    Anyone know of a good multi-modulation pedal? I would want to get one that can do a couple of different settings to play around with, like flanger, phaser, chorus, etc. without it being huge like the Strymon Mobius. Any suggestions?

    I have a Source Audio Orbital Modulator which is great. Sounds really good, offers a virtually infinite array of sounds, but quite easy to dial in. It also has loads of useful options, like the choice between true and buffered bypass, tap tempo, etc. Only drawback is that it can only store two presets.

    There's a very good review of it on Youtube, made by Justnick, with very good explanation of how it works and the philosophy of the pedal.

    To be honest, they all seem big and expensive. It might be easier and cheaper to get individual mini pedals.

    Source Audio Orbital Modular was the one I found. Guilll neat me to it

    Buy an EHX Electric Mistress (= flanger + chorus) and a Small Stone (phaser). They are not expensive.

    Empress Nebulus.... I have it, and quite frankly I love it. May have to sell her though, ugh.

    Hey Logan, how's the hunt for a modulation pedal going? Lot's of good stuff here. Here's another one I came across a few weeks ago that looks promising.

    Digitech/DOD are doing some good things lately. I got one of their reissue Bifet Boost pedals which is great and I'm also planning on grabbing a Carcosa Fuzz.

    I haven't been looking at them recently. I've had marching band way too much to think about guitar sadly. :shock:

    Hmmm, marching band and stomp boxes, interesting possibilities.

    Just curious, do you play a Sousaphone in the marching band?

    The water flange setting is amazing for rich chordal soundscapes.
