Swedish reader Sven-Erik Söderberg switches tones with a Joyo PXL-PRO pedal switcher. “In the overdrive section I have an Xotic SP Compressor, a Barber Small Fry Burn Unit, an MI Audio Blues Pro, and a Mooer Ultra Drive,” he explains. “In the modulation section I have a Mooer Ensemble King chorus, a Joyo Tremolo and Analog Delay, and TC Electronic Flashback delay.” Between the two sections is an Xotic EP Booster, and there’s an EBS DynaVerb right before the amp. Sven-Erik built his own rechargeable power supply, which, he says, can run the board for more than six hours, and is dead silent. “I’ve taped all knobs to make sure that I have my settings ready when I play,” adds Sven-Erik. “I only need 10 minutes to soundcheck. Sound engineers love me.”
