my own. I'd rather build them. (sorry, I'm from GB&C, haha)

But I recently picked up a vintage-y morley Power Wah. Sick as hell. I don't MIND digitech, but I don't love them..

Dunlop for the wah, MXR for phaser, and EHX for the metal distortion.

I tend to buy a Boss or Behringer item first, see if I actually use the effect usefully, then if I do, I will buy a better version of that effect from a more b00teeq manufacturer later on.
#17
Dunlops Wahs
EHX's Modulation
and distortions from all around

well i have a higher ratio of EHX than most other stuff, but i also like fulltone and voodoo labs even thoug they are difficult to get hold of here.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I like a combination of different pedals.


Me too. Some pedals of a brand may be bad, while a similar pedal of a different brand can unleash the FOCKING FURY

Anyone who sticks with one brand when it comes to pedals is a retard, since most brands are only good at one thing.
#23
Yeah, Boss has good distortions and overdrives, while some of their modulations lack in realistic term. *cough* reverb *cough*

reverb is not modulation.

most boss pedals are intentionally dry sounding so that they don't change your tone too much, they just apply the effect to it.

I think the only thing that Boss has come out with that's worth its salt is the DD-7.

After that, why WOULD you stick to one brand? It's only limiting to your creative pallet.

First intelligent post in this thread, and of course, it's Horlicks.

Exactly, I don't understand brand allegiances with pedals, I prefer to mix and match to get exactly the sound I want for that particular effect. I normally hate Digitech, but I have a Whammy, and I really like it. I see no reason why anyone would have a favourite brand and simultaneously be knowledgable about effects, or anything for that matter.

Haha, you can have a favourite brand without buying EXCLUSIVELY their products. It just so happens you like a lot of the way their pedals are built/features/unique sounds, etc.

EHX. If they made an OD and a wah and they were as good as most others, I'd buy them. Hell, I regret both of my Boss pedals to the point I'm considering selling them for their EHX equals...

My overall favourite brand is probably DOD.

Boss: Delay, certain modulations.
EHX: Fuzz, delay (Not the reverbs though, they suck).
Line 6: Reverb, Delay.
ISP: Noise reducers.
Ibanez/Maxon: Overdrives, Delay.
DigiTech: You can probably guess.
Dunlop: EQ, Wah.

I'm not a big pedal user because I like to keep my signal simple, but I do really like what Build Your Own Clone has to offer. Plus the build process is really enjoyable...
