    I play Worship (contemporary a la HIllsong, jesus culture) + blues (Mayer, SRV) plus I'd love to do some crazy stuff too. Look at the poll.

    For that kind of worship music I think the Screwdriver and the Zen 2 would be the most versatile. I am not a big fan of the Paisley. Hint on the Zen 2..........get rid of the 12AX7 tube and replace it with a GOOD 12AU7! It makes a huge difference. I use mine this way for Worship ALOT!

    What is it in particular you don't like with the Paisley?

    I simply did not get along with how it is voiced. Could not get the sound I was after and I really like Wampler stuff. I traded the Paisley for a Black '65 and the Black rarely gets turned off!

    IMO, the kind of Worshuip music you mention requires a very open, "airy", chimey OD. My Zen 2 with the 12AU7 will do that, but nothing does it better for me than my Lumpy's Lemon Drop. It also stacks so well with delay, chorus, other modulation so important to modern Worship music.

    YES, that would work!! Or Screwdriver and AstroTone. But for modern worship I say check out the Lemon Drop! Lemon Drop and Muff...That would be GREAT!

    haha, well right now I've narrowed it down to the ones in the poll. Anyone else? It would be great if you explain why I should choose x :)

    sorry to bump this again...

    Sooo, I forgot to add some options. If we took away the crazy stuff I want to do, and just think about contemporary worship + blues ala Jmayer, what about these combos?

    Shadow Boost + Zendriven 2 + Tim or
    Shadow Boost + Paisley + Tim or
    Shadow Boost + King of Tone + Paisley or
    Shadow Boost + King of Tone + zendrive 2

    What d'ya think? :)

    I would still suggest screwdriver and muff of some type.

    Yeah, the Screwdriver Deluxe is really versatile. Paired with a Tim/my, even more so.

    I'd say use the pedals you like because you'll be likely to get the sounds that you like. :)

    The silly clowns that talk about the "praise and worship sound" and things that are "important" or "essential" to it are the reason why so much of it is so bland. The conformity and unimaginativeness are completely nauseating. :)
