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.

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 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
I have nothing important to say

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.

Dan'o Fish n' Chips is pretty good in my opinion. It isn't that cheap (used for 40 plus shipping) but I think the Digidelay is amazing as well. Fab Chorus isn't bad. BBE AM-64 is nice Marshall box. Very crunchy. Even better with a little mod.

Was going to buy an MXR 10-band EQ and they had at the store the dano fish n chips EQ. It's all plastic but wow, sound is really good for such a tiny unit ( and tiny price hehe) less than the third of the price of the MXR and makes its stand on my rig. Reliability? I don t know; I've had it for 10 days. Until now no problems but great sound.

I've got one of the Dano Pepperoni phasers, one pot, does what it say on the tin, cost me £15 off ebay, inc. postage. Quite a subtle sound, but probably all the better for that :-)

The Boss Blues driver is probably one of the best all around boosters out there. It's got tons of highs for a treble boost, the higher gain settings aren't too bad with the tone rolled off, and it's got loads of output. You can find them all day on craigslist/kijiji for $50-$60, and beat the pants off of a TS9.

Joyo Ultimate Drive. I've got other more expensive overdrives on my board that I feel obliged to use, but I can't bring myself to remove the Joyo because it just sounds so good!

Electro-Harmonix Small Clone.

Affordable, but sounds infinitely better than most chorus pedals, even the ones costing 2 or 3 times more. Sold an MXR M134 Stereo Chorus to buy the Small Clone after trying one and noticing how good it sounds.

My Waterfall sounds better.
I've tried dozens of chorus pedals, and the Waterfall is the best one I've ever tried.

It also costs more than 3 times the price of a Small Clone (£219 vs. £61).
And it sounds different than the Small Clone, not necessarily better. IMHO, it's overpriced as hell.

FYI, the best chorus i've ever tried was the aNaLoG.MaN Bi-Chorus/Mini Chorus.

But all of this (including your post) is completely irrelevant to this thread.

that is true. I doubt you'd be expecting less than what you got for 219 pounds.

actually, I'm now considering of creating a new thread called Expensive things that didn't get the job done the way you expected!

I have an Ibanez TS-5 that I've just always had, no idea where I aquired it but they go for about 30 bucks on eBay (or did) and I think they sound better than ts9's to my ears.

I've boosted so many amps with it and it always does a great job. The switch doesn't always latch unless you hit it near the bottom though which is a common problem with them.
