About a year ago I was a frequently visiting and participating member of the forum, but I moved country, leaving behind all my gear at home. I recently purchased a Squire Jazzmaster, and have a potential jam session lined up.
As someone who used to use alot of boutique effects (and still has a pedalboard of them at home), I'm kinda excited at the opportunity/excuse to start fresh and try out some new stuff.
I'm mainly looking for mass-market pedals which people think are great. I really enjoy boutique pedals but with the concept I may eventually have to move, the concept of selling mass-market pedals seems to be easier, without incurring such a big loss.
I'm mainly looking for a decent OD, modulation (chorus / pitch shifting) and a delay. Any recommendations? I play indie rock / shoegaze, main influences being Interpol, Radiohead, Secret Machines, Wilco and Tame Impala. I'm mostly likely going to be renting various tube amps (hopefully), probably Fenders.
Apologies for the vagueness of the post. My current inclination is to build an all Boss/EHX board, but if anyone has any alternatives, that would be great.
