    Started with a Guv'nor and some no name compressor, Moved up to an HM-2, Then obviously an MT-2, Then the future arrived:

    After that I found that a Tubescreamer in front of a JCM900 suited my playing better

    I still have my original ART Xtreme+ multiFX pedal. It actually sounded pretty cool for what it was.

    This guy has the non-plus version. I can't even tell you the difference without going to look at my pedal

    My first pedal was a digitech death metal pedal. Not sure what year it was but it has one gain setting. 11.

    When you wanted to buy an ART SGX multi-effect processor with the foot pedal but couldn't afford it. You end up buying this instead:

    I owned the prior generation of that amp, Crate GX-15R, I think... While it was hardly awesome sounding, remember how shitty small pracxtice amps sounded before that. It was at least usable.
    Yeah, you couldn't get a good sounding practice amp to save your life. I remember wanting one of these:

    just so I could jam at 4am and not either a) blow the roommates out of the house and b) not have a sound that made me want to blow my brains out.

I was still using it when I started to go the individual pedal route until I had enough pedals to phase this out.

    I can't remember what happened to mine, I think I left it at my friend's house.

    I had several of these terrible things, including the Korg G3 (it really was awful) and an Ibanez Soundtank!

    I wrote a little blog about it recently: Steve's Gear History :: Fireland ... No need to read it, just look at the pics.
