I have a I/O, Tuner, Noise Suppressor, Neve RNDI, ABY, all of which I don't consider to be an effect. Then I have a CAL Grizzly (for mild OD), and API Tranzformer LX preamp/compressor, both to help my tone sit better in the mix. I think of these two as sort of more like an amp sound to go to FOH, and not as effects. And a Micro Pog - definite effect. So... What do you consider to be an effect pedal?
