Just like that smile.gif What was your first one?

The first effects processor I had, was a Zoom 505 biggrin.gif (That was happening around 1999)



And my first EVER pedal was (In 1999 exactly)



This pedal (The Rocktron I mean) was my first acquaintance with the term 'mid scoop', because of that mids knob you can see in the picture. It was a really aggressive distortion pedal that made A LOT of noise laugh.gif

My first pedal was a Flanger, I bought it because I liked the name.

First effects processor the Zoom 9050s, which I gave away a few years ago to a 12 yr old that got his first electric guitar.

MXR Distortion bought in the 80's. This is a pic of a newer model I think but mine looks almost exactly the same, I would have to dig it out to see but I think mine has the Script logo rather than block letters.

Oh and my first Multiprocessor was the Digitech GSP-21 which I later upgraded to the GSP-21 Pro and then again to the GSP-21 Legend.

[attachment=29107:gsp_21_front.jpg]

And then a bit later the GSP-2101 Studio Tube . This unit actually had a tube preamp with 12AX7 's for tubes If I remember correctly.
Great rig at the time.

Awesome topic idea! smile.gif

My first effects processor was Zoom 505 II - I loved that unit!

Its just so small and versatile.

I bought a secondhand PodXt a couple of years ago. I use it mostly as Audio Interface to record my self cos i like the Guitar Rig's effects more.
I still don't have any pedals, should I? unsure.gif I don't play gigs so I don't think so rolleyes.gif

I went to Tampa Florida and all these local music stores specialized in Death Metal gear as Tampa was a big center of gravity of Extreme music back in the day smile.gif And I picked up what they called the "Death Metal Rig" which is pretty simpe.

1.)Peavy Rockmaster Rack unit
2.)BBE Sonix Maximizer

put that through just a clean power amp, or an amp on clean channel and BINGO! Instant Death Krunch. smile.gif I recently sold my trust Rockmaster on ebay for $200 which I was shocked at. That's more than I paid for it originally smile.gif IT had 5 effects loops which was really handy to and came with a footswtich. I replaced the tubes with GROOVE TUBES and it just melted faces every time. But I found OVERLOUD and haven't looked back.

My first stompbox was my good old Tubescreamer, back in the Marshall days you just needed something to fire up your amps :-) I still have two of those old Tubescreamers, even though I am not really using them anymore, but I still consider them to be the best distortion pedal around.

Amen to that! My band mate in Aria also uses the TS808 to fire up his Mesa Roadking

The original TUBE SCREAMERS are so AWESOME that they have become collectors items and demand top dollar in Ebay. They make a great little preamp and tons of tolks still use them in the signal chain before their amp with the distortion turned all teh way down and volume mostly up to help saturate the signal patch in a tube amp and get that killer tone!

BIngo! Still works great smile.gif A TS808 really adds nice kick to a tube amp. I recently bought a GREEN MILE pedal which is a sort of Mini clone of an original TS 808. I'm going to put it in front of my Vetta Head.
