    I'm sure most of us have owned or own a Boss pedal. Just curious to see what Boss pedals people really love.
    For me its the Boss SD-1 Super overdrive. I've taken it off my pedalboard but its keeps finding its way back on. I prefer it over a Tubescreamer.

    My Boss OD-1 with the original 14 prong chip. I also love my DD2, and my DD3, which I had modded by Analogman

    [FONT=&quot]The TU-2 has been with me for a while now and I like it. I might get the Strobo, but I've heard the casings are questionable and it’s kinda ugly…I don’t know, it’s still kind of up in the air, but so far the TU-2 is staying. The other pedal I’m liking by boss is the DD-20 I just got because I’ve never had a good looper pedal that could do overdubbing as well so it’s a nice practice tool at home. And there are some other fun delays in the box to play with as well, but I’m using the Memory Lane for delays, so right now the DD-20 is mostly just a looper for me. Overall, two very useful pedals. :RoCkIn

    favorites?

    The EQ-20 pedal is an extremely useful dealie. The 9 memory settings are ingenious. Mine is always on.

    RC-20XL is one of the best practise tools ever invented.

    The Boss SD-1 is a surprisingly good pedal, especially for the price. I even found the MT-2 (meticulously dialed in) to be a useable high gain pedal.

    And please, folks, try to keep it to STOCK boss pedals.

    Props to Boss for continuing to innovate the effects market, from chorus to digital delay to pedal tuners to the myriad other things they keep putting out there.

    The second pedal I ever bought, an OC-2. It still has a home on my bass board.

    I have mourned the loss of my DM-2 ever since I foolishly sold it. Last week I came upon a DM-3 for cheap in a local pawnshop. It's every bit as mojo-licious as my DM-2 was. Plus it's got a direct out:eek:. I will never, ever sell it....for at least months.

    The ONE Boss pedal that I would truly never sell is my old SD-1. There are many pedals that are supposed to be so much better (and I own some of them) but something good just happens when it's on my board. I'd even be afraid to have it modded.

    Loop Station XL, it has a few drawbacks, but it's functions are legion. Yes, it is an indespensable practice tool.

    Next would be my modded SD-1, mine sounds a lot like a Fulldrive with a handful of component changes. I real good overdrive!

    Modded DD-3, a very nice sounding small delay, great for those stripped down gigs.

    Modded CH-1, now it sounds like a leslie!

    Modded GE-7 EQ, very versitile and great sounding EQ. Great for adding thump to my tele, or when I only have my McCarty to add treble to a split coil... gets me real close to a *real* single coil sound. Pretty neat.

    (All mods DIY with the help of Indyguitarist.com mods)

    My tried and true Turbo Overdrive. That's the only boss pedal I own but I think the old chorus ensemble (the big grey box one) kicks any chrous pedal right in the battery compartment( if you get my meaning)
