Suggestions on pedals for ABG.

    Looks like I will be picking up a Tacoma Thunderchief in the coming weeks. I am curious as to what kind of pedals people have found to be useful. I have a decent OD setup that I like that I will try out. I have been thinking about maybe some chorus. Also the analogman compressors interest me. Any feedback would be great. Thanks everybody.

    FWIW, going to be mostly acoustic rock, but with latitude for an interesting tone.

    Get a 7 band EQ. I have found 2 or 3 bands are not enough for an ABG.
  3. For recording I find Compression and a good 7-10 band EQ is a big help to get just the right sound. Live I use a BP-8 that provides the compression and chorus. I will sometimes use a bit of chorus or flange and occasionally maybe whip on some envelope follower or octaver on some funky stuff.

    I use my micro rig on my ABG:
