Fuck Yeah Effects Pedals!
This blog was made with the intention to answer people's pedal questions and spread what knowledge I've gained from my many years of buying, selling, and trading guitar gear. I am here to help you find your tone and also here to try and tear down the wall of hype the internet generates. At least a little bit. *Listen to your ears, not the forums*

Anonymous: kill-fuck-marry: PGS Andy, Dennis Kayzer, that ambient nigga Curtis Kent.

This is too easy. 

Gotta marry PGS Andy, he seems like a dude that’ll treat me right and he has job security I’m sure. 

Gonna have to fuck Kayzer, so mysterious and that heavy wankage on videos like the Okko Dom and the Seventheaven are too much. 

Kill Curtis Kent. No particular reason. Just not as exciting. Also, he’s an ambient guy? I wasn’t aware. :shrug:

paulwhoisadad: The Ibanez DE-7 was my favorite digital delay for years. I've been meaning to ask this for a while now, but have you had a chance to try out the Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail?

No actually. It looks pretty neat. I’mma try to source one to try out.

Got a DD-20 this past weekend, thanks @adamxdasilva

John’s board is pretty. And in like 3 days it’s about to be SO pretty.

Anonymous: How do you feel about the Marshall echohead delay? People in forums either call it shit or one of the most underrated delays of all time. For $65 it seems like it would be a steal.

I wouldn’t call it a steal. But it’s not total shit. My go-to $60 delay is the DE-7 though.

2-mil: do you know of any cool dark-sounding overdrives that i could use with a thick distortion to get to sludgy model t territory besides the fuzzrocious dark driving (im on a pretty tight budget)

Tight budgets are rough. What are we talking? There are a lot of builders on forums that could probably whip something together for way cheaper than buying something from a shop and it could do what you want. Ya know?

blues-for-the-red-sunn: Have you ever tried an EQD Depths before? It sounds cool from what I hear in the demos but I'm not sure if it can nail the more basic Uni-Vibe sounds...

I haven’t yet. It sounds like it’d be real good though. I can’t imagine it’d be incapable of those sounds, but if you want tradition univibe type sounds there are probably better options for pedals that are trying to be univibe sounds from the golden days. Nahmean?

resincult: sup man! looking to snag another fuzz real soon as well as another OD, so I was hoping for your opinion on a few things... Lunar Module Deluxe (cheaaap), Fuzz War or stick with a Musket? do you have any preference over germ or silicone trannies? also, what do you think about Death By Audio's OD and other fuzz/distortion boxes? does their Interstellar OD sound as nice as their demos make em out to be? playing a bunch of gazey stuff while dipping into drone/noise territories for what it's worth

If you can get a Lunar Module Deluxe cheap, it’d probably be worth checking out. If you are looking for the Fuzz War to replace the Musket, don’t. If you want a second fuzz, I think the Fuzz War fills some holes the Musket doesn’t do as well as other sounds. So if you’re a fuzz addict it doesn’t hurt having more. Ya know? Just don’t replace the Musket. 

As for DBA’s stuff. I had an Interstellar overdriver for a while. I loved it through my Sunn Model T RI, but I hated it through my Traynor YBA-1. Sounds really thin and what not. So it reacts a lot differently with amps, as many do. But it certainly works for noisy rock styles. I definitely think there are better overdrives out there for the money, at the same time though. So if you really want the Interstellar find one used.

If you haven’t checked out the EHX Soul Food, that’s worth a look (especially if you can get a bass knob added to it.) Added fun for changing some diodes out with that one as well. There are a handful of dope EQD drives that could fill your OD spot too. This kind of stuff is definitely not easy to scout out for, but just look into some more stuff.

inappropriatethoughts: General question, just curious: I'm wanting to buy a boss re20 space echo delay. I already have a boss dd20, but due to finances, etc., if i get the space echo, I'd have to sell the dd20, which i wouldn't want to lose for a variety of reasons. Could you compare/contrast the two, and give me an idea on what I should stay with?

I honestly don’t like the tone of any reverb setting on that thing, and the warping sounds really fake so I hated both RE-20s I had. I would never sell a DD-20 for an RE-20. Straight up. So if that’s the only way you can get one right now, pass on it. 

Though, if you can try one with your rig before you sell the DD-20… Try it. But don’t lose a great delay for what I think is kind of a delay with niche uses.

Anonymous: Best lower cost tube combos? Like classic 30's, blues juniors, vox ac-something kind of thing Amp noob Playing emo/lighter punk/indie shit. Jaguar through a bunch of pedals, don't need amp gain, clean headroom when keeping up with an average drummer needed

Out of what you named I am definitely partial to the Classic 30. I really do love those amps. They sound good and are a hell of a pedal platform. If you want the headroom I wouldn’t go much under 30 watts or so. Even then, I’d prefer 50+ for just a clean amp. 
What exactly is your budget?

Found this Boss Chorus Ensemble CE-1 in the garage the other among other of my dad’s relics of old.
Not sure what you opinion on this is, but I’m digging the tremolo on this geezer. Any tips for getting maximum use from this. 
(I’m new to world of effects pedals, any help would be greatly appreciated)
Thanks :D

DUDE!!! You understand how fucking nuts it is that you just found this in a garage, I hope???
These are a pretty big goddamn deal. hahaha. 
Very cool, man. As for maximizing use, that’s pretty much on the user. I’m super goddamn jealous though. Scoop any other neat things?
