Was there supposed to be more at the end? I was waiting for a gif or something to appear.
If you had to take a fly rig which pedals would be on that board? Not a problem I’m likely to encounter, but I’d probably take:
Fairfield Circuitry the Accountant - one of my favorite compressors but also weirdly my favorite drive pedal for Fender-style guitars too.
Tech 21 Para Driver - I can probably EQ a back line amp the way I want with it. Lots of candidates for this task but this one is second-nature for me. And by second-nature I mean some days I cannot dial in anything I like no matter what.
Reverb pedal - doesn’t need to be fancy. I have one from Montreal called the Moby Depth, which is a Belton spring with some cool regeneration. But I also often just use a TC Electronic Skysurfer. It kind of sucks and the modes don’t really sound like what they’re supposed to be, but it has a lo-fi sound I dig. And it has a tone knob, which for me is indispensable.
With my Les Paul I might just need the reverb. It’s really hard for the neck pickup NOT to sound like itself, and it certainly needs no compression.
Hmm, not sure how I missed this earlier.
I was just kind of joking about my refusal to acknowledge I may have a gear acquisition problem. Very few have died as a result, so I'll probably just keep on keepin' on.
Pedals on the Fly Rig is a question nightmares are made of, but I'll take a stab.
My longtime favorite pedal is mentioned earlier in this thread and was designed and built by my amp tech, Lowell Hunt. It's called the 30-Volt by Freaking Sick Electronics. Huge Marshall in a box tone with tons of gain on tap that feels like a tube amp and responds brilliantly to the guitar's volume knob.
My second favorite just arrived. It's called the Anna by Wren and Cuff. It's two circuits in one, an Op-amp style fuzz and a soft-clipping drive with multiple clipping modes. Goes from light crunch to out of control fuzz your face off. So fun and versatile.
Boss CE-2W chorus. Just the best I've found for that sound. The Waza version edged my vintage one off the board just because it sounds the same but it's totally reliable. The CE-1 circuit is also in this and it's great too.
For delay I really like my Wampler Faux Tape Echo V1. Puts a really neat distortion on the repeats that sounds very realistic to the old tape echo units.
Last one I'll need is also a recent purchase. TC Electronic's Hall of Fame Reverb II. This is a stellar reverb for the money. All the modes you could want. True stereo output, and TC's really cool 'Mash' feature which can best be explained by listening. Super innovative stuff from those guys. The Tone Print feature is amazing too. Highly recommended.
It would be painful, but I think I could get through a show with just those pedals.
