    Another year over and more pedals bought.
    So what are your top purchases this year?

    Mine would be:

    Danelectro TOD - the BEST $45 I spent on a brand new pedal ever!

    MJM Phantom Overdrive- My main overdrive for almost 9 years (Blues Devil) only made better and looked so much cooler!

    And my favorite "used" purchase would be

    Way Huge Swollen Pickle- Awesome Big Muff-and more, fuzz!

    Dunlop JHF1 - very cool pedal!

    I'm also pretty pleased with my Line 6 M9 and I like the Dano TOD as well. Although, the switch on the TOD bothers me enough that I'm going to give Paul Cochrane a call before too long!

    Nova Modulator

    I didn't think I was that into modulation until I bought this, it's totally changed my mind! Got a permanent spot on my board now.

    I broke down and got a Klon, as well probably 6 or 8 months ago I picked up a Cusack More Louder. THAT is the best buffer I have ever used.
    It is fantastic!!!
    Those would be my best pedal purchases over the past year.
    Both have changed everything for me.

    Everything you see in the pic has been purchased in 2009, plus the Tone Bender. It's been a great gear year!

    Barber Direct Drive- great for giving a Fender combo amp a Marshall flavor OD without going over the top... love it!

    Its tough to pick one, but if I had to it would be the Barber Dirty Bomb. Really enjoyed that pedal. The Diamond Bass Comp is coming in a close second, just got it this month. I will be using it on guitar soon, but for bass, I love what it does.

    Lovepedal Eternity E6.

    With the gain at about noon, Les Paul neck pickup and Peavey Classic 30 clean channel, I've found a tone that works very well for me.

    CAE MC-404 wah and Xotic EP Booster - each really great and great together.

    I also purchased a Tone Freak Severe that I like a lot but that has not yet claimed a "permanent" spot (if such a concept is actually possible...) on my board.
