What pedal is your secret weapon of tone?

    For me it's the Strymon Deco for anything to do with playing classic rock. The saturation effect on it emulates the fat tone you get recording on magnetic tape. I love it.

    Dyna Comp For me. I use about 5 different settings from barely noticeable to full on squishyness but has become a staple on my board for my tonezz

    Yeah, I gotta go with my tweed amp. Pedals, for me, are for tonal effects not tone--reverb, delay, tremolo etc.

    Well, my EHX Sould Food modified by Alchemy is just delicious and has pushed my "go-to" Timmy off to the side. For now....

    This. A good amp wont really need any pedals, with maybe the exception of Modulation/Time effects.

    Sole Mate Spring Reverb. I use it with an 66 Ampeg Jet for small gigs and with a 65 Tremolux for bigger gigs.

    For my vht special 6 i leave a boss fdr1 always on. It makes up for the lack of a tone stack and reverb plus it ads a nice preamp fatness and tremolo if needed. The special 6's pentode/cathode switch is where i get my drive from, so just add a wah and a tuner and thats me good to go.

    Definitely my tuner pedal. Greatest type of pedal ever made!

    VFE White Horse compressor. Icing on the cake. Can add a touch of grit if desired too.

    The J Rockett Melody, I don;t use much of the gain structure, a little in but not much, I mainly use the amp tone. But the EQ on the front of it is crazy what you can do with it. Mine is set up like a Tube Screamer but you can do much much more than that with it. In fact it is almost limit less with what you can do.
