    so playing around with my new Phat Phuk B today-
    and looking at Pedaltrain Nanos-
    I started thinking it would be cool to put together a board
    with only one (or zero) knob pedals.
    I know there are lots of boosts, some fuzzes, some phasers...

    let me start a list-
    Analogman Beano Boost
    Catalinbread Super Chili Picoso
    D*A*M Meathead
    EHX Small Stone
    EHX Freeze
    EHX Nano LPB-1
    EHX Holy Grail nano
    EHX Small Clone
    EHX Bassballs
    HAO Rust Ride
    Lovepedal Pickle Vibe
    Lovepedal Babyface Trem
    Mountainking Huge Box
    MXR Phase 90
    MXR Micro Chorus
    MXR Micro Amp
    Whirlwind Orange Box
    W&C Phat Phuk B

    what else, dudes?

    BBE Boosta Grande
    EHX The Mole
    HBE Germania Treble Boost
    Keeley Katana Boost
    Z.Vex Super Hard-On (and the numerous clones thereof)

    I'm sure I can eventually thing of more, but the real question would be how useful/versatile would a one/zero-knob-per-pedal pedalboard be? :bag:

    You'd be surprised what I could do with my custom wah (no external knobs), Analogman Bass Beano Boost, a modulation (babyface trem, phase 45, pickle vibe), and a Lovepedal Echo Baby. I could do everything I'd ever need to do with that.

    yep, there ya go.

    I'm thinking Small Stone, Phat Phuk B, Meathead, and Echo Baby.
    I could do almost everything I need live with that.

    ^ I'd suggest Meathead Dark - it's very rare though.

    Add to the list:
    Rogue Sounds - Savage Henry
    Colorsound - The One Knob Fuzz Box
    Mountainking Electronics - Huge Box and Ruckus

    yeah, Meathead Dark is the one I would want.
    actually, I probably won't try to assemble the rest until I can find one.

    I might cheat and use a Carbon Copy, too.

    Meathead Dark is discontinued, but the new Meathead Deluxe is tuned to go between Standard and Dark versions.

    how about graphic equalizers? or the micro synth? and if it has 2 switches can it have 2 knobs like the octavious squeezer?

    Sounds like an interesting concept.

    My own concept normally goes towards maximum versatility out of each piece of gear, but different people have different tastes.

    Technically, my HOG doesn't have any knobs. I don't know of any gear which comes close which has only one control on it, though, even if I leave the footswitch and expression pedal out of the picture.... *laugh*
