The reverse mode is useful for bowed attack-type textures when using fuzz, but not having some dry signal in the mix seems limiting to me. Maybe it will need to be placed before modulation effects for better results, though I like feeding the shimmer verb hi-band phasing. Good to know regarding the TC units.

The shimmer setting on the Polara seems more stable than its MS-70 CDR counterpart, but most of the other modes currently strike me as a bit meh compared to other options on hand (with guitar, at least).

I don't remember specifically what setting I liked when I had the Polara last, but it was really nice on bass.
Listen, the WORLD is my board. All of the pedals are on it, just out of my reach..

It's been awhile since I've had a board. These are all I have left and I doubt it will ever change. :joy:

Yeah, I agree that it's preferable to have the option (I made a custom reverse TonePrint for the FlashBack 2 that goes from mixed to full wet at higher volume using the mash button). But if I can only choose one, I generally prefer full wet (used to mostly use the Bumblefoot reverse TonePrint on the original FlashBack instead of the stock one). DigiTech seems to agree (I think reverse on the Obscura is full wet too), but in the end it is a matter of preference and what kinda vibe you're going for.

After a kind reception in the mini pedals thread, figured I might as well go whole hog and show my "board":

Image

Things get swapped around depending if I'm playing solo or band, but this is the core layout.

Detailed description:
NSFW: show
Main pedal chain:
sound source>
Kokko Amp Sim > George Price optical volume pedal > BOSS GE-7 Equalizer > Caline Snake Bite Reverb > BOSS CH-1 Super Chorus > Landtone Dual Looper >
(LOOP 1: Rowin Trelicopter > Tomsline Harmonizer > Danelectro PB&J Delay > Danelectro Hash Browns Flanger >
LOOP 2: Eno OCT-1 Octaver > Tomsline Chorus > Kokko Vibrato > Mosky Spring Reverb > Tomsline Mod Station > Rowin Nano Phaser > Caline Drifter Delay >)
BOSS ME-30 Multieffect (ring mod patches!) > Idiotbox Mad Doctor Stutter > Tomsline Mario Bitcrusher > Landtone ABY Box >
(Line A: BOSS RC-2 Loop Station > NUX Time Force > stereo out to mixer
Line B: BOSS RC-2 Loop Station > Rowin Loop Station > Kokko Vibe > Tomsline Slow Hand Volume Swell > Kokko Space Reverb > mono out to mixer)

Mixer effects loop:
Mtl.asm Count to 5 > NUX Tape Core


Sound source is usually either a Realistic Concertmate 500 or a Yamaha PSR-47. (But also sometimes Monotron, spring reverb tank, kalimba, accordion etc. I have a function generator to start with pure waves for drone sets. For shits and giggles, I've also used a guitar, laying down on a tabletop with an ebow.)

The giant tupperware-like tubs the pedals live in were $5 each at the craft store, where they were called "scrapbook holders". They have lids that snap on for travel and all the awkward cables help hold everything well enough in place to take to from gigs/practices/etc.

Way to go with the combo of cheap and spendy pedals! My OCD is triggered harcore tho.

Those "boards" are awesome :lol:

You liking that snake bite reverb? I had one for a while. Sounded really good, but some of the controls were realllly subtle. Might have just been mine.

Pretty big fan of the Snake Bite. It's a huge cut above all the other cheapo tweakable reverbs (the ENO one is kinda cruddy even by by standards). I tend to set it and forget it until I realize the sounds are too over-the-top/not over-the-top enough for what I'm doing at the moment and then tweak accordingly. The low-pass filter does some stuff, but I don't get much use out of the Centre Frequency (or whatever CFR is supposed to be). The pre-delay is nice.

It also works great to murkify vocals if you decide to toss off a goofy country song: https://clyp.it/bkdf302d

I had one for a while but flipped it for something else that grabbed my fancy. It was a good reverb, especially for the price, but yeah I didn't think the CFR did much.

New board pic with a few updates here and there. The Chase Bliss Warped Vinyl Hi Fi just came in and it's by far my favorite Chase Bliss ever. The chorus tones are so fucking good on it. Combined with my Tensor it sounds like heaven.
