    Say you have one clean amp. If you were able to put only one pedal in front of it, what would it be? For me it would be either my Fulldrive 2 MOSFET or my Hendrix Fuzzface.

    I'd probably go for my EQD Dirt Transmitter.

    I think I'd add my Plimsoul to the list. I'd take any of the three I've mentioned in a heartbeat.

    For me believe it or not, my generic-ass, stock Blues Driver.

    I have used this for many years as an "always ON" outboard preamp to a clean Blues Jr. for all kinds of gigs and I love it! Very dynamic OD with guitar volume knob.

    it's my "Wilson" OD (Tom Hanks/ 'Castaway' reference)

    DL4. I'd rather have delay & a looper than dirt if I'm gonna spend an eternity on an island by myself. If it has to be dirt, I'll go with the original Sansamp.

    I'm going to have someone design one big pedal that has OD/Fuzz/Reverb/Delay/Modulation/et al so that anytime I'm asked about "one" desert island pedal...I'll pick it ;)

    Boss DD-7. I'm going to want a delay pedal to mess with, and a Boss pedal will hold up well in the sand and heat.
