    I can't tell what it is. Picture is from 2009. I figured you guys might be able to help. From its position on the board it's probably an overdrive, but it could possibly be some kind of swirly mod effect.

    Def an old HBE. Probably a Power Screamer. Below is an example of a Tweed one, but HBE made a lot of variants and custom pedals over the years.

    the yellow pedals are rarely ripe and usually turn green, red or brown in a few months. It makes it difficult to i.d. by color. But they all sound different, in a pinch lick it, they mostly have very unique flavors..
