Just wondering what your favorite pedals are (and why).

I just got an MI Audio Crunchbox and after 10 minutes of messing with it i got a good lead tone and a few good rock rhythm tones. Usually it takes me several days to find a tone i like especially on distortion and overdrive pedals.

Because of this I'd have to say its my favourite pedal (at the moment at least).

What is your favorite FX pedal UG?

my delay pedals, there endless fun to screw around with. that or my digitech syth wah, that thing is just ****** up.

you can get it in either a rack or a pedal, but the bbe sonic maximizer. it's like adding a 2x12 and it makes things a lot clearer.

My Big Muff right now, although I love all my pedals pretty equally, the Big Muff has been in use a lot lately.

I can't pick just one. Probably the combo of my BOSS MT-2 and my Dunlop CFH Wah. I can get any tones from old classic Led Zeppelin to rampaging black metal with them.

congrats on the crunch box.

i wouldnt know what i would do without my muff. its a fuzz/distortion tonal knockout, and is a nice compliment to my crunch box.


Got any nice settings for the crunchbox?

I was looking at a big muff but i'm not too keen after i heard a few fuzz pedals. The Fuzz Face sounded way to thin and the BOSS fuzz i tried sounded really weak and shrill.

dist the whole way up, then back off a little bit. tone is a touch above muddy, but not too much into treble-zone. volume, just to match the cleans, but up a little bit for the extra bit of boost.

sounds like a muff is just right for you, fuzz-wise. nice and deep, rich, and full of gut-busting-growl and sustain.

I'd have to say my Digitech Metal Master . I only playing metal, speed metal, lots of thrash, and metalcore at home. I can make my Vox sound like an expensive tube combo. Very easy to find what your looking for, altough I just wish it had a gain knob to lighten up some of it. Then again, it is a Heavy Metal Pedal.

BOSS MT-2 can solve that. Even though it is the "Metal Zone" Distortion Pedal, there is a default setting to get a nice, smooth bluesy overdrive tone. Not that I'm saying you might be looking for that, but it just goes to show you how versatile it can be.

Actually I took my Metal back to get the Metal Master. It sounded way to treble for me, maybe good for slower lead and higher tones but it was way to frilly and fuzzy. I love how the Metal Master has so much more low-end and is tighter so my chugs are more audible and clear. And even though it IS analog, it doesn't sound fake or artificial at all. Of course it's not an entirely natural sound, but you could never tell. I'm not bragging, but I do have really good ears for sound and clarity. Working with audio for 7 years does that for you.

I found the Metal Zone lacks the versatility your describing (among other things... like tone for example )

The amp n Wah pedal take care of that I've got it set up so it runs smooth and sounds awesome

With a good amp and maybe an EQ pedal or 3 (one before the Metalzone, one after it and one in the FX loop) i got it to sound pretty good. Unfortunately the amp was my mates amazing 30 watt tube combo so i never got that tone out if it again.

At home I run through a Vox DA20 which is a pretty damn good practice amp but I gig with a Peavey 6505+. The wah I use is a Morley, not sure what one though. But it still sounded bad.

Well I guess my 7 years in audio helps, but hey. Tone is about personal preference so it may sound good to you. I'm just not fond of it.

It does get a bit saturated at times, so I'm slowly starting to get it out of the picture. At some point I'll stop using it and probably run my guitar through the Wah and straight into the amp.

Marshall is known for it's distortion, have you ever thought of just boosting it with an overdrive? Like the Bad Monkey or even DS-1. Cheap but very good pedals.

My bassist is trying to convince me to try switching over to his DS-1 [he used to play guitar]. I'll definitely consider that.

Turn it down to a very low level of gain and push the volume up to max to use it as a boost pedal (to get more of the amps natural distortion which probably sounds better than any pedal)
