    Not my oldest pedal, but my TU12H has been in continuous use since I bought it new in 1984. It's always been on my main guitar pedalboard.

    I haven't had the chance to try one yet, no. But I haven't heard a bad video on youtube, or read a bad review of one yet either.

    The pedalboard I have is a cover-all-bases-with-minimum-effort affair.
    The top row (Glowplug + WTDI) is always-on, fingerstyle. Glowplug is set very clean, very gentle, just to stop the WTDI sounding too sterile. Amp EQ is set for slap, and is switchable in/out.
    Bottom row is in the FX loop, and the full arrangement is:
    T-Rex Quint
    EHX Bass Soul Food (not purchased yet)
    Boss AW-3 (which is still at my parents house, despite having moved out over a decade ago!-must pick that one up.)
    Boss CEB-3

    So the Quint and the Chorus are there for ballad-type stuff, the AW-3 is there to funk things up, all that's missing is some huge-sounding drive. Bass Big Muff is the daddy, but I'd only have room for the Nano, and I've heard that you reeeaaaally need the deluxe because of the blend knob. Apparently the Nano sucks out a lot of the low end from your signal.
    Soul Food is a Klon clone, sounds great, is in the nano/compact format, and has a blend. Done.

    Just the Ampeg SubBlaster octave. That's the only pedal that has survived every reconfiguration and update. Got itnright when they came out in 2005. I wish it was a bit smaller, had an LED, and that the knobs would be just locked on how I like it...but I'll deal to get that sound!

    Cry Baby bass wah, since 2000 (one year after the production started, I think) it's the first in command on the pedalboard: big, heavy, fundamental. My Boss ODB3 left me some five years ago (but still on the shelf :cool: )
