Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face I bought in 1966.
big muff in the 70s which is mostly a blur.
When I got my bass rig (started on bass), i wanted a fuzz pedal coz my hero was Mel Schacher, and i wanted that "Grand Funk Railroad Live" sound. The music store owner screwed up and got me a wah instead. We subsequently got me the right pedal, but yeah, the first was an Ace Tone Wah Master.
A Fuzz Face, circa 1968.
This I wish I had it back, still the best Phase Shifter I ever owned
A Kay tremolo in a blue plastic case. It actually didn't sound bad at all, but it was ridiculously flimsy.
Probably my Cry Baby Stereo Fuzz Wah. I still have it. I should rebuild it.
Tube screamer here
Mine was a japan made fuzz, wah pedal with a siren.
Can't remember the name.
A bit of a departure but mine was an Xotic AC Booster. Still love the thing.
Mine's really embarrassing...
RockTek Distortion. Early 90s. It sounded like hot trash, even then.
Bought one of these in 1990.
Univox Super Fuzz , first version, they sold these with a lot of different names on them. I bought mine at a pawn shop in downtown Memphis in the mid 70s for $10, wasn't sure if it worked, it did, just needed a battery.
Some of these sell for stupid money now, but to me they still sound like a $10 fuzz! A 2 position tone switch , one was was super bright and raspy, the other was fat and midrange tone, that's the one I used.
Not exactly a stomp box but I bought a new EHX LPB-1 in 1980.
A few months later I got a yellow DOD 250 with a BF Bandmaster head and 2x12.
Mine was that black plastic Ibanez Tubescreamer, I think it was like a TS 5 or something. Not as bad as its reputation, but in my hands I made it suck harder than anything has ever sucked before.

DOD FX-65 Stereo Chorus, 1985ish. A few years, guitars and amps later I was off to college with that, a Digitech PDS-8000 8-second delay/sampler and one-knob phase shifter I can’t remember the name of. I bet my dorm neighbors loved listening to me practicing “Cult of Personality” with all three of those pedals cranked up.
After a pedal-less rack preamp phase I spent some time in a band in my 20s with a different 3-pedal setup that served me pretty well: a DOD FX-10 Bi-Fet Preamp into an always-on Pro Co Rat 2, into a BBE DI-10 active DI with the speaker emulation switched on. The Rat gain was low enough that it would sort of clean up when I backed off, and would go nuts for soloing when I’d step on the FX-10. The DI-10 took the ugly, fizzy top end off the Rat crunch. This combination worked well into everything I plugged it into, and even sounded okay running direct into mixers.
Nowadays I play fairly clean and mostly just use a compressor into a loud clean SS Peavey Special 150.
