I’m looking to build a new rig that is somewhat of a downsized rig that is a bit more portable - with a view to start playing live again. My current rig is a marshall jmp1 preamp and 100 watt dual monoblock el34 beast that weighs too much!
In a few months I will be buying a 50w lunch box head and will hopefully have a small rack for a handful of pedals! Which leads me to my question. Im on a tight budget with regards to modulation pedals. Can anyone suggest any good but affordable pedals that would be uses in a cover band situation? I’m happy to use mini versions of pedals to save space and the sort of music I would love to play ranges from classic rock/hard rock/metal, the Police, Genesis, some blues, Van Halen, Rush to modern pop rock/indie, and modern metal.
Delays and reverbs are already catered for and the the rig can take advantage of midi/ switch jack features that effects may have as a big bonus. True bypass is not essential as I will be switching them in and out in loops.
I’m not a gear manufacturer snob, so happy to go cheap IF IT SOUNDS GOOD!
