what are you trying to do? boost, focus and tighten up?

I'm guessing somethign tubescreamer-ish or sd1-ish, but i haven't tried them with the 6505. you probably don't need one with tons of options (since the regular ts circuit will do what you want) and you probably don't need to pay tons of money for the "real thing" (talking about the tubescreamer here). other than that, it's pretty much up to you, you shouldn't go too far wrong with any of them (I don't think the 820 is tubescreamer-based so probably avoid it).

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.

CMAT mods SIGNA drive . screamer circuit with a bunch more flexibility. actually the chip it uses is one of the most boutique, desireable screamer chips available (aside from the full replica versions which cost like 300 bucks....they have the real vintage screamer chip in em)

pretty much everything has the "proper" chip in them these days. my cheapo biyang did, and I think the joyos do too (but i haven't opened mine to look). it's only really ibanez which is pushing the "proper" chip thing (because it only fits it to the really expensive ones ) and other ueber-boutique guys operating on a similar ethically dubious (IMO) marketing strategy.

it's debatable how much difference the chip makes anyway. But if you do care, you certainly don't have to pay $$$$ to get a ts circuit with the "correct" chip.

Green Rhino has close to the most boost on a tube screamer I've tried; more than a green monkey, maybe around the same as a CM-2 if not less. More than a MXR badass OD. I'd pick that. Also has the most tonal flexibility of what you listed IMO. Similar flexibility would be a Seymour Duncan 805 (true 3 band EQ, a bit rare on tube screamers) but not as much gain.
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N, killswitch), Jackson RR5FR (TB6/Jazz, Drop C). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Boss PS-5, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof or Earthbound Audio Super Collider. Loop 1 into ISP Decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9, TC Spark Mini. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.

Thanks for the answer!

"boost, focus and tighten up?" Exactly . Making the gain to 0, and volume put on maximum...

So, the green rhino is the best pedal for that?

I haven't tried a Green Rhino but I sure like my MXR Custom Badass better than the TS-9 I had. As far as a boost goes, the 6505 doesn't really need any help getting more gain, the "boost" pedal is just to tighten and focus. The MXR does that, but it adds a little more "grind" and harmonic complexity than a typical TS-type pedal. I'm not talking about a huge difference, but you can hear it. For me, it gives a pleasing alternative to the standard 6505 + TS tone that everybody and their dog has done.

The Seymour Duncan 805 has active bass, mid and treble controls which cure the 'no bass, too many mids' problem many TSs have. Or you can leave them there, your choice.

What about MXR ZW44? Compare to the MXR GT-OD, Green rhino, SD805, maxon OD808?
Is any difference between the ZW44 overdrive and the ZW44 Berzerker?

(a) I haven't checked myself, but word on the net is that they're both basically the same (the zw and the gt-od i mean), but one of them (i forget which, try some googling) has a switch on the pcb to convert it to the other.

(b) I'm not sure.

i haven't shared that same experience. i am not a fan of the OCD (and yes i own one), it is certainly not what i would use for a boost, nor a standalone OD. if you mess with one enough you can make it work, but it doesn't play nicely with TS based pedals IMO.

OP i would look into a timmy. or a signa drive if you want ts based. another TS based pedal i really like is the MI audio blues pro, it isn't common, but it works great with my mesas.

My MXR CBM OD is a pedal I will never get rid of. Unless it breaks of course, but then I would get another one.

I hear it's based on a TS circuit (Green Rhino) but I couldn't say for sure. I just know "badass" is a good name for it.

yeah the badass is sd1-based I think.

granted, you could argue that the sd1 and ts aren't a million miles apart either. you could probably argue that the sd1 is a ts-style od.
