Hi. Inaugural post, great forum, been reading for a while but no reason to post until now. SHORT VERSION: I do guitar work but due to venue circumstances I can't use an amp. I do 90% of my work there. What overdrive / distortion pedals would you fine people suggest to get the best sound out of direct PA speakers (4x Mackie SRM450s, 2L 2R) that aren't overly reliant on the amp for their tone? I play a Gibson LP Studio. Thanks in advance. LONG VERSION: I do a lot of guitar and bass work, for two primary purposes. - P&W in a church with acoustic issues preventing me from using an amplifier. I am the only guitar player, a couple of times the only musician, so I need to fill as much space as possible. I am starting to do ambient work as well. - Recording work in a home on CDs for worship and ambient music. My housing situation prevents me from micing up an amp/cab. I know several effects, particularly overdrive, rely on good amp tone to sound their best. I have no amp tone. Current setup: For preamps, I'm currently using a Hughes & Kettner Tubeman MKII (has decent overdrive but distortion channel is not great), and for bass I'm using a Tech21 VT Bass Deluxe Character pedal. I often have to play both on short notice, so I keep all my effects on the same pedalboard. I currently own the following: The two preamps above, input selector (to switch between guitar / bass when necessary), Tech-21 Blonde Character Pedal, CE-5 Chorus, FRV-01 Reverb. I recently sold my GT-10B processor to get some cash to get good-quality effects. This is my planned chain order. Items in bold are what I need input on. Preamp (Guitar or Bass) -> Input Selector -> ANY GOOD OVERDRIVE SUGGESTIONS YOU HAVE (no amp!) -> Tech21 Blonde Character Pedal (Used for distortion, can sell/replace) -> CE-5 Chorus -> DELAY 1 [investigating DD-20, SD SFX-10 Deja-Vu Tap Delay, Strymon Timeline if by a miracle one shows up used, or any other suggestions you fine people have] -> REVERB 1 [Currently FRV-01 Spring, may sell and replace based on advice, see below] -> DELAY 2 [see above] -> Vol. Pedal -> REVERB 2 [investigating Eventide Space vs. Bluesky] -> RC50 Looper Your input is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
