    Hi, @amstratnut -Buddy

    An MXR Phase 90 might be nice.

    I love my wah. It's just an old Cry Baby. Probably my second most important pedal after my Rat (not including my tuner).

    That covers a lot of ground. I'd add maybe a Fuzz Face, but it's not essential. Do you have a compressor?

    Unless there is a particular sound or effect you need but your board cannot provide then there is nothing missing.

    The small blue pedal is my new Wampler ego mini. I haven't had it long but it sounds great so far.

    I have a digitech freqout that I love. It's not Mandatory by any means, but it's cool to get usable feedback at any volume / time.

    Also, wah. I love it. I use a plutonium chiwahwah. Very cool and standard stompbox size.

    Depends on your music tastes - I find an Electric Mistress Flanger / chorus and a Lester Rotary are fantastic for 60’s tones They’re both not so crazy that you can dial them down to using them more often as they don’t dominate the signal.

    you’ve got a boost so no need for a compressor.

    I have a Wampler plexidrive that I use a lot for my main OD or a Price of Tone - and a Triangle Muff. You might consider some of those

    As others have said, where's the wah pedal?! How can you play Hendrix or Eric Clapton in his Cream phase without a wah? other than that, the board looks good to go!

    You’re the only other person I know (besides me) who has a Talkbox Synth! I love that pedal. So nice to do talkbox without the tube!

    If cost is a factor, then no I won't suggest anything but if there's a little left in the tank I'd suggest a Chase Tone "Secret Preamp" as an always on pedal at the end of your chain.

    Like your E.P. Booster the Secret Preamp is based on the Echo Plex Preamp but when placed behind all the other pedals it just seems to make everything sound a bit better. It's one of those pedals you think isn't doing much until you turn it off.

    This was my board a few years ago.

    Some has gone, others there to take the spot.

    The red UST Drive is one I would suggest if it were attainable.

    I got a nice one a couple of years ago for about 50 bucks. I had the EVH phase 90mbut didn’t like it as well as the orange one.
