    First World problems I know but....

    Basically, having bought a Tech21 Boost-Overdrive pedal I also needed to get a bigger board.
    I now have room for another pedal, I've currently got a Reverb in there but don't really like/want/use a Reverb.

    My current chain is... Tuner - Boost/OD - Vibe - Boost - Flanger - Tremolo-Delay-Reverb... . (See pg581 of Show us your pedal board).

    What do you think would be a good/logical replacement for the Reverb - in any position on the board?

    More info to help?

    Have looked into....
    Octofuzz... but, don't particularly like anything more than light OD, so need a compelling argument for that.
    Currently no real use for a Looper ( got software etc) and playing with the band have never thought.... Oh if only I could add... ie we are a 5 piece anyway!
    Phaser... Well I've already got Vibe and set my Flanger very light almost like a Phaser... would a dedicated Phaser be that different?
    Another Delay passed my mind too, but... my current Delay is really set as a "amp mic'd across the room" and not used much anyway! Or... Just leave the "spare" slot empty... :cry:

    I/we play wide ranging 60s R'n' b/Blues/Rock with a smattering of newer ballad type stuff.

    So whadayuthink?

    PS.. already got an unused wah-wah

    I think 60s era music should have a fuzz at the ready - either a tone-bender style or a variation of fuzz face.

    A compressor? Not for rock music, but very useful for funk or country.

    Auto wha/envelop filter? Used sparingly can be a lot of fun.
