    What is your "fun" pedal on your pedalboard? That pedal you don't use all that often but keep it on your board to do something fun or crazy with every once in a while? Mine is my Boss BF-2 Flanger. I don't use it all that much but it's fun to keep on my board for when I get a wild hair up my ass.

    TMI.

    I just got a Boss Fuzz FZ-5 and I'm having a blast using it.
    So many songs I've been playing for years with amp OD or an OD/distortion pedal sound much more like what I've always heard from the original track.

    Same as the OP, I'm not a big coloring effects fan so there's noting crazy on my pedalfloor, but when I get an itch for something "fun", this one satisfies the moment.

    TC Flashback 2x4. Just tapping into whats possible with it. Some of the presets are insane. Just wish it wasnt so huge.

    Those crazy reverbs in my Helix. In my real amp rig i hardly ever use reverb. If i do it's basic so it's fun to get all those synth overtones going.

    The "fun" pedal that stays on my board is my wah-wah. I used it a lot when I was in a 5 piece but in a 3 piece I don't find myself stepping on it that much.

    The "fun" pedals that don't live on my board are my Big Muff Pi and my Fuzzface. I like both of them but they require a slightly different amp setup than I typically run to sound the best to me, and so while I use them a lot when my band records I generally don't pull them out all that much live.
