Ampless love - what's your combo in 2022?
What is your ampless set up?
I've had the DSM Humboldt Simplifier and RevivalDrive Compact for the best part of a year and still loving it (as a hobbyist player).
The Simplifier whilst great, it has a DI dryness that the RevivalDrive compact elevates to a more 3D tone. Even with headphones (using the Simplifier sweep switch) the tones really are fun.
Optionally, I add in a cheap compressor in the FX loop to create a slight amp sag effect (Marshal Ed-1 the Compressor).
What I like about this set up is that I can add an analogue delay between the RevivalDrive and Simplifier to darken the sound with a Boss DM2.
Pre amp pedals: Keeley 2 knob Ross style -> klon partspipe
Core sound is: RevivalDrive -> Boss DM2 -> Simplifier
FX Loop: Ed-1 compressor -> modulation pedals
Unfortunately no pictures as I have a pedal pile rather than a board as I'm still experimenting with pedal order.
So what is your experience with ampless more recently?
Apologies if this should be in the FX discussion thread! It started out as a love of this pedal combination to date.
