Interesting. Thanks Guys. I will have to try that. But I will buy one at a time. They are pricey and my wife gave me a ration when she saw the credit card bill and the guitar center charges this month!

Dude, seriously for pedals I'd buy used without thinking twice.

Guitar or amps either new or used and immediately to a good tech.

Here are the Keeley moded TS808.

He has some cool sound samples

including Trey's sound. ( so he says )

I have been keeping my eyes on ebay for used ones but not ready to buy yet.

Yeah, they sound good (samples). Owning a modded TS9 & TS808, and hearing those samples (granted, over the computer & with different gear), I can comfortably say the Keeley mods sound as good as my Analogman mods, so from my point of view you should be happy with them if you go that route.

i just got a furman spb8c - i love it already - and have lined up the order of my pedals like this:
strat>dunlop wah>guyatone auto wah>eh octave multiplexer> mxr blue box > eh bass balls > mxr distortion iii > eh smallstone phaser > mxr carbon copy analog delay > peavey valveking 112

Any thoughts or advice on the order (i'm about to throw a holy grail in there too) thanks for your opinions!

Have you guys ever tried a BBE Boosta Grande? I have had all the TS you can think of. Nothing touches this pedal, it's so clean and colors sound with a very nice rich gain. I love it.

I have a brown mod TS if anyone is interested.

I got turned onto the Boosta Grande by Kaufman I think. I have one here at the shop that I play around with. I like it alot. For my stage rig I still just use the Stratoblaster with gain pot jacked up.
