  • The "PEDALS YOU'VE BOUGHT BUT BARELY USE" Thread

    I'll start off -

    These are pedals I don't necessarily want to part with, after all, they don't take up much space in my world, but they usually sit idle.

    In order of most neglect:



    1) Boss Flanger - too wild for me, the occasional flanging I may want I can get from my AD60VTX or my ToneLab

    2) DOD Grunge - To me it's good for a few laughs and then box it back up. Now made by DigiTech

    3) Boss Metal Zone - This one I actually need to play with some more since it's been a while, but it seemed a bit over the top and didn't sound particularly organic to my ears. I'd use it more if there was such a thing as backing off the gain on this thing so I could just use it as a EQ boost, but no go on this extreme machine.

    Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!

          Marshall Jackhammer Distortion-Need to play with it more, wasn't too impressed with it the 1st time around. Still in box.

          Behringer Ultra Flanger- Sounds good, just don't use flanging much.

          Dunlop Wah- I break it out once in a while, but I get all of my funky wah sounds from a DOD Envelope Filter these days.

            Voodoo Labs Chorus pedal (gets only occasional use)
            Radial Tonebone Hot British Distortion (I don't really find myself reaching for it too much).
            Ibanez TS808 Reissue.

            I'm not really a pedal guy. My only other pedal that I gets regular use is my Digidelay.

              Same here. I never use it. If I want wah sounds I use the ones built into the modeler I'm using.

                  My Gig FX Chopper. Its a stereo pan/tremolo effect. Very cool but not something you want to overuse.

                      Ibanez Digital Modulation Delay pedal -- weird psychedelic Flanger/Chorus/ Delay hybrid -- great for sci-fi effects and space rock.
                      I need to use it more.

                        Actually, me too

                        I hesitated to put it in my original list because I really like them, but I rarely ever pull it out and hook it up. I also have a DOD Envelope Filter which I play with from time to time. But despite my little use with the Dunlop Wah, I would still buy one again.

                            Sans Amp GT2

                            Hissy, kills the highs and sucks out the mids a bit, the distortion is buzzy and doesn't blossom open like a real amp, anything but off-axis sounds harsh.
