Soul Food vs Archer vs Kalamazoo - Which will the Captain Pick?

I am going to have to go with the Love Pedal.
Over the years Lee's playing has improved quite a bit.
I remember when I first started watching their vids.

I don't know which one someone else would pick, but I'd go with the Archer. Rocket pedals made the recent Klons. Obviously they have a handle on the correct design. They all sound pretty good, though.

I bought an Archer about 6 weeks ago and I love it. Great for the fat clean and edge modes on my Mark V, and to boost my AC-30. Just adds a nice bit of drive that I can still roll off with the volume knob as needed. Never tried the other two, but they sound good as well.

I like the softer fuzzy tone of the kalamazoo. But I like the nasal tone of the soul food, plus it has some bit.

The archer is a little too sharp or harsh for my taste.

I like high end and lots of it, so Archer. It's more true to a real Klon, which is bright. I'm also known for running treble on 10 with the bright switch on a Blackface Fender, so I am biased.

Try a joyo JF-02 Ultimate Drive - it's a Fulltone OCD copy. Great sound. See YouTube reviews

Just bought the soul food this week great as a clean boost. Bought the archer in January of this year returned it after a few days, just didn't like it at all.

To me the Soul Food sounds better when the amp is just starting to break up vs clean. I don't love my Soul Food into a completely clean amp. Through my Vox AC4C1 it's amazing. I set the amp on the verge of breaking up so if I pick soft I get a nice chimey clean but if I dig in I get a nice overdrive from the amp. With the Soul Food in front it with the Vol at noon and Drive at 1 o'clock it pushes the amp enough to get a mix of the pedal and amps drive and sounds amazing. Especially with P90s.

I don't use pedals very often. But my favorite overdrives are my Zendrive 2 and my King of Tone. I do have a Soul Food that I picked up to see what all the Klon fuss is about. That's a pretty cool pedal for $60.
