I've been playing since the summer of '92 and save for a few overdrives (an OCD & a Tube Screamer) and a wah pedal I used very rarely, I've never had an official "pedalboard". The last year of course has meant lots of extra playing time and after seeing multiple videos and articles about the influx of budget Chinese clones of famous pedals, I figured I'd try to put one together. I was happy overall with the pedals I got. The only real turds were the Monoprice Stage Right Fuzz and Overdrive. To me where the budget pedals excel is overdrive & distortion. The iSet Reverb I bought was serviceable but not exactly what I wanted. I loved the KMise Vintage Phaser but it is only a Phase 45 type phaser and I wanted the more extreme Phase 90 variety. The MXR Phase 95 was exactly what I wanted. Another excellent pedal is the Azor Tremolo, a Boss TR-2 clone. It does the choppy square wave trem really well, but I really wanted a tap tempo trem that had a smooth Fender amp tremolo vibe. The JHS Kodiak is excellent for that, and I'm really happy with it. If I had room I'd probably keep both of them on the board. I know we all say it, but I feel like this board has everything I wanted on it and I am done for awhile. I want to take a few months to trial & error and really get good sounds with what I have. The signal chain is: GUITAR--> •Vox Wah on floor into board-->> •Earthquaker Devices Spatial Delivery->> •Kokko Compressor-->> •Gokko Sonic Flame Overdrive (Klon clone)-->> •Caline Orange Burst (BBE PreAmp clone)-->> •Joyo Ultimate Drive (OCD clone)-->> •Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion-->> •Gokko Rocket Distortion -->> •MXR Phase 95 Phaser-->> •Behringer UV300 Vibrato (Boss V2 clone)-->> •JHS Kodiak Tremolo--> •Joyo D-SEED II Delay/Looper-->> •Keeley 30ms Artificial Double Tracker/Reverb-> -->AMP I added a Fender foot switch to turn the spring reverb off/on in the Monoprice 15 watt tube amp I'm using. I've tried the board through my Fender Deluxe Reverb but it gets really loud quick and it doesn't sound as good quietly as the Monoprice does. The 15W/1W switch really allows me to drive the preamp without pissing everyone off.
