    Not including overdrive what is your favorite pedal? Mine is delay I can get a reverb or a cascading effect, it thickens my solos I think is is my most valued pedal. What is yours?

    Excluding overdrive, as per your question, it's probably an echo (Analogman DD3 set to echo in my case).

    Peterson tuner. Strictly speaking it's not a pedal, because I have the VS-II rather than the StroboStomp, but it's effectively the same thing. It seems that every time I pick up my guitar someone has tuned it down for rumbly nu-metal, and getting it back up to pitch is like playing a little video game with trying to get the blocks to stop moving. I find this enjoyable, but then I'm a geek.

    Oh... are we excluding OD? OK. In that case I'd have to pick the DD3 as well. (Otherwise it would be the Timmy!:))

    oooh...wait. Going without my Boss CS2 would suck. I love that thang.

    Decisions, decisions...

    i just can't play without a delay. i played for about 3 years without one, and it was like playing with only one arm. i am an overdrive and delay guy.

    If I had to choose anything it'd be my Strobostomp. Helps me keep my guitars sounding crisp, musical, and playable. I'd rather play clean than have any effects on a poorly setup guitar.

    I would have to go with my Maxon AD-80. This is the first delay I have ever bonded with. I always had a delay box on the board, but only because I play covers and sometimes you have to have one. Now I use delay in places I never used to - it just sounds so good (dare I say it? Yes I do - its ORGANIC!). I am considering gettin a second so I can keep one set on a slapback, and use the other for longer delays, just to save wear and tear on my ancient, stiff back...

    Analogman DD3 is a winner and would be a bummer to be without.

    I haven't found the one indispensible pedal yet,
    but the Eternity is my #1 currently.

    The stompbox market is hot as hell right now
    with killer designs -

    Eternity
    BJF pedals
    Stephenson Stage Hog
    etc.

    Have to let the dust settle a bit before I could
    answer this question.

    A year ago, I would have said my Clyde wah....


    But since last May, it's been my JangleBox compressor. I use it almost all the time.

    I don't use my BD-2 as an OD, I use it as a boost. The drive is almost off.

    on the DG Stomp I use the stereo tremolo. if I lost that one effect the whole thang would be useless. it also has an unbelievable tape echo, phaser, leslie, ok wah, 3 very useable reverbs, the spring sounds better than the real thing on on my heads?!. all the amp modeling crap is crap. good it is bypassable.

    Hmm...I guess my Morning Dew EQ...even though I did without it for so long. It's really good though.
