    So, a few months ago I decided id do a shake up gear-wise. I was starting a new band and this time im not the lead singer so i can put more focus on my guitar playing and so forth.
    I sold/traded the few pedals i had and my twin reverb. heres what i have/have coming very soon
    TopHat Super Deluxe 2x12 (arriving in the next week!)
    FDII
    modded Rat
    Booster
    Boss CE-2
    Marshall Tremelo (dont use tremelo much so havent looked to upgrade)
    Nova Delay

    Im waiting for a Tim to come, and my girlfriend was kind enough to buy me a zvex ringtone for my upcoming birthday (should have seen my face when she told me!:drool)

    So, seeing as I dont have my Tim yet im wondering what my drive needs will be?im guessing if i like the Tim i should be covered. maybe a fuzz?a reverb pedal?(Tophat doesnt have reverb)
    Im currently running the pedals I have from my TU-2....
    im guessing its not pretty to daisy chain 7-8 pedals,

    so any recommendations on a power supply and possibly 1 more pedal?
    what would you fit in there? the nova runs on 12v and has its own power supply so its probably not essential i can run that off a new power supply,but more convenient all the same.

    thank you!

    man, that two timer pedal BBE have coming out looks like it could be a hit,

    from their site

    "[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The TWO TIMER™ was inspired by the long discontinued Boss DM-2 Delay. The DM-2 was known for its warm, haunting reverb and tape-like echoes. The TWO TIMER offers two Independent delay times foot switchable via the TIME 1/TIME 2 mode switch. This makes it possible to have one delay setup for a short slapback rhythm sound while another is set to a longer delay for solos. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The TWO TIMER is essentially two great analog delays in one compact pedal. The TWO TIMER circuit features a BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) for the warmth and character only analog can deliver, 1% Metal Film resistors for pristine audio quality plus True Hard-Wire Bypass for a clean signal path when the effect is bypassed.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Other features include hardwire bypass, LED operation indicator, non-slip rubber bottom, easy-access 9v battery compartment and included external power supply"[/FONT]
