Boss SY-300 Guitar Synthesizer

  • Positive: Great tracking, super versatile and easy to navigate. Some really interesting sounds, and very authentic tone overall.
  • Negative: Can be harsh and digital sounding when utilising some waveforms.

Eventide PitchFactor Harmonizer

  • Positive: Eventide doing what they do best - solid tracking, very versatile parameter control, superb sounds.
  • Negative: Not cheap but you get what you pay for...

Infanem Second Voice Deluxe

  • Positive: Incredible versatile harmony and sub octave fuzz. Includes gate control and 4 CV inputs. Great with guitars, bass, synths/drum machines
  • Negative: Nothing particular of note

Korg SDD-3000 Pedal - Programmable Digital Delay

  • Positive: Some of the best sounding digital delay effects I've heard, all in one box. Good level of control and some interestic non-traditional delays
  • Negative: Not midi clock-able. Must have a preset set up and send midi notes to that trigger that preset.

Lateral Sound Root - Dual Distortion & Overdrive

  • Positive: Most versatile drive I've owned. From vintage to stacked, scooped to fat, this pedal does all the things.

Malekko Charlie Foxtrot - Peter Holmström Signature Digital Buffer/Granular Pedal

  • Positive: Great fun, cuts up your signal nicely with glitches, repeats and echoes. Managable via CV/Expression.
  • Negative: Unless effect is placed in 'random' mode, effect can be a little one dimensional. Random allows for different types and lengths of glitch

Mid-Fi Electronics Pitch Pirate

  • Positive: Weird little vibrato which can go from a bit of wow and flutter, to all out whale song.
  • Negative: Great sounds, but could do with more sensitivity in the mix, as dry signal gets a bit lost at times.

Montreal Assembly Count to 5 (Revision J)

  • Positive: Deceptively impressive looper. Loops signal at multiple speeds and intervals, which can be controlled by knobs or CV clock.
  • Negative: Could do with an extra switch to turn on/off the different loop speeds.

Moog Moogerfooger MF-101 Lowpass Filter

  • Positive: Not usually a wah/filter user, however, the Moog Low Pass Filter is a great addition to analog mono bass synths and guitars. Warm and fat.
  • Negative: Drive circuit is active even when pedal is in bypass

Moog Moogerfooger MF-102 Ring Modulator

  • Positive: Having gone through almost every ring modulator available to me, I ended up with the Moog. Sounds fatter and more articulate than most.
  • Negative: Drive circuit is active even when pedal is in bypass

Moog Moogerfooger MF-103 12-Stage Phaser

  • Positive: Chunky sounding phaser (not washy) sounds great with drum machines and synths. Also good on guitar if you like that kinda thing
  • Negative: Drive circuit is active even when pedal is in bypass

MWFX Judder (Mk1 and Mk2)

  • 2x
  • Positive: Changed the way I approach guitar playing. Brilliant infinite momentary repeat effect which adds some electronic percussive repeats.
  • Negative: I've broken a few of these...

One Control (designed by BJF) BJF Buffer

  • Positive: Good little buffer, does it's job. Sits conveniently under my pedal board.
  • Negative: Probably doesn't need a switch.

Pigtronix Philosopher King

  • Positive: Best compressor pedal I have used, also has a nice ADR filter which is footswitchable. Multiple CV in/outs make this great with synths.
  • Negative: Reliability - Both I and a former bandmate have had to have one of these repaired.
