  1. I’ve always been a big fan of the Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer (“Screamer” for this iStomp). It’s a classic.

  2. Favorite effect would have to be Tremolo! Hands down.

  3. Flanger!

  4. Keeley Katana

  5. Be Quiet Mt. Heart Attack!

  6. delay is quite fun to play with.

  7. Rub a dub …Delay.

  8. Analog Delays all the way, preferably one with a lot of options to get even more out of it.

  9. Boss DD-6 no doubt!

  10. Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi

  11. My favorite effect has to be Reverb!

  12. Distortion. Lots and lots of distortion. Preferrably a Boss DS-1 if from a pedal.

  13. Electro Harmonix Memory Man!

  14. ZVEX Fuzz Factory


    I’m gonna make a My Bloody Valentine album one day

  16. My current fav is the Catalinbread Heliotrope.

  17. Boss Loop Station

  18. My electro harmonix freeze pedal! Works wonders!

  19. The classic cry baby wah wah. Awesome.

  20. trem + delay at the same time is delicious

  21. i tend to just use fuzz, but flanger can be fun for some crazy effects.

  22. Fuzzy reverby delay, the sound of a generation.

  23. Chorus, sounds sweet everywhere!

  24. Octave generation is what it’s all about, I want my notes doubled in at least three registers.

  25. Reverb + looper


  27. Analog delay all the way baby

  28. Favorite effect-laden song: “Te Amo” by Atlas Sound

    Here’s what I’m talkin bout…

    Although perhaps this is a bit ill-timed considering recent events in Minneapolis…

  29. where do I start? awesome! delay distortion its all good!

  30. doubling up on delay with some modulation (phaser?) makes the whole thing sound totally oceanic and insane. “Alison” by Slowdive is a really good implementation of the two-delay sound.

  31. strymon makes this awesome pedal that digitally models tape delay. el capistan. they sound great!

  32. delay-ay-ay-ay
    or pitch shift maybe

  33. Line 6 DL4. Best effects-heavy song is probably “Drilling” by Minus the Bear, most of the song is a series of DL4 loops sped up and played backwards.

  34. blues driver. duh.

  35. definitely blues driver!

  36. Love a good analog delay.

  37. i had a longstanding affair with one of those line 6 pods a while back, i really liked the tweed blues effect on there

  38. Electro-Harmonix Big Muff

  39. Boss DD-7 Digital Delay

  40. give me a wide open room and miles of reverb
