I us I use a very large pedal board for compression, wah, volume, tuner, distortion, POG, etc., and a separate board for time delay based pedals which goes in to the effects loop. That’s my live rig. At home, I don’t need all that cumbersome stuff - just a few effects. The OP presented a hypothetical scenario for us to contemplate and exchange ideas. Why would you insult him and the participants on here? In fact, why were you even drawn to this thread to begin with? In the future, if you spot a “lame” thread, please just move on to a thread that you can contribute to.
