    Man, tough to answer. I use it clean, dirty and fuzzed out. I use it for vibe (duh), faux phaser, faux Leslie and the vibrato mode is fantastic.
    I mostly jam or play at church, so I don’t really have any songs I could point to.
    “When I want to hear vibe in the mix, I turn it on.”
    That’s the best I can describe it.

    You're just jealous of how much stuff we can artfully cram onto a small board ;)

    I recently replaced my old PT Mini and FT Jr with a new PT Metro 20 and Volto 3. I run 5 pedals: Xotic Super Clean boost / Sonic Research Turbo Tuner / J. Rockett Blue Note / Whirlwind Orange Box / MXR Carbon Copy. Light and easy to use with no noise issues. One of my best rig decisions.

    I had a crack at pulling some tones from a minimalist board - Revv G3, EHX Microsynth and Eventide H9. Lots of fun!

    Haha on the contrary, I have nine pedals plus a Zuma power supply all atop a Metro 20! :D

    It's definitely at the limit of comfortable spacing for me, but a few are mini's and two are sideways at the top.

    I wear a 13 EEEEE shoe. Can you imagine my 6” wide sole trying to click one pedal on or off while singing, playing and keeping time?

    I’m great at surfing though since I don’t need a board.

    Only on TGP is seven pedals considered minimalist. Lol.

    I have two Pedaltrain Nano+ boards, each with their own CS6. Someone tried to tell me in another forum that the CS6 doesn't fit under the Nano. I told them they were mistaken. Based upon your board, it looks like the CS6 fits under the Nano, correct?

    Yes, fits absolutely perfect. The Nano is the same height as the Nano+. Also fits the Metro series.

    I've had several. The most basic being a Fulldrive 2 and a tuner.

    Right now I'm running a DLS into a Deluxe Reverb, and I season that with a Sunface and/or Rat and/or Tubescreamer, all just as solo boosts. Ultimately, I'd like to get a Katzenkonig and maybe a silicone Sunface, along with a delay and wah. I was on a super-minimalist kick for a while, but I'm enjoying having a few different flavors these days.
