    I Bought a Ibanez TS-9 Reissue For 50.00
    Used in Box W/Manual

    Then, I Bought a Maxon OD 808 Reissue

    The Maxon Was Way Better,
    The Sound Quality Was Better
    The Controls Were Smoother

    I Was Looking For That Overdriven Sound
    With a Fender Super Reverb Reissue and a Strat.

    Sold The TS-9 For 50.00

    The Maxon Was About 80.00 - 90.00 Used

    Both Pedal's Were In Excellent Top Cond.



    Thanks

      The only pedal I ever really use..and rarely (not on BC gigs, but for casual jams and side gigs doing teh rawk)...occassionally I also use this along with the other one...and I bought one of these last year to use with the 5W non-reverb amps for rehearsal/home practice. in general, I went through tons of little boxes over 20+ years [everything MXR made, almost everything Morley made including the pic-attack {which I still own, but never use}, plus several flangers, echos {Echoplex, Roland Space Echo, etc}, Univibes, distortions, wahs, volume, a theremin, ring modulators, talk box, you name it] and finally realized that to sound like me, I didn't need any of them...but to sound like someone else, the BE5 covered almost all of it. I got that BE5 and the PDS1002 when they were first out on the market in the late 80s. Neither was cheap, but, here I am 20+ years later, and I still have both.

        I have a Digitech RP50 and an RP250 and I use both of them all the time (but not at the same time).

        One pedal I bought that I bought and only used once on a gig was a Danelectro Dan-O-Wah. It was billed as a sort of super-wah pedal, with switches to get 60s and 70s sounds out of it, plus a built in distortion. I couldn't hear much difference between the different wah sounds, the distortion was the worst I've ever heard, and it was way too hard to turn on and off. It did look cool though.

          I don't use pedals except for my pitch black tuner. I have a Univox Super Fuzz (like the picture above) which I like to play with sometimes. The only description is that it breathes fire and may have a little Japanese dragon in it.

          I do have an old MXR Dyna Comp that I used to use when playing slide. I liked it pretty much.

            Lately I've been playing through my Option 5 Destination Overdrive [original 24v version],Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone and TC Electronic Flashback Delay/Looper pedals.Mostly into my single 6V6 powered '60s Supro running into a Celestion G12T-100 loaded 1-12 cab.The setup sounds huge at lower volumes and takes up very little floor space.

                    Not really a pedal , but I've been playing and recording out of a Line 6 POD 2.0 alot lately. It seems to be a love / hate box, but I like it quite a bit (though I should from all the time I spent making my own patches in it. If it ever crashed and lost memory I would be a sad dude).

                      I've bought and sold so many pedals over the past 21 years it's hard to choose. Right now my favorite pedals are my: Fulltone Full-Drive Mosfet, Boss Blues Driver, Ibanez Tube Screamer, and Emma Reezafratzitz. I've got all I need, in the way of overdrive, when I add them to my Marshall TSL100. Gotta love analog.

                      The only thing I don't have much of an appreciation for in digital multi-effect pedals. I've done my time with those. The sound you get out of the amp simulations and distortions/overdrives is just crap IMO. There's not much punch, natural feedback, or warm overtones. But I never really had a problem with the effects. They were useful because I didn't have to tap dance. And the effect simulations weren't that bad if used in moderation. If you're going for a Leslie Rotary Speaker sound, you'll never get it. That's my $0.02. Bryan

                        I have a Bad Monkey OD that works well for me. I have a GNX3 that is useful in moderation and/or you aren't looking for a lot of dynamics; it's convenient. I wish I could find a chorus that that's like the one i hear in my head, but i haven't found it yet.

                          I only use a BBE effect. Improves the sound on all of my amps.

                            I have two "keepers" in my board. Other pedals come and go but these two are "my sound."

                            This is one of them:

                            I'm no shredder but Steve Vai's signature wah is awesome. The sound is amazingly clear and the action feels super-smooth. The contour switch and lead boost are also a big plus.

                            This is the other:

                            I spent a very long time looking for the right distortion and I think I finally hear it in this pedal. I mostly use the clean-boost channel unless I'm playing really heavy power chords - it just has a lot more definition and note separation than anything else I've heard - but the high-gain channel is great too. This is also the first pedal I've used that's usable in its extreme settings.

                              I just picked up a Lovepedal Superlead pedal that does the hot-rodded Marshall thing quite well.Also got a new Muza FD900 Reverb/Delay pedal that has some real potential for getting cool atmospheric/ambient sounds.
