    I would say a delay and a drive is all you really need.

    Why does Praise and Worship have specific pedal requirements. I'm not familiar with P&W music. Does most P&W music tend to have a lot of echo/delay?

    By the way, what is Praise and Worship music? Original religious rock music to be played in a church?

    Why bring religion into the forum, Im sure it has nothing at all to do with pedals.
    This is as silly as making another EVH thread.

    Oddly enough, you're the one injecting religion here. This thread isn't about church; it's about a genre that often uses specific sounds. For those who don't know, the genre is dominated by a few bands who tend to sound similar and the OP is trying to cop their tones.

    I personally think the answer is, "Minimum? 0, of course," but that would also be avoiding the point of the thread. I usually go with at least a drive and prefer to have a compressor as well, and don't worry too much about the originals. Most often I take the same board I take to any gig and mix 'em all together until I like what I hear.

    I had no idea it it had it's own sound. I have some music that is considered christian rock and it sounds like metal to me.

    There are many genres, but generally P&W means the stuff that's played at services in large, non-denominational modern churches.

    IMHO as an outsider who's worked on quite a bit of it, it tends to be sort of a cross between Coldplay and Diane Warren, with a little de-tuned heavier stuff thrown in on the choruses.

    The melodies/lyrics need to be pretty basic, as the congregation participates and the message needs to be unambiguous.

    P&W music = U2 So use whatever the Edge uses you'll be fine. :p

    same as anything else -- if you can get your drive from your amp, all you really need is a delay or verb

    How true :) I use dotted eighth note delay every Sunday morning :)

    I use delay overdrive and that's really it. Some chorus on clean parts.

    I think the Droff nailed it in this video, skip to 0:45. Essentially a tuner, two ODs and a delay with dotted eight.

    First OD is always on as a tone shaper and some light grit, so i guess if your amp can get a good consistent light grit sound, you can omit one OD pedal.

    Not religion. It's music.

    EVH still rules by the way :D

    On another thought, if you have a 2-ch amp with fx loop then you don't need any OD pedals. Tuner upfront (or clip on :D) and stick the delay in the loop..

    So...it really depends on the rest of your rig...:bonk

    There, I fixed it. :wave

    As far as pedals go...I have a BBE Wah, Cheese Block Small Wonder boost, Vox Saturator, Digitech DigiVerb, Visual Sound H2O, Boss DD-6 and Boss TU-2 tuner running into a Vox AC15VR. That seems to be enough for me to recreate most any modern sound a la Hillsong United, et al...
