    Three! I got that free TC Electronics Polytune Mini...and it needs external power.

    Next pedals, in no particular order:

    POG 2 Polyphonic (not the mini, want two octaves up and down)
    Strymon El Capistan
    Strymon Blue Sky (or maybe go for it and get the new combo pedal of both El and Blue Sky, the Big Sky)


    Need a compressor and OD to think about.

    can you plug a head right into your Vox speaker? That's how i'm running my JTM45 head, it's just plugged into my DSL401's speaker.

    I can. Never thought of that, but then again, want to split my signal into stereo at some point.

    Pretty cool all tube for a c-note though, isn't it? I've read the tubes is comes with are not so hot so buy some replacements right away.

    But I won't have stereo if I go into the same speaker...

    Was going to get a Wet and split the signal at some point. Probably not for a bit...

    Doing a lot of thinking and think I need to take a course on Pro Tools or something. Also, more music theory.

    true, not if the same speaker, but it would be weird to run them both at the same time. and I bet you the 5 watter would overpower the solid state.

    worth a look for $100, then in a year or two let it go on craigslist for $65 and put that towards the tax that you'll owe on a Matchless or a Marshall.

    Still just really kicking shit around. Took the first step and got that Muff (arrives tomorrow) and I plan to buy a few more pedals in the coming months. Need to practice so much more, learn so much more about a DAW...any DAW...and theory.

    with the muff, turn your amp to a clean signal and have the muff provide the overdrive. i like the 70's Marshall setting, but i'm way biased. on the pedal just start with the dials at 12 o'clock and tweak them from there. Odds are your first reaction will be something like "oh shit".


    i'm meh on the volume pedal since you can just swell with your volume knobs. my vote would be for a wah or a chorus or a reverb or a delay. or a repaired DS2.

    Yeah, need to get the DS2 looked at.

    I have several in mind for what might be the next pedal.

    POG 2
    Superego
    El Capistan
    Blue Sky
    Ditto

    those pedal are all really out there. a wah and chorus can be scooped up for a fraction of the price of one of those (a CH-1 can be picked up from music go round for like $50)

    i've played that before, it's very good.


    honestly, consider the Line6 DL4 (I just texted you one for $160). It's basically the industry standard now and you can program different delays/tempos/effects into 3 different memory banks. srs, give it a look.

    I'll keep my open for a used one locally. I agree they're very much in use and I should look into one.
