    If you are out on a gig and you could only use three pedals, an amp and a guitar; what three pedals you must have. Given the Guitar is an SG. The amp has reverb and sure a nice clean and OD channel.

    Go.

    Mine would be a Maxon OD808 for boost and additional drive, an MXR Carbon Copy. You never can go wrong with a little delay. Finally, a TC Electronics Poly-tuner. Hey, six string at a time in a loud club during the drum solo.

    That polytune is awesome.
    All six strings at once.
    Strobe mode accurate to 0.1 cent.

    Three different fuzz pedals.

    Currently they are; a Tonebender Professional MkII clone, a DOD Carcosa and a EHX Green Russian Big Muff reissue. :dude:

    I'm a simple man: Fulltone OCD and Crybaby could satisfy 90% of my needs. Throw in a delay and I'm set. :D

    Provided the amp is a Vox AC30:

    1. Crowther Hotcake OD
    2. Delay (currently an MXR Carbon Copy)
    3. Fuzz (currently an Analogman Surface NKT275)

    But most of the time I get by with only the volume knobs on the guitar and the reverb in the amp.

    Crybaby, Tube Screamer, and maybe an EQ.

    I have this thing about/ against most pedals. Most times I want as little as possible between the guitar and the amp. I do keep the Crybaby on most days. The Tube Screamer is there for when I'm running the clean channel and want a sudden punch.

    Other than that it's usually just the amp footswitch that gets most of the attention.

    By far, my #1:
    [​IMG]

    Got this as a teenager in the late '90s as a birthday present to myself. I had no idea what it was at the time and only snagged it because it was $40 and said "tube" and "blue" on it. 2018 me thinks '98 me done pretty good.

    If there's a #2 and #3, I guess my modded BOSS CS3 and just about any Big Muff.

    Well, if the amp has a good clean and a good dirty channel and a good reverb,
    I would say a tuner, a modulator and a delay (the last 2 in the amps effects loop).

    If the amplifier has only a good clean channel then a tuner, a 2 sided dirt pedal and
    a delay that has some modulation included (A Source Audio Nemesis comes to mind).

    For me it would be
    1. ProCo Rat
    2. Pigtronix Class A Boost
    3. Dunlop Univibe

    Those are the three I use most.

    Fulldrive 2 - The Blue one
    H20 V3 - Again, the blue one, Truetone delay - chorus.

    Still have a H20 V2 and use them both, however,
    the V3 is a significant improvement over the V3

    The runner ups, not in any particular order are:
    TC Electronic Helix - not much but adds some nice spice when needed
    TC Electronic Polytune
    MXR 10 band eq
    Danelectro green eq - its old! and I think it cost $20.00 for it new! and it still works great!
    Used to have a solid state Fender Princeton 65 ss amp and used
    this to help tame the highs and bring out some mids.

    Bought this in a time of little money and hardships. This was a really super SS by Fender. It was loud and clean with a crummy speaker and it took pedals really well. Wish I still had this one.

    Has any one else used this amp? Is it as good as I remember it?
