    You should grab an EHX Pulsar if you like trem. Inexpensive, American made and lots of wacky/awesome sounds.

    Definitely my Boss CS-3. I need it for that compressed cleaned country sound as well as for smoothing out those overdrive pedals.

    (and though it wasn’t asked, at a close second was my TC Electronics Hall-of-Fame pedal)

    BBE SoulVibe - It was one of my first pedal purchases because Tim Sult of Clutch uses (or used) one. Still sounds great to me!

    I have a Boss DD2 delay that I have owned longer than any other current pedal, it sounds great (to me, I see a lot of pros using them too)
    My oldest pedal that I acquired earlier this year is a 70s Thomas Organ wah, I rewired it with a DPDT switch so that it is true bypass, has the stack of dimes style inductor. It even came with the original box and owners manual!

    As ironic as it seems, the pedal that has been on my board the most is the one I like the least - a Tube screamer (or some variant): TS9, TS808, Vox v810, MXR GT-OD, Bad Monkey, Digitech CM-2, Fulltone FD-2 & 3, and on, and on...

    It took me quite sometime and dozens of variations to know I didn't like it. Slow learner I guess (helps to have the right amp for it too, which I didn't, most of the time.)

    As of now, I have an Ibanez NTS (Nu Tube Screamer) and its not going anywhere...I like that one the best of all of them.

    After 20 years I actually went clean slate a few months ago and started over, but before that the longest resident had been the VS Route 66, mostly for the versatility.

    Mine is built into the amp, it is the middle stage of gain on my Bassbreaker 15 (three stages) I was a devoted Blues Jr user. It died :oops:. Went into Music Go Round to get a second one, they were out:cry:. But they pointed out they had an amp with the exact 5 tubes. Verdict -IMHO Each stage is so different from each other. The middle stage just like a Blues Jr :D Yeah !!!!!!!!! 20201207_145910~3.jpg Life is good

    Ground Control MIDI controller/Morley ABY/Morley Optical Wah. The board was built 30 years ago and I can't remember which was screwed down first - probably the MIDI.

    Diaz Tremodillo that I've had since the mid-90s. It's a very early version without on/off indicator led.

    That Digital Delay ain't bad. I've got one and it does the trick well enough to keep me from spending more!
