Over the past couple years, I decided I was going to work effects into what I do, even though my gigs aren't really effects driven styles of music (oldies of the 50's, 60's and 70's, with some occasional sub work doing modern and classic hard rock). At one point I had 8 pedals on my board, including a Digitech Whammy Pedal, but that was the first to go because all I was using was the detuner for chorus, and I hated chorus back in the 80's and I discovered I still hate it now, so why bring a 50 lb chorus pedal? Eventually I scaled down to an envelope filter (usually the Boss SYB-3's auto filter), a Micro Pog, an OC-2, a modded Tech 21 British or a Hartke Bass Attack, and a VT Deluxe. The envelope filter ended up getting used on part of one song just for fun, and I'd get dirty looks from everyone else when I used it any other time, so off it went after a couple months. The OC-2 was really cool on Hollywood endings on our last song of each set, and occasionally I might find a song where an 8-string bass type sound with the Micro Pog worked. Turns out the only effect that seems to work for me in my bands is a little overdrive, so I'm now down to the VT Deluxe as my only effect, and really, if I didn't need the splitter function to double on upright and the Ampeg emulations for when I'm forced to run DI, I'd probably just bag it, too. I'm not happy about it...now I have all these pedals I'm not using and I love pedals. I need to start a band where I can use pedals and have some fun. But I don't want to take the pay cut. So I'm advertising for a band in the Central Fla area that can work around my current schedule, play music where I need lots of pedals, and pay me really well. Any takers?
