    Yep, I bought the new MXR Envelope Filter and it is really awesome.

    I'm looking to get a new pedal board together consisting of:
    Tuner
    Envelope Filter
    Chorus
    Overdrive

    I'm not looking for a full on fuzz pedal, just something to give me good overdrive/mid distortion.

    Thanks in advance!

    Tuner:
    Sonic Research Turbo Tuner (what I use and recommend)
    Korg Pitchblack
    Peterson Strobostomp
    TC Electronic Poly Tune

    Chorus:
    Analogman Chorus (based on the EHX Small Clone)
    EHX Small Clone (Don't get the Nano Clone, it's not very bass-friendly and is reverse polarity so you can't power it on a daisy chain)
    EHX Clone Theory
    Maxon CS-9 Pro, or the Ibanez CS-9
    BOSS CEB-3
    BOSS CE-5
    Hardwire CR-7

    Overdrive/Distortion:
    BOSS ODB-3
    Humphrey Audio Badder Bass Monkey
    Xotic Bass BB or Bass RC
    HBE Hematoma
    Tech 21 XXL
    Tech 21 VT Bass
    Tech 21 Sansamp Bass Driver DI
    Way Huge Pork Loin
    Fulltone Bass-drive
    EBS Multidrive

    That should give you a lot of things to search out. It's by no means a complete listing of pedals, but should get you started with search keywords to use on here. :)

    The Pork Loin is pretty nice. Just spent half an hour at GC with it on Friday.
     
  5. I'm a fan of the Pitch black tuner, small, and easy to read.

    There are so many great dirt pedals out there, but if your looking for a vintage sounding OD try the SFT. It cuts through the mix rather well holds low end like it's nobody's business. It can go from mild OD to nice distortion, it's my go to dirt pedal!

    For chorus, I love my little Digitech Bass Multichorus
    http://www.digitech.com/flash/BassChorusDemo.php

    I just JUST got the Boss ODB-3 for overdrive. It's noisy when not played, but silent off. If the noise will be bothersome to you. Try something else. Having said that, I am a noob and it does occur to me that maybe the definiton of distortion is noise???:meh:

    Thanks for the advice friend.

    I must tell you though, I am not a fan of digitech or boss really. Both my guitar players love their boss pedals, but, I had a few one time and they did nothing for me. If you are getting the sound you want out of yours though, I am happy for you!

    I just ordered a T-Rex Sweeper Chorus.
