My current setup:

Polytune
Microamp
OCD V4 (Main Dirt)
NS-2
Flashback x4
Mini HOF

I use a microamp first in my chain to add a little gain, just to break my clean very slightly. The OCD provides my main distorted/dirty tone.
What would make a decent boost pedal after the OCD to give me an overall volume boost for leads? A second Microamp? Someone suggested a soulfood OD to add volume and a little extra gain?

I like to use MXR EQ. It not only gives a volume boost but allows you to shape the sound particularly for leads.

what amp and guitar are you using and what type of tone are you after?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Main guitar is a '72 custom tele with hot rail bridge. amp is a hot rod deville or the clean channel of whatever is there if we're supporting.

I'd say the bands sound is deaf havana meets lower than atlantis. So pretty loud, and a decent amount of gain. I play mostly chunky rhythm but a few tracks mean i play lead and just need that bit more to cut above the other guitar.

I'd suggest Voodoolab Sparkle Drive as it can do clean boost and maybe add little more grit if you want it/or not dial it in if you don't, or any eq pedal would do.

If you want some pleasant color maybe a FET boost pedal would work better. I think the co. that makes the Jekyll & Hyde has one.

ok thanks. the soul food will work either as a clean boost or a fairly high gain OD, but i'm not sure whether it'll get heavy enough for what you want. there have also been some complaints about EHX reliability.

(not trying to put you off, I have one )

something tubescreamery might be useful if you're playing lead and using a fendery amp a lot of the time. but again it won't be super-heavy, you'd need to use it in conjunction with another pedal to get heavier stuff.
