    Whats your favorite pedal out of all of yours?


  2. The Accelerator is my favourite, as it is most useful -
    The Brake is kind of - well, essential, I suppose, but can be ignored (especially if you're driving in Massachusetts...)
    and the other one, well - it is sometimes handy to use it when changing gears, but it's not as essential as the other two, as anyone who really knows how to drive will tell you...

    er, um - that's it...

    Probably my DOD FX55 Supra Distortion - thanks Freaky Fender!

    It's a disgusting and raucous (sp?) one-trick pony distortion that is just awesome at what it does....... and has no use in anything but some punk or metal. I don't care, it sounds so bad.... sorry, good!


    Or maybe my Akai Deep Impact or my DOD Deep Freeze chorus - both are lots more useful than the Supra Distortion, but, hey, "whatever"

  6. To be honest... I like my synths more than anything, just to have fun when I'm playing around by myself (har har... no jokes). I like to run two in parallel to get a double synth tone, it makes it really complex but you can get some really good techno non-sense out of it. And I have to second Parrot on nasty sounding distortions, my U.S. Big Muff with a modified tone circuit gets a sweet broken speaker sound. Sometimes things that sound like crap work well in a band situation... :rolleyes:

    Heh... you'de slip off your chair if you heard the squarewave/ring modular/upper octave that I made with my techie friend.

    Boss TU-2. No better effect for me than being in tune. Or silent. Yeah.

    my favorite effect would be my odb-3 mixed with my ceb3. it givw off a great synth tone. although i like all of my pedal equally.
  10. i miss that thing, but hey, i can get another one for $25 :D!

    I would say mine is either my Digtech Bass Whammy, or my Digitech XBD overdrive pedal, but if were going for convience and versitility, I have to say my Digitech XBD pedal, or my DOD Digital delay, or my Boss Phase Shifter.

    It's a cross between my Fulltone BassDrive or EBS MultiComp.

    The Bassdrive for the sound it makes.

    The MultiComp for it's pretty transparent multi band compression.

    i've got a thirty year old electro harmonix frequency analyzer. when i first bought it, i cracked it open to clean everything out... a dead cockroach fell out. sweeeeet...

    anyway, it's a big metal & purple clunker, with the input/outputs on the wrong side and it just sounds insane.

    Boss OC-2, horrible tracking but still the sweetest-sounding octaver out there.

    Boss PS-3 Pitch Shifter/Delay

    It's my favorite octaver, so I might pick it for that alone, but it also does great chorus and delay, just not all at the same time. For pitch shifting, there's 2 independent knobs that go from up an octave to down an octave, and if you turn the knob all the way to the end it shifts to +/- 2 octaves. My favorite settings are the simplest -- straight + octave down, and straight plus both up and down octaves. These 2 settings are all of the effects I really need for a show, everything else is just for fun.
