I'm in my final grad course and don't feel like studying atm :)

People talk about a desert island amp/pedal/guitar, etc.... how about a desert island pedal board?

Here's the rules:
1. No more than five pedals
2. Each must be a pedal you've never used (though can be a brand you've used)
3. No multipedals (M5, Timeline, H9 etc.)
4. Power Supply, Cables ,Amps all grow locally on this beautiful Island.

It might sound strange, but this gets you thinking about what's truly important to you as a player, we spend so much time / money on these things. I find that going into this "blind" gets me asking "What do I really want?"

Here's mine:
VFE Phaser / Tractor Beam
Analogman KOT
Basic Audio Scrarab Deluxe Fuzz
JHS Angry Charlie
Empress Tape Delay

TC Polytune (I normally use a TU2)
Tech21 Blonde (I have a Joyo American Sound)
Strymon Deco (I really like the wide stereo split this can do)
Syemour Duncan Shapeshifter trem (stereo out of phase trem is nice)
Strymon Dig (Nicely handles a pre-established stereo field)

It's all about the stereo field... and keeping in tune. Tech21 in case I'm not allowed to bring amps to the delicious dessert island.

Ha! Yeah, nothing is more important to me as a player than 5 pedals I've never played before!

I'd probably go like..

Digitech Polara
Digitech Obscura
Digitech DOD Boneshaker
Digitech Whammy V
Digitech TRIO

I have faith in Digitech due to my Timebender and experience with half the Hardwire line - the Obscura, Polara, Boneshaker, Whammy V and TRIO are all genuinely on my wishlist and would create an awesome little board that could tackle absolutely everything on it's own, and the TRIO would make the island feel a little less lonely.

I'm assuming an amp, cables, tuner and electricity are all provided for magically.
