        Ibanez FZ-7. I don't know why, but even when I was a beginner and didn't know anything about effects,fuzz just seemed like it was right for me. Still is, too.

          My first effects were a DOD 250 overdrive, a DOD 280 Compressor, and an old tape echo that were all given to me.  The frist effect that I actually BOUGHT with my own $$$ (& several years later) would be my Digitech RP-1:




          Believe it or not, although it's been through 2 or 3 batteries and the volume control is a little scratchy, the old RP1 is still alive and kicking & I use it regularly for band practice.

            I don't remember what the first pedal was that I spent my own money on was.  I do remember one of the first pedals I got my parents to buy me way, way back in time when I was a young teenager was a Boss CE-2 Chorus.
