    Stolen from the GDP, although we have done similar things here before.

    Choose one guitar, one amp, one pedal. (Tuner pedals don't count.)

    For me, my 2006 Blue Jr, my only amp the 6161 Electromatic Twin and an MXR Sugar Drive.

    If you're going to post, "I can't choose," or something similar, don't waste our time.

    I'll play
    AMP Quiltar Micro Pro Mach 2, 1x12 or 2X12 cab of my choice,
    GUITAR 61 Gibson ES330 VOS with Bigsby
    PEDAL Digitech Obscura Delay over the Boss DM3 because you said only one pedal and the Obscura does a pretty good slapback (not anywhere as good as the DM3)
    but it does a whole lot more and since your limit is one.

    Well for me it would be my new squeeze Jackson Soloist SL2Q MAH, my dirt cheap 'Subzero' Fender Bassman clone head and 4/10 cab and, if restricted to a 'single type' pedal then it would be any half decent Overdrive pedal if 'multi FX' pedals are allowed then it would be my old Zoom G7.1ut multi effects unit. I'm easily pleased :D

    My 3140 Historic and Vox AC15 is all I need.

    Audept needs my pedal choice for his rig.

    I don't think I'd need a pedal with these two in my arsenal. But since I get one anyway, I've heard so many good things about the Atomic Brain that I'll put that down as my choice.

    (I'm assuming that we can choose gear that we don't actually own. If you're asking us to choose from what we have, then it's my red sparkle G5620 and my Zoom G5 pedal. I don't own an amp: I go straight from the pedal into my headphones or my recording rig. I gig with my drums, not my guitars.) :)

    I had a Traynor YCV40WR that I liked a lot. I moved it on when I got my vintage Gretsch.

    You can interpret that however you like, as long as it's just one of each.

    My 1999 6120-60, my ‘78 Vibro Champ, and a Mystery Brain.

    I currently have the Dyno Brain into an RE-20, so the Mystery Brain would do everything I currently do, and more, and better!
