1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    So, what's the cheapest pedal you currently own, use, and love? not the one you used in the past, or liked or read good things about it, or had in the past liked it but sold it. We are talking about the one you own but also used on your board right now and you love.

    We all know that one person cheap is another person expensive, but that's not important here, if your cheapest pedal (that you own/use/love) is $200 or $300 then it's ok, as long as it's the cheapest

    Tuner pedals doesn't count.

    Mine is ditto looper, I don't have it anymore in my big board because I needed the space, but I have it on my small board and I use it all the time to study, write stuff or play around, I'm actually thinking what can I do to get it on the big board again.

    My BOSS SD-1 was even cheaper than my Ditto Looper. I love both of them and wouldn't hesitate to buy them again if needed.

    MXR phase 90... current production with the box logo. It is a perfect phaser pedal and I don’t think it needs an upgrade or a boutique treatment. I actually like it better than the script logo version.

    That's a great pedal sometimes I've thought about selling all the expensive gear and keep a medium board with simple great pedals, this one is always on the list.

    Behringer TO800 $28. I bought one once the JHS channel confirmed it was the same circuit as the Tube Screamer. I would never drop the coin for an original TS. It freaking sounds amazing and stacks killer with the Boss SD-1 and Boneshaker.

    Great topic!! I can't think of the name of the pedal, but I have a mooer slow gear clone on my board that I got for a song. I love it because it sounds great, is quiet and easy to dial in, and it does the slow gear thing way better than others I've tried, both pedals and modelers

    Mad Professor Simble. I bought it used. I paid a little over a hundred bucks for it. I saw the listing on Reverb and figured “why not”. Freaking. Love. It!

    There was a time where I was very close to get one of those, it seems to me like a really cool pedal, never got around to it though, but is still in the back of my mind.

    Not only does it sound SUPER close to my Fuchs ODS’s lead channel, it stacks beautifully with other pedals.

    If I wanted to add fuzz to my lead tone, my amp would just compress the hell out of it and turn it into mush. The Simble takes that fuzz and adds some mids and cranks it up to 11.

    It’s amazing!
