i was thniking the other day about pedals, when i asked a question to mmyself. what if i could make the dream pedal board. It would have no boss, digitech, danelectro, behringer or even electro harmonix pedals in it. It Would instead have the best pedals from around the world, wether they be custom built treble boosters or evn tube screameers, only the highest quality accepted, and each of them almost unheard of. The idea is, instead of having the pedals that everybody uses, either having pedals nobody has heard of, pedals nobody can afford, or pedals that have beutiful construction, like geranium octave fuzz 's.

HELP ME OUT!!!

your suggestions for each of the following pedals.

Wah
Volume
Overdrive 1
Overdrive 2
Fuzz
Delay
Reverb
Chorus
Flange
Treble Booster
Octaver
Tremolo
Compressor

Thats all i can think of at the moment. get back to me.


AND REMEMBER THE GOLDEN RULE WITH PEDALS
The bigger the better.

Sorry, not trying to be arrogant. just trying to get away from the mainstream bands. yes i no they can be awesome, ive tried out the electric mistress. ive felt the pain of being five pounds short.


but why so many???? tone suckage?

no, wouldnt use all of them, just trying to accumulate opinions. just choose one you knkow to be insane and put it in. tone suckage also though. lol.

Lol at your concept.

EHX pedals are grade A, Boss's can be good as well. Danelectros make good pedals, when you look past the FAB and plsatic series.
Behringer also makes formidable clones.

Also, a dream pedalboard sohuldn't consist of every efect ever, it sohuld consist of what you need.

And lastly, by succombing to this ideal, you are just feeding into the boutique hype which shouldn't exist. :P

Also, bigger=/=better.



It would've been better to totally omit the first half of your post and just say you want pedals that no one else uses/knows about/can afford(why?).
HEY
Do you like anime/manga?
PM me about buying the graphic novels I'm trying to sell

How dare you badmouth Electro-Harmonix's good name??? They make awesome pedals and which are the choice of an uncountable number of pro musicians!

Goddamn you're an arrogant S.O.B.!

i dunno. im feeling extravagant.
#15
Goddamn you're an arrogant S.O.B.!

i no, im insufferable.
seriously guys dont take this to heart as iv said before, i love ehx sounds, im just looking for mad oddballs. also i own several behringer pedals, not a day goes past when im not thankful for my bogstandard but super efficent behringer dd100
#16
and i no bigger doesnt equal better, always, but because most companies selling cheap pedals dont make huge pedals with fifteen switches, twenty valves and a working lights show.
but the big ones do look quite cool dont they?
