    I've always been a strat guy, but something about turning 40 has made me gravitate toward the tele (and caused me to add 2 to the family). What are your go-to pedals and why? Thanks in advance!

    A bit of delay or reverb, maybe some dirt and a tuner.

    It's always nice to plug straight into a good tube amp right at the sweet spot too.

    Ts9 is my go-to pedal, but this thread needs to go-to the pedal sub forum.

    I'm a strat player also (first electric, 1976 hardtail natural, bought in 1994 by my 22 year old self) and a used Peavey Stereo Chorus 400 channel twin. As I have clean and distortion on my amp (not bad for solid state), chorus, vibrato, and reverb the only pedal I need is a wah. Specifically a Dunlop volume wah, which I also use as a volume pedal and boost as needed.

    My Boss DD-5 delay is always on. I just click the tempo switch at the start of each song. I use the overdrive from my AC10C1, and only use a dirt pedal for lead.

    My primary setup includes a COMP, a neutral dirt, a TS style dirt, tremolo and delay. Those are my go to pedals. Although I have settled on certain pedals for my pedal board, they are not overly important to me. EG: I don't need a vintage TS-808 for TS style dirt, anything based on a tube screamer will work. When I use my HD-500 direct to console I set it up just like my pedal board and amp(s)... I get the same results with completely different tools.

    Always need a clean boost and a overdrive for sure. Lately gravitating towards a univibe like sound for color and a wah to accept solos.

    I've only had it for about a year, but the Donner Boost Killer has become a mainstay for me. It seems to be one of those pedals that makes everything sound better, fuller, richer for me, so it's almost always on. It's cheap too, so I'm going to get a spare real soon.

    My Bad Monkey has been on my board for about 10 years. So that's got to be on the list. And my Korg Pitchblack tuner.
