I accidentally posted this to Pedal Owner's Club-- reposted here at The Stomp Box-- My simple little pedalboard is SD1--->OD3-->Eventide H9 with expression pedal-->carbon copy delay-->GE7. Eventide has a tuner mode so that got rid of a separate tuner pedal. I played a really fun gig last Saturday night at a great venue. I play in a six piece funk band-- two guitars, sax, bass, drums, keyboard. We were on for an hour before the headliner. The backline amp was a Twin Reverb. I toyed with the idea of just bringing the OD3 with a battery in it, but then decided somewhat anxiously that I wanted my whole board. The Eventide is nice because it gives me autowah, wah, phase shifter, flanger, chorus, tremolo, Whammy pedal, and a few other interesting effects all in one pedal. But I tend to use it very sparingly....I typically select just one effect that I plan to use on a song, call up the preset, and kick it on just for that song in the spot that it makes sense. So for the whole hour the only pedal I used was the SD1. With its mid-hump it worked perfectly as a nice lead boost, providing some compression, focus, and clarity to my lead tone. My guitar stays nicely in tune so I never touched the tuners or kicked on the tuner mode. I never used any of the modulation effects or anything else. Oh wait, that's not entirely true. For one lead I kicked on the Carbon Copy Delay. So at the end of the day I think I brought the whole board as well as its extension cord and power supply just because I was a little nervous about not having it. Next time maybe I'll bring one or two dirt pedals with batteries in them and call it a day, with a peghead clip-on tuner. I would even contemplate plugging straight in but with something like a Twin it's going to be too clean for the lead parts all by itself (at least for me). chris m.
