Here's the modest setup I use for my cover band.
Nothing super boutique, But it gets me by

woops where is that pic?
Yeah, I thought so too but still have no guts to get rid of my old stuff which been with me for ages - just can't imagine my life without RAT and BlueTube.
Previously my board was looking like shown, then I decided to put as many switches as possible in one row to feel myself more comfortable at live gigs, but I am too lazy to build a new, bigger board, add something like Octaswitch and save all the pedals so I decided to sacrifice some of them and tried the Quattro.
I have no regrets at the moment
This is the new "re-issue" version of it, I believe it was made in the late 90's-early 2000's.
I bought it used in... maybe 2005, someone here in Russia put the new power converter for 220v inside so it still works directly from the AC outlet.
Great stuff, I just love this pedal, using it as a tone-shaper which is alwas on so in most cases I have the chance to hear something very similar to "my sound" at virtually any gig.
heres mine , please have patience im learning to upload photos.
I had a Carl Martin Quattro, the same one as you, with Chorus not trem, for ages. Briliant thing, although I think you need to add another flavour of dirt with it. The Echo particularly is superb.
What's the boss foot pedal?
Yeah, this is the reason I have my RAT in the loop
The echo sounds quite old-fashioned, like it.
The boss pedal on my previous picture is CS-3 compressor, the photo was taken when I just got the Mad Professor and removed my old boss from the board.
There's a very cool compressor in the Quattro but sometimes I find myself thinking that I miss the Mad Professor's punch.
There all wired up and ready for this weekends gig. May squeeze another overdrive or something in there. Any suggestions?
A new addition to the pedalboard.
If your thinking OD I'm always partial to the Boss Blues Driver or TS808/TS9, but the "or something" has me thinking Ibanez PH9 Phaser, ;-)
Wow. I've been playing for over 25 years and the insane amount of knowledge and information I continually find out I didn't or don't know never ceases to amaze me. That's why I love these forums, I have learned more in the last 3 years on here that has been extremely useful. Thank you! That is another extremely useful bit of information. Me possibly needs to rethink my current configuration.
I have had mine for at least 20 years and never found a good use for it until I bought my Twin last year. I can't describe what it really does for it because for me it's not so much a "drive" but... a tone shaper just like you said. It just adds a smoothness and warmth that the amp just doesn't have without it. I mean it sounds great by itself but once I added the Blue Tube I find myself not liking the tone with the pedal off.
My thoughts exactly. Was just looking at Blues Driver yesterday and an MXR phaser. Got about a day before the gig so gonna try add something.
I like those BeeBuzz pedals. Fun stuff!
Yep my favorite fuzz box I ever tried. Thick fuzz, 60-s thin fuzz. Great stuff.
I always enjoy seeing your pedalboards JesterR.
So yeah. Made another stop at L&M and picked up a Full-Drive 2. Had to take the Badass 78 Distortion but not worried. Already for the weekend now.
Simplification... finally dumped the compressor from this board and put all the dirt on the lower level:
I might almost fit it all on a Pedaltrain Mini if I dumped the Vintage Echo, but I like things spread out. Now, if I can just resist the urge to add another pedal into the gap on the top row between now and tomorrow night...
