    I just realized I've got $1850 in my current pedalboard! Never thought of the cost before.

    I've probably got another couple grand in pedals sitting in a Rubbermaid bin that I don't use now, but are too good to get rid of -- I might want them again someday.

    At an average of $80/gig, I'm glad I can afford to work.

    I had the same thought the other day but stopped short of calculating the total. It's definitely more than any single guitar I own and even possibly my amp. I guess you don't notice the overall cost when buying pedals one at a time, and all of a sudden you've got a sizeable investment sitting on the floor.

    On a side note, how do you find the TC Sub n Up?

    I like it. The "classic" setting sounds good as an octave up when combined with an overdrive.

    The "polyphonic" setting allows a nice 12-string effect octave up, or nice fat synth sounds when combined with lower octaves.

    The "toneprint" lets you program tons of interesting effects. I have a nice combo organ sound for fat comping.

    I don't use it much, but sometimes it just hits the spot.

    Out of curiosity I did the math, I'm sitting at around $1200 AUD. :shock:

    Didn't think it would be that high, it just sort of happened. Thankfully, I'm pretty happy with the current setup and may be, dare I say, done. :rofl:

    To put it into perspective, that's more than I spent on all four of my guitars and about twice what my amp cost.

    I had a Sub n up and it was a great, versatile pedal, did all of the things you mentioned well, but it was lacking something for me. I happened on to a Foxrox Octron 3 and found what I was missing, amazing and inspiring analog octave sounds that pushed my (arguably still) limited creativity further.

    I suppose at the end of the day if all these shiny little boxes push creativity, then they're worth it. :dude:

    Just don't tell my wife what they cost. ;)

    I'm on a budget but already interested in pedals. If you could choose a first pedal for an all around type of deal, what do you think about the big muff tone wicker? For a dirty crunchy blues rock.

    Lovely little board! Is that a Shure wireless with a tuner pedal on it? Never saw one before!

    Yup Shure GDX digital. The Receiver is pedal-sized and has a built-in tuner, meter for transmitter battery and finds the cleanest frequency automatically.

    The outfit with Transmitter (rechargeable), Receiver, Power Supply and Charger is about $500. I've had it for at least 5 years and it is quite reliable.

    How does it sound?

    Which is to say, it shouldn’t sound like anything and should be completely transparent to your sound!

    I take it you don’t get any odd digital artifacts?

    JF-02 Ultimate Drive = Fulltone OCD
    JF-03 Crunch Distortion = Mi Audio Crunch box
    JF-04 High Gain Distortion = Marshall Shredmaster

    JF-05 Classic Chorus = Boss CE-2?
    JF-06 Vintage Phase = MXR phase 90
    JF-07 Classic Flanger = ?
    JF-08 Digital Delay = ?
    JF-09 Tremolo = Diaz Tremodillo

    JF-10 Dynamic Compressor = MXR Dyna Comp.
    JF-11 6 Band EQ - MXR 6 Band EQ

    JF-12 Voodoo Octave (Fuzz Ultimate Octave) = Fulltone Ultimate Octave
    JF-13 AC Tone = Tech 21 Character, Liverpool
    JF-14 American Sound = Tech 21 Character, Blonde

    JF-15 California Sound = Tech 21 Character, California

    JF-16 British Sound = Tech 21 Character, British

    JF-17 Extreme Metal = EHX Metal Muff

    (JDI-01 DI Box)
    (JF-30 A/B Switch)

    JF-31 Noise Gate = ?

    JF-32 Plexi Drive = Wampler Plexi-drive (???)

    JF-33 Analog Delay = ?

    JF-34 US Dream = Suhr Riot
    JF-35 Pocket Metal = Pocket Metal Muff
    JF-36 Sweet Baby = Mad Professor Sweet Honey

    JF-37 Analog Chorus = ?

    I have the jf-04, it's pretty cool. Only thing is it won't work now. Plugged up correctly, switch works, led works. No sound though.
