Les Paul or Telecaster --> Roland AF-60 --> Avenger --> 4x12 + 2x15

I'm looking to add a great delay pedal, any suggestions?

i tried some rack gear with my hot rod, it sucked tone, tried some pedals and they sucked, so i started playing with out effects, then i decided to get a used space box for a good price, and it works great with my hot rod so now i use a little reverb. i use a hughes and kettner tube factor for a little boost only, i don't use the ovedrive function at all. been thinking about getting a fulltone boost pedal or a klon to see how they are.

This is a great opportunity to plug the xotic blender pedal, its a loop that lets you blend pedals with a bypass signal at any ratio you want!!!!!!! I have everything but my gain and volume boost through it with about 30% of the dry signal mixed in straight into the front of the amp. (you could also use it in the loop).

Here's an update from me. Seems something happened to my account for the forum.

After only using the G-Major for a short period, I've upgraded to a Nova System for my loop. Its very user friendly and flexible: it provides me a "pick up and go" rig which I can plug into a clean amp or direct. Built rock solid, which many midi foot controllers are lacking (plastic!) and helped push me to getting it. The overdrive/distortion is voiced similar to my Decatone/SLO-100 (some might disagree I guess). The few effects I use sound great. Its a great value when you can find a deal on ebay.

I may add a G-System one day and might run the Nova System in one of the G-Systems frontend loops (for a frontend delay, might try the EQ also). Its just an idea right now though. I'm also curious if you could set the SLO-100 "hot" and use the G-System to manage frontend and loop volumes in order to go from clean, crunch, mid-gain lead, and high gain lead with the two channels.

T.C. Electronics G major with a Decatone....simply wonderful, and highly recommended IMHO. Every effect needed, done right. No distortion in this bad boy though. However I'm playing through a Soldano so that is not even close to an issue!

I rarely use either, but these are the only two I own:

1. Roland RE-20 Space Echo re-issue (used only in the FX loop in my Mesa/Boogie DC-3).
2. TC Electronic G Major (typically used only with my Engl E530 preamp in a DI).

No dirt pedals in front of my Soldano. Actually, no pedals of any kind.

It just seems to get in the way of my noise making if I'm honest.

Nothing against those who use them, but I can't stand to have anything between my guitar and the amp.

I just got a Turbo Tuner also (http://www.turbo-tuner.com/). It is my favorite tuner yet. Extremely accurate 100% TRUE strope tuner with true bypass. This thing works great and itís MADE IN THE USA!! Built tough and small. After I bought this, I sold my Peterson and my rackmount Korg.



Here's what my board looks like this week:

Bama,
Just wondering how the SCF compares with say the Rotosphere in terms of leslie effect? I sold my Roto to scale down a bit, but I love the leslie sound.

Also, I noticed you had a Klon a while back, can you comment on the differences between the CAE and Klon? I gave a Klon to a buddy who plays 6 nights a week and it doesnt look like I'll be getting in back.. shocked Just looking for something different. Thanks.

The Klon is much better than the CAE Boost. I'll probably be switching back to the Klon soon.

The SCF has a clear and much cleaner sound than the Rotosphere, but the Rotosphere has the Leslie "ramp" effect that I miss sometimes. I'll probably we switching back to the Rotosphere too.

My pedalboard is constantly changing. I like to switch things up, but I always seem to go back to the Klon, Clyde, & Rotosphere everytime. undecided

Thanks Bama....though my Roto is gone, it was a bit noisy and took up too much space grin!! I did some searching and found an SCF, should be here sometime next week.

I agree the Klon is magical, guess I'll have to place an order with Bill. The Clyde has remained on my board for about 2 years.....

I guess I should have described the difference (in my opinion of course) between the CAE boost and the Klon. The CAE boost is a fine pedal. Does a great job of pushing the front end of your amp. Adds a nice bit of low end too. But unfortunately it adds high end too. I know that the on-line description says it does not, but it does. In fact, most boost pedals I have tried do this even though they say the do not. The Klon has that great "treble" knob in the middle. I always keep it fully counter clockwise and never have a "boosted highs" problem. The Klon also has a little bit of low end but not too much to take away the original tone of the amp. I do not notice any mid boost in the Klon, but some say they do. Iíve had three Klons over the years and I have another one on order. Itís a great boost pedal and the best in my opinion.

The TC Electronic SCF is dead quiet. I like my chorus to be subtle (almost unnoticeable) and the SCF can give you beautiful sounding chorus. Set it to the "pitch modulation" mode (set the knobs to how I have them in the photo above) and you can get the best Leslie simulation that any chorus pedal could ever give. Sounds like a single speaker Fender Vibrotone. But the TC dos not do the Leslie ďrampingĒ and the Rotosphere nails it. Another problem I have with the TC is that you have plug it into a standard outlet with a non-removable AC cord. This can be a pain if using a pedalboard. Also the external bypass on the TC is a bit of an issue. First of all its 1/8Ē jack an itís a momentary switch. It would be nice if it were ľĒ and a latching switch.

As for the Rotosphere, I agree it is real noisy and takes up a lot of space. Thatís probably the two biggest complaints about the Rotosphere. I also do not think the Rotosphere sounds that great with the OD channel of my SLO, but it sounds OK. It sounds awesome through the Crunch/Clean channel. When I use the Rotosphere, I normally switch the SLO to the clean (with mini toggle set to clean) channel and use a Zendrive in front of it. It just sounds better to me than running it straight into the OD channel. I just like the fact that is an analog pedal too. Sounds good to me bypassed and I like the metal switches that are surprisingly quiet. I canít do this live, but running the slave out of your SLO into the Rotosphere and using the R/L outs into a right and left amp sounds phenomenal!!! But the SLOís loop does not like the Rotosphere at all.
