    Pedal suggestions?

    I just got my 6505+ back from guitar center repair, and I've been jamming the last few days. But I need 3 pedals to address the minor flaws, so I need a good noise suppressor, OD/ Tube screamer for tightness, and a good delay, all opinions appreciated! try to keep pedals below $200.

    Noise Suppressor: ISP Decimator ($130)
    OD: MXR Custom Badass Modified Overdrive ($90)
    Delay: TC Electronic Flashback ($170)

    Noise Gate: MXR Smartgate. Solid, cheap, dependable. I love mine for my 6505.

    OD/Boost: You don't need one. But if you must insist, a Digitech Bad Monkey is pretty solid. I have used an old Ibanez TS10 Tubescreamer - and keep one with me in case I have to run through a different amp that needs an extra kick (like a JCM). But I don't think you need one for the 6505. TS10's can be found on eBay for sensible prices.

    Delay: TC Electronic Nova Repeater. Nova Delay if you want more options. Solid, endless options, and it's hands down the best sounding delay short of an Eventide TimeFactor.

    ISP Decimator is an awesome noise supressor.

    As far as an OD there are tons of options. Any of the TS-9 variants work. Someone here in the forum reccomended the MXR Custom Badass Modified OD a few weeks ago, and it's pretty damn awesome.

    The Carbon Copy is a nice delay for leads as well. It might be a little noisy as it's analog, but I like it the sound.

    I run an ISR and I love it.

    I have an MXR Custom Comp, and I don't know if the thing is just fucked up, but it's been like this since the day I got it and I never got around to returning it.

    Stitch is wise. You don't need an OD with a 6505.

    As far as delays, I had this and it was re-fucking-diculously awesome.

    I'll say ISP for gate. Try and pick up a used TS7 for boost.

    For a noise gate, either the ISP Decimator or the ISP Decimator G String. The latter is over $200, but it's well worth it, as any owner will tell you.

    For an overdrive, honestly anything from a Bad Monkey ($40) to a TS9 ($120) to a Maxon OD808 ($150) or anything will be fine.

    For delay pedals, I recommend any of the TC stuff. I've tried all the TC delay pedals and owned the Nova Repeater and Nova Delay, all awesome, versatile, high quality delay pedals.
