    I'm new posting here but I need some reccomendtions- advice.

    I am close to completing my first board and I feel that it needs something else but I can't quite place it.

    This is so far: Buddy Guy Wah, Swollen Pickle, Zvex Box of Rock, OCD, Echo Puss, uni-vibe, digitech "Jam man." This flows into a tweed Blues Junior.


    I have thought about a Soul Food for a good clean boost in front of the OCD/box of rock. I have also thought of adding a phaser and a volume pedal...thoughts?

    Tremolo - I wouldn't make a board without it - but that is just me :)

    :worthless

    I would say tremolo or vibe, it's my fav effect and looks like you don't have it.

    If you can live without fuzz :)omg) and want a good cleanish boost, I'd highly recommend the Rockett Archer.

    I have a univibe- would a tremolo be very different?

    Well you have 3 dirt pedals already, do you really want a fourth on that small a board?
    I have never used a Box of Rock but I think it might cover most of the ground your OCD hits, either way I would ditch one of those and but in a Timmy. Then you still have one place left to fill up....
    MXR EVH Phaser
    Digitech Polara Reverb (my new fav)
    a different fuzz (Pharoah, Scarab, Iron Bell)
    tuner

    Unlike the others I NEVER use a tremelo. I even built one from BYOC but never use it.

    Yes it is. It's THE effect who've made me convert my pedalboard into a stereo rig. It's awesome man, really! I currently use a vibe and a tremolo for different use. My trem is a The Looker from Young Pedals.

    If you're going for trem, I recommend the Basic Audio Throbby. Warm, easy to use and very well built. Sounds great, too!

    Effectrode PC-2A Compressor. Tighten everything up and give you a lot of warm boosting abilities with everything in line after it. It's definitely in the "tone enhancer" catagory.

    Just a good clean boost! (doesn't effect your tone just boosts it) :aok
