    If I can only choose from what I currently own, I say:

    Crybaby
    boss cs-3
    MXR 78 custom distortion
    TCE nova repeater

    I'd gladly trade the boss for a VS route 66.

    A tuner isn't really an effect is it?

    I would probably use this route. Might switch the Chorus for a Wah, but right now I am utilizing my chorus more. Plus my TC Chorus has a trem feature (might be cheating with that though) :twisted:

    A lot of guys seem to go for comp - OD - trem - delay. I can totally understand the last 3, I use those too. I would love to learn how you use the compressor and why.

    I know what the comp does and how it works, do you use it for country clean tones or perhaps to boost leads, or trick an OD into thinking it's a distortion pedal?

    I don't feel I need one right now, but perhaps I'm missing something.

    I'd love to learn about your application of the compressor pedal :)
