    Practice. It's way cheaper than a pedal and you'll sound better as a result ;)

    Yeah, I thought about a TS, but the Joyo Sweet Baby is a clone of the Mad Professor Sweet Honey, which is kinda similar low-mid gain, attack sensitive type of pedal.

    We’ll see how profitable poker night is again this weekend. Maybe a few new additions to the board.

    I think an EQ pedal would be a good addition.

    Where did you get those pedal button toppers that look like tiny feet? I have some round ones but I've never seen ones that look like feet before.

    Reverb seller who bought a Tele body from me, and threw those in as a sweetener.

    what about an eventide H9 Max , it is a delay , reverb, harmonizer, eq, fuzz, distortion , phazer, flanger, echo, and much much more plus completely programable to put your effects into any order you need for live. you could get the H9 and buy only the algorhythms you need for 20.00 each and each algorythm has about 20-30 patches. and its stereo plus programed with blue tooth usb or midi. and if you have an H9 and an H9 max they both become H9 max's ( upto 4 extra units) plus the H9 Max has free life time upgrads to any new algorythms
    I program mine with an Ipad (easy to use)

    just a thought

    algorythms

    Another vote for the Boss EQ. It’s compact and reliable, and it has the sliders at very well-chosen frequencies. I sent mine to AnalogMan for the low-noise modification.

    So you run 1500 bucks worth of pedals through a Hot Rod Deluxe? Right...

    Who has $1500 worth of pedals and the HRD you’re referring to?

    The Boss FRV-1 '63 Reverb may have you thinking about reverb again. ;)

    Wow, that looks to be a pretty serious piece of kit. Really cool! I'll have to check it out.

    I forgot they make a pedal version. I always loved adding that to the mixdown chain back in the day.

    So agree,

    I used to think you had to match your guitar with a particular amp that sounds good until I discovered the Boss EQ pedal. I actually use a Boss GE-7B as it has my guitar frequencies that I need to adjust for the sound I like.
    So versatile, tweak a frequency or two, use as a flat or EQ'd boost, use the gain to boost fir solos or, use the gain in reverse, have the gain on lower than amp unity for rhythm, then turn it off for solos (trick I learnt from another member on here).
    It took me only 40 years of owning & playing hundreds of pedals, guitars and amps to learn about this about an EQ pedal that I never owned & always dismissed as "useless pedal if you have a good amp/guitar" mentality.
    The single best weapon anyone can carry to a rehehsal, gigs or jam.

    Your pedal board looks fine. I have a doo-dad that suctions into your countertop and it peels, slices, and cores an apple all at once. It’s handy for making pies and what-not. Look into one of those.
