    Im using a TS-Mini. Works fine with my XL, but its helped out by the already mid heavy pick-ups.

    I'm using a Chase Bliss Brothers and/or Chase Bliss Condor, depending on the tone I'm looking for.

    boss metalzone. *I'm not joking* Gives it that extra bit of chunk and sludge that I can't achieve with my 30w amp vs my other amps.
    I'm also a big fan of using the behringer hm300 as basically a boost with just a hint of chainsaw instead ALLL CHAINSAW ALL THE TIME

    Maxon 808 all day. I tried the old protone bulb deluxe and the Horizon Devices, but that Maxon fucking roars in all the right ways.

    Earthquaker Plumes. I also have a Enos mini TS clone.

    The plumes is amazing. Tons of headroom and clarity.

    Depends on the amp; with my baritone-tuned guitars, I favor the Super Overdrive on anything Marshall-y and a Ghoul Screamer on anything Mesa-ish or 5150-ish.

    I had an MXR custom shop GT-OD that was awesome. I miss that pedal.

    Yeah, I don't think there's a one-sized-fits-all boost. That's kinda of the cool thing about them: you can find the one that works best with your specific amp/guitar/style.

    I'd recommend starting off with a tube-screamer variant, the Boss SD-1, the RAT, and the Grind/33 (which you already have). One of those probably will jump out at you as your personal favorite, and then it's easy enough to test some of the variants or subtle mods to really fine tune it if you're super OCD like most of us are, I guess. The vast majority of overdrive pedals are based on those designs, though there are enough exceptions (the OCD, the Metal Zone, DS-1, etc.) to drive you nuts and keep you flipping pedals 'til the end of time...

    I used to use a Digitech Bad Monkey, and it was really great for low tunings. It had low and high control rather than a single tone dial. I think it's a TS clone too.
