Sure many people out there are into digital modelers that contain a myriad of effects and tones and they work great for a lot of applications. I however, tend to favor this new innovative product produced by Effector 13: The Console Project.
This console provides two slots for specially designed cartridges to slide into and start making noise. Think of it as a modular effects pedal, you can swap out cartridges and combine them to make a host of new tones. Right now the focus is on fuzz, distortion and overdrive cartridges but I emailed Devi and she said:
The console is priced at a very reasonable $135 with each cartridge costing somewhere around $50. Just imagine the different effect combinations you could have. Notable builders like Dwarfcraft, Fuzzhugger and smallsound/bigsound along with many others are developing cartridges for this as well. This may turn out to be a very economical way to build a collection of effects and save a lot of space on your board as well.
