I have upgraded my stacked fuzz chain, with the slide tone of Ariel Posen, as a benchmark. I can get fairly close.
My chain is as follows:
Boss CP-1X compressor
Barbershop V2, boost
Green Rhino Mark II
Swollen Pickle Fuzz
Boss Octaver OC-2
Red Llama 25th
Diamond Counterpoint, long delay...
Boss CP-1X, compressor, in front of pedal chain, for electric and slide guitar.
The Boss Multi Dimensional Processing, MDP, is exceptional, especially, for slide and always on electric. It is low noise and makes your tone fuller with nice sparkling highs.
I still use my Diamond and Boss...
I used to be a horse trader type, until my son started playing in a band with me. I had to outfit him with a full pedalboard and it took most of my tradable pedals.
We have an agreement, not to get rid of any pedals, they are a family resource.
I have a Red Llama 25th and a Swollen Pickle Fuzz.
The RL25, is a Tweed type, that I use, like a Hudson Broadcast, always on.
The SPFUZZ, covers a lot of territory, from brown sound, Big Muff and fuzz. It works with humbuckers and single coils.
Boss Octaver OC-2, is a good combination with...
I took 4 years off guitar, after I discovered, I had a knack for drumming.
This opened up a new perspective, I was lucky to drum with some talented guitarists and I learned alot from them and my guitar playing, was better.
My timing and ability to hear the guitars, bass and the overall sound...
Ariel Posen, gig rig 2019, this video gave me some ideas:
I did a deep dive into my pedal box and set up a pedalboard:
Boss CP-1X, compressor
Barbershop V2, boost, toggle switch, right
Green Rhino Mark II, overdrive
Swollen Pickle Fuzz
Boss Octaver OC-2
Red Llama 25th, replace...
Boss CP-1X, for Studio type compression.
Barber Direct Drive, British clean articulate sound, works with Barber Gain Changer.
Barber Burn Unit EQ, singing lead tone.
Way Huge Green Rhino, sounds good with
Way Huge Red Llama 25th. Good clean, crunch and distortion.
Archer Ikon, boost.
Find a drummer, and they will come. Drummers are hard to find and will take a jam group, to the next level, of becoming a band.
Playing with a drummer, will improve your natural metronome and musical abilities and will offer stability, that will be attractive, drawing a bassist and other...
I recently picked up a Boss CP-1X, multiband compressor and it adjusts for each guitar you play, you don't have change, step on boosters, just play.
I ran my double humbucker Tele and my single coil Tele, back to back and it was seamless. It does a great job at compressing, making the tone...
I have recently, picked up a used Boss CP-1X, and found it to be an excellent compressor. It adapts to my various guitars and always sounds good.
I tried it after overdrives and prefer it to be first in chain. I run the CP-1X into a Barbershop V2, and have a lot of highs. It is amazing for...
I was experimenting, not trying for AC/DC sound, with a Boss CP-1X compressor, Barbershop V2 and Direct Drive V1, EQ'd, with a MXR 10 band EQ, at the amp for mids, and I was getting a nice tight crunch, without alot of gain.
This is my current board, with a Barbershop V2, 1st, and a Rat 2, set as a treble booster. I have swapped a Boss CP-1X, with a Diamond compressor. I am liking the CP-1X.
I rotate pedals on the board, Fat Sandwich, Mesa Throttle Box, Burn Unit EQ and Swollen Pickle.
Pedals are rig dependent, for guitar, pedal and amp, clean or break up.
Research is your best friend, generally, Marshall pedals don't work with Fender.
Watch videos, that are using your guitar and amp, if the pedal sounds good with a different guitar and amp, you may be disappointed.
I found a compressor, the Boss CP-1X, that is extremely complimentary, to the BSV2.
The CP-1X, is a multi band compressor, that uses AI, to retain the fundamental note and harmonic overtones and mix them so that all strings sound even. A studio compressor, for the pedalboard.
