North-West one, thats hell of rig ! How do you stop tripping up when you're dancing the light fantastic across those stomp boxes. The Health and Safety Nazis wont like you !!

Seriously though, theres some fantastic kit there although, from what I read, the CS3 can be/ should be modified. Maybe yours works properly. I'm trying to get my head around Compressor / Sustainers.

I see you have a Boss V wah. I had one up to a year ago, but the main board died and Boss wanted almost as much as a new pedal for a new board. Because it was all surface mounted components, it was written off. Got a morley now which I like. Optical, switchless and can be tweaked inexpensively. I was looking for George Dennis but the one tried was remarkable on clean, absolutely the dogs sphericals, but with O/d or distortion seem to loose something.

Thanks everyone for their advice. I'm still tinkering, trying different pedals in different parts of the chain.

Got some JRC4558D Opamp chips and sockets arriving soon so it'll be out with the soldering iron. I'm looking for a Daphon OD20 pedal. The're relatively cheap secondhand and made of metal. Although made in the ROC, its actually quite good and easily modded. From what I understand, its got part of a Boss DS1 circuit and part of Tube screamer. A simple two way switch can fitted to click between the two. I'm still reading up on this.

Not quite as flash as caucajuns's find, but I've got a Boss ME30 of the evilbay for pratting about with - my rig is of course, 12000 miles away - and it's OK. Not brilliant, but sufficient for my porpoises in that it has a lovely reverb and a nice delay. It has distortions and overdrives out the yin-yang, and I'll have to play around with settings to get one I like as they all seem a bit OTT, to me anyway.

It also has the dinkiest expression/volume/wah pedal I've ever used; it has all of about 2 inches of pedal arc - not even roughly enough for a decent wah!! Laughing

Bear in mind, too, that the only amp I have is an old 15w Gear4music POS, so my opinions are coloured by that nasty - but loud! - crouching heap!! Laughing

OK... enough's' enough! I'll delete everything that's not to do with Steve's original post!
