    My first was a Boss DS-1. Later I exchanged it for VS Garagetone Overdrive.

    Limited Edition Crybaby. It was a gift from my dad for my 16th B-Day.

    I've only used it once or twice in the past 16 years.

    Not my first effect ever, but I found my original script logo MXR dist+ in the backstage area of a bar where the guy had just told us we weren't getting paid.
    I did...

    Boss Distortion. Didn't want it but it's what I got when I asked for an effects pedal for Christmas years ago. Since then we have bonded and created some dirty, crunchy tones.

    A homemade Distortion box that would clip on to my guitar strap. It was an effect that was always on cuz it didnt have an off and on switch. my tech buddy made a few for all of his friends. It was cool, and sounded good. wish I still had it.
