If you only had 3 pedals...

Post by Itchard » December 15th, 2006, 3:34 pm

What would they be? I'm talking stompboxes here rather than like..."station" pedals. I guess Whammys are allowed...

For me:
  • Overdrive
  • Vox-Wah
  • Chorus
I'd probably take either the Boss or Digitech Overdrive/Chorus pedals....but you don't necessarily have to be specific.

Assuming I have a decent amp with a proper reverb:

... ?

Actually I do have three for my guitar too
Tube Screamer
and,erh...some kind of dirstortion

But I don't use neither of them a lot. It's kinda my intention to be better at playing first before I experiment too much with sound. IMO, pedals may make me sound better than I am - I'm not interested in that. Practice first. Pedal bonus later. But that's just me

...only thing I know how to do is to keep on keepin' on...

I don't have any pedals at all, so I can't really say for sure as I don't have the experience of owning them. But I have some ideas...

A Wah Wah, for sure.

Fuzz box of some sort.

A looper pedal. I'm getting one for X-mas and I know I'm going to love it!

A tremelo would be cool to, but those top three are the essentials for me at the moment.
