    What pedal just blew you away when you first played it. That just stood above the crowd. And survived the live band volume test to still sound great.

    Most of them! :eek: Seriously the ones that did better were the ones that didn't make Me say Wow at first. Right now I'm totally sold on The SRB808. I have the 2 channel Stuart Swanlund version and it's really working for Me.

    LDO. FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC.

    if you look in a thesaurus under Tone .. you'll also see the Landgraff Dynamic Overdrive. Giggidy Giggidy.

    I also dearly love my SweetSound Ultra II. Not only for sentimental value because of who its from but the tone of the unit is just Bliss

    Landgraff MO'D...it's the pedal
    Analogman delay is hangin tough
    Lehle 1@3 is just the best and most practical switcher I've ever had
    Hartman 8VA...doesn't get used a lot but brings a smile to my face every time I do...may build a seperate pb around this one and a picture wah...

    don't own but blew me away...
    Okko Fx. CoCo Comp.
    Telenordia Treble boost

    the pedals below blew me away and yet I sold them because I mistakenly believed that I could get something cheaper to do the same job only to realize that I couldn't...so now they are back or comin home...

    Maxon CP101 .... it works both as a good compressor & a wonderful clean booster
    with a great deal of DB on tap .. both for my electric & acoustic Nylon String ...

    It improves the sound of any pedal you might use with it... especially OD pedals ...

    If I only could take one pedal to a gig... it would be this one...
    (So far it's beaten out every other compressor I've tried so far.. & there aren't many left to try ...)

    After I got my Lil Dawg amp, I couldn't find an OD that sounded right. I finally tried an OCD and Wow...perfect.

    I still find the Tim the most amazing pedal. Just because it makes my amp sound like it is cranked, does nothing else.

    However all the other pedals sound like they are now going into a cranked amp at a "normal" volume when they are fed into the Tim.

    It gives me ballsy tone at a reasonable volume without a master volume amp, loops and all that garbage, and I can shut it all off and have the best cleans in the business.

    I love the thing.
