Let me just get this out of my system. We all know we want to post a listing of our current pedal set-ups and to see what other people are using. We all just need to remember the two major sins associated with this kind of posting (pride and covetousness) and lay our hearts out before the Lord so He can remind us that our value and purpose in life is not informed by effects pedals. Once we move beyond that I think this kind of discussion thread can be fun and educational.
My current board set up looks like this:
Guitar --TC Helicon Harmony G XT --Boss Noise Supres ---Digitech TimeBender Delay--EH Cathedral
V ^ V
EH Soul Preacher Boss Power Wah Egnater Renegade 65
VL Sparkle Drive --- EH Nano Stone Phase
Hope that is not confusing.
A Timeline too? Or will it replace the Eventide? Just a suggestion, but what about an Orange Squeeze type compressor. Have you ever played one?
I'd definately like to upgrade by compressor. Haven't played an Orange Squeeze. Is that a JHS pedal? I would like to add the Timeline but also keep the Eventide. The Timeline obviously does some cool stuff that the Eventide doesn't do, but the dual delay on the Eventide is so awesome I don't know if I'll ever part with it. Besides, my T1M looper includes a bank up and down and a tap for the Eventide, so if I got rid of it, part of my looper would be useless anyway.
The orange squeeze is actually a type of compressor originally designed by Dan Armstrong. It's very "effecty" - energetic and bouncy which makes it nice for chord picking and arpeggios etc. Some folks describe it as a dip and swell. It's not quite pumping but a predictable thing that can work wonders for a rhythmic technique. Pedal Doctor makes one as do Hartman and Nick Greer.( There are more.) I have the Hartman and it really does the job for certain things.
Some folks are really into delay stuff - I guess you're one of them. The most I do with a delay is some David Gilmour type repeats but mostly slapback.
And I'm seeing two pedals that have interested me in the past - the Signa and the OCD. But now that I have a Jetter Red Squared, I'm more interested in a Wampler Paisley drive. Ever heard it?
I've heard of the Wampler not of the other. I would say that I "like" my OCD, but I'm not too attached to it. My Signa on the other hand, I really love. I think I'll probably hang onto that one for a while. I've not had a chance to play though too much of the more boutique stuff since you cant really find it anywhere without buying it first.
Yea, you do have to rely on samples and Youtube for most of it. Of all the pedals, overdrives are the hardest to get a feel for without playing them. That's how I came to own a Jetter. I was all set to buy a Barber until I played several.
Well done sir. Your board is most impressive. Why don't you sell me your Micro Pog?!
