The Fender Blender and the 680 are the only pedals I really use anymore. My sherman filter2 get used...but for pedals, these are the workhorses.

Digitech Echo-Plus, Boss Turbo Overdrive and Phase Shifter, and the DOD FX-17 Filter-Wah are my current favs.

i loved the DD-6 i had for a short while, and, though it's not a pedal, i adore my Ibanez AD100 for its warm and downright dirty delay. sometimes i just plug something in and play just to hear it time-warped back to the tape (-prevalent) days.

EH SMALL STONE

best phaser ever... put the color on, set the rate to very slow, feed it with a true analog pad and... breath the "OXYGENE" coming out...


BBE Sonic Stomp

not so "vintage" but plugged in the "filter in" of the Moog Voyager gives more punch... Can you image more punch on a minimoog sounds? well it does. Amazing stomp.

Hoping it can do some crazy pitch-shifting and harmonies.

Ibanez AD80 - Lovely, analog and shitty delay
Ibanez DE7 - Lovely cheap delay with analog sound. Got a digital mode as well. Too bad it lacks tap-tempo.

Ibanez SD9 - Sonic distortion that works great on synthesizers as well as guitar. Check it out!

Another vote for the Metasonics TM1 and the sonic alienator. Also the EH flanger hoax - and recently I treated myself to the digitech 'expression factory?' not sure of the name (I'm at work). Anyway recreates some classic old pedals and adds various distortions too. Very pleased with this and real good value.

Electro Harmonix Big Muff [bought new in 1979]
Dunlop Crybaby Wah [bought used in 1980]
Ibanez TS-808 [bought used before it became a much sought-after vintage piece]

These have all been longtime favourites. I've used the Big Muff and TS-808 with synths. The Big Muff did an amazing job dirtying and warming up leads when I had a SH201. It has a unique distortion/compression/overdrive sound that I've never heard from another effect unit. It's probably my favourite all-time pedal.
