Here's a clip running the Tumnus with my rig.
Dry fist then boosted with my 4 current channels.
A little neck pickup high gain lead at the end.

Over the years I have discovered I am definitely a boost guy.

A nice clean boost in front of a mid/high gain amp gives me the tight chunk I like.

A few mods have gone enough gain to emulate that (Jaded Faith's 1959 RR for example) but I like most of my modules/amps boosted.

For the the best mod ever produced by Randall is the 1987. Sounds great on it own. Incredible Marshall JCM 800 copypcat. Sounds even better boosted.

I have effectively 5 'boosts' on my board between two pedals.

CMATMODS Super Signa Drive (TS-style OD & clean boost)
VFE Merman (klone)

The pedals are side-by-side so I can step on the Merman & Signa boost in one stomp

They sound great into a JF 59RR in JMP mode set to just breakup for rhythm, and a JF ODS for lead. I don't use either through my clean channel. Not on all the time but will kick them in and out during the set, depending on how I'm feeling, the sound of the venue, if a section or song needs a bit more cut or grind.

This is how I figure I have 5 boosts between these two pedals
1. TS side of the Signa Drive. Good with neck single p/u for a hot bluesy tone on the 59RR. Pushes the 59RR into hard rock territory with a bridge bucker.
2. clean boost on Signa Drive. Pushes either channel harder
3. TS + clean together. Good for lead through the 59RR
4. Merman. Nice thick tone through either channel
5. Merman & Signa boost together. Another flavour for lead through the 59RR

I never use Merman + Signa TS as it gets too noisy. And Merman + Signa TS + Signa boost would be bedlam Wink

I used a Nova Drive and Muffuletta for overdrive > distortion > fuzz in front and dug the presets/routing on the TC and muff variations on the JHS.

Then I decided to take a trip down memory lane and picked up a Boss ME-5 to control the RM4 and Nova Drive. I use presets on the CS Compression Sustainer > OD OverDrive/DS Distortion > EQ and master for different boosts/compression/EQ in front of each mod.
