Pedals -  If I'm not running straight into the amp, I have 2 setups, a big one, and a small one, and the odd time with an auxilliary board for more eclectic (for me) stuff.  I'll swap stuff in and out a bit depending on the gig. 

I've been getting a lot of help from my cousin, Mike Pisarchuk, in Edmonton, who has an online music business buying and selling gear, mostly pedals, and he's very knowledgeable and an excellent guy to get on your side for finding whatever you're looking for.  mikepisarchuk@gmail.com.  Check him out! 

The 'big' setup is roughly as follows - Arc Effects Klone v. 2 dist. (and buffer) to - Xotic SP Compressor to - Xotic AH1 Soul Driven - to -  Source Audio Orbital Modulator - to - Rockman active Volume pedal to - Dr. Scientist BitQuest to - Source Audio Nemesis Delay - to - RJM ToneSaver buffer/ isolated splitter. power - VoodooLab Ped. Power 2.   Sometimes a Vox Wah out front. 

Other distortions that I'll sometimes swap in are the Love Pedal Amp 11, Suhr Riot, the Maxon 808 re-issue (pretty close to an '81 original I had), Screddy Screwdriver, Tone City Bad Horse, Maxon SD9.  Strymon El Capistan delay sometimes. 

The second smaller board - my 'jazz' setup - is basically a Timmy,

MXR Carbon Copy Delay, and a Malekko Spring Chicken Reverb. (I might also include the JHS Prestige Buffer at the end.   Maybe swap in an Xotic EP Booster).

Not that Jim Hall needed any of this stuff (but he used a Whammy pedal, chorus, and 2 amps sometimes!).
