    Bored here at work. I'm sure this has been discussed before, but here we go again....

    Bogner Shiva 6L6 combo and ex. cab here..
    LOVE this amp, though I find myself purchasing a lot of OD pedals as well:

    ZIM
    Zendrive
    HellBilly
    Fuzz Drive 2

    Should I feel bad for the Shiva?
    What OD pedals are we all using in conjunction with our amps?

    Barber Echelon owner here. Playing the Barber pedals through an amp designed and voiced by David Barber is out of this world. The pedals sound great through most amps but there is just something magical about putting them through the Echelon.

    Early SRV Strat > Clyde Wah > Cpt. Coconut 2 > Time Machine Boost > FD2 > Disto Pro > SupaTrem > Clone Chorus > DL-4 > '71 50w Marshall (1986) > Reissue Marshall 4x12

    I'm finally done with pedals, with the exception of possibly replacing the Disto Pro with something else for high gain. Time to move on to more guitars, amps, and cabs!!!...:dude

    The Orange sunshine is a fuzz made by Vintage Tech.I got it in a trade from a forumite ,theelectric.
    It has a wierd 8.4volt battery ,it looks like a C battery with snap clips either end.It also has a 9volt clip if you choose to use it.

    I thought the builder choose that battery for tone reasons,but I heard no differance with a 9v.

    It appears to be a standard FF curcuit of sorts.It's kinda spitty ,notes cut off,but it sings forever with a comp after it.
    It has no knobs ,just a foot switch.its pretty cool,don't now if I'm gonna keep it yet,I have a lot of fuzz.Heres a link to the pics
    http://www.effxd.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=45&sort=1&size=medium&cat=505


    The jacko is CRAZY.I have one of the early protos .Mine has a HUDGE knob on it so you can turn it with your foot.I might have Sean rehouse it in a wah.No I havn't done any clips for Sean.When he wants to scare off all these people beating his door down,I'm sure he'll call;)

    The BD2 FF is deffinetly an all out fuzz.It's my #2 all time favorite fuzz,the Bad Mother F'er being #1 & Keeleys best pedal ever IMHO.It also does sweet OD tones as well.It has all the regular bd2 modes plus a switch that adds 2 germ trannies.Killer pedal,Ilove it.

    All I need is my Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb RI /w bright cap removed and speaker replaced with an old 25watt reconed Jensen alnico.

    I don't even use my other amps anymore! But, they are: Fender '59 Bassman RI, Fender "Custom" Vibrolux Reverb and Fender Pro Jr.

    Guitars are 2003 Fender Am. Deluxe Strat w/ Kinman Trad MkII's and G&L ASAT.

    Pedals, too numerous to mention :D
