    Yes I still have that Cry Baby, that, a Maestro Super Fuzz & a early 90's Big Muff (V7) are the only effect boxes I've ever owned. I keep 'em in a zip lock bags with desiccant and they still sounds great with no scratchiness.

    "Easy" by the Commodores - fuzz pedal, cable, and a mixing console input.

    Whenever I do that solo with OD pedals into a nice tube amp, it just sounds plain wrong :lol:

    You're gonna need a Digitech Whammy to nail this intro.

    Andy Summers was way more about the Electric Mistress than chorus.

    I play in a Pink Floyd tribute so I'm finding nailing sounds to be more important than in previous bands. Fortunately, the other guitarist tries to get every sound (and succeeds!) so I'm good with delay, fuzz, Rotosphere (for the DSOTM stuff), and a touch of phase. Oh yeah, a talk box for Pigs!

    I'll add, Born on the Bayou tremolo.

    Yeah - MB's playing on that album is what inspired me to get a LP Jr., in all of its P90 glory.

    I can get very close at <reasonable> volume levels playing straight through my Cornford Harlequin, but for bigger gigs I need to goose my 50w Koch MT with an OD to get into that zone.

    Cranking a Hiwatt must be a LOT of fun, though:D

    Satisfaction....gotta have the fuzz.

    Lonely Boy works fine with just a Strat's vibrato bar....it nails it so perfectly, I believe this is what he used in the studio.

    Aqualung was p90 into a Hornsby Skewes treble booster into the cranked amp. Love a tone like that!

    Probably the only boxes you'd ever need to, nice, really really nice.
