Show Me Your Pedalboard: Chris

Today's Show Me Your Pedalboard entry belongs to Chris from Salt Lake City, Utah! Chris has a very modest board which he mainly uses for his bluesy/stoner rock band. Chris is hardcore repping DOD, as well as rocking some other surprises too, so let's dive in:

Chris' board starts off into the ubiquitous, but utilitarian BOSS tuner straight into a vintage, 1st generation DOD Milk Box. The DOD Milk Box is a compressor that adds a healthy amount of creamy compression/expansion to your taste (hence the name). Love seeing old school DOD stomp boxes, definitely stands out as a very unique compressor, really cool, Chris.  From the Milk Box things move along into a BOSS Line Selector where Chris splits his signal into two loops.

Chris' first loop has got the DOD Meatbox reissue, and his second loop features the smallsound/bigsound Team Awesome Fuzz Machine. The Team Awesome Fuzz Machine is such a great fuzz for saturation, whether you need lots of dirt, a clean boost or some overdrive the Team Awesome Fuzz Machine has got you covered. After the loops is some more DOD love with the DOD Boneshaker. Chris says that he uses the Boneshaker as a parametric EQ or for some extra dirt if needed, very cool.  

After the Boneshaker is the Peavey BAC-2 Bi-Amp chorus, which is a neat little bass chorus. Unfortunately the Peavey BAC-2 has long since been discontinued, they're available for cheap online but don't be surprised if this pedal blows up in popularity like the DOD Meatbox did so get them while you can! Chris uses the Peavey's dual outputs to go into to separate amps.

Lots of cool stuff on here Chris, no matter how expensive, cheap, rare, or common a pedal might be if it speaks to you, then there's no changing that. It's all about your sound and what works best for you! I would just rearrange things to be more in line with the actual order of your signal. In case something goes down, it'll be much easier to pull a pedal out or pinpoint the problem. You got some room for some additional pedals too! An envelope filter or phaser could work well with your sound.
