OK, we all have it...GAS. So what's killing you right now? What pedal is digging away at your brain, slowly eroding your rational wallet control and common sense? Post 'em up and share the pain! :D

First up, the Mojo Hand Rook. Yes, another dirt pedal, but the interesting thing about this demo video is that the guy is playing P-90s thru a Hi Watt combo and the results sound eerily close to my SE One thru the Super Dallas and the Kalamazoo. :blink: Scary close.

Right now it is the Majik Box Rocket Fuel Doug Aldrich pedal and some kind of EQ pedal.

Nothing specific.

I need some new pedals as a couple are on their last legs but there's nothing that leaps out at me right now.

I am on a TC Electronic kick, so at this moment I have severje GAS pains for a Mojo Mojo Overdrive...

They hooked me hardcore when I picked up a Flashback X4. The honeymoon phase is over and I'm still convinced its the best Delay box I have ever played.

I think the Mojo Mojo will pair well with my Sweet 16 and take it right to the brink before crunch becomes distortion...

I have been hunting for the right modulation pedal forever it seems.

After a rotovibe which was too bulky and ate through the batteries, I had a Lovepedal vibe, which was cool, but way too extreme, and with only one knob there was no way to dial it back.

I briefly had a Line 6 M9 and it had this ring modulation setting that sounded soooooo cooool. However, the pedal itself didn't work for me with my size 14s, the buttons were too close together. I sing and play at the same time and need to be able to ballpark it.

So, then I bought a boss PH-3 phase shifter. Sounded great straight into the amp, but lousy in the FX loop which is where I would want to put it.

Still looking.

Adrenalinn III by Roger Linn Designs: Amazing pedal with beat-synced filter and sequencer effects. Used by John Mayer on Bigger Than My Body and Heartbreak Warfare.

Goatkeeper by Lightfoot Labs: Pattern trem effects with 4 beat sequencer and LFO output. Pure sickness.

Have you tried the Strymon Mobius? I've had it for about a month and it is pretty incredible. Amazing chorus, rotary, and destroyer patches.
Here's a decent demo.

I'm pretty set but I'd like to have a Rotary Simulator of some sort - Strymond LEX is interesting but very pricey.

Of late, one of my "go to" Pedals - Keeley Mod Boss Blues Driver has gotten noisy, so I may replace it. I'm pretty interested in the Catalinbread "Dirty Little Secret III". Here's a good demo:

I dig Andy's vids.
As of late, all of his vids have been guitar lessons and demoing the pedals they sell at Pro Guitar Shop.

And I'm LOVING those lessons. I always seem to pick up a detail or two from him - even if I knew the song. I've been playing "Rock and Roll" for a while. Learned it from the album - I'll be learning that "Live" Lick tonight! :D

Pretty interesting that they use a Fender DRRI as the baseline amp for all the demos! They shot one video of Andy standing by a Marshall rig while demoing the "DLS III" and there were a bunch of comments "big deal, pedal played thru a Marshall sounds like a Marshall" - then they pointed out that was just the VISUAL - the recorded track was DRRI! :D

The Dirty Little Secret, the Echorec, and a Timmy is what I'm gassing for.

I'm good (for the moment). I just got a G-System which has my fx and switching needs sorted.

It does have 3 fx loops in it though, and they encourage to try different pedals in there. Maybe later I'll try some boutiquey "enhancer" type pedals...

I seen in this thread a couple of folks looking for the right rotovibe pedal. I strongly recommend the Hughes and Kettner Rotosphere. Having owned a Fender Vibratone ( which was licensed under Leslie) the H&K is as real as it gets. I was tired of lugging around the Fender/Leslie and started trying all sorts of vibe pedals, knowing full good and well that nothing beats the real thing. The H&K is the best and is as close if not spot on to the real things as it gets. You can pick them up used for 300.00. New for 550.00. No gimmicks, straight up leslie tone!

I am all gassed up, do not really have any desire for anymore at this time.
Here is my current lineup.
Of all of them, the Flashback X4 and the Whammy are my faves.
I like using the octave below setting on the Whammy so when I play notes it adds in a note one octave below too.

The TC John Petrucci Dreamscape pedal is pretty cool too, it has chorus, tremolo, flanger, ect.

Hope these vids give you great amounts of GAS :D

There are quite a few Flashback vids, but this guy goes into detail which each position of the knobs do.
He has three videos, parts one, two , and three below.
