So, In getting my FIRST "basic pedalboard"? What do I need? I'm thinking of a tuner, a boost (?) for leads and accenting certain parts of my punk-stoner-doom-ish riffs...
A Can of Worms, I know... Where should I start?
I play mostly the dirty channel (B) of my Orange Thunderverb 50, which I'm pretty happy with, sometimes running both de A and B channels dirty... I'm happy with the amount of gain and "the tone" I get from the "amp alone". I just need a "boost" (?) to highlight certain parts. ""Tighten" it a bit? A "distortion/overdrive/fuzz" boost? A "clean boost"?
Also interested in some kind of modulation effects to add "texture and flavour" to the clean (?) parts. A Phaser!! A Delay!!! And a Chorus!
I guess to keep the maximum total costs at about $500, maybe a little more, I need to go and get "used". No problem! I'm also getting a Wah!
Also, please include your tips on the needed "compact pedalboard" itself, power supply and patch cables. The whole works! This will be gigged! Portability, reliability and sturdiness is a must!
Let's keep this simple and LEAN, but top-notch quality.
Please post you favorite recommendations ands state brand/model. I'll take the research from there.
Any help and thoughts welcomed. Thanks in advance!
Definitely start with a boost. A maxon od808 or Ibanez TS9 would be just fine and you can find plenty for cheap on the used market. A chorus is great for clean and even dirty parts. Since Ive only used one my entire life (boss ce-3), its hard for me to recommend you a pedal. However, I have been eying the CE-2 reissue. A delay can add some layering and is awesome for leads. Im quite happy with my MXR carbon copy.
