    CE-5
    BF-2
    DD-3
    OC-2
    DS-1 (on guitar)

    They also have a bunch of just random useful pedals to have around like the LS-2, NS-2, their EQ's, Tuners, etc.


    Boss makes great stuff, never had a problem with them.

    For bass:
    LM-2B Flat and smooth with the enhance knob set around 0-2.
    OC-2 Japan Needs nothing!
    BB-1X Great for adding a pillowy touch of dirt to clean amps.
    GEB-7 (Monte Allums Plus Mod for noise reduction)
    CE-2B (Monte Allums mod)

    Not a fan of BOSS pedals in general but I do use their TU-3. Good, solid tuner.

    Once owned a GEB-7 and currently looking to replace my RC-30.

    I have a few on my GAS list. I've got my eyes on the OC-3, ODB-3, RV-6, ES-8 and the Waza TU-3w and DC-2w.

    MS-3 Multi Effect Switcher. Yes, I know it is not a single Boss pedal but it is a kind of “Boss effect pedal greatest hits” in modelled form in one single unit with 3 x external loops for other pedals. Good bit of kit which has pretty much every Boss effect over the years inside it. I don’t have the original pedals to compare it to (and this *was* the first Boss pedal I bought), but it is certainly versatile and does the job. Alternatively.... LS-2. Swiss Army knife for pedalboards.

    That's all I got, can't make it to 5.
     
  19. No Metal Zone jokes? I mean it's the only pedal you'll ever need.
