For you pedal enthusiasts out there, what is your must need guitar pedal on your board? (Besides the DS-2 and WH-10 of course, that’s a given haha).
I’m a big fan of modulation type pedals (chorus, flanger, phasing). One pedal that I don’t believe will ever leave my board is the Fulltone MDV-1. That thing just straight channels Hendrix or Pink Floyd to me.30th June 2019 at 20:01 #493phjilParticipant
Big Muff OpAmp Pi 😀30th June 2019 at 21:11 #494PortiaPorcupineFanParticipant
I would say that it’s a cross between the Earthquaker Devices Rainbow Machine and the EQD Disaster Transport SR. I have a pair of Rainbow Machines and as tripped out as one is, a pair is even more out there.
The Disaster Transport SR is basically an old tape delay in a modern pedal form. It can get some great sounds. If you want the sounds of “motors dying and the tape’s wearing out”, you can get that too. It reminds me of when I messed with my late uncle’s Univox tape delay. There were times when it worked and times where it would freak out and the tape would go “rrrrreeeeeerrrr” “wheeeeeerrrr”. It was pretty amusing. Then, the motors stopped working altogether.
But, with the EQD Disaster Transport SR, I can get these weird sounds on demand. It’s absolutely killer.11th August 2019 at 09:21 #719Dave SimpsonKeymaster
Besides the DS2 and WH10 it would have to be either my Zoom G2.1u or my Marshall Guv’nor 2 plus.
But then there’s the tone city golden plexi and marshall jackhammer.
So hard to pick. : )29th August 2019 at 20:23 #856JoseEarly93Participant
Big Muff OpAmp Pi
Love this pedal so much. I’ve had the regular Big Muff Pi and an older Russian (black box) version, as well as a clone of the triangle muff, and the OpAmp is by far my favorite.
This week I got a Walrus Audio Iron Horse distortion and its a total monster. Its kind of fuzzy like the Big Muff but its really dark sounding. Would probably be great for a sludge / doom sound. Really expensive pedal though – I found one used for cheap locally and planned on selling it to pay for some other gear, but I may end up keeping it because of its unique character.
Its missing the output jack nut & washer so I emailed Walrus Audio and they are mailing me a replacement for free! Thought that was very cool of them.6th September 2019 at 22:02 #942
