    Since I am bored at work and nobody has done this, why not put in your bids for the Top 5 pedals of 2005. Thinking these DON'T have to be pedals you kept, but still thought were great and were the "hits" of the year. I'll start, in no particular order...

    Timmy, Zendrive, Bad Monkey, Moon Phaser, OCD :NUTS

    Keeley modded Boss DS-1 and Voodoo Labs Sparkle Drive. Fulltone FD w/MOSFET. These three were new to me this year.

    The H&K Tube Rotosphere has been at the top of the list for 5 years now!

    Uhh... so we're doing a 'Top 12' now georgeandleo? :Spank
    ;)

    My Top 5 this year were:

    1) BJF Honey Bee
    2) Automagic Silver Machine Wah
    3) Kaden Fluttertone (slightly modded)
    4) Xotic BB Preamp (even though I sold it)
    5) Lovepedal Eternity (even though I sold it)

    I don't keep pedals I don't use, so even though some pedals are really good, I sell them if they don't have a function or space on my board.
