Boss SD-1. I have two Japanese ones, been using them since about 1983 or so.
EHX Holy Grail. Big knobs and switches, can change level and go between spring hall and flerb with my foot!
Ibanez MT10 Mostortion. I wouldn't want to take it off, partly because it's a keeper but also because I don't want to disturb the jacks which are connected directly to the PCB - I've already repaired one of them and once is enough.
I recorded a song at a friend's place back in 2000, using his Mostortion to create a creamy lead guitar sound, and at the end of the session he gave it to me!
Many years later I discovered he'd bought it from another guitarist I know who'd now love to have it back, but he's not having it.
Unless I want a totally clean sound it's always on, giving just the right amount of subtle crunch and compression. It goes after my Beano, 1.5, Green Ringer and wah, then my signal hits an EQ and a passive volume pedal before splitting to the dry amp and wet effects.
An Ibanez tube screamer that I’ve had longer then any guitar I still own. Thing is older than most of the people I work with...
I guess that would also be my remote island board
Strymon Flint probably.
Oddly enough, since I don't play metal, I have had one of these since the '80s, before I could even play guitar and still have one today.
Donner Yellow Fail delay. My delay needs aren't great and it meets them. I've never had any desire to even try anything else. I've been through a few reverbs and ODs, but for the touch of delay I like to use, this is plenty...
Keeley Super Phat Mod and a DD3 ..
Merry Christmas, everyone!
Big Muff. I bought it for $10 in 1986. I seldom use fuzz, but when I do it’s the big muff. I’ve had it long before I even had a board to put my pedals on.
I’ve not been buying pedals for more than a few years but I really like the JHS Bonsai pushed by an 80’s Japan-made Boss SD-1. Tons of great “Tube Screamery” tones. Super versatile combination if you like that sound. I had borrowed lots of pedals prior, tried all sorts of combos, and these two stand a good chance of making it a good long while on the board I think.
Clean boost, great with any amp.
Compressor, always on
I don't have aboard but the pedal most used is my Boss DD-7 Delay or MXR Carbon Copy. Delay pedals are all I need!
A Rat and a Boss delay. We're all married...
What pedal has been on your board the longest?
With or without a pedal board, for me it's undisputably the wah-wah ! Two short samples :
Funk style Rhythm and Wah Rhythm (at the end of the tune) + piano + backing (done by a pal afterwards) - guitar : Squier Std Strat played through a Roland MicroCube :
Funk Rhythm demo, no backing - guitar = Squier Std Strat and amp : one of my DIY one, I think... :
But it's me, OK ?
