First was a Boss DS-1 Distortion, then a Morley Wah, The BOSS purple analog delay, Chorus and Phaser (I still have the Chorus and Phaser) and still have MXR Flanger (with 110 power cord!) MXR Dyna Comp, Rocktron Banshee, Phil Hilborne Treble Booster, Cry Baby wah, Ernie Ball Volume Peda, T.C.Electronics flashback delay. Then Effects Processors, Had the Roland GP8, Digitech RP14D, Boss GT PRO. Still own... Tech 21 PSA-1, TC Electronic G- Major, Digitech GSP1101, Line 6 XT Live, Boss VF-1 and don't even get me started on Amps. Im sure I've had more stomps but the above are the ones that stand out.

My first ever was Boss HEAVY METAL PEDAL which I just loved smile.gif First multi board is the one I still have! My trust GNX3! I've tried every multi board I could get my hands on (they don't carry axe fx or other high end gear at guitar center) and none of them seem to have as much usable gain/crunch as the old GNX3. The tube screamer emulation it does is great as well. The signal path is setup for lead tones IMHO, with Gate, Compressor, EQ, cabinet emulation etc. Has WAH WAH to boot. I"m gonna buy a spare so I"ll have one when this one dies.

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

Boss OS-2. I thought it was so much cooler than the other Boss pedals because it had overdrive AND distortion. tongue.gif I still have it too!

at some point my favourite chorus on that one stopped working.
it somehow still works on the presets but not as single effect <.<

My first and only pedal is the Boss DS-1.Doesn't sound very cool if it's your only source of distortion, but great to boost the signal for leads.

You started really good! I use it combined with my Mesa Boogie tone when I need more drive and it sounds very good!

My first was the old RAT distortion pedal and a dunlop cry baby. I dont know if I still have the RAT, I hope its around here somewhere. I still have the cry baby and its still in mint condition because I was never really good enough to use it properly!

Boss OS-2 A very nice pedal, with a wide tonal range.

my first pedal was an EH BigMuff (because thats what Cliff Burton had). my first processor was the Boss ME8 Bass Processor:

http://medias.audiofanzine.com/images/norm...fects-67071.jpg

it was yellow. really? yellow? but the sounds were so cool to my young ears (1995). the coolest thing about this processor, and that i havent found since in another, was the fact that one patch's reverb and/or delay would decay into the next, making patch changes seamless. But the sound of the distortion wasn't as powerful as the Muff. so this began my lifelong struggle between the quality of single effects verses the convenient ease of multi-effects and ultimately my unending quest for the perfect tone.

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 a boss od-1.
I gave it away to a friend, who is still playing this padal in his setup.



Shortly after that I had a Zoom 4040 Multieffect, which I loved. I played it for years, after I decided to sell it to one of
my friends guitar students.



cheers,

s.
