    So I've currently got on my board a compressor/sustainer, a cab sim, a delay, and a looper. My power supply supports five pedals, so Obviously that means I need another pedal to complete the set up! :)

    I play mainly 60s/70s blues, rock, etc and also this is into headphones/DI as I don't have/want an amplifier (hence the cab sim).

    So what would people suggest? An EQ? Reverb? Something else?

    For the kind of music you reference
    ( same as what I play- although that's a broad, 'big pool') I'd say Reverb, Tremolo, and some kind of OD/Distortion/Fuzz?

    As 2-or 3 of your pedals are basically replacing things you get from having an actual amp ( the emulator and possibly, compressor) and playing with other people ( a looper)

    THAT means you need a bigger power supply next , BECAUSE THAT WON'T BE YOUR LAST PEDAL ...

    Prepare the road to EDEN*!

    *my road is 90 pedals long

    anyway...no od pedals on your board:

    Maxon OD-9 Tubescreamer or
    Nobels ODR-1

    Depending upon what you are playing, I would get reverb/trem if you're into clean stuff. I would get an overdrive for some heavy blues or rock sounds.

    I'd consider a BD2 to act as a pre-amp and provide some grit.

    OD's are fun and add another dimension to your sound, I like the Timmy and the BB-Pre.
    A Boss MD-200 modulation pedal or a Line-6 M5 will give you a bunch of new sounds. I'm going with the Line-6 because it has more versatility.

    Sooo, pretty much the full spectrum! :)

    @braveheart yeah, you've rumbled me, I'm expecting my cheap power supply will not be up to it (I'm sure it will be but that's not the point) so I'll have to buy a better block... that will support more pedals.... and so it continues! :lol:

    Ok, on the drive, OD pedals, how would that work with the cab sim seeing as that is already covering a fair range of sounds? It's a Behringer TM300 which is a GT2 clone I think.

    The Zoom MS70CDR has all the modulation, delay, and reverb that you will ever need + more!

    I think I'll order one today...

    First, you can usually daisy chain 4-5 analog pedals off of each power supply outlet without any trouble. Digital not so much.

    Next pedal, I’d look at an overdrive drive or preamp.

    Just to clarify... the "cab sim" is an amplifier simulator doing Fenders, Marshalls, etc?

    If you can get enough grit from the amp simulations, I'd be thinking you could skip the BD2 type pedal... otherwise, you probably need that. Does the delay do reverb? A little reverb adds a lot if you're "headphones only".

    Most 60's/70's rock was a driven amp with some sort of overdrive/distortion... and a Wah. Not much more. Reverb would just make your playing environment better.

    Break out the soldering iron and build yourself a dual box. My SHO/OCD with order switching has not left my board since I built it. The one mod I did for the SHO was add a master volume knob. Covers all sorts of boost, OD and just plain nasty. Both are easy builds.

    Definitely an OD is next for your chain. I'm loving my recently acquired Tumnus.

    Yesterday I ordered a Polytune Mini pedal, I'm tired of Snark batteries pooping out really quickly. Also ordered the Polytune clip-on and will see how the batteries do in that.
