No, me needer!

I have a small SS P/A amp I take with me unless I'm sure there's a P/A to plug into. That's what I use for loud playing when Riverette's out of the house too. The X3 Live plugs into the back of the P/A and I'm set.

Favorite effect? Overdrive.

Favorite pedal? Gosh. I can't help but give the nod to the 'ol 808 Tubescreamer. I feel guilty when I don't put it on my board. It just seems so endlessly useful, and you can always dial in a good tone.

The Electro Harmonix Big Muff! Personally, I prefer my 77' V3, but am content with any version. 2nd and 3rd are tied. My mid 70's Roland AF60 Beegee and 77' MXR script Phase 45. blah, blah, blah...desert island...those three for me!

Big Muff Pi American is great, and my boss ce3 chorus pedal sounds pretty good in stereo. Other than that the treble boost on my amp is great.

MXR Black Label Chorus. It turns an OD'd amp into beautiful chaos and a clean sound into just beautiful!

Fuzz. Not the most usufull for all applications but definitely my favorite.
Currently smitten with tonebenders but the MUFF is always the #1 pedal to step on when its time for destruction!

ProCo Rat or any variation/clone, etc. Usually run a TS type pedal before it and stack em when I wanna get really heavy. Suhr Riot distortion has been floatin my boat lately as well.

That pedal looks sweet. I'll have to check YouTube for sound samples. MXR pedals are slowly taking over my board.

YouTube - MXR ZW38 Black Label Chorus Pedal Demo

It's an awesome pedal, it turns your tone to liquid and is incredibly versatile! Not to mention it looks badass next to the ZW OD. All those Bullseyes :shock:
It runs even smoother with the BBE Sonic Stomp. If money wasn't an issue my whole board would be MXR apart from the BBE. :thumb:
