I can dig what you guys are saying. The only stomp box I still have is a 70's Big Muff that I pull out of storage a few times a year. I also have my Rockman rack which I use mainly for the chorus/delay and echo. Other than that I plug straight into the Marshall combo or through my Rockman XP212, which has become my favorite amp.

Right on Huff... Dunlop has out the MXR Smart Gate, which was originally designed by SR&D and still commands a huge premium on the used scene.. they claim to have tweaked it and made it even better. It is now a stomp box vs the half rack original version. I think I will pick one up and give it a try.

Effects are like spice on food. Sure you can live on plain old roasted chicken, but add some jerk seasoning, and its a whole new ballgame!! You`ve got to have some effects to broaden up your tone pallet. I think the guys that rely only on chord and amp, are the same guys that don`t want to take the time to learn how to manage fx to their potential. It takes work, and time to figure out which ones you need, and when to use them tastefully.

I agree Coco in terms of chorus, delay, etc etc. I was more thinking of the overdrive pedals that the market is so saturated with. I have built in effects on the Rockman gear and reverb on the marshalls. So I seldom purchase effects pedals. I also have a full effects rack when I run through that. But the overdrive pedals.. I have ran the course and ended up keeping the EH Big Muff.
