    It is time to step outside the box of building simple recreations of other circuits. This thread will demonstrate ideas on how to combine circuits to create your own “Ultimate Combo”.

    Design and “Create Your Own Frankenstein”

    This will be an ongoing, evolving thread and I will add more ideas as time permits.

    Here is the Playsforfun Combo Build Guide and can also be found on our Guides Page.

    Additionally here are some Basic Wiring Concepts also available on the Guides Page.


    Idea #1: Cross an Emexar with a ColorTone Overdriver. The Ultimate in Boost and Gain.

    Idea #2: Anyone can make honey… Here is our Killer Bee w/ Rototone add-on

    Idea #3: Okay so our Muff’n is already the Ultimate Muff but don’t’ stop there! Here is what happens when you add a Tone TwEQ and Stage 3 Boost for the “Ultimate Muff’n Combo”.

    Idea #4 Plexi Plus Tone TwEQ Combo for a full blown Marshall style Preamp + one of our Easy Order Switching boards that offers Pre or Post EQ options on a foot-switch.

    Idea #5 “Ultimate Multi Drive” Super Combo featuring Super Sonic S2, BMPOA, KOTB, Buff N Blend, Tone TwEQ, 3PDT & DPDT wiring boards & Easy Order Switching board in a 1590BB. That’s a lot of tone in one box!

    Idea #6: The Ultimate Compressor. Using a MoRC, Tone TwEQ and Stage 3 Boost combination get everything you need Pre-Dirt in a single pedal including a tonally powerful compressor

    Idea #7: Courtesy of Stevie K. we first have the MoRC compressor with a foot switchable loop between the MoRC and the D’Lay/Stage 3 being last. You can insert ODs or other modulation pedals in between the Morc and D’Lay/Stage 3 for a compact rig.


    Idea #8: Courtesy of Stevie K we have a Supersonic S-2 and G-2 Animal combo which is based on a very high profile and costly combo. Two amazing types of drive in a single enclosure.


    Idea #9: Black Dog Overdrive, Stage 3 Boost, The Vibe & D’Lay all in a 1590DD and includes an effects loop so you may insert other pedals easily. Also noteworthy are the many mods used.

    Idea #10: The Cosmic Incineration courtesy of Playsforfun features our Hot Chilicon (Sriracha Fuzz), Aeon Drive, Ancestral Apparition (reverb), Orange Julius (compressor), Tone TwEQ (3 Band Active EQ), After Blaster Add-on Gain Stage), Easy Order Switching board, Buff N Blend (x2), Solo Boost, Effects Loop, Wah Loop all in a 1590DD with 3D stacking control modules.


    Idea #11: Courtesy of Petevig is a cool retro table top combo which includes our Zenith Drive, Cap’t Munch, Dr. Rock and Stage 357 (aka XX Double Shot)
