Bogner Amplification Ecstasy Blue

  • 9
  • Positive: Based on the 'Blue' channel of the famous Bogner amp - do I need to say more?! It's awesome, of course!
  • Negative: If the boost could be used independently of the OD, this one would be a perfect 10

Boss LS-2 Line Selector

  • 9
  • Positive: Very, very versatile - I wish I had more of them! :)

Boss PS-6 Harmonist

  • 7
  • Positive: Many useable functions, incl the S-bend/whammy. Expression pedal input. STEREO outputs!
  • Negative: The processed signal sounds a bit "artificial" and there's also latency in this signal. With an exp. pedal connected the FX is always ON...

Electro-Harmonix Epitome Multi Effect

  • 9
  • Positive: Three great pedals in one + the 'Shimmer'-mode which let's you create beautiful soundscapes. Stereo in/out, nice colours!

Electro-Harmonix Switchblade+

  • 8
  • Positive: For the price, it's awesome!

Hotone Audio Skyline series Komp

  • 8
  • Positive: Small footprint, sounds good, nice price!

Jim Dunlop Cry Baby GCB-95 Wah Wah

  • 7
  • Positive: The original - and best(?). Still does the job very well. Very sturdy construction.

Molten Voltage Tempode - MIDI Clock Generator

  • 10
  • Positive: Easy to use, does what it should, looks great!

Mooer Audio MSG1 Slow Engine

  • 7
  • Positive: Small footprint, nice price, works great

Paul Cochrane Tim (v.2 probably - it has both the toggle switch for different clipping modes and the FX loop)

  • 9.5
  • Positive: Great sounding transparent overdrive that takes your amp tone and enhances it! Great tone controls(lo/hi cut) + the very useable FX loop
  • Negative: The boost function is always before the overdrive and is not working independently - otherwise it would have been a perfect 10

TC Electronic Flashback Triple Delay

  • 9.5
  • Positive: Sounds great, the parallel/series stacking options, Toneprint slots, stereo in/out + all other functions
  • Negative: Sometimes I wish that the 'MIX' knob would work as a mix knob between dry/fx signal, not just as fx level w/ dry signal always at unity gain

TC Electronic PolyTune - Poly-Chromatic Tuner

  • 9
  • Positive: Works great, in every mode/setting. TC quality!

Totally Wycked Audio LD-02 Little Dipper MkII

  • 8
  • Positive: Great sounding, great looking! Very versatile.
  • Negative: The 'Occultation' switch isn't the easiest one to handle; it's small, it's plastic, it's not very well placed

Z. Vex Fuzz Factory

  • 10
  • Positive: Super cool, crazy fuzz pedal! Great design too.
  • Negative: Works best when placed first in the pedal chain

Z. Vex Super-Duper 2-in-1

Dwarfcraft Devices Eau Claire Thunder

  • 6
  • Positive: Nice sounding fuzz, the Feedback switch is pretty cool too
  • Negative: A bit too big, perhaps... Never really got the hang of the Toneblast switch, I think it adds too much volume

Empress Effects Multidrive

  • 7
  • Positive: Great, flexible OD/dist/fuzz where one/two/three FX can be stacked in parallel. Very powerful EQ section.
  • Negative: For _my_ taste, it colours the sound a bit too much.Maybe the OD section should have some sort of tone control on its own.

Fulltone GT-500 Discrete Booster / Distortion (The red one, not the silver one in the picture)

  • 6
  • Positive: Great sounding OD/boost, VERY powerful EQ section, switchable OD/boost --> distortion / distortion --> OD/boost
  • Negative: The distortion channel never really appealed to me... :-/

Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer (Some late 90' reissue, I think...)

  • 5
  • Positive: Nice Kawazaki green color ;), a true classic! :)
  • Negative: Loses too much bottom end when engaged... for my taste, that is.

Sovtek/Electro-Harmonix Small Stone (The black one, a modern re-issue I guess...)

  • 7
  • Positive: Classic phaser, sounds great! Very easy to use. Like the wooden box that comes with it too :)
  • Negative: It's BIG...

Way Huge WHE201 Pork Loin - Soft Clip Injection Overdrive

  • 7
  • Positive: Nice sounding, great looking OD. I really like the option to mix in the clean signal as well.
  • Negative: Perhaps too "nice"-sounding to cut trough mix...?
