A Nady tube overdrive that my dad bought me in the early 80's.
My first pedal was a Roland fuzz wah. Hey, two pedals for the price of one, how can you go wrong. But it wasn't very good at either. Traded somewhere along the way.
I used it into a Peavey 120watt 212 Classic - that I'm sure I never heard the power tubes clip on. I would roll my guitar down to about 2 for cleanish stuff and up to ten for solo's and mayhem. It did teach me about using the guitar's volume control, though.
It was probably a Boss Chorus that I bought used.
They're worth something now. A buddy of mine has been lusting for one.
I suspected as much. Of course, long gone. I hope I just didn't lose it or leave it somewhere. LOL
The good news is I still have this. Probably the second pedal I ever bought:
This one. I later moded it with the vintage chip and some resistor changes. Still use it.https://medias.audiofanzine.com/images/normal/ibanez-ts5-tube-screamer-655260.jpg
My first pedal was a Ross Compressor... I play bass so this was the obvious pick ! Still have it, still use it , and will never let it go !
Crybaby bought at a store in Markham back in about 1973. Last seen in about 1998 when my mom was using it to hold the kitchen door open. Might still have it in a box somewhere; need to have a look some day.
Mine was a Denzo Distortion which was DS1 Clone, I got it in '89. It's the 2nd pedal from the right in the front row. This pedalboard was also the first one I had which I used in the 90s and early 2000's.
Think I also had an OS-2, bought it at Kitt's Music in Ville St. Laurent (north end of Montreal) 20+ years ago. That was a cool little store, always enjoyed going in there.
First pedal for me was a real tube overdrive, paid $99 for it in 90's.
The Double Beat is a terrific fuzz. I've built two clones of it. The stock has a 3-position switch that lets you filter the fuzz in three different ways (it does NOT produce the waveforms shown). I extended mine to include 3 additional distinct filters, since I had 3 positions left on the rotary switch.
It was a crybaby i got for xmas in about '92 or '93
Mine was an Ibanez Mostortion. The main reason I bought it was because one of the guitar magazines had a "You Can Win Steve Vai's Rig" contest and that was the pedal they were including. I was a huge fan of his at the time and the pedal was the only thing I could afford in the rig, so I bought that. I don't think I ever saw him using one though (LOL).
I was a really good sounding pedal but I ended up selling it when I started my 'everything must be true bypass' phase. In hindsight I should have just had it rehoused and had the switch changed out (I've seen a few that have had that mod, so it is possible). They're a bit of a hidden gem, and a few Nashville guitarists use and speak highly of them. I sold mine a couple of years ago for $100, but they go for over $300 now. Ooops...
My first pedal was a Roland Bee Baa that I purchased in the summer of '76.
That was followed shortly thereafter by a phase shifter and a wah pedal. I don't recall the make of the phase shifter other than it was blue, the wah was likely a Dunlop. The phase shifter and wah were traded for something a year or so later.
The Bee Baa was not working and I had it in storage until a few years ago when it finally went to recycling ...
