I've made a few threads on this but this should be the last one... sorry.

I'm making a compact and relatively simple pedalboard for a new band/recording project I'm doing- a Two piece 'Grunge' band playing originals.

I'd say my influences are mainly 90s and late 80s based such as Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, Husker Du and then bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains. However I'm a big RUSH fan and worship Lifeson's guitar playing and technique- notably his arpeggios and chorus tone.

So the basic idea is to combine that into an EP which I've mostly finished but I need to sort out my effects to prepare my tone for starting recording in April. (I'm gonna record the thing myself at home or a space with recording gear I'm already buying).

I've already got a few of the Pedals I want:

I need in total-

A drive (I've already bought a Dr Swamp V2 by T-Rex and have a Tubescreamer TS-808)

A Fuzz- Swollen Pickle

Delay- TC Flashback

Tuner- Boss

Then I hit a dead end.

I'm looking at probably needing a Reverb but I also want a Chorus and I'm only looking at around 70 quid left to spend.

I want a twinkly chorus sound like on 'Limelight' by RUSH and I don't know which one to get for a 'lush' sounding chorus pedal.

I'm playing a Gibson Les Paul or a Jagstang through a Micro Terror (I like it, don't hate on it).

You're not going to get much good with only 70 quid left ($107 USD). Reverbs and Delay can sound very much like a chorus if you have tonal modulation. I think a BOSS Reverb has that, as does the Flashback.

How about just a Boss Chorus Ensemble or Super Chrous then? Should get me some decent results even if not the best in the world

If you really want to settle, you can get the Danelectro Fab Chorus. It's fine for what it is. It's harder to go cheap on a reverb pedal.

I've actually already got it but I 'm looking at making a pedalboard to gig as well and it just doesn't stand up to heavy abuse- the jack on the back keeps faulting and so does the switch

that's what i was going to say. you can get the hardwires for around £70-£80 on thomann and they're pretty good, or for cheaper the regular digitech delay and reverb (i've only tried the delay) are probably pretty decent too.

analogue might sound a bit lusher but you're probably looking at more money for something decent. I've seen some good deals (£69 IIRC) on that vox double deca delay recently (which is analogue) but I haven't tried it and I think I've heard some people say it's a bit dark-sounding (which can be a concern, especially if you're used to digital delays).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

You can get a used Boss CH-1 for around $50 USD, so that's somewhere around £40.

Unless you want to take some shortcuts and find pedals with built in modulation effects. The HoF has a Mod setting, but that is beyond your £70 budget, even used.

I'd wait until you expand your budget. Then you could get more quality stuff and it would sound a ton better.
Well, you can call me crazy
You can call me wrong, 'cause

If you'll settle for flange, the Holy Grail has the "Flerb" setting.

Its a lil bigger than a pedal but is a used Quadraverb easy to find in your area? That would do a lot of things for you and they're dirt cheap. Just an idea.

I've got hold of a Boss CE3 from 1987, should get me Lifeson esc tones eg. The arpeggios in Limelight?

^ i think the ce3 is meant to be nice. I've liked the choruses i've tried which were based on the ce1 and ce2, but i haven't tried the originals (or the ce3 either).

nice score
