Effects are a Boss TU-2 tuner, Prescription Electronics’ Yardbox and Experience pedals, Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man, and some variety of a Tube Screamer. At the moment my favorites are the Maxon OD 808 and Voodoo Lab’s Sparkle Drive. There are a few other things I use quite often, like a Voodoo Labs Analog Chorus and Pedal Power, Prescription Electronics Germ, and either a Carl Martin compressor/limiter or Boss CS-3 compressor/sustainer.more
Today I use a simple pedalboard that Dave Wilkerson from Techstar built for me. It is loaded with an Ernie Ball volume pedal, a Cry Baby 5350 wah, Boss DD-3 Digital Delay, MXR DynaComp, Boss GE-7 Equalizer, Boss Chromatic Tuner, Voodoo Lab Tremolo and **Sparkle Drive**, and last but not least, the good, old T.C. Electronic Stereo Chorus.more
"I'm still putting the 4-Speed through its paces. I may swap it out with a Sparkle Drive and put this on my flight board. Tim, who builds them, tells me it's really built for fly dates, as it has four modes, each sort of designed for a different type of amp. Sounds like a good plan." - Osenga about Sparkle Drive pedal.more
In [this November 2017 interview with Guitars Exchange](http://guitarsexchange.com/en/unplugged/431/david-potts/), Pottsy explains his pedal setup. "I just use a very simple set of seven pedals in a chain." He says, "There is a tuner, a Sparkle Drive (Voodoo Lab), and then I’ve got this round (laughs) …this round thing… Exporia it’s called; a RAT ProCo, a chorus (Marshall Supervibe) and two delays (Boss DD-5 and a Shadow Echo by Dr. J.) – one for really going a bit daft and sound-effectsy, which is made by a company called Joyo based in Manchester, and then a short delay for the slapback stuff, because a lot of the Joy Division stuff had been put through a simulator."more
I borrowed one from a friend, and he was about ready to break into my place to get it back. I know why; its as if the pedal splits your output, making channel A overdriven and channel B clean and compressed. Its like you're jamming with yourself; one clean and one distorted. And you can play with the blend, as well, making the attack more distorted than the decay, or vice-versa. Amazing pedal.
