    Pete Cornish P19, a BBE sonic stomp type pedal, Iím not a fan of the actual BBE, not one similar.wah, chorus. I donít have a tap tempo delay, so I have 2 delays 1 for long delays and one for short. Volume pedal is fantastic. Maybe an octave. On my board, in addition to some of the listed, I had an overdrive, a Klone and a green Russian fuzz.

    I'm not a big fuzz guy either but these two have worked for fuzz tones that aren't over the top.

    I love my Stomp Under Foot Civil War Fuzz. It's a really moderate fuzz that doesn't get so crazy on the high or low end. I also have a zen drive clone that does some cool drive stuff that almost reaches fuzz territory.

    You didn't list a tuner so I won't assume you have one. I've heard the Pitch Black is good, but I'm very happy with a TC Electronic Polytune.

    If you are considering fuzz, but don't want to be limited by any fuzz pedal's only suit, check out the Black Arts Toneworks Pharaoh Fuzz. It is very versatile and has a lower noise floor than most fuzz pedals.
    I am so close to retirement that I could play in a band full time. All I have to do is figure out what to use instead of money, improve my playing, learn some songs, and find some other musicians more talented than me who will do exactly as they're told. .

    If you're considering some potential '80's tones you're missing then definitely consider adding some 'verb and a chorus.
    I think the Catalina chorus is an underrated gem, and I've seen some on the used market lately for pretty reasonable prices
    if higher price-point is a concern.
    As for other kinds of funky fx, like the EHX Octave Multiplex and the Octavix are fun to have for layering some cool octaves
    and fuzzy overtones into lead playing and stuff, I use those a lot lately.

    For 80s tones, absolutely the Catalina Chorus. It is a remarkably liquid chorus pedal, and I love the dynamic expression feature.

    Or, you could do what I just did and buy this for the same price:

    Only four buttons and a switch and it's still more versatile than most other chorus I've tried. It also doesn't have any of those annoying undulations of a normal chorus.
    Once I had myself a million, now I've only got a dime.
    Difference don't seem quite as bad today.
    With a nickel or a million I was searchin' all the time
    For something that I never lost or left behind.

    Wah, a Klone of some sort, and another delay.

    I like the Dimensions, but it really isn't quite the same as something like a Catalina. The Catalina can vary the amount of chorus by how hard you pick, which is pretty unique. The Dimension really sounds best in stereo, which not many players do these days.

    I'm gonna suggest - get this - a SECOND delay!

    Think about a Boss RV-3....Verb and/or Delay.

    Ok, think Ive at least settled on a reverb pedal, leaning toward either the EHX Ocean 11, TC Electronics Hall of Fame 2 or Boss RV-6, thoughts, comparisons, etc?

    The EHX Ocean 11 is probably the best and most versatile pedal on your list. It can do everything the other two can plus a few other interesting effects. Some are one trick ponies, but others are very useful effects.

    Not a bad word about the Catalina (I've never even seen one), but I can second this recommendation. My chorus hunt ended with the DC-2W (if I could only get that sound in a multi-fx processor!).

    How it differs from, say Boss CH pedals or Small Clone tone wise?

    It seems the technical aspects, and stereo option, get always the spotlight. How it actually sounds like in different modes in mono?

    I find that it is subtler and more musical than a chorus. It has the richness of a good chorus, but loses the warble, which is what I think tends to be a bit too prominent. It doesn't do extreme chorus, so you're not going to get Come as You Are from it. I would rather say that it is the right pedal for somebody who is not really looking for a chorus effect, per se, but to implement some of the widening effect of chous into your tone.

    As for the different modes, I would say that 1-3 is really just different grades of chorus, whereas 4 almost gets into flanger territory. This might sound limiting, but the box does an extremely good job at being musical with different tones. I generally want far more chorus in my clean tones than my distorted tones, and on 2, this thing somehow always manages to find the sweet spot. If I wanted a prominent chorus, I could get that by combining 2 and 3 (or replace either with 4). 1 is going to be very subtle, but I could definitely see it working for somebody less invested in 80s aesthetics than myself.
