Guitar effects

We've got a jam session running with a full band of comedians. A lot of ex-musicians are on stage telling jokes. We're renting time at the same rehearsal studio I went to with three different bands. It's great to play loud again.

So I've been trying to fine tune my guitar sound. The last time I bought any effects was four years ago. My analog delay pedal has a great 80's "Edge" sound to it but it does little else. The vibrato and chorus are almost useless. And it takes up way too much room.So I'm getting a much smaller BOSS digital delay.

I love modulation effects so I just bought a BOSS Super Chorus. I use tremolo a lot now so I should get another pedal. And I'm keeping the Phaser. That's three pedals where I had one.

And Line 6 makes one pedal that does everything. But I don't know anyone that has one. There are a MILLION Youtube videos with reviews and demos. But the compressed sound isn't really helping.

Videos like this are not helping either. But they are what I see when I close my eyes.
