I posted several months ago that I was through with chasing tones via pedals. I lied. I was just in denial. Since I posted that I've purchased a Boss BD-2 and an Xotic EP Boost. I just ordered a MP Simble and a Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret. I plan to buy a Catalinbread 5F6 and probably a Wampler Velvet Fuzz sometime in the future. FWIW, I really like both the BD-2 and EP Boost. I basically leave the EP on as it just adds a little more. It's what the good folks in Louisiana call "Lagniappe". The BD-2 gives me a basic tone that I really like for blues. i'm also going to be letting go of some pedals- a Wampler Plexi Drive, a JHS Pollinator (which I think is way overrated).
