    Basically I'm looking to expand my pedal board and I thought this would be the best way to get peoples opinions.

    My favorite pedal on my board is my Fulltone OCD overdrive. It's the perfect amount of drive to add a bit if crunch, especially if you have a SS amp, and it doesn't lose any low end. I have the tone knob turned to about 2 o'clock.

    So, what is your favorite and why? Any type of pedal.

    My current favorite is my Pigtronix Disnortion. Overdrive, Fuzz and Octave in a single pedal. Every single one VERY useful and separately switchable. No low end loss, despite the fact that it's not a bass pedal. :)

    Tuner. Because it is the only pedal I feel is a must have for live performance.

    My favorite is my Fodera Model 2011 it makes everything sound much better it's the only pedal I couldn't live without.
  5. My favorite is my Fuzzrocious Rat Tail. When I got it, I was on a quest for my perfect distortion sound, and it worked exactly as I wanted. Its the only time the sound in my head came out of the speakers. I used to never turn it off, my new band is a bit mellower, so it gets punched in and out as need be. I smile whenever its on.

    Darkglass B7K. Definitely not a plug and play pedal, but after a few hours its freaking amazing!

    I like envelope filters, fun on their own, and a crucial part of a synth chain of fx. Currently I have a source audio BEF, subdecay Prometheus, DOD FX 25B, 3Leaf GR. and a Guyatone Ultron. All different and wonderful
  8. Probably my Rusty Box... I use it mostly as a pre/boost for my Buster 200 and it has become a foundation for my sound.

    I have other pedals that are more fun, but my Fulltone Bass Drive is the one that stays on all the time. If we're deciding by hours of use and priority, it beats everything.

    My AnalogMan Bi-Comp. It changes the dynamics of live performance in just the right way.

    Right now I'd say my Dr. Scientist The Elements...super versatile dirt that goes from totally clean EQ to balls to the wall distortion. I mainly use it as a mild overdrive/boost though.

    For practice (covers from oldies, Motown, Dub, Funk, ...) My Behringer Bass BDI-21 because it has lot's of knobs that can be adjusted for imitating lot's of deep bass sounds. But it really lacks a Mid knob for live use and it looks like a cheap asian car.

    I'd have to say my B7K right away because it gets me to where I want to be tone wise. If I didn't have that pedal, it would be hard but I LOVE my ol' DOD digital delay. Actually all my delay pedals rule. I just love delay. A lot. If I didn't have those then I'd probably say the VMT. It's so hard to pick just one! Haha

    I'd have to say, Myco Three. Best, fattest overdrive I've tried! None come close.
