    It’s surprising to me, but: Digitech EX-7 Expression Factory. I’ve been in this band for 12 years. Every other pedal on my board has changed or been replaced, except the EX-7. I only use the Leslie, Univibe, and Space Station delay sounds. It is great for those.

    I'm a little disappointed with this, but.. The Line 6 M9 for me. Dirt pedals have come and gone many times, but I still haven't replaced that pedal for modulation, delay and reverb uses. Actually, I cannot find a substitute for what it does and for its compact size, considering it as well 3 switchable pedals in line..

    Bluesbreaker-1024x881.jpg I've rarely used pedals, but the only one that I've used at all regularly since I bought it in about 93 is a Marshall Blues Breaker.

    I have put a board together this year with the usual delay, drive, reverb, looper and tuner, mostly funded by selling a Sola Sound Tonebender Fuzz that I'd had in a box of rubbish in the loft since buying it and hating it in 1976. It went to a collector I believe for an unbelievable sum. To each his own I guess.

    Boss SD-1 since about 1995. Around 2010 it received one of the Allums mods.

    It's not always used, but it's always been there!

    My trusty Boss OD-1. A friend gave it to me around '87-'88 (he disliked it so much, as he was into a metal/heavy distorsion sounds). It still works as 30+ yrs ago!

    Either the EHX Hum Debugger or Digitech Polara.

    I bought them at almost the exact same time.. not sure which was first. I've never really stopped using either one.

    My first amp and/or cable and/or guitar had a noise problem and no reverb, so there you go.
