  • Favorite effects?

    I'm pretty new to single effects pedals, having gone through a host of multi units. I also haven't spent much money on those I have yet, but I've become very fond of my Boss AC-2 Acoustic Simulator, Behringer Digital Delay, and DOD Grunge pedals. I rarely use the Grunge by itself, but mated with the AC-2 I really really like it. I also use the Delay and AC-2 together. I predominantly play SSS strats.

    Digitech Whammy always makes me happy. I love octave effects essentially. They're always my favorite noise makers.

        Whammy is fun, loopers are alot of fun, springy verb is luxurious and tapey delay melts my heart.



        OP, if you stick around here expect ALL of those pedals of yours to change.
        Smooth deals with: duncan, the_bleeding, MrSandMan, 6StrngStrangler, mmmmmchina, gproud, Onehourlater, driverhasabomb, bluehuricane, melx, TheErosion, gschmittling, BrianPhase90, roaring20's, ibentmywookieFender Custom Shop '52 TelecasterGibson 2013 SG StandardFender Deville III 4x10Oh Henry! chocolate barsPedals n' stuffhttp://bearflagbearflagbearflag.bandcamp.com

            Favorite to least favorite (all of them I like though) Fuzz, reverb, delay, tremolo, octave



            Fuzz: mid-fi electronics demo tape, analogman peppermint

            Reverb: subdecay spring theory, EQD ghost echo

            Delay: endangered audio ad4096, catalinbread echorec, EQD disaster transport

            Trem: fulltone supa trem, EQD hummingbird, catalinbread pareidolia (trem, phase viby goodness)

            Octave: micro pog, pog2, boss oc-2



            these are my favorite effects and in the order of preference. I could definitely live without an octave on my board but right now letting go is hard.

                Grunge and an AC-2? I'm curious of the sounds this makes.



                I would try out a cheaper analog delay, an MXR Carbon Copy or something, and compare it to your digital delay. Analog doesn't have as many features (usually), but it's a softer and warmer delay.



                There's so many options for modulation...I'd suggest picking up a Line 6 M5 or M9 and see what you like. If you're really digging the reverbs or vibratos, test out some other pedals to see if they have what you'd need. When buying used from here or The Gear Page you mostly break even but would get to test out different effects.



                You might want to try putting the delay at the end of your chain, It's the "proper" way, but before works too if you like the sound.

                        Adam, here's a video from a couple of days ago. It's a Dean Cadillac Select with EMG 81/85. I uses the grunge/ac2 in it. Pardon the lack of any real playing skills.

                            My favorite combo: mostly wet octave down DOD fx35 > high sensitivity DOD fx25 and some fingerpicking/palm muting.
                            -I predict that this thread will not end well.

                            So what if it's on fire? It sounds great doesn't it?
