I love the simplicity here (this is Mark Knopfler's "pedalboard") - and yes I know hes got some rack equipment backstage and a treble booster somewhere in line.

Anybody else do a simple setup.

If I have to set up quick I might use a system of guitar-od-combo and run the amp reverb around 4-6 for clean sounds and 2 for dirty ones. Also guitars do have a pickup selector and tone controls...
