With my current setup it would be: Chorus, delay, and compression. The latter two engaged almost all the time.
If the amp has built in reverb:
...the rest is just for fun....
Boss TU-3, mid 90s Boss SD-2 Dual OD and mid 80s Ibanez CCL Dual chorus/flanger. Hey, that's what I actually use!
As a beginner my skills do not justify the use of many effects. Most of the time I am okay with my different amp channels and built-in reverb.
Other than that I would say: Some chorus and the Little Big Muff Pi (actually the only pedal I use sometimes). So I still need to discover my third must have pedal...
You never need to justify the use of effects, regardless of your skill level.
As far as that third effect, try a wah pedal, they're good fun and can be used in lots of different ways.
Considering I have some kind of non-pedal tuner, my choice would be :
* Low gain fuzz (EHX Double Muff or a Fuzz Face)
* Higher gain fuzz (Function(fx) Clusterfuzz)
* Enveloppe filter, because it's my my favorite effect ever ! (DOD 440)
Good idea! As my Vox modeling amp has tons of other build-in effects a wah pedal is probably the next logical step. When the time comes to buy one I will seek for advice here on the forum!
It'shard to pick. I have so many. I've been a pedal-whore since the 80s (that's what my friends called me).
(Not sure which ones)
I love the DOD envelope filter. I have one too. DODs were cheap and made in America.
I don't even own three pedals, the only one I use is a Xotic EP Booster. It's always on and I'll always own one.
I like boost pedals!
Totally depends on what I am playing, but assuming it is my folk project, and that I got an amp where I can get just the clean tone I want, without having to use the preamp and equalizer pedal I would normally use to insure that, and that it got a nice reverb sound as well, I would have to say these three:
Boss LS-2 (That I use with the parallel B effects loop empty for blending in uneffected clean signal with my modulated signal with an effect/clean mix ratio at about 60/40)
Behringer UT100 Ultra Tremolo (Just an older model name, but the exact same pedal as the UT300, and a pretty accurate true bypass clone of the the Boss TR-2)
Behringer UV300 Ultra Vibrato (A pretty accurate true bypass clone of the Boss VB-2, and as I blend it with clean signal practically functioning as a deep very lush chorus effect)
I use the tremolo effect blended with some clean uneffected signal for adding sort of an extra dimension to my clean tone a lot, my playing mostly consisting of finger picking with very little chord strumming involved, and I absolute love the effect of the tremolo going into the vibrato, and then that signal blended with some clean uneffected signal, giving an effect, while not really sounding exactly alike, but in some aspects still quite similar, to that of a harmonic tremolo, just with a stronger chorusy quality to it, if that makes sense, though I only find use for that in a couple of songs.
If the amp has both OD and reverb I'd only need my delay pedal. It's a mid 80's Ibanez DDL.
I only gig for myself and occasionally for Mrs Scrogshaw in the back bedroom!. No pedals. My sound comes courtesy of my Epiphone SG and my Vox Mini 5 amp. 10 different amps and 8 effects (although I can only use one 'effect' with one delay type ''effect').
I only have basically two sounds. 1) Hank Marvin played through the clean amp choice with a little reverb.....and 2) Tony Iommi played through either the UK 70s or 80s amp modeller with a bit of gain and the treble tweaked.
Since this thread has resurfaced, I'll update my list. Still need a fuzz pedal, but which one changes depending on need, one of my current favourites is a silicon Tonebender I built. Second would be a boost pedal, again they can vary, but the DOD Bifet Boost is a regular. Lastly I'd say my modded Hendrx wah because it's got a big range and there's lots of ways to use it.
Always a tuner.
