
MI-Audio tube zone :D

Imagine the tone here: RG2820 with Duncan Full Shred (b) and Jazz (n) -> Tube Zone -> '86 Fender Twin (the red knob one). Man, now I just wanna go home and jam!
Used to run a modded SD-1 in front of my GH50L, now I use an OCD @ 18v through my Holland Little Jimi.

Re- distortion boxes, I've tried a ton and only my monte allums modded DS-1 did the trick before the Satchurator launched. Used to own a modded MT-2 for metal but don't do much metal anymore. If I do, there's always the Uber Metal.
Well Im using a mesa Nomad 100 and to be honest the distortion does not cut it for metal in my opinion. So I use a boss Metal Core and it really sounds awesome. Gives you that crunch that the Nomad needs...

Lovin my Nomad its a great amp
