Bla-bla-bla Cheap things that got the trick done better than you expected

Talking about some cheap pieces of gear that you got and were quite impressed. Anything goes!

I myself got really impressed with the FAB flanger. To be honest, it does a perfect job for me, the bypass is pretty fine on this thingamajig too making it a great bang for the buck. Not the most versatile/flexible but still's a pretty' darn goo' thingamajig.

PS. I do realize this might have been done before, but not feeling like necrobumpin, besides definitely wanting to start a conversation with you people. Cheers

Grolsch pop top beer bottle seals as strap locks, a 4 pack is like $11 but you get two sets of strap locks and four beers outta the deal, not too bad.

Ibanez DE7, fantastic sounding delay.

Behringer US600, cheap as ****, shitty bypass but tracks as good as the PS5 add an expression pedal you got yourself a whammy.

as soon as i saw this thread i thought about my 15$ danelectro fab chorus. it dampens the sound a bit but it adds a cool effect and gets the job done

Agreed on the US600, though I'd argue with any of the Behringer units avoid using the footswitch. It's a standard tactile switch with a big chunk of foam on top. It seems to work, but I imagine that it can't be that great if you're even moderately heavy on footswitches. Looks like there's an IC right next to it, wouldn't gamble on it sticking around if the board flexed.

Joyo Vintage Overdrive... £30 for something THAT good... Tightens up metal rhythms/leads and also gives smooth drive tones when added to a clean signal. A mainstay on my pedalboard!

I'll go with the FAB Chorus.
I think it does its job very well.
I never liked the FAB Flange though.

I bought a beer bottle cap pickup that attaches at the strap lock and sticks on the body with sticky tack(although I had to replace it with tape.) but it was great for my old Gibson lg2 that I didn't want to drill a hole in for a pu.

works pretty good for 50 bucks and it was cool cause you could move it around the soundboard for different tones. Not sure who makes it but it was pretty dirty sounding gave a good bluesy tone

Nice, I kind of liked the videos on youtube on US600

Might grab me one sometimes in the future. Although I got whammy but having another pitch shifter for other effects might be cool.


I got a behringer octaver which is not really good at tracking but I kind of like the artifacts, it's in the true bypass loop so that also solves the bad bypass.

Behringer Ultra Fuzz I was given...surprisingly, it actually does what it's supposed to do, which is weird for a Behringer
I don't use it anymore but you can get some OK sounds out of it

Mooer orange 90 is a fantastic little phaser for the £35 i paid for it, does everything i could need although i did need to castrate it (take off it's knob) so I didn't keep changing it with my foot

We used a cheap ass Behringer Xenyx 8 channel mixer when recording our album and it gave us no problems. We had one lying around and were meaning to buy a more expensive one once we started recording, but we were testing out mic placement on the drumset in some test recordings and it just worked great. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
