    Suggestions for a new pedal that is funky, weird, or off the grid

    My go-to for weirdness is usually a PLL of some sort. EQD's Data Corruptor or Elta Music's PLL-4046. Or perhaps something Synthy like a C4 or Future Impact (don't think I've heard this one on guitar) could open some new worlds for you. I don't have much experience with them, but looks nearly...

    VU Meter for pedalboard?

    Dr. Scientist Spectrum Analyzer Something like this? Their BoostBot is a single-meter that also acts as a gain boost if desired.

    Refugees from TalkBass

    Greetings. Former TB moderator here, but I fell out of regular use a few years ago as I moved more of my time over to TGP. I've been browsing TB a bit more regularly in recent months, and hate to hear that nightmare that I'm sure Paul and John and the rest of the Admin team is dealing with.

    Spaceman Effects Aurora Analog Flanger

    A bit disappointed in the colors, but I ordered from Spaceman because I've been wanting to pick up a t-shirt from them anyways.

    Spaceman Effects Aurora Analog Flanger

    I put the blue in my cart but didn't pull the trigger yet and now the 3 CME showed are all sold. I might like that red better, anyhow, and it will match the other red Spaceman pedals I have. I'll wait and see what Spaceman's listings look like.

    Spaceman Effects Aurora Analog Flanger

    Well damn. I've been looking at flangers for a dedicated bass board, so this may end that search.

    Favorite Pedal for Each Effect Type

    I would normally defer to multi-units like the Nemesis, Collider, MD-500, etc, but wanted to limit my choices to standalone pedals. This was a lot tougher than I thought. Overdrive: Wampler Paisley Drive Distortion: Boss DS-1 Fuzz: Spaceman Spacerocket Delay: Greer Black Tiger Reverb: Gurus...

    Recommend me a clean tube preamp pedal

    Sushi Box FX's Particle Accelerator would likely fit the bill. Based on the Alembic F-2B, which is the front end of the Fender Bandmaster.

    Sushi Box Fx

    I was waiting until the London Underground came in before fully committing to the May build slots. It showed up about 2 hours ago, and dammit, now you're going to have to take my money. I'll have to watch TB a bit closer, as well, for updates on the SBVT and Gondwana.

    Collision Devices Black Hole Symmetry - First pedal to get me interested in a while...

    I just did a VERY rudimentary test (not into DAW, only using my phone's stopwatch), but I did find it in the 600ms range. Not a concern for me as I've never maxed the delay time, but I could see that being an issue for some.

    Sushi Box Fx

    @Sushi Box FX, please let us know here when the next round of ordering opens up. I don’t frequent TB much anymore, so don’t see the regular updates there in real time, but want to place at least two orders soon.

    How many of you rockers gig with a big rig like an SVT Classic?

    God, I miss the big-rig gigs. My main big rig was a 12-space rack including two preamps being A/B'ed into 400 tube watts pushing 3x Mesa & 1x SWR or Ashdown cab. Now it's pretty much all direct.
