    Do you have any pedals that you never tweak? That no matter what you can set and forget about?

    For me it the Timmy. At any volume, any setting never touch the knobs. And I guess the EP Booster too as I run it always on at unity.

    What are yours?

    EDIT - If you like include what the settings are for said pedals are and the achieved effect that would be interesting

    Used to be the EP Booster too (had and sold 3 of them).

    Right now, I rarely tweak my Empress Comp. I have a setting I like for clean sounds (where I mostly use it).

    The DE7 for me. Knobs always at 2:00, 7:00 and 8:00, from left to right. Always Echo mode.

    I am adding to my pedal ensemble, but right now I just have one delay that adds a little effect and it stays at one setting. I would like to have a second delay for more a more pronounced effect.

    Barber Tone Press for any cleans. Volume at slightly above parity (14 o'clock-ish), sustain and blend 11 o'clock.

    Pretty much all my pedals except my Timmy and OCD, which I tweak to the song/style I'm playing. Those pedals include my EP Booster, Vortex, NeoClone, and Montavillian.

    Signa Drive and OCD. Everything else (thought there's less of it now ;) ) varies from song to song sometimes.

    I spent years using a Boss CH-1 set to a subtle chorus that just lived on.... now use an electric mistress for clean but for about 5 years just CH-1 on everything

    Pretty much all of my pedals are set and forget as far as gigging. I'll sometimes mess with them when playing at home or comparing to a new pedal (either mine or borrowed). But, then they go right back to the original setting. Most of my tweaking at gigs is done with my fingers, picks, volume and tone pots.
