Pedals have come a long way I think. I recently picked up a ZVex Distortron which is, despite the name, not really a distortion pedals as much as an overdrive and it more or less covers jtm45 marshall tones. It sounds very very nice and it cleans up nicely with the guitar volume so you can get wide ranging levels of overdrive right from the guitar all at the same apparent volume. And unlike most od/distortion pedals there isn't that harsh artificact in the background as the note decays.
I'm also getting into looping. I have a Boss RC2 looper and I used to have, but stupidly sold because I needed the $, a zvex lo fi loop junky. They are so fun but I want to get some sort of looper that you can switch in and out different loops live so it's easy to go from a verse to a chorus back to a verse then to a bridge. Would be fun for live coffee house gig kinds of things.
Also really coming around to fender blackface tones…and the reverb and trem that goes along with them. On a bit of a Smiths/Johnny Marr kick right now so that's a part of it. Might pick up a princeton reverb at some point although perhaps I should go with a Deluxe reverb so it's at least somewhat giggable. If I could find a silverface of either of these I'd be pretty stoked. Might even go with a reissue. Don't have money for original blackface tho.
