looking for the right pedal set up

I'm looking at setting up a pedal board for some blues music but don't know where to start. I'll be playing out of a late 60's model fender super reverb. It should be mostly blues sounding but mainly Texas blues, rock and country. Can I get some feedback on where to start?

I can only tell you what I use:
-Wilson Colourful Wah
-Barber Burn Unit or a Les Luis for overdrive
-Yardbox for fuzz
-Catlinbread Manx for high gain
-Everything else I use an M9.

I think I advise someone every week - look into a dallas rangemaster type pedal -it gives the sound people really want, but think other things`ll give em -really an analog man beano boost ( rangemaster style) and zvex SHO gives you the most righteous tone . . .

Don't they issue every blues player in Texas with a TS-9?
They say tone is in the fingers. Stick your fingers in your ears. Hear anything?

It's my opinion that you won't need a pedal board if that's the only style of music you'll be playing. I think all you need is a good overdrive pedal to go with your Super Reverb. It's hard to go wrong with an Ibanez TS-9 or (what I prefer) a TS-808.

Oh, sorry. Somehow I missed the rock and country parts. Maybe a compressor and digital delay for country, and another higher gain overdrive for rock.

Wah -> OD -> delay

That's depends on your tastes and how many you want to spend, but my suggestions are:
Wah: Wilson wah are note too pricey but has a great quality
OD: Hard to tell, but, again Wilson Lotus drive ll is really versatile: From clean boost to singing leads. And two independent channels are good. Also, Barber stuff is very nice. Half gainer is very nice low gain pedal.
Delay: If you want just simple delay: mxr Carbon copy or Way Huge Aqua Puss (if you want slapback). Or Boss DD-7 or TC electronic Flashback if you want some experiments.

Later you can add as much as you want: some kind of fuzz box, phase/vibe/rotary pedal, maybe tremolo (I do not know, if your amp has built in tremolo). But I really believe that wah+OD+delay can, actually cover many ground, and all of them not so hard to use.

PS and a good tuner is also nice feature.
