Washburn distortion I should have kept... I didn't like it at the time. I still have my RAT!
EHX Soul Food. Surprised nobody has mentioned this one yet.
I think it was this...
I wish i still had it. It was kinda fun. I give it 2 Cloven Hooves up...
Started playing late in life (2009). Bought a Digitech Bad Monkey in 2012, followed closely by a KORG Pitch Black tuner pedal.
Bought my 3rd pedal this week. Will post about it shortly.
Boss Blues Driver. It sounded great but I sold it because I'm a moron. But I guess in the end it's not that big of a deal, the only pedal I use consistently is my Xotic EP Booster anyway.
Mine was a Boss RC-1 but I quickly upgraded to an RC-3

Then I was given a Blues Driver w/Keeley mod by the awesome @tommytele
Worthy upgrade manson? I'm still happy with my RC-1 but TBH I'm getting to the point where i could do with storing a few home made backing tracks, it just saves time.............
My second pedal was a DS-1, so i nearly fit in here!
First I ever used was a pearl FG-01 flanger though. And then a Marshall mk1 drivemaster. Gigged with both, they were borrowed though.
Early 80s Electra distortion. Very harsh distortion (or maybe I just did not know how to use it). Sounded much better with a bass so I gave it to my bass playing buddy. Wish I kept it as these vintage Japan pedals seem to be sought after these days.
I'm glad I upgraded. The RC-3 has a rhythm/drum simulator that I use sometimes and I use the pedal for the challenges: downloading backing track, overdubbing my submissions and liading them up into iTunes. But there are other ways to achieve the same thing, of course.
An original small-box RAT was my 2nd effect I ever bought. Got it new for $65 a/I/r, and sold it so some player in Spain a few years ago for $125.
Interesting food for thought- thanks for that
Early 70's, pretty sure my first pedal was a Foxx Tone machine (red fuzz on the outside)....such a cool pedal. I may have overused it, because my friends started calling me "Uncle Fuzz".
A Gibson Maestro Fuzz Tone. Bought it right after I heard Satisfaction and found out that's what Keith used.
Maybe one of the most underrated overdrives of all time, the Boss OD-3. Still have it. Still use it.
I bought a used Cry Baby wah when I first played guitar when I was 12. I gave it to my best friend in high school since I had stopped playing and didn't need it. A few months ago I visited him and after we jammed he gave it back to me.
My first ever pedal was an Ibanez PT-3 Powertrio, excellent warm analog-ish delay for a digital effect, i highly recommend it, however i gave it to a friend awhile ago...i used it for the repeats in this song:
My first pedal was a yellow MXR distortion, which I got in '81. Around the same time, I bought a Dunlop Crybaby and a DoD Flanger. I believe that these were the only pedals that I owned at any time during the 80s. I don't have any of them now.
My first pedal was an Ibanez TS9 then a year later I got a Boss BD3 my board is still growing
