I'm interested in hearing how different musicians would approach this theoretical problem: you have 500 bucks to buy five meat and potatoes pedals that will allow you to cover a gig that could include country, jazz, blues, classic rock and hard rock/metal. The pedals you select will be from these five categories: 1. Compressor 2. Overdrive 3. Distortion 4. Delay/Echo 5. Clean boost I'm leaving out wahs, chorus/vibe, phasers and fuzz tones, but lets say you could sub a chorus for a delay (one time based effect) or a fuzz in place of a distortion. The idea is that we are looking for as much overall quality from the five pedals as we can get for $500 total. There are SO MANY choices these days, I'm curious as to how different players would approach this based on their experiences, since we've all probably gone through some cheap pedals and some rather expensive ones. What are your choices?
