Hello, I recently bought a Peavey 6505+ 112, and as you all probably know, the cleans are nothing too special.

So I've been thinking about adding some sort of modulation pedal to pretty much run full time when I'm on that channel - chorus, maybe flange, phaser???

It's important to note that whatever I finally decide on, it will be tuned for a very subtle effect - just to enrich the clean sound, not so much for the "effect" - I hope that makes sense.

I've had choruses and flangers in the past, but I'm just not sure what I want, lol. I've even thought that maybe a good reverb pedal might do just the trick. Please discuss...

Definitely chorus IMO. Maybe a little delay or reverb as well. Maybe a compressor also depending on your style? You could also go for some kind of pitch shifter or octaver to thicken things up. It all depends.

+1 for the chorus and delay/reverb. I always have delay or reverb running with my clean channel.

Turn your pre and post all the way down and strum your guitar while turning up your post until you start to hear it. Then turn up your pre while strumming until it "opens up" (best way to describe it). Then put the post to taste (higher = better clean).


Cleans are fine. Roll back your volume on your guitar if they're not clean enough for you. Use the on amp reverb for a subtle niceness.

Chorus and delay help. From what I can tell you want a chorus pedal.
