Effects Pedals

Boss RV-6 Reverb

An advanced reverb. pedal with several 
features which should
make it a better match for the piano 
than the Mooer EchoVerb was.
It is a stereo pedal, which avoids the need for a 
sub-mixer in my
performance audio chain. It has a number of additional settings: one that
adds modulation; one that adds delay; one that adds a 'shimmer' effect
and one that responds dynamically. First tests seem to indicate that all of
these could prove very useful. Obviously, the traditional reverbs. perform
impeccably as you would expect from a Boss pedal.

Boss DS-1 Distortion (40th Anniversary edition)

This is the 40th anniversary edition of the
original (orange) DS-1 pedal.

It is (apparently) the Boss pedal that has,
over the years, outsold every other.
This version is a limited edition, available
only during 2017, finished in black with
gold trimmings.

Mooer Micro Drummer
A drum machine in a compact size matching the micro series.
Eleven drum styles with eleven patterns each, although one of the
settings is a basic metronome. Features a tap tempo option.
This can be fitted in a pedal chain but it works without the need for
jack in the input socket (to switch it 'on') so can be directly injected
into a mixer channel or return for independent operation.
The sounds are good with built-in reverb. but gated reverb. sounds
would need to be produced by an external reverb/noise gate combination.
Whilst not as flexible as a dedicated drum machine, it makes up for this
with varied, convincing sounds with the minimum of fuss in setting up.

Mooer Micro Looper

A compact loop pedal with up
to 30 minutes of record time
and unlimited overdubs with
last loop undo/redo options.
Single channel operation.

Korg PB-01 Chromatic Tuner

Not really an effects pedal but included here has it
tends to be placed at the front end of any effects
chain. An accurate and reliable tuner that is easy to
use. Although many multi-effects have tuners too,
I have found them a little inaccurate and/or fiddly
to use. In my opinion, it is always worth having a
dedicated tuner and these are available for a very
reasonable price.
