    kinda connected to GtrWiz's excellent Gilmour thread, who would you hire to make your entire pedalboard from scratch? Dave picked

    its a tie for me btwn Dave Fox @ FoxRox, or Zach @ Zvex.

    wouldnt mind having a total board outfitted with every one of their wares for my needs.

    Even tho he makes guitar pedals and I play bass I'd have to go with Dave at Foxrox. Or maybe Musitronics.

    With the exception of the echo effect, wah and univibe, I would unequivocally select David Main of Differential Audio Manifestationz. His knowledge and ability to recreate with original parts all different types of dirt, OD, fuzz, boost boxes is unparalleled. He also has an amazing collection of the originals so he can replicate almost all of the classics for 60-70's rock sounds. I am so impressed with this and his amazing customer service and communication with the client.

    It's hard to find one builder who makes great versions of each of the variety of pedals I use - modulated delay, phaser, tremolo, univibe, volume pedal, reverb, tone bender fuzz, clean boost, light/medium OD.

    Maybe Moog. ;)

    I couldn't choose just 1, I am a mix and match guy. I love just about everything from:

    Robert Keeley
    Dave Barber
    JD Sleep
    BYOC
    Alf Hermida
    Lovepedal
    as well as my '97 and '96 Fulldrives!

    (and I have the Paypal receipts to prove it!)

    Hard to get to just one, but HomeBrew Electronics is definitely up there.

    No doubt about it - Lovetone. Of course, it would have to be a very LARGE pedal board... :AOK

    Depends on the day.
    Just going off of my limited experience with BJF, I would have to say I would go for a BJF pedalboard. The PGC is a great little box, does what I wanted without getting in the way. I dig.

    Others would have to be

    Analogman (good experience in a variety of effects)
    Fulltone (a solid tone palette for sure!)
    Pete Cornish (a given)

    After dicken' around with pedals for a good solid 5 years and trying all the different ones, there is no doubt in my mind. It would be Mike Fuller from Fulltone. He is a very good player and all of the pedals that I have tried of his are really good. And I only have a mini deja and a TTE right now, but I have tried several others and they all sound good. Plus I have seen his rig and it is great rig in my opinion.
