    I guess mine would be: SD-1 > DS-1 > PH-1 > DM-2

    I'll do my latest mini board:

    Korg Mini Pitchblack > Boss TU-3W
    WH Saucy Box > OD-3
    MXR 108 Fuzz > FZ-2
    Ibanez EM-5 > DM-3
    One Control Prussian Blue verb > RV-2

    Current board:

    Joyo Tuner - TU3
    Tronographic Boxidizer - There's no equivalent, so I'd have to use a GE-7 to help open up my Quilter.
    DOD 440 Envelope Filter - AW-3
    Basic Audio Lucky Number - BD-2W. This wouldn't have as much gain and fuzz as the Lucky Number, but would have a similar mid Boost.
    Fuzzhugger Arc Flash - I'd have to replace this with two pedals. FZ-2 for the really loud raw stuff, and MD-2 for scooped distortion that could be stacked with BD-2. I own an MD-2 now. Great for palm muting, not so good for anything else.
    By00ler Fuzzhugger - FZ-3
    Ibanez AD Mini - DM-2W
    TC Spark Booster (Full Size) - FB-2 Feedback Booster

    The gain/dirt section would be a little tough to deal with. I'd have to really experiment to get sounds I like as much as I have now. It's also got 4 pedals in it. I'd be trying to get it down to 2 or 3 at most.

    Id use a BD-2W --> CE-2W --> DM-2W

    as far as a tuner is concerned, I just use one of thoe clip on snark things, they seem to get the job done OK

    actually those are the pedals I have, although I also have a bluesbreaker clone I use sometimes, and a Chrono Delay, and a Delay 80s. Need to pick up a another DD-2

    TU-3 --> TU-3
    The Glove OD --> ???
    Dunlop Crybaby --> good as gone anyway, tired of relying on a wah as a solo crutch
    CH-1 --> CH-1
    PS-5 --> PS-5
    The Prophet --> DD-5
    RV-6 --> RV-6

    almost there! currently looking for a dirt replacement, and will probably put a volume pedal (Boss!!) at the end of the chain.

    also open to suggestions for that dirtbox, look for new thread lol

    I just a lot of Boss pedals anyway.

    But if it were ALL Boss, then it would look like this:

    Boss RV-3
    Boss DS-1 40th
    Boss BD-2
    Boss MT-2w
    Boss FZ-2
    Boss HM-2
    Boss HM-3
    Boss SD-1
    Boss PH-3
    Boss NS-2
    Boss TU-3

    All fit on a Pedaltrain Jr very nicely!

    No can do.

    I started buying pedals back in the early ‘70’s.

    About 20 years ago I used to bring one of those plastic Boss pedalboards with six pedals to gigs and practices.

    I quickly came to the conclusion that they tended to lack subtlety so they mostly sounded best in the OFF position.

    I do still use my ancient Boss TU-2 though.

    Could probably replace it all with a TU-2, a couple of BD-2s, and a DD-20 and be just fine.
