I've had a EH Holy Grail (best reverb out there).  Plus I've had a Ibanez PH7 Phaser (not so good), dunlop crybaby gcb-95, Digitech RP-350, Digitech RP-500, and a Digitech Bad Monkey.  I have a Line 6 Pocket Pod now. Nothing else.  My new amp has a footswitch, so I can change up the tones as needed.  I've also found the controls of the guitar can do a lot too.

So I'm back to having almost nothing, but I do have a Boss ST-2 power stack and a Boss TU-15 tuner running into my Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb (clone).

boss frv-1, boss rc-2, flanger, ds-1, dd-5, tu-3

in a fit of nostalgia, i bought a fuzz face (a used base model, not an endorsee added cost one)

morley bad horsie wah

the looper and reverb are the most used pedals, and probably most useful overall

Now I've added a Delta Labs DD1 delay for lead tones.

Its not going to give me any U2's Edge delay, but for a hard rock and screamin' blues lead, its killer.  (not to mention cheap!)

I agree, but for the price it's a decent pedal. I use an MXR Carbon Copy, and a Boss DD-3. Love 'em.

I was trying to find a decent price on a MXR and Boss DD-3.  But I had a 10% off any item $49.  The DD1 was $59, so I got it for $52 out the door.

I picked up a Rothwell Tornado overdrive pedal last week end, not used it in anger yet, but at home practice levels it sounds great. Got a pedal train pedal board the other day with the aim of slowly getting a quality set up. The DD3 is next on my list, seen loads on E bay that are not a bad price, with the economic situation there are some good bargains to be had.
Going to need a Wah, but undecided on make yet, suggestions welcome and wanted.

i have a morley bad horsie II that i like. it's the only wah i've ever owned, although i did play with that fender 'wah/fuzz' unit once. dint appeal to me-complexity, strange foot movement required (reminds me of stomping out a cigarette when in range country), fuzz wasn't very aggressive.

Your better off looking on Guitar Center's used gear site.  I've bought several used items from them only to turn a profit by selling it on Ebay.

What Pedals?

I'm afraid I had to go and look as I couldn't remember them all - that's not good.  :(

Used a lot:-
Artec Blues Overdrive
EHX Nano Holy Grail Reverb (second hand)
Boss FBM-1 Bassman (ex demo)
Vox Tonelab LE (second hand)
Marshall ED-1 Compressor

Korg Pandora Mini (used if playing an electric guitar when an amp or the PC aren't convenient)

Used Occasionally:-
EHX Voicebox (second hand)
Marshall Bluesbreaker Pedal (second hand)
Guitar Tech Active Volume Pedal
Akai Headrush Looper / Echo / Delay

Backup:-
Vox Tonelab ST (the LE effectively replaced it)

I don't want to think about the number of pedals that I've had then sold (or guitars for that matter)  ::) but at least I now have the sense to buy a lot of them used so I can sell on without a big drop in price.

Yes thought about that. but the postage to the UK on top can be expensive and not quite sure about the import duty, I've been stung before on a few items!

Sorry about that.  I keep forgetting there are many members here that are not in the U.S.

Boss ME 70 - actually wanted the GT 8 but my budget was a bit lower - and I liked the manual adjustments via all those knobs and buttons on the me70.

After having it for 3 weeks I am quite satisfied...
