    After 24 years of playing I am finally getting into the gear game.  Just upgraded my amp with a nice marshall (big shout out to @gimmesometruth27 for educating me)  and will be eventually looking into pedals.  What is everyone's top 3 of essential pedals?  Thanks so much guys!!!

    Nice! I don't use a ton of pedals, but these are the 3 I use the most:
    Digitech DigiDelay (loop building, several other delay settings---reverse delay is my favorite)
    Digitech Element XP (Multiple effects, amp settings, wah)
    Outlaw Dead Man's Hand (simple, but effective, overdrive pedal)

    I think my next project after the Tele build will be to build a good pedal box/board that's easy to transport.
    I LOVE MUSIC.

    I love the DigiDelay. I used to gig with it when I lived in the UK. I have a Boss DD20 now, which has a lot of bells and whistles, but the DigiDelay has so much for a compact pedal. I agree that the reverse delay function is wonderful. There are some glitch and sort-of-Freeze effects that can be achieved from the DigiDelay with a bit of experimentation.

    That Vick Audio Violet Ram's Head is new and I'm really digging it. Switchable mids make a world of difference in a Big Muff circuit.

    Vick is great stuff but Stomp Under Foot it’s where it’s at for boutique Muffs imo. Buying new I might opt for a Vick, but used prices are pretty comparable.

    I totally agree except that I couldn't find a SUF Muff clone with a mids switch. That has been my issue with Big Muffs in the past. Sounds great playing alone, disappears when other instruments come in.

    Other people don't seem to have that problem as I've heard Muffs sound glorious when other people use them. When I've had them in the past, I just couldn't make it work. 

    This fixes that.

    Absolutely, gotta play them fucking loud!! Or play music that is arranged for it. Either have plenty of space or be going for a full band fuzz dozer approach.

    While not really a pedal exactly, this is a pretty old school multi-effects unit with drum sounds. 

    Made in the 1960's by Gibson/Maestro.

    This one belongs to a friend of mine. I'm cleaning and testing it for him. So far, no electronic issues. That's pretty rare for something of this vintage.

    (Sorry for the upside down pics. Can't seem to fix that on my phone.)
    Nice. Hendrix had one of these: it's possible that he used it on his studio version of the Star Spangled Banner at the Record Plant on March 18th, 1969.



    Crazy. I'd never heard reference to a studio version of this, so I found the link. Totally trippy.
