Pedals that killed your gas - yung totoo ha?
« on: August 27, 2013, 08:10:29 PM »
Once upon in your life, you encounter such a magical pedal that you just start not caring about the rest of the bunch anymore.
These are the pedals that killed your gas. Do you have such a thing in your pedalboard? I do.

EQ: Detox EQ
I've always struggled with Graphic equalizers so parametric EQ like this makes my life easier in the art of mixing. What makes it even easier is that it has the most basic knobs an EQ can offer: Treble, Mid, Bass and Level. Also, it does not color my tone in any way. Hard to go wrong with this. Too much mids? lower the mids. Not much lows? Increase the bass.
May not be the best EQ out there but has certainly worked for me. This thing has never left my pedalboard ever since I got it.

Overdrive: SRB808 3 in 1
It's essentially a 3 overdrive pedal in one with bass boost. 1st is a TS808 which i mostly use. 2nd mode is a Dumble. 3rd mode is a marshall amp which i rarely use but it's nice to have in case i might need it. It has some nice qualities of a good overdrive. Not too nasal, nice overtones without getting too overwhelming, dynamic, bass boost to compliment and transparent as it can get. I won't say that this is an OD to beat but SRB808 gives me the kind of overdrive that is in my head, period.

Booster: EP Xotic Booster
This thing is just perpetually turned on. The way i describe it is like removing a veil cover from a speaker. It boosts the necessary signals to make the guitar sound big and alive.

Im still enjoying what i have on my board but for now, these are the pedals that killed my GAS for EQ, OD and booster.


Kayo? what pedal(s) have you acquired to which you can truly say, "di na ako titingin sa iba".   :)

distortion:
Zim foxrox and love pedal purple plexi 800 - there is just no way i can be interested with another dirt pedal, unless they come in a color and shape i like.

OD:
Lovepedal Eternity - i am happy with this, i am not interested to check out the "better" ones.


phaser:
MXR p90 - lol would you believe it? one knob, and its a 4 stage phaser. i am not interested in anything more hi-tech than this. i have sold this twice, and bought it twice to replace the one's i sold.

OD / Dist:  Fulltone GT500
Reverb:  Strymon Flint
Delay:  Strymon Timeline

Marshall in a box:  Wampler Plextortion (until I tested the Catalinbread DLS, so, I guess this should not be in the list)

Same. Use it in front of a bigger amp to make it sound even bigger.

Sonic Research ST-200 "killed" my GAS for tuners. I still want more tuners though. So.. does that count?

I built myself an AMZ MOSFET Boost, which does a really great job of boosting my volume for solos, or as a nice and quiet "overdriver" in front of my tube amp  :-D

While I'm not completely satisfied with it yet, the MI Audio Tube Zone that I have right now is also proving to be very useful for a lot of things - it can work as a standalone rock distortion pedal, it can produce a more "metal" sound when boosted with a TS, it can be a really awesome pseudo-treble boost, and with the right settings, it can sound really wooly, almost like a fuzz pedal :-)

And, when used alongside the right equipment, my trusty old Digitech RP500! :-o The other day I was using it to play with my tito and a couple of other musicians during an impromptu jam. This was after a fairly lengthy audition against my analog signal chain, and using the latter as a sonic reference of sorts (the methods I used are detailed here: http://talk.philmusic.com/index.php?topic=291551.0 ), but the results I got were pretty damn good. I wish I was able to record decent clips though. Granted, this thing can only sound as good as the gear you audition it against, but if you have access to really nice equipment, this can almost serve as a poor man's Kemper, and is a potential true gas killer in the right hands.

Mine are...

Reverb: EHX Cathedral
Delay: TC Electronics Nova Repeater
Chorus: Visual Sound Liquid Chorus

not the most expensive of their kind, pero gets the job done with flying colors IMO.. salamat kay GAS mentor joel_marcelo for suggesting the repeater and liquid chorus  :lol:

OD: Analogman KoT
- I was gassing for an Ethos but I stopped thinking about it when I tried this.

Delay: Malekko 616
- I sold my first 616, got a digital delay, but got another 616 because I missed it.

Reverb: Malekko Spring Chicken
- Just the right reverb. I stopped looking at the Neunaber Wet with this.

Still searching for the right high gain distortion for me. Looking forward to getting an MI Monolith Delta this year.
