Default What's Your Guitar Pedal Board Setting?

For me, it's nothing too big. I usually have a Chorus Pedal, Tuner, Line 6 Uber Metal, the Angry Fuzz, and Boss Distortion.

By the way, feel free to post pics of ur pedal board if u want

No pics but i run my guitar / bass in a wet / wetter setup. It always starts the same:

Instrument -> Stereo Flanger -> split signal

Then the signal is divided:

Line A - distortion / wah / delay / octaver / chorus / volume

Line B - big muff / bass wah / delay / reverb / flanger / volume

While there are duplicate effects I don't own duplicate pedals (LOVE pawn shops). The most integral pieces are the delays and volume pedals. Volume pedals are relatively cheap and incredibly versatile and useful. I HIGHLY recommend one to anyone out there.

Why do you run your pedals like that? I dont mean to sound accusatory haha, I just am baffled at that strange setup.

Personally I like mine super simple. With a 1 channel amp I set it half overdriven with a whammy overdrive/distortion and my big muff which can double at low settings as another distortion/overdrive pedal. With a one channel amp you sure get to know your volume and tone know super well. I recommend anyone who wants to get better with controlling sound with guitar to get a single channel and try to play clean/overdriven/higian all in one song!

That's cool. It's not exactly standard, especially with the duplications. The main thing that isn't listed in my setup are the amps. LineA normally goes into a bright sounding Marshall combo and LineB goes into more of a low end (tone wise) bass amp.

Ultimately that setup is all about being able to create the thickest / lushest wall of sound I can make through my guitar. So on top of having left / right dynamics I also get bass / treble dynamics from either side of the sonic spectrum. The volume pedals are integral for 2 reasons, the standard balancing levels, but then you can also use it as an effect. There are two main effects that you can pull with a volume pedal, the first is tremolo (just rock it really fast), the other is more subtle, like a phaser. So I can have what sounds like a typical fuzzy guitar wall only to sweep in another level to the mix.

Think of it like an ocean with the tide coming in - you get one wave crashing and before it can completely fade away there's another one rolling in on top of it.

I used to be like you when I started out as well, super simple setup. One amp, one wah, one distortion. Then the GAS set in and I started collecting pedals and one fine day someone said "I wonder what would happen if you plugged in EVERYTHING". Haven't looked back since hahaha

Usually I use two amps to get a thicker sound. I especially enjpy the sound I get from mixing my Egnater Rebel and Vox AC30 together. Sounds really sweet.

I love amp modelling. I can run my signal through a literally INFINITE signal chain without once changing a cable.

I love the idea of modelling, but I haven't heard any good ones in my price range. :/

Guitar Rig 5 on PC is awesome, Boss GT-10 is good, GT-Pro, Pod HD 500...they're all pretty good. There are even plenty of free VST amp modellers. SHRED 1.06 is one, Freeamp, a few others.

At the end of the day, the PC solution is going to sound the best every time. You could just buy a normal, cheapy audio interface, and use PC software only.
