I don't know, probably a Wampler Tumnus or JHS Muffuletta. I have an extensive list of pedals I want, though.

Ten others I want besides those two:

1. Strymon Mobius
2. Strymon BigSky
3. Neunaber Immerse
4. EHX POG2
5. GigRig G2
6. Origin Cali76 Compact Deluxe Compressor
7. Boss BD-2w
8. AMT Legend P2
9. Ernie Ball Volume Pedal
10. Van Weelden Royal Overdrive

I'll probably never own half of those though. Some are way expensive.
Guitars:
2x Carvin Bolt
DC145
AE185
Ibanez RG1570 and Mikro
2x Fender MIM Strat
Ovation Celebrity

Amps:
V3M
Legacy 3
VT16
Quilter 101 Mini Head
Carvin Vintage 1 x 12 cab
Carvin Legacy II 2 x 12 cab

I just got a Freqout over the weekend.
This is the first pedal I have purchased in over 10 years.

That seems super fun.

I'd love one of EH's organ pedals, but Santa may have to bring that...

Part of me wants a MXR 10-band EQ to use as a "non-clipping overdrive", Slayer-style (as opposed to my current usage of an Ibanez TS-9 with the drive set to 0).

I just picked up a EHX Canyon as a new / different delay pedal.
I wanted to have just basic delay functions and this one also has a looper and a bunch of other bells and whistles (reverse delay, reverbs (which I never use! LOL), sample /hold).

It packs a bunch into a tiny foot print. Very cool
Current Carvins:
2010 Bolt (Candy Red Metallic)
2013 Bolt Plus (Koa)
2016 Black n Blue VSEVEN
2017 TT SCB6

Wish List
Some sort of multiscale 6 HSS with RAD ASH
JB Numbers Guitar (July sale has given me the itch!)

The only one on this list that I own is the Mobius. I prefer the modulation effects in the Mobius over my H9. While I keep eyeing new delays, reverbs and boots/distortion/eq/fuzz, I am set for mods with the Mobius!

I snagged the KFK version of that pedal a few years ago for mostly the same reason, but now use it judiciously for actually tweaking an EQ, and maybe boosting signal a little.

If you want a solid boost pedal, check out the Boss FB-2. It can do perfectly flat boost, or contoured with a mild EQ, plus it has the party piece of turning into a quasi cocked-wah meets ebow effect when the pedal is held down. I had a CAE booster prior to that, and sold it shortly after getting the Boss (output volume was about the same). Or the full-size TC Spark Booster is pretty solid, with a two part active EQ section, though I preferred the Boss.

I think my pedal days have run their course. Maybe one day I'll grab a turbo Rat again, but I've been too pleased by the Dark Matter to keep looking for dirt. With so many pedals being digital, the high end multi-fx are making more sense to my pocketbook.

Huh; I had never heard of that pedal before, but it seems to be about exactly what I'm looking for. Is the boost itself completely clean? I've seen conflicting reports on this; some people are claiming that the pedal applies some distortion when the character knob is turned up (which it would be for me, I need that mid-hump).

Not gonna lie, my favorite aspect of the MXR eq is the individual red LED in each slider. :lol:

I did not find that the pedal itself created any distortion, but that mid hump does create additional output. It's not a passive style tone circuit from the sound of it, but that mid hump is more like an adjustable mid boost. Because of that, it might drive an amp into distortion, and that could be what people are hearing. Used on a pristine clean channel, I never found it to add anything other than just "more." I even used it on a piezo setup, to drive the signal into the PA, and had to add mids to help balance out the highs. There was zero distortion that I could hear.

The buffer seems fine, and I didn't notice any artifacts/tone-suck. Plays nicely with other pedals I have (didn't try a fuzz factory with it). I found the pedal by accident when a local used music-equipment store had some factory 2nds for cheap. I still can't figure out why it's a 2nd; paint is flawless, the internals are clean, and nothing acts weird on the pedal.

What, it doesn't remind you of a PA?

Seeing it on a dark stage is handy, and it looks cool. Very useful pedal.

This the same two pedals I have been considering as a boost in front of the amp , How does the Para EQ with Boost sound . I have also been considering a Fractal FX8 , all the effects I would ever need and then some and top quality effects , but they look difficult and complicated to setup and use and I'm terrible with this stuff .

I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Don't you have a Kemper as well? Are you running it in front of everything? I've got one coming in today so I'm anxious to check it out.

It sounds good. I wanted a mid boost pedal and went back and forth on which one to get. Like I said, the Koko boost sounds great in the demos and is very simple to use. However, I went with the ParaEQ because I wanted to be able to dial in the exact frequencies that sounded good to me.

Carvin Legacy Drive VLD1 (although I'm waiting for it to go on sale or to snag a used one... new it is $499 plus shipping!).
