Standard Supermoon? Or Supermoon Chrome?
The Bloodmoon also sounds amazing.
I don't know why, but it seems that distortion pedals are the hardest to get right. So most of mine are of this nature. All of the below stand out significantly to me.
Barber Direct Drive
Barber Dirty Bomb
Trombetta Mini-Bone/Bone Machine
Mythical OD (Klon - the hype is real)
Timmy (also, the hype is real)
BJF Dyna Red Distortion
Menatone King Of The Brittans
Zvex Fuzz Factory
Neunaber Expanse (WET alone, it made a me a fan of reverb again)
Zvex Wah Probe
Boomerang III phrase sampler
I have an Infinity coming tmrw- please explain this combo. Is it as simple as it seems. Drum machine pedal with any loop perfectly in time? If so- it’s be a modern miracle to me. Thanx! QUOTE="Ceragan42, post: 27868145, member: 181560"]Jeez, pretty much my entire board. Which is why they're all on there. I clearly have a problem, what with all the EQD, that company knocks it out of the park. But the Afterneath and Transmisser are just noise makers (though cool). But the Avalanche Run is particularly fantastic, especially with an expression pedal. Nothing compares.
For distortion, the Black Ash is wonderful.
But the most Elevated to a Higher Level pedal is not just one, but the syncing of two. The Pigtronix Infinity midi synced to the Beatbuddy has changed the game. And I get lost in riffs like never before. No other pedals have enabled me to get in as much playing time as these two.
These became the core almost every my guitar based setups:
AMT SS20 Valve Preamp
MASF Pedals Raptio, and their fuzz-boxes.
Bought the Strymon El Capistan last week. Within minutes of plugging it in I had already forgotten about the pedal and was lost in dreamy sounding chord progressions. It’s a great sign when a pedal inspires you to make music right off the bat like that. It’s instantly become one of my favourites.
Really missing mine, it was special
My Belle Epoch Deluxe is my new go-to multi fx unit. Vibrato, Chorus, Rotovibe, Wah, Delay, Reverb, and Overdrive in one pedal. Placed directly after my dirt stages, I'm in hog heaven. I pulled 3 units off my board because this rocked them. I have a mind to ask Howard Gee if he wants a gift basket sent to him.
Barber Direct Drive for low to mid gain overdrive, by a huge margin. Beat out ~20 boutique pedals for that same application and stacks beautifully with a Klone
Are you a freshman now or in your 60's? :-D
The Afterneath is more than just a noise maker. You can dial in some great Large Hall and Cathedral reverb sounds buy maxing out the Drag and Diffuse controls.
How do you order that twin peaks?
Now days, David Rolo typically posts to his instagram a day or two before he releases a batch of pedals giving a heads up. Then you go onto his site and order once they are in stock. He typically does monthly runs. So he'll build a batch, then sell them, rinse and repeat.
Gotta try that CP1X. Heard nothing but good stuff about it
I have a Duellist now and LOVE it! Is the Blues Power different enough to have both?
I don't like/have a use for fuzz, but I've tried a few over the years and these always struck me as being in their own right, subtly more gnar and distinctive in appealing ways
I just don't like fuzz though so I'd have no real use for one. of any of them
Way Huge Swollen Pickle Mk II
Not the rarest or most boutique pedals but I think there are no clones that are properly killing the market for these because it just can't be done. Or shouldn't
In another level:
Overdrive: Analogman KOT
Overall Delay: Chase Bliss Tonal Recall RKM
Tape Delay: Strymon El Capistan
Distortion: Vfe Alpha Dog
Eq: Chase Bliss Condor
Fuzz: Skreddy Lunar Module Deluxe Mini
Phaser: Chase Bliss Wombtone Mk II
Comp: Origin Effects Cali76 CD
Reverb: Chase Bliss Dark World
Here’s my list of stuff that’s just irreplaceably good:
- Echoplex EP-2 for the preamp and overall tape delay sound
- Chandler SDE for stereo delay
- Moog MF-104msd for cv controlled analog delay
- ‘86-‘88 Rat for distortion (maybe it’s just the 2 that I have that are really a cut above?)
- vintage Civil War / Tall Font Big Muff
- Spaceman Sputnik
- Cornish NG-2
- Manlay Ronno Bender
- Maestro PS-1a
Diamond Compressor was the first thing to come to mind. The amazing sound of it plus the convenience of simplicity.
The second is the Blackstone Appliances MOSFET Overdrive. That pedal just feels good. I never should’ve sold mine.
