Me, I'm in the process of completely redoing my board. I had been using a really small board (the smallest Temple, Solo), but have now got a VoodooLab Dingbat Medium, to have more room. Currently, I've still got my MacGuffin dual overdrive (Klon, Bluesbreaker), Aquanet Chorus (CE-2 clone using NOS chips), and Phase 95. Also have a Function(FX) ClusterFuzz Micro. This month I've gotten a Wampler dB+ buffer/clean boost, an Ibanez Tube Screamer Mini, and the infamous Peterson Strobostomp HD.

Still need a delay and a reverb (or two), and possibly a new wah. Looking at the Crybaby Mini again, this time the 535q. I kinda want an octave effect too, ala MicroPOG, but want to give the new OC-5 a try, as it's supposedly really good.

I kinda want to upgrade to the AxeFx 3, but then I'll loose the ability to easily use this MFC-101 :lol:

Does that count as a pedal?

PM me when you're ready to upgrade, I wouldn't mind having that back. :lol:

Expression pedals with programmable LEDs for the option state. Eg: I'd like my EP-1 to light up when the Wah is engaged.

:lol: I guess? I was thinking more about the colorful things on the floor that bring joy.

I'd honestly like to see Strymon step up and make a multi-effect pedal with 2 loops and MIDI. Their own take on the G System / Boss MS3 / HX Effects to be used in 4CM. It probably won't happen anytime soon, but my preferred pedalboard is usually around something like that. The extra loop or two adds flexibility to add analog overdrives and delays, and that's just awesome.

Im trying to find a older memory man. I also want to find a real tape delay but that is more a dream at this point, not keen on spending that much on one effect but i have some searches saved on various sites and if one comes up for the right price i may pull the trigger (and have instant buyers remorse!)

I've been thinking of trying to solder some kits - there's a local company in Helsinki that has e.g. a Rat-kit with NOS parts, as well as some OD808 kits. Would be pretty cool to try it out.

I used to want one because of Guthrie Govan. But I honestly don't know how it's voiced or anything.
It's honestly been that long since I had mine I can't remember how it's voiced :lol: I just know it was a fucking killer pedal the responded beautifully, and the switchable Q for the midboost function was a brilliant touch. It's also relay switchable too, so I can swap it in and out with my HX Stomp.

I'm thinking about the Seymour Duncan power amp in a pedal. I've got a matrix I used with an axe fx, but since I'm using the atomic, ive added a diezel vh4 pedal, it seems to make more sense having a pedal board over a rack with fcb1010

Maybe this year I get an MC8, but with the way work is going I'm not holding my breath :lol:.

Now that I've upped my online guitar community cred by getting a sweet vintage Rat, I'm in the process of building a clone of a ThorpyFX Fallout Cloud, which is basically a more flexible Big Muff.

I love fuzz, but not just straight-up into a clean amp. I like using it in conjunction with high gain (i.e. putting a fuzz pedal in the front of a high gain amp, but with low fuzz settings, almost like an overdrive) in order to get a thicker, more lo-fi tone for certain textures.

This is all well and good but most fuzzes (Big Muffs especially) can't do this because they're so bassy and scooped. It just makes your amp shit the bed. You have to run an EQ after, or before, or run an OD in line with it or something.

The Fallout Cloud has bass and treble controls on it, and it's altogether smoother and more amp-friendly than a classic fuzz. You can really dial it in for your set-up, and it enables you to get all kinds of fuzz tones, not just Big Muff types.

I'm perfectly content with my HX Stomp when it comes to recording, but lately I've been going down the pedal road more and more for just jamming. The cheapskate in me is taking a hard look at Donner and Behringer stuff right now - I love my Donner Gate - absolutely can't beat it for $30 and I love how it can go from hard gate to smooth with just a toggle flip. But if money were no object, I'd grab a Strymon Sunset in a heartbeat. And, possibly one or more of the pre-amp pedals I see on YT so often these days...

A Skyhammer and/or Meatsmoke in the pedal variant is on my short list this year.

:beard: All the doom. All of it.

The Meatsmoke amp is the most overkill, unruly thing I've ever heard in my life. If the pedal even captures a snippet of it, that's amazing.

maybe a delay and reverb finally.:lol: I'd also love to pickup some other modulation type effect but I'm not sure which. it'll probably end up being a chorus or flanger. I just ordered a new head and cab but it won't be here til February. I have a pedalboard going but there's not much on it. Just a wah, SD-1, couple graphic EQs and a tuner.

I'm pretty much pedal'd out. :lol: I have a Strymon Timeline in the loop, a TS808 kit pedal I built mostly just to have something to take to blues jams, back when people went places, and some sort of TC Electronics looper I just bought from Chris that I haven't bothered to even take out of the box yet, just because a dedicated looper is fun. I also have a couple wahs that mostly gather dust, and a volume pedal that does the same, come to think of it.

2021 purchases will likely just be more mic preamps, if anything, but even then that's not really a desperate need - the BAE's fucking kill on electric guitars and direct bass, and I'm realy happy with the CAPIs on acoustic, and that's about all I routinely track. Maybe something a little more tailored to vocals, just to have in the rack, but that's an awfully wide range of what that could be.
