Okay, this is just to stir things up a little bit. But picture: You accidentally left ALL your effects at the club you played last night and they burned down today. You've got a reasonable (REASONABLE!) amount of money available and want to quickly put your pedalboard back together. So what goes on first? This isn't just 'What's your favorite distortion/overdrive?'. It's "What is the most necessary effect to make YOUR sound?" So sure, it includes 'What's your favorite distortion?' if you would start your emergency pedalboard recreation by buying a TS 808 and nothing else. But what about other goodies? Do you have to have a Delay? How about a Chorus? Wah? Now which ones? And are there any that you would buy because they are easy to find, but you would already be trying to find the hard-to-get version you prefer? There. That ought to get things moving.
