I redid the pedalboard finally and started messing with the istomp. It looks like almost all of the models are free now(actually just the Adrian Belew pedal wasn't). Might be worth picking one up if anyone is on the fence

Re: Mandatory Pedals

A great clean Overdrive. For me, right now, it's the Satch Ice 9. I fell in love playing that pedal in front of a Fender clean amp.

Re: Mandatory Pedals

DoD or Ibanez Chorus, and some gain pedal like distortion or tube screamer. Flanger, Octaver, and wah are nice but not used that much by me.

Electro Harmonix Talking Pedal - GET ONE.

I love it. I use it to mimic my wife when I get in trouble and she yells at me.
Then she laughs, calls me an a-hole and leaves me alone.

I'm really surprised I like it as much as I do since it's not your traditional wah pedal.
But I love it.

How is the Ibanez Chorus? I've been considering getting one for awhile but I haven't heard any real opinions about it.

That's awesome. Make sure to mimic her calling you an a-hole too

Re: Mandatory Pedals

I still swear by a good OD in front of the amp.

Re: Mandatory Pedals

You can never have too many pedals, unless they become redundant. The old discontinued Boss HR-2 harmonist is a real cool, fun pedal. I enjoy mine for the clean channel, and it really broadens the overall sound. Also, a MXR Carbon Copy analog delay, MXR flanger or phase 90 never hurts either.

It also doesn't take up much space on your board...seriously, you should check out the EP Booster... http://www.xotic.us/effects/ep_booster/


I finally picked up an EP Booster, was going back and forth between that and a Catalinbread Super Chili Picoso but in the end I liked the sound of the EP a little better and my board is already mostly Catalinbread stuff

Congrats - excellent choice Cid! I was stomping on my EP last night at the weekly jam. I really love the EP as a clean boost but it seems a bit too loud for a solo boost...the sound is good but it's a bit too loud when I use it as a solo boost with a distortion pedal - even with the level knob all the way down.

Where did you put yours in your pedal chain? I have mine last...

Re: Mandatory Pedals

Haven't decided where it will go yet but I'm thinking first. From the demo videos I saw I liked the way it seemed to thicken up a clean tone so that's what I intend to do with it. Not so much increase the volume as fatten the tone up
