    I keep my board small and simple, therefore I'm pretty picky about what goes on it...

    Tuner - I've used the PitchBlack for years (and still have one on my bass board), but just switched to the TC Polytune Mini for my guitar board. Works great and has a very small footprint.

    Compressor - Just a plain red Dyna Comp - I keep the sensitivity almost all the way down and use it for just a slight thickening effect into my overdrive, and to balance lead levels out a bit. Simple and a very classic sound.

    Overdrive - Blackstone Mosfet Overdrive - 2 channels, small footprint, and sounds ridiculously good. I primarily use the brown for rhythm and the red for lead. Not to mention the fact that it's the best looking pedal I've ever seen!

    Reverb - T-Rex Tonebug. Great spring (for reverb-less amps) and hall (for more ambient sounds) reverbs. Lots of variety from two knobs. Priced right, too!

    Delay - TC Electronic Flashback - you'd be hard pressed to find another pedal that does as much as it does, as well as it does, in the footprint that it occupies. I really like the audio tapping feature, too (I realize I may be in the minority on that one!) I switch between the analog, tape & mod modes, and keep the tri-chorus toneprint installed, just in case I find myself itching for modulation.

      I am really getting tired of logging on to TWC, and having the system time me out while I am composing a reply!

        I use a Boss TU-3 tuner, but my Arion HU 8500 is actually more accurate.

        I use a Pigtronix Philosphers Rock. Awesome compressor with endless sustain, and a germanium grit circuit! I love this thing!

          I prefer "Low Yield" overdrives, because I often play full chords behind the worship leader. I use a Boss Super Overdrive, and sometimes an Arion Tubulator. I actually got rid of my Catalinbread "Galileo" - I could not find a sound that I liked.

            Best Boost? So far its the Behringer PB 100...seriously. I have tried several.

            Best Noise Redux? Behringer NR 300...seriously. Better than the "big boys".

              OK all you guitar heads out there.... I'm back and carrying the keyboard torch with a vengeance... (or at least passionate determination)...

              Because of a job/career change and finally living my dream of being a licensed/certified/degreed full time music teacher I have the funds and have made three new keyboard purchases in the last 6 months so I'll start my current list with those:

              Live Set up (classroom and live/worship set up):
              Korg Krome 88-key
              Korg PA600 Professional Arranger
              Roland VK8m drawbar organ module
              Pro-Sound rotary speaker
              (plus church's Clavinova depending on duties that day)
              all run through a Yamaha 8 channel submixer

              School office for private lessons and practicing:
              Yamaha YPG635

              Home set up:
              Yamaha P-95
              Korg Microstation

              other:
              Ipad 2 with various music apps including my favorite keyboard dude's app GEOSYNTH... check that app out.. a way cool and totally playable digital instrument. Developed by my man Jordan Rudess!!!!

              ok... that's all for now... credit now maxed... have to pay all that off... chapter 2 on the way.....

                    Hope you don't have to haul that Leslie to and from church every weekend!

                      My bass gear is pretty simple- I run through a compressor on my Digitech BP200, into a small 12" amp with a DI to the board. I like the sound of my bass without a lot of flavor except maybe a chorus effect now and then. My 'outdoor' rig is a GK Backline 600 and a used Crate 4x10. Works good.

                      I'm just getting into guitar, so I'm getting my 'wish list' together. You guys are giving me some ideas. I do have a little Peavey Studio Pro from the 80s that I got a good deal on. It sounds great for a 20w amp aside of a speaker basket rattle when I play a low G or A...

                      As far as pedals, I'm looking at two extremes- either a simple Big Muff- Delay- Univibe/Phaser setup or an all-out floor module like the Mustang or Boss with a plethora of effects

                      Don, I dig that old-school stuff- as long as I don't have to carry it... (I can't afford it either lol)
                      If we want to go places we haven't been, we will have to do things we haven't done.
