After I started buying a bunch of digital gear (Rocktron Chameleon, Roland VG-8, etc.) about 7-8 years ago and not playing in bands steadily I sold almost all of my tube amps and pedals. Some very lucky folks got some old Boss, Ibanez, and MXR pedals for VERY cheap a few years ago. Fast forward to the last year. Over the last year I've been putting together a pedal arsenal again. In the last two weeks I've bought probably 10 pedals or so from various on-line sources. So far here's what has come in and my impressions: <ul>[*]Johnson Analog Delay - OK, I know most of you are chuckling right now. We've all seen these and laughed thinking it would be junk. Well I find it to be a very cool delay. It's a little on the edgy side but not harsh sounding like a typical digital delay. For $33, I'm thrilled. [*]Rockson Analog Delay - so if you weren't laughing before, you are now. And rightly so. This thing sucks eggs. The end of the delay has this wierd sound warping artifact that's really obnoxious. This one's going back up on Ebay. [*]Electro Harmonix Holy Grail Reverb - wow! that's what I have to say about this thing. It sounds great. Even the Flerb setting is very useful. This thing sounds better than a real Fender spring reverb I recently tried out for dirty signals. [*]Ibanez AD-202 - this is a rackmounted analog delay. This thing kicks butt. It is simply amazing sounding. It has delay, doubler, chorus, and flanger settings. What is super cool about this thing is you can use pitch modulation with the delay. This is a very cool piece. [/list] I've got more things coming this week so I will post more findings.
