I could, but damn it I like each and every one of them as they are! Especially the Biyang Metal End. Goes from a slightly overdriven Plexi, to full blown Peavey 5150

You don't need reverb, just stack two EQs together with a really long cable

Haha well the Metal End is an amp simulator pedal, so if everyone is willing to suffer Zoom-quality I could plug it into my UMC204HD interface and try* and play a little solo at the next SosMeet...

Doesn't matter if you bought it new or second hand, as long as it is registered to your account.
The bundle has some good stuff in there and lists at $500.

I am so tempted by the H9, I've nearly bought one on several occasions then I look at it's limitations and decide 'no, to not for me'... If it could string two or, preferably (or more) three virtual pedals together in a singe patch it would be brilliant but it only does a single virtual pedal at a time (admittedly some of them are, effectively two VPs but not many and not particularly useful ones for me). :headbang:

It is both my pedal of the week and virtual effects of the week. :)
A lot to get through no doubt, although I bought it as much for keyboards as guitars.
I probably wouldn't have jumped on it but someone very local was selling an immaculate one and with the software thrown in I was able to rationalise that I'd only paid £250 for it as I was going to spend £200 on the software bundle anyway.
It will be fun to play with for sure and the iPad app looks handy for tweaking.

I'm thinking if I used flat patch cables, I could squeeze the Ultra Drive in between the BOSS DD-20 and the Morley Bad Horsie, and have it go from the Morley, into the Ultra Drive, then into the BOSS TU-3 tuner. I know you're not supposed to put drives into tuners but I'm not even sure it'll fit into that space to start with

Two things, the signal doesn't need to follow the pedals order on the board, and... four distortions!!!!!??? :D

I have no shame in my love of gain!

EDIT: They also have different sounds of gain! And not on the board is my Fuzz Face clone built into a tobacco tin...

I’ll also confess here... I have tried all the distortions on simultaneously.

The results were AWESOME

I know, only four. He needs at least two more to match me. (The board itself is a Pedaltrain Novo 18).

I would have more, but I've used up all the PSU outputs! :D

I have one, admittedly it's a TC Dual Vintage Overdrive so it's sort of two but against that the amp is single channel (extreme single channel too with only volume and a single tone control).

Well if we're showing off pedal boards:

3 in, 3 out. :)

It is actually slightly relative to the thread though as at the back left of the boss pedal board is one of those £35 reverb pedals.
It is to reverb what strawberryade is to strawberries. I only use it on two tracks as a general, reverb-like effect. At some point i will replace it.
