    If you could only have one effect,what would it be and why?
  2. Delay, because there is nothing more entertaining than a 3 AM jam with much use of the feedback knob. Depending on your state of mind, of course.

    Fuzz, because it fits so much of the music that I play. The only other effect I use to a great extent is a little compression when playing naturally, but I can live without that...

    For a while, I actually got away with just having one fuzz actually. I owned others, but I just used a lonely fuzz.

    So, that.

    Pedal - line 6 m13. It does pretty much everything.

    However we're probably not talking multi's.

    Single - Fuzz, probably my Supercollider.

    since my svt can do a gritty tone i wouldn't need an OD if I really wanted, so i'd go with a pog2. just based off pure fun.

    Normally I would say a delay.

    But the last time the only effect that puts a smile on my face, is usable and far out at the same time, is my EHX POG.

    So my only effect would be the... EHX HOG.
    (It's coming in to replace my POG.)

    Hmmm, deja vu.
    I'd go with overdrive but I'd be looking for a combination od/compressor.
  17. This has been done before...

    Flanger :p
