The subject is so vast.
it’s taken me close to 20 years to find something I’m really happy with.
ive used / played
with most of the ones already mentioned and many more ( including some very pricey ones) after the honeymoon period with them, leave me itching for something. I have now settled on one of a couple for a light hair basic tone and a couple of options for another medium gain to stack with it.
I have found that it’s rare to find one singular pedal that works perfectly for me, and fit within the bands mixes
current favourites are for lower gain/ basic tone : ehx bass soul food, joyo orange juice, Palmer ubertreiber, Tc spark
and to add for ‘more’ - mosky b box, caline orange juice, ehx crayon
