No way I could get through one of my blues jams with that few pedals
Sorry, you can't get a good tone unless you spend more.
Embrace the limitation to find what's really essential!
No more than 15 = Minimalist ???
Is that US or Canadian dollars?
Cheap Board by thecomposinator posted Apr 6, 2020 at 1:25 PM
This thread is late by five days.
I would buy a $12k vintage les Paul and step all over the knobs and toggle switch.
A board with 15 pedals is large by any standard. I am still in the process of buying my goal pedals and then building my board once I have all in possession. My board will have a total of 13 pedals once complete.
I'm a minimalist, but if I had to reduce my rig down that much I would just play acoustic..
I got 2 dozen = DQ
MINIMAL PEDALBOARD> Pedaltrain One: Vox volume>Jam Wahcko wah>Peterson tuner to amp input
Line 6 HXFX to loop
Not mine (I have 19 pedals on my board at the moment) but here's an affordable minimalist board from LA Sound Design
If I had to, I could get by with just:
Low gain drive
Medium gain drive
High gain distortion
Assuming of course that I have a headstock tuner, the volume pedal, wah and whammy are off the board, and we’re not counting “utilities” like switchers, noise gate, EQ, looper, expression pedals etc.
Basically I could give up my Freqout, and just try to get feedback for real.
So no. Can’t do it.
I preach pedal minimalism to others....
But, I have yet to obey my teachings.
Even if you have a Klon, a few Strymon, and some random rare padals you are still going to struggle to hit $12,000! Also, what a random number....why not $10,000?
