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.

1. Tuner
2. Backup tuner?

I have a bunch of pedals, but they are on the pedalboard, and in the case...

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:

Fulltone Fatboost. Analogman Astrotone. Polytune. So its Dirt. More Dirt. And a way to tune the Dirt. :D

Cheers, Scott.

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:
QLpEbNa.jpg


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?
