Unsolicited Weirdo suggestion: Vibrato pedal.

PS - NUX Mod Core multi modulation pedal. It has vibrato, chorus, phase, Leslie, flange, univibe, and a couple others. Lotsa wiggle, little real estate. NOT good for adjusting on the fly, but great sounding and a heckuva bargain.

I find playing at our church a delay with presets is invaluable. Currently I use a DD-500. I get the BPM for each song preset with the appropriate mode, repeat, level, etc then I can cruise. I used a Boss DD-20 before and liked it's tones a bit more. But the primary feature I have grown to like is the presets. The DD-500 has a modulation feature too.

he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.
For the director of music. On my stringed instruments, .....with appropriate amounts of overdrive and delay.

I think you got it covered.

The only thing I would consider is adding an outlet for a USB to power an iPad attached to the mic stand.

Chorus for me, used in small doses. For something a little different, I`ve been tempted by the Mosaic 12 string simulator. By Digitech I think. You could also cover some chorus territory with it.

That is a *great* suggestion. It would take up no space on the pedalboard. No more worrying about forgetting to charge up your iPad.

Nothing on your board is reverb, right? Do your delays cover your "space" requirements?

I only ask because I am a reverb whore.

Thanks but I'm old school and still use a songbook with chord charts.

Where are you using all of this?
At home?
Church?
Bar gigs?

The cheapest suggestion is to try and warm up to the tremolo effect. I don't have tap tempo on anything, and it may be nice. But Deluxe Reverbs don't have tap tempo and it doesn't seem to hurt their popularity.

But maybe you just want a change, and have money burning a hole in your pocket.

Chorus: My suggestion is to get a flanger, preferably a 4 knob, preferably an old Boss BF-2.
It will flange.
If it has a "Manual" knob, it can also do a filter matrix type thing where you stop the sweep and it becomes a stationary comb filter.
If you set the regen to zero, it becomes a chorus. The difference between flanger and chorus is that flanging uses regeneration, chorus does not.

Davywhizz beat me to it on the suggestion of the Digitech Mosaic. I don't have/need one but I'm looking.

I was going to suggest a DC power supply, but it looks like you have one mounted underneath the board.
Keep in mind that if you get one of them thar fancy digital pedals recommended by others, it may want its own separate power supply.
That leads to "I think we're going to need a bigger board".

How is all of your impedance matching and true bypassing and interfacing? Have you ever examined it? Have you thought about a true bypass strip or a switching system like the Carl Martin Octa Plus or the BYOC 8 way switcher or a simple mechanical TBP switcher like Road Rage or LoopMaster? Of course, now we're definitely into a bigger board.

No need to thank me or the rest if us for helping you to spend more money than you wanted.

Basically I have a big board and a small board. Here is the big board. Go to the 3 :00 mark you see the USB thingy.

Here is the 'small board' with just the essentials. Actually I use this most of the time because it's easy to transport and has everything I really need.

The only thing I would add if you've got most of what you need covered and don't really need another 'effect' is some sort of always on 'tone conditioning' pedal.

I have this Tremelo Pedal on my board and I am very happy with it.

It's the 2nd ZVEX Pedal I own....the first being a ZVEX Super Hardon.

The thing about a tremelo is, if you need it, you need it......so buy a good one.

I think if you do a little research on this pedal and listen to the sound samples.....you will be impressed.

I tried using the trem this morning and I'm beginning to think I like tremolo when someone else is using it. It just doesn't seem to fit me.

I dunno yet! I'm thinking maybe trying another semi-squishy compressor for funky rhythms since the Tonepress wouldn't go there. Maybe a chorus? But I can already get a pseudo chorus effect by stacking my two delays.

I'm still considering possibilities.

'Always on' pedals if you can spare 1h 12mins.

Personally I'm intrigued by the Hudson Broadcast germanium pre-amp/fuzz (not featured in the vid) - even if only for the looks.

I just wanted to say that nobody should be paying almost $300 for a used Flint. A new one is $300.

Also, I'll see your MIMoen and raise it to an American Standard!
