Mine, believe it or not, was an Ampeg Scrambler. I got it with my first electric guitar when I was 14. This lady was selling a guitar in the classifieds in my hometown. Her son, who was off at college, had played but had lost interest. After buying the guitar (cheap piece of crap) for $35, the woman said, "Here, you might as well take this too" and she handed me the Ampeg Scrambler. I asked her what it was and she said, "It's a Scrambler... I guess it scrambles up the sound." I got home and plugged it in... nothing happened. I figured it was a broken piece of junk, so I gave it away. I didn't know effects pedals needed a battery to work. What was YOUR first effects pedal?
