i've seen plenty of pedalboards with lots of fancy-shmancy pedals... but with that ONE 'regular', joe-shmoe pedal.

so what's your non-boutique pedal--or Vintage pedal--that you hold in such high regard?

include "vintage" in there too, because some joe-schmoes are old enough now where they are considered just as valuable as boutiques. the TS-808 or 70s Big Muffs for instance.

So my "Guitar Center" pedal is this one:



Heck yeah I'd love to replace it with an AMT Japanese Girl Wah, but those are still too unobtanium for me to bother hunting down.

Sadly I do not own any non-boutique pedals, but then again I don't own many pedals: 1 from Analogman, DMB, and Basic Audio plus my 9 from SUF.

Danelctro BLT - A great slapback echo
Pearl CH-02 Chorus for Leslie sounds
Pearl OC 7 Octave Pedal - does octave up without the fuzz - just add distortion or overdrive to taste

I have had my Rat 2 since 1989 and its currently on my board after a long hiatus. 'Course its been modified (by me) so maybe that qualifies as boutique.

I also still have my very first pedal - a 1986 dunlop wah - but its in disrepair.

I pretty much have tried all the Pearls - including this one. This is an excellent OD pedal.
Thanks,
Dual JRC 4558 op-amps. I use it at a low overdrive setting and with a touch of outlevel boost. I cut the midrange hump just a notch with the parametric EQ. Use it both with single coils and humbuckers.

The only two that come close to "boutique" are MJM London Fuzz and ZVex Super Hard On.
