Welcome to Ask MusicRadar, a section devoted entirely to you - the all-knowing, gear-buying, gear-playing and all-round gear-loving community. This week we're asking: what's the one stompbox you can't live without?
Just imagine you could only use one pedal for the rest of your life… what would you choose? Whether it's distortion, fuzz, overdrive, chorus, reverb, wah-wah, phaser or whatever - if it's an essential part of your music-making arsenal, we want to know.
What to do know
Get involved! Choose your favourite pedal (no multi-fx units please - let's save that for another question!) and share your suggestion (tell us the make and model), and reasons why, like this:
- Via MusicRadar (log in and leave a comment below with a link as usual)
- Via Twitter (follow @musicradar and tag your submission with #askmusicradar)
- Via Facebook (become a fan at http://facebook.com/musicradar and post suggestions on our wall)
- Or via firstname.lastname@example.org (just send an email the old-fashioned way)
Once we've got all your nominations, we'll create a shortlist, a poll and finally your definitive list of essential stompboxes every player should own.
