I have both. For modern rock/metal Triple Wreck won hands down! Dr. Boogie is fun, but there's just something about the voicing, that doesn't do it for me...

Regarding versatility, I keep a Triple Wreck clone to compare against every extreme distortion build, because it was able to match the tone of every high-gainer I tried.
I wonder how a Dr. Boogie with Triple Wreck tone circuit would sound, though.

I agree up until the last part.. there's something about the triple wreck that doesn't do it for me.. too saturated. the doctor has more grit IMO... all ddepends what sound you're chasing I guess...

Build em both and judge for yourself!

I haven't built a Boogie, but I did do a Triple Wreck based on the layout at SabroTone. It sounded great on its own, but never made it past one song during practice with the rest of my band.

If you're looking for versatility in a high gain pedal the Triple Wreck has definitely got it, I think it was just a bit much in the gain department (even at low settings) for my tonal needs.

I've build both. Triple wreck have more low end , but the boogey is more grit and dynamic. Boogey is fun because you can combine the jfet on gain stage.
this is my boogey, direct to pc, low medium gain and cab emulated after. https://app.box.com/s/ervmks5pgs6d5659gpf9t21jh6a274j2
