    On your pedalboard, what would they be? And I mean true effects... No tuners or noise gates or anything that is supposedly transparent. I have an 808 clone, chorus, digital delay and compressor.

    Does the amp have 'verb or trem?

    if not, then

    A dynamic Fuzz, a good Trem, an analogue(-y) Delay and a versatile 'Verb.
    (I could get by just fine with just the dynamic Fuzz and a Delay ;) )

    Comp, med-high gain OD, chorus/vibe, reverb...I could say delay instead of verb, but my Mr. Springgy just makes everything sound better to my ear...been loving it...great find!

    I really only need a nice OD and verb. Ideally I'd like just a 2 channel reverb amp that I love for everything and maybe just a comp or a boost, but that hasn't happened in many years.

    Blackstone Mosfet Overdrive
    Rat or Big Muff variant
    BBE Sonic Stomp (kinda transparent, but I use it as an EQ)

    If I could have a roadie to transport my Tremolux, I'd swap delay for trem.

    Assuming I'm using my Jet City or another amp whose natural OD I like then:

    Merkin Fuzz, Boost, Small Stone Chorus and Akai headrush delay/looper

    (Phaser runs a close second, and if I'm not a fan of amps of then either a Blackout Effectors Mantra Od or a Visual sound Jekyll and Hyde)

    If the amp doesn't have reverb, then

    reverb, delay, two types of OD


    delay, 2 OD, wah

    Of course, I might have a different answer tomorrow
