  • Up to four pedals and a 20w tweed amp

    Playing many styles of music mainly with a Telecaster and the occasional Gibson, what pedals would you choose playing with a Tungsten Crema Wheat? I am in the process of making a pedaltrain mini board with a Pedal Power ISO 5. I want to limit myself to up to four pedals. I usually use an overdrive and delay, but want to see what others would use.

    Not having played a Crema Wheat, I don't feel qualified to pick... but if I had to knock it down to 4 pedals that could fit on a PTmini for my ASAT/Maz8 Setup

      And you only need a PT-Mini with this setup.

        What I would personally use? On a PT-mini? With a 6v6, brown Fender-like amp?

          if I had to run four of my current pedals into a tweed amp (one day I want a tweed-style amp), I would run:

          microvibe-> rat -> DMM -> demeter reverbulator

          my only amp now is a BF fender, so I use a totally different board with 9 pedals and some more pedals off to the side when I'm at home. Clean amps lend themselves better to tons of effects, imo, since you can really hear them (the effects). That said, it would be equally amusing to use four pedals into a tweed amp.

              Get an OD/Boost, Tonebender, Delay, and an EQ.

                I think something like this:

                Walrus Mayflower (or Timmy)>Fuzz Face>Montavillian/Tape Echo type>Flint >amp

                  Totally biased opinion below:

                  Turbo Tuner -> Naga Viper -> Pareidolia -> AR20DL

                  Turbo Tuner because well, it's the best tuner ever
                  Naga Viper because it's got a pretty useful EQ that blends well with a tweed amp in my experience
                  Pareidolia because it's a unique modulation pedal that can cover decent amounts of ground and blends well with tweed circuits
                  AR20DL because it's bright enough to cut with a tweed and still has nice analog warmth to it

                  That amp. I want one bad. I'm a vintage snob and proud of it, but gotdamn that thing sounds INCREDIBLE.

                    I don't have a Crema Wheat, but I do have a handwired ptp 5e3 clone. Aside from the fact it is probably way too loud of an amp to use at home, I feel like the 4 pedals above, or something similar, are the bare bones setup I'd want with this amp. No one above mentioned reverb, but I feel that its kind of essential (for my sound anyway). Of course, if you have the luxury of being able to really crank that amp, you won't really need the first two dirts in my proposed chain.

                      The Flint (Strymon) is BOTH a reverb and tremolo pedal in one. Making a small board more diverse by offering both of these effects in one box.

                        A boost
                        A fuzz
                        A delay
                        A trem

                        Personally (i.e out of what I own) that'd be
                        A super chili picoso
                        A germ fuzz face
                        A trex replica
                        A frantone vibutron
                        So I guess those!

                        (I'd really miss a wah though)
                        ...

                              My bad IRG! I am not as familiar with the Strymon stuff.

                              I hear you on using a versatile pedal for multiple sounds. Its funny how no one has mentioned the M9 yet, when that usually gets thrown into the "small board" discussions pretty early on. Maybe it would be too much of a travesty in front of an amp like that... :idk:
