id say the tu-2 simply because...its a tuner...unless you got a rackmount one...
Where is the Vox wah? Where's the Fuzz Face? Big Muff? Phase 90? Univibe? Ibanez TS808? Maestro Tape Echo?

basically every rig in the back of guitar world has an ns-2 in it, i've only seen one person with an isp and it was rob arnold. so i'd say ns-2.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.
I've seen a ton of DL4s lately, too.

Tube screamer or cry baby, i voted for the cry baby though, i dont think i've ever met a guitar player that hasnt used a crybaby at least once or twice
Treble>Epiphone Prophecy EX - MXR micro Amp - MXR Blue Box - MXR Fullbore - MXR Noise Clamp - Vox AD30VT
Bass>Ibanez BTB505 - MXR Blowtorch - MXR D.I. - Peavey MaxBass 700 - Peavey TVX410
/i'd say it's a tie between the TS9 and the NS2. if you counted all of th variants of the TS (808, 9, 9DX, 7, etc), the TS would win hands down. i know more people that use that pedal (or one of it's variants) more than any other pedal.

Lolz that guy is a noob.

Leave it on the press, Depress Depress Taboot Taboot.
I'm not sure if everyone runs it in their setup, but who doesn't own a tubescreamer???

Even if you don't see it in their "on-stage equipment". I'll bet they have one packed away at home somewhere.

I'd say Big Muff, TS808, DD-3, DL4, Tu-2, NS-2 not necessarily in that order, but those are on just about every board I see.

Unless its electronic drums.

I voted for the tubescreamer, but only because the TU-2 isn't technically an effect pedal.

I took a pic of myself, cut a hole in the face and stuck my knob through so i could see what I'd look like if I got bitten by a radioactive elephant.
