There are tons of effects around this studio including two vintage Maestro Echoplex EP-3 units. The pedals are always multiplying and being swapped out but some of my favorites around here are from Caroline Guitar Company, Spiral Electric FX, Chase Bliss Audio, Red Panda, Analogman, MXR, Boss, Strymon, ProCo, etc.
