    Haven't owned a Tapex 2 or the Vintage Ensemble but played them and they were cool. Need another cool dual pedal soon too :)

    I've had a few Mr Black and Friday Club pedals, but the Tapex 2 is my favorite.

    I've always wanted to try one of these. I wonder how it compares to the Thunderclaw.

    Vintage Ensemble -- truly the best representation of a CE-1 out there IMO.

    My favorite is the standard Supermoon. Followed by the Dark Echo.

    SS Echo Chamber-I have it set up next to an Echoczar and just below a tube/SS Binson from Marcello and it holds its own at 1/5-1/10 the cost!

    I also really like the Deluxe Plus Plus, a very good representation of the Brown tremolo and a really good reverb. Plug it into a 210 combo with decent mids and you've got a 63 Vibroverb for much less than a real one!

    I had a deluxe plus and would have kept it if there was some way to bump the volume up a bit.

    I have a Drunken Monkey and it rules, it can be very subtle, over the top and everything in between

    for me it's the Shepard's End. I just love it, ever since I got it I have it on nearly every track I record in some way or other. it has somehow become, for me, a flanger that is also an always-on tone-enhancer. my setup's weird tho, y'know? I also love the Supermoon Chrome, but the SE is the bees kneez for me.

    Shepard’s End for me. It makes those good (evil) space noises and the graphics remind me of the first Blue Öyster Cult album. Best served with reverb and eyeliner.
