Guitar Pedals and Effects - your favorites (hard or soft)
« on: November 22, 2010, 01:14:34 PM »
I've become rather fond of http://www.tonefactor.com recently for their wide variety of pedals and effects.   Mainly because I just got a guitar, but I've always liked effects in so many different forms.

What are your favorites?  Your 'go to' pedals and effects?  Recommendations?   

Hardware / Software - it's all good.

Recently I've been getting into Native Instruments Guitar Rig. It does a lot of what I want effects pedals to do. I do wish I had the foot controller that goes with it, though. My old standby rig is a Line 6 POD, MXR Carbon Copy delay, Line 6 DL4 delay modeler, MM4 modulation modeler, MoogerFooger Phaser, and MoogerFooger LPF. I also have a Guild Copicat tape echo that is fun to play with. I have a Roland VG-88 guitar processor and GK-2a pickup that I have sort of forgotten about. I need to get those out and play with some more.
Never regret money spent on old books, old dogs or old friends.

I just got the Line6 M9 and I am in love with her. It's a nice little all in one box including a looper.
So far it seems really versatile.

Iīve just discovered this thread, time to warm it up :).

Pedals I really like are the original EH Polyphase from the early 1980s, the Schulte Compact Phasing "A" (although not really a pedal), the Mutron Biphase (same thing here), and the Boss CE-1 Chorus Ensemble.

Rack-mount gear I find essential would be the Dynacord TAM-19 Time Axis Manipulation System, Rolandīs 330 series of reverbs, delays, and modulation fx, the Sony DPS-7 series of stuff, and the Roland SDD-320 Dimension D. The Roland PH-830 Stereo Phase Shifter is also quite a good one.

Line 6 Delay Modeler  Cool for loops and echoes (sound-on-sound like stuff)
Line 6 Filter Modeler (ok, but one note at a time)
Line 6 Modulation Modeler (great fun)
Danelectro Black Coffee Distortion (love the distortion on this one)
PAIA Quadrafuzz (overdrive X4)
Morley Volume pedal (it's actually a fuzz wah volume pedal, but I only use the volume)
Dunlop Cry Baby Wah  (this is a good wah, just got it)
Lexicon MX200 Reverb/Effects Processor ( I was looking for a good reverb box, this was the same price as little boxes that did 1/10 as this would)
So, I'm a "Sr Member", huh?  In June it's SENIOR DISCOUNT TIME!!!

I'm a big fan of the newer MXR Micro Flanger. I've never been a fan of flangers, but this one is very rich and smooth with none of they typical metallic flanger artifacts.

I run my guitar through Korg D16, then TCM3000, then VS2480.

then I might pass the signal back through them all again.......
