Im not 100% sure, I am sure it was a Boss, maybe a Blues Driver, maybe a delay... been so long.
Mine were DOD Supra Distortion and a DOD Meat Box. The Meat Box was supposed to be a bass pedal (sub-harmonic processor) but I liked the sound of it on my strat so much that it got used for the strat as much or more than it did for my jazz bass. Then I sold it s few years back for more than ten times what I paid for it new when I was in college. I might have to get another one.
This guy right here. Was on clearance for $20 at the local music shop. They were heavily invested in the HW series at one point and decided to drop the line.
Didn't know anything about effects at the time, other than that most rock guitarists used some sort of "OD", and the price was right. Used it at first into a Mustang amp. I know the amp would do most of what the pedal would, but I was starting to shop for a tube amp, and wanted to get a feel for running effects outside the amp.
Ended up being a great buy. I've tried a bunch of other ODs, and haven't found anything I'd want to replace it with yet.
And, now that I've got several other pedals, and even built a couple, I've come to realize this HardWire pedal is exceptionally well built. The whole line seems to be what you would expect if Roland turned over production of Boss pedals to a Russian tractor factory.
Fuzz Face, followed by a Schaller Wah, then a pedal I can't remember the name of (Lift-Off?), by Paice, that sent whatever note you played a couple of octaves higher, like a pinched harmonic. I haven't used pedals for about 40 years now!
Original Ibanez Tube Screamer TS9. Here it is:

Still own it.
The Analog Man website offers interesting historical tidbits and technical details about Tube Screamers. I may get his True Vintage mod, though this stock c.1992 pedal sounds pretty good as is.
My first pedals were the boss oc-3 and dd-2.
Now THAT is a first pedal...I got one of those given to me (and threw it away)...My first bought pedal was MXR Phase 90 followed closely by MXR DynaComp around 1976.
I knew that Carlos Santana used compression and thought that Jimi Hendix used a phaser...Did not know what a UniVibe was at the time but couldn't have afforded it anyways.
The only pedal I ever had until 2015 was a Tube Works Real Tube Overdrive. Wish I still had it. I replaced it with a Tube Screamer TS 808 and a recently added a looper.
I am considering the same upgrade after a few months with the RC-1
I like my RC-3 much better.
I had the Dean Markley Overlord, which I understand is probably some kind of RTO-alike, in the loop of my Boss Me-5 and into a Marshall as my rig for 4 or 5 years. While it wasn't perfect I got a lot done with that setup and like you I regret selling mine!
Still have it, DOD FX50-B Overdrive Plus, bought in 1989 if I remember correctly. Bought it with my Mako Piranha amp and Ibanez RG340.
Not exactly pedals but the first effects I acquired were a Copicat and a Rangemaster. Stolen in 1980 along with my Ric 330 and an HH 100 amp. My first stomp box was probably an Ibanez DL10 delay, still in occasional use today.
Omg, that's so old I'm loving them.
My first pedal was a Zoom 707II. Really enjoyed playing around in highschool with it. My first analog pedal was an Artec Blues Overdrive. My first nice pedal was my Boss SD1.
i was trying to learn jeff beck and hendrix,
and this was required.
i'll always have a wah on my pedalboard,
it's like a second voice to me.
Funny enough, I don't own a single pedal today. But I used to have a bunch, and I think my first was this.
Yeah. An overdrive and a wah is needful for me
Same day, sometime in 2003, probably Wednesday...
Cry Baby Wah ... 1973
