    Nice Les!

    I run my dirts different than you. I use a clean Fender Blackface/Silverface amp with high headroom and use the pedals for the entire gain sound. I stack a lot and I try to pull a Marshall sound out of it sometimes.

    All that said, I still think the Pettyjohn stuff would work for me. I'm particularly interested in the Gold - which is their Marshall in a box pedal. I'm always looking for the perfect pedal in that genre to turn a mid scooped crystal clean Fender into a raging mid heavy Plexi. I also think I'd like their Lift pedal, for a nice boost. I'm using the Jackson Audio Prism for that now, and I love that pedal so it would take a lot to move it off now.

    Thanks prsr! Your approach is no doubt equally effective; lots of players prefer that approach!

    I haven’t tried the Gold, because I have that HXDA with its Plexi thing going, but the demos sound pretty nice to me.

    I like the Pettyjohn stuff, basically because it kind of sounds like I ran the guitar signal through a bunch of nice, vibey studio gear. I even use it for clean sounds with that Lone Star, that’s kind of a Blackface style amp the way I set it up, plus I stuck in NOS GE tubes like Fender used to use.

    But let’s face it, we all hear and do things differently, and I don’t want my friends to be disappointed if they buy something I like, so I try not to say, “Buy this item, you’ll like it.” Because maybe you won’t!

    My latest minimalist board.

    Got my new OD, a custom collab with Lemon Sundrop Electronics. I called it C.O.D. for Custom Overdrive. The contour can be set to match very closely to the amp tone, so I use it more like a driven extension of the base tone instead of adding coloration. I love it.

    I could still use a second gain stage of some sort, so thinking of maybe swapping the Spark Mini for some sort of switchable clean/dirty boost, like the RC Booster v2 maybe. Any suggestions?

    Neat and sweet! I have a couple of suggestions, but they aren’t clean/dirty boosts; more like clean/color boosts, so not much the type you’re interested in.

    Tube screamer does me right. I was recently impressed by a Way Huge Green Rhino. Depends on how much dirt you need. The Pettyjohn would also work well. Dealer's choice.

    Well as it so happens, I just got back from a trip to Nashville. I went down for Summer NAMM and while I was there I went pedal shopping.

    I got the PettyDrive V2! It sounds incredible. After seeing it on Les's board and also on a friend's board who plays similar music as I do, it went on my mental list of things to try. There was one in almost mint condition in a used case and I tried it and fell in love. Very nice dual overdrive. I'm glad I finally got on board and now I want to try a Pettyjohn Gold for the Plexi sound. Really impressed with the Pettyjohn stuff.

    Oh, and I also met up with my friends from XTS and picked up a couple more of their pedals. The Fermata is the best compressor I've heard and I've tried tons, and the Shapecharger is a nice boost for solos.

    The latest incarnation below.

    My man Jeffrey at Lemon Sundrop Electronics came through with a sweet custom buffer/booster (top right). The right two jacks are an always-on buffer, while the left two jacks go to an up-to 8db clean boost/buffer. You can run one or the other, or patch them together. I'm running into the buffer, then out through the other pedals, and then back in to add the boost at the end of the chain. A handy little box. It freed up the room to get my SL Drive back on the board.

    some really great pedal porn in this thread. I have nothing of value to show (I use a BOSS ME-80 in manual mode and run it into one of those Monoprice 15W tube amps, so it's cheap) but I felt the need to let you all know I've finally been through all 49 pages. :lol:

    My Pedal board is quite basic and consists of just the Boss GT100 and Digitech Trio+ as the Boss GT100 isn't great as a looper and the Digitech adds bass and drums to give the full band effect. I don't (or haven't) used it for amp modelling but you can still use it as a pedal board and use the 4-cable method to place pedals/effects in the right order. I was always a guitar straight into amp player and the Boss was my way of experimenting with pedals without going out and buying individual ones - cheaper too.

    Here's mine that I built this year... Nothing exotic, but it covers all my needs (some old pedals that I've had for years are mixed in.) I'm a sucker for phasers and vibe-type pedals. The Toneprint feature on the TC Helix is awesome - allows the Helix to emulate all flavors of phasers. The GE-7 is on all the time. The Keeley Caverns covers my basic (and far-out) reverb and delay needs. Big fan of my amp's crunch channel, so I'll either use the Soul Food as a boost on that channel; or alone or in conjunction with the Bad Monkey on the clean channel. Everything on the top row (except for the tuner) runs through the amp's effects loop, and the bottom row goes into the front of the amp. The box on the top right is actually a painted lacquer box I picked up years ago at a flea market in Moscow (depicting some Russian fairy tale) - it's now my pick box and also provides all the "mojo" for my pedalboard (lots of sentimental value in that little wooden box!) :)

    On a tonal journey, as far as pedals goes. It’s already been fun!

    OD’s, phasers, chorus, delays, boosts, etc. Such a great experience.

    Call me “Renaissance Man”!

    I agree - pedals are fun! The smartest thing I did this year was sell my modeling amp (with all its built-in effects) and returned to a tube amp, along with building up my collection of pedals again. Glad I kept my 80's chorus pedal - you never know when you're going to break out some tunes from The Fixx or Echo and the Bunnymen :D

    I used to have a few tube amps and all kinds of pedals. I do not play out anymore. I only play for my own enjoyment/recording. Three years ago I bought a Boss GT-100 and sold the rest of my gear. It does everything I need and sounds great. I have a few pedals I made my myself I put in it's loop. Looking to make my own FRFR cab and amp soon.

    Great board!!! I like how you set that up, I do a similar thing with mine, running the top row into the loop.

    Good call running that Soul Food as a boost into your amp. I was so sick of hearing about guys and their Klon style pedals all the time, blah blah blah... then I broke down and got one myself, and it’s the perfect boost! Tightens up bass, more mids, but not in the way a tubescreamer does, much less harsh. So now I’m one of THOSE guys.

    I’ll have to check out the caverns as well, that looks like fun.

    Agree on the Soul Food... it really is a magic little pedal.
