    maybe a delay. Other than that it seems as if you've got some nice choices

    Damn fine pedalboard right there. Maybe a chorus or trem and a delay?

    Thanks guys..I know there's a glaring hole of modulation, but whenever I DO have some, I really don't use much...
    Interested in-
    Toadworks Redux and the upcoming Phantasm!
    Memory Lane!
    Maxon AD80
    believe it or not...the new EVH Flanger...hmmm?
    Do you all think the trem would be a bit redundant with the LP vibe?
    IF NOT...I'm GASSING for a Semaphore!

    the memory lane can give you anything from slapback to very ambient beautiful delays. and of course, there's the on board modulation which you can use from time to time. if you add an expression pedal to the jack, you can control the oscilation and have some fun modulation that way. you can kind kill 2 birds with one stone.

    Trem on the amp? If not a Trem pedal & a compressor. May need a buffer unless you loop.

    Nice board, though!

    If you do decide on springing for a delay, a cool thing to get is the BYOC delay. I'm about to build one and it outta be fun, getting to learn a little more about electronics and also gettin a delay for not much money.

    You don't have a phaser. I know you say you don't use modulation that much, but how in the world do you play EVH-type songs without a phaser? Plus a good phaser gives you a lot, not just that heavy chunky phaser sound. A good one gives you almost chorus, almost univibe, and everything from a light body-building phase to funk to chunk. You need a good phaser.

    I hit a boost for solos....I can fake it pretty good (just ask my wife!)
    I'd LOVE a Sobbat Phasebreaker II....
    I'm thinking the EVH phaser would be nice.
    What other SMALL phasers are out there? Not TOO subtle.

    I have the BYOC Phaser--real nice Phase 90 clone.

    I will continue to rave about my current phaser, the Home Brew Electronics Psilocybe. You have to understand that I am a big believer in phasers. I think you pretty much have to have one. I mean I can get by with a really good overdrive and delay if I have to, but I really think a good phaser is key. And I'm a vintage phaser man. I don't believe a better phaser than the Mutron has ever been built, and I love my old orange Ross phaser. But right now those two sit on the shelf while my HBE Psilocybe gets played. Has great, thick Phase 90 tones, beautiful chimey chorus-like tones, and some really great pulsation that is less machine-like than some other phasers, so at the right settings it sounds like a univibe. And it's a very reasonable size and of course true bypass.
    There, there's my plug again.

    Try a treble booster if you like many flavors of distortion...

    OK. What's the Phantasm? There's a pic on their site, but nothing else...

    I THINK I read somewhere it was a phaser.

    An analog delay would sound awesome in your rig. I love my Boss DM-2. I's also suggest a compressor. My Boss CS-2 sounds killer going into my Lovepedal Vibe. You mentioned phasers. Phasers are nice, but I have to say, with my vibe, I feel a phaser is a bit redundant. I've had a Boss PH-1r an old Maestro Phaser (the one with the 'Balls' wheel - it was pretty cool) and a Phase 90. I think the Lovepedal Vibe sounds better than them all.
