Hi friends

It is just that simple... post a pic of your current pedalboard and mention which pedals are “always on” if any :)

Starting with myself...

Noise gate pedals and reverb (from amp) are always on

Don't rely on the pedal board much anymore but when I did I usually kept one of several delay pedals on all the time as well as a Zvex SHO boost.

Got the world at my feet. Nothing is "always on" aside from the AX8 in general. :dunno:

Back in the gigging days, the Maestro into my 2204 was my default rhythm tone. But it wasn't "always on" either as the 2204 was set with an AC/DC type base tone.

The AX8 has all of the reverb and delay and time based and modulation fx you could ever want.

I tend to always have a comp on. I have used many different ones. Sometimes I have a dirt or od always on to add grit. Right now I have zvex distrotron always on to add some low end to my jazzmaster. It also helps with other pedals. Also I love using the Pigtronix grit. I have run an ep boost as a always on pedal at the end of my chain to add warmth.

The pedal that comes closest to be always on is my T-Rex Mudhoney. I use it to add dirt when playing at lower volumes.
I also use it to get a fuzzy treblebooster type of sound with a pushed JTM 45.

The CM Plexi Tone Lo Gain is also great on top of a crunchy JTM for some more modern Plexi gain (modern is early 70s in my perception ).
I just got a larger board, which needs to be populated, but this is my basic one.

Does a 6G15 count? It's never really out of the chain, even when the reverb is disengaged.

For me it would be a old digitech pds 1002 delay. I dont keep the delay on but I use the output button as a overdrive in front of my amp. Also recently been keeping a tiny bit of reverb on to sweeten.

For me it's the Jackson Audio Prism. It just takes my loud high headroom amp and gives it that feel of a cranked amp but without any gain and no tone shift. It's a "feel" thing and it definitely reminds you of a cranked combo. Touch sensitive too. All dirt is coming from pedals after the Prism so it gives that "feel" to all of my dirt pedals. It's definitely a must have.

Current board. I'm using the Barbershop to kick the living daylight out of the Deluxe in the Amplifire and it's always on.

Pedals on my board which I run thru the fx loop and are always on are Boss DD3, the Digitec Hardwire Stereo Reverb and the BBE Sonic Stomp. I recently removed the Danelectro FishnChips EQ from that chain.
The rest of the pedals are used in agreement with the song and the guitar.
