My first buy was a DigiTech RP50. What was I thinking? Junk.
Memory Toy, I have no use for a delay. Really just need to sell it
Geez, bro... you could have sold the pedal and bought her the model she wanted, and saved the day! Or gifting her what she wants on your next pedal purchase, saying you got a buy 1 take 1 on something you knew she'd like!!
A bass wah wah pedal. Maybe someday it'll come in handy...
You should have gotten her a way huge swollen pickle instead.
Guyatone TZ-2 Fuzz. Shrill, no bottom end, can't cut through a mix. Might be useable in the studio some time so it stays in my cabinet.
Fender Starcaster Distortion! My first pedal... Haha. Piece of crapola.
No use for my Boss Dyna drive. I can control my picking/strumming quite well, and use the controls on the guitar.
Nor for the EH LPB-1. This got quickly replaced by an Analogman Beano Boost.
I'm quite happy with guitar straight into amp with a touch of reverb, so don't take my pedals very seriously generally. As a result I enjoy the truly random such as the WMD Geiger Counter - coupled with the Zvex ringtone, hit a note on the guitar, then put it out the way and play the pedals! Produces a sound which may well inspire the neighbours to write on the ghost/supernatural thread.
Most useless? This one:
But it has a joystick!!
All my amps are Fenders and they all have reverb and tremolo built in. I am old school... pre 1970. I like clean sounds. I bought 4 pedals years ago. They were an Ibenez Tube Screamer, Boss digital delay, Boss CS-5 compressor and a DOD Phaser... Tried them out a couple times and decided they all degraded my sound. I don't used any of them at all. I might get a Boss Tuner pedal someday. But I doubt it. A good tele straight into in a good amp is the best sound I have ever heard. But that is just MY opinion. YMMV, of course.
I can't be the only one here with a Zoom 505, can I?
I don't think mine's even had a battery in it for a decade or so.
Boss Acoustic Simulator- if there's a good sound in this thing, I haven't found it...
+2 (in the negative sense) on the Boss Acoustic Simulator. Actually Behringer made a pretty awful acoustic simulator as well!
Fulltone Catalyst. Fiddled with it for quite some time, but didn't like any of its settings. I've had much better sounding separate od, distortion and fuzz pedals than this wannabee 3-in-1 pedal.
Fender Deluxe - wanted some reverb and i thought I could also use it to "warm" things a bit but it's got a sampled distortion in the sound that you cant get rid of - totally useless to me. I should"ve tried it in the shop. Every now and then I see it in the cupboard and sigh. Very disheartening.
Rockman Distortion Generator. I mean, not bad but always the same color of tone, really Boston. Well I've played some Rush with it also that was convincing, at least for my ears at that time, cause I haven't been able to be pleased with it after a while. ;-)
Dano Grilled Cheese Distortion. Thought it might be so bad its good, but nah. Its just bad.
My Dad used to gig one of those, it died on him so it got eBay'd.
I'd say the Small Stone phaser I have is almost useless not because it sounds bad, but just because it only has two settings and no 'in-between' control. It DOES, however, help to warm up my MicroKorg digital synth.
Chorus, Phaser or Flanger. It's probably been 10-15 years since I've needed any of these. I have them, either in pedal or rack form, but don't ever use them. If I had known that before I bought, I could've saved the money.
Give me a good amp with reverb, a guitar and a cord. Might need a dirt pedal every now and then, but I can usually get that from the amp as well.
