When I started out on electric, I got a Crate amp-the old pine box original one and didn't even know how to use the gain knob-I played it totally clean for years. When I figured it out, it still sounded like crap. I remember seeing TS-808's at the store where I bought it-if they'd been smart they'd have shown me what one sounded like and I would have probably bought it (I was taking lessons there). I wish they'd sold me one. It would have helped me tremendously getting a better tone and hopefully I'd have hung on to it and had a highly collectible one owner pedal. What pedals do you remember sitting in the case that you wish you'd bought?
