    If I just HAD to choose one branded chain, it would be vintage 9 or 808 series Ibanez...wait - I’ve already got 2 of those (UE 405 and UE305)

    A close second would be Visual Sound/TrueTone...right on its heels Boss.

    That said I’ve been jonesing to audition a Carl Martin Quattro

    Lean EHX because I like the Big Muff, but MXR would do as well. I don't use a ton of pedals, but they both have everything I need.

    I’d go with boss because they’re absolutely everywhere. If a pedal died I could get a replacement in no time and not change my tone. I like some other pedal brands better for certain types of pedals, but boss is reliable and easy to find.

    My board is already 2/3 Boss (TU-3 -> overdrive -> DD-500) so if any Boss dirt can work instead of my OCD then it's settled.

    Though I have changed my OCD for an Iron Horse as of late, and I wouldn't mind an all-Walrus board because these things are LIGHT. And they make their own power supply.

    Just curious. Why hasn't anyone mentioned TC Electronics? I'm not a pedal guy yet, but those look great. What am I missing?

    I had an all Danelectro board at one time. It was the old heavy tank-like pedals. I still have the FABTone for weird buzzy stuff and it was my first pedal ever, and the DanEcho for some huge crazy endless washes.

    I would say go all Danelectro, most because you can afford dinner afterwards.

    I love my Ditto Looper and almost everyone and their dog would recommend a Polytune in almost any of its flavours. So I'm not sure. Based on anecdotal evidence it seems that the rest of the stuff is okay if a little meh. Everyone seems to be able to name another pedal they would rather have for any type of effect. Overall I think they'd be a great option though.

    They would be pretty high on my list just because Tore is one of the most personable people in front of any company out there and they have minis, inexpensive and mid-range style pedals. TonePrint looks great for tweakers, but there's lots in the pedal without touching that aspect in most cases. I think one would do pretty well on that path.

    I couldn't use a board without a DMM, so I guess I would have to go with EHX. But then, EHX doesn't make a good compressor that I know of, so I'd have to lean toward MXR. But then there would be no DMM, so...

    Man...I don't know.

    I would be hard pressed to choose between Source Audio and Chase Bliss.

    They are expensive, but they are definitely worth it imho. but i get your point, when i first heard about them I couldn't even imagine buying one of them, then Tonal Recall happened and now I'm here hehe.

    Although not on the list, it would be Fulltone for me.

    Wampler. He does a great compressor, volume boost, klone, multiple great ODs, distortions, a fuzz pedals, multiple amp-in-a-box pedals, a great echo with tap tempo, a great tremolo with tap tempo, a lo-fi delay, a couple of reverbs...all of which sound great.
