SoundTank Chorus. Second was a SoundTank delay. Both are long gone.
Havent used a chorus since.
Yup, that's the one. Destroyed a perfectly good brown Fender Princeton with that. We used to run bass, guitar, and a microphone (via a Radio Shack pa/mixer thinghy) thru that poor amp. Had I known then what I know now....
My first stompbox was one of these. This is a random picture of one I pulled from Reverb.com, but mine is in similar condition.
Bought the guitar around the end of April 1999, bought the pedal a few weeks later. It still works, still sounds fantastic, I just don't use it very often.
Gibson Maestro Fuzz Box
An old Maestro Fuzz Tone!
THIS was my first one! I've been using it with bass guitar back in 1990.. I was a black-thrash metal addicted and I wanted a heavy distorted bass sound at the time!!
Mine was a DOD Phasor back in the early eighties. I couldn't afford a BOSS BF-2 Flanger, so I settled. It looked like this (not mine):
DOD Supra Distortion I got through the MF mail order catalog. Later I did a swap with a kid at school for a boss delay. Foolishly swapped back a few weeks later. Later I swapped with the same kid my crybaby for his RotoVibe pedal. And then I wanted my wah pedal back. What a goof I was.
SD-1 and ds-1 both at the same time because I couldn't remember which one did what. Ha
My first pedal was a Behringer chorus orchestra, I
knew nothing about guitar pedals (or guitar) so I thought that any pedals does Overdrive...
1988 DOD Supra Distortion. It was terrible, but at the time, I didn't know any better.
My first pedal was a Dunlop cry baby. I was in my teens and thought that wah pedals were amazing
Zoom 1010, ordered via MF catalog---man it was a glorious Saturday morning w/ no cartoons when I first plugged in. After only a week I traded it in for a Zoom 3030. Total kids stuff. First traditional stomp box was a DS-1 way later.
I kinda miss that krappy Zoom. Wonder what I'd think about it today...
1987 - Boss CE-2 chorus
A Boss BD-2 and I sold it and I wish I hadn't. I don't have many pedals but my Wampler Plexi-Drive Deluxe and Joyo Sweet Baby are not going anywhere anytime soon.
My first stomp box was not a stomp box. I had a DoD volume/wah first. Not really a stomp box, but it was my first effect. Next was a Digitech RP5 (one of the first generation multi-effects). That one you did actually stomp on, but it was a multi. This was way back in 1994.
I can't even think what the first true stomp box I bought was. It was probably 15 years later though.
For me, a "stomp box" is anything you can step on to engage.
Dan Electro Fabtone. The old big metal one.
Bought it because it was THE pedal of 2 of my favorite bands at that time: Mono and Mogwai.
