so, always see a lot of "show us your pedalboard" threads, but have always been curious about how people feel about each of their pedals. Format is tiers, ordered within from favorite to least. Feel free to add as much or as little detail as you'd like. Probably the best way to explain it is for me to just do mine as an example: Tier 1: Would panic if I had to replace these pedals: 1) Orange Two Stroke - two band parametric EQ with clean boost. I haven't found another pedal really like it and it's freaking amazing. Irreplaceability and loving the tone are the magic duo that gives this the #1 spot. Some pedals have as good of tone, and some are as unique, but none of my other pedals have that combo. 2) Pigtronix Philopher's tone - Optical Compressor with wet/dry blend I hated compression until this pedal. The combination of optical quality with a wet/dry blend is magic. This stays on 90%+ of the time and only gets turned off for some rhythm parts where I need the extra strumming dynamics response. There's maybe 3 pedals that could replace it and they're all more expensive. 3) Fulltone Fulldrive2 MOSFET - Two stage overdrive. This pedal just works for me. AC15s are famous for being fickle about drive, but this one works well in my system. I use it for a very articulate overdrive that's more aimed at riffs and rhythm than creamy leads. Although it can also do creamy leads when the boost stage is engaged. Tier 2: Really love it, but not irreplaceable: 4) Electro Harmonix Lester G - Leslie simulation pedal with expression pedal. This holds the honor of being my most expensive pedal, especially if you add in the cost of the expression pedal too. And I do love it. But I just don't use modulation a ton. It's my favorite modulation effect, but I could take it off my board and not miss it too. Which, again, isn't a knock on the pedal at all, it's fantastic at what it does. I just don't always need modulation. I'd buy it again if I lost it, but I wouldn't rush. It also takes up a ton of space on the pedalboard. 5) Friedman BE OD - Marshall in a box pedal. I actually use this pedal a lot and I really, really like it. It actually stays on the Normal channel of my AC15 permanently on, so that whenever I switch over to the normal channel, it's like I have a hotrodded plexi. Perfect. So why isn't it higher? There's a ton of amazing Marshall in a box pedals, and it's expensive. If I had to trade this for a dirty little secret, a Marshall guv'nor or even a generic Donner pedal it wouldn't be the end of the world. So, it's the best at what it does, but not by as much as the pedals above. 6) Electro Harmonix Canyon Delay and Looper It's my favorite Delay pedal ever. Small, tons of great tones, super versatile. I'm just not a huge Delay guy. I actually use it more frequently as a looper for practice than as a Delay pedal. I'll go literally weeks completely forgetting about it. Tier 3: Like it, it gets the job done, but not married to it either 7) Donner Tuner It's small. It gets the job done. It's cheap. I've thought about replacing it with one of the micro polytunes but just have no reason to. 8) Electro Harmonix Switchblade+ a/b/y pedal. It's an a/b/y. It doesn't have phase or ground lift options, but since I'm using it as a channel switcher on the ac15 rather than to select different amps, it works great for me. But it's also just a channel switcher. 9) Vox 847a wah I'm not a wah guy. I'll use it for cocked wah tones sometimes. But I could leave this at home for almost every gig and not miss it. It's good looking and it's tone works well with my amp. It's my favorite wah, but I don't actually care about it or use it a ton. Not a knock on the pedal, but I'm just not a wah guy 10) Electro Harmonix Nano Big Muff - fuzz It's fine. I don't use it a ton, but it gets the job done when I need fuzz. If I used fuzz more I might look into upgrading it, but it's fine for me. It's pretty cheap these days. It's pretty low on my dirt hierarchy. Tier 4: don't hate it, but it's either in a drawer or I'm considering taking it off my board 11) Electro Harmonix Nano Pog - polyphonic octave generator It's actually pretty awesome, but I didn't use it a ton, it took up too much board space and had good resale value. So I sold it. I miss it every now and again, but not enough to consider buying another one. 12) Behringer Echo Machine - Delay It's fine enough sounding, and it will do stereo input and output. But I just don't care about delay very much and it isn't able to be a looper like the Canyon. It also has a ton of tiny knobs that are impossible to use at a live gig. And it feels cheap and the switch has no tactile feedback telling you it's on or off, so you have to rely on the light. The knobs are super finicky and it's easily to accidentally nudge them and end up in a drastically different type of delay. Somewhat complicated to use. Tier 5: I dislike this pedal 13) Boss Blues Driver overdrive. In the times we live in, with as many options as we have for overdrive, I just don't get this being the one somebody picks. My opinion but I don't get it. This is the pedal that convinced me to never again buy a pedal without trying it out first. Bonus Tier: I'm very intrigued and considering adding this pedal: 1) Wampler Euphoria. Very intrigued by the idea of a dumble pedal. I've demoed and liked this quite a bit, but not with my amp. Don't really need another drive pedal though. 2) Vox handwired volume pedal Looks good. Matched my amp. Never felt a need for a volume pedal but this is #1 on my list if I do. Thought about using it to blend the two channels on my ac15, but in the end that seemed more complicated than I wanted to deal with. 3) Electro Harmonix Soul Food Again I don't need another dirt pedal, but am interested to see what the fuss is about. I've never really used a Klone before. 4) Electro Harmonix Crayon. Again, don't need another drive pedal. But I did demo this (not with my amp) and thought it was very cool. However in the end I decided it doesn't do anything my fulldrive and Two stroke don't do much better when I stack them.
