Variety Pack (3 picks) of Super Blacks picks. ($5.49 US)
These are the picks I use 80% of the time. I find they have an amazingly smooth tone, and because of the shape, they glide across the strings easily.
I prefer the use the round edge of a regular shaped pick, but with these, I find the shape is already perfect.

Scuffham S-Gear ($129 US).
Created by former Marshall Amps product designer Mike Scuffham, S-Gear is arguably the most frequently recommended guitar amp software, and with good reason. S-Gear brings five amp simulations to the table, none of which are direct “1:1” emulations, but instead offering Mike’s particular take on famous amp designs (with a few extra tricks to hand) but without sacrificing tonal authenticity. The amps offered here go from vintage to modern and are able to tackle pretty much any style.Cabinet simulation is handled by a custom impulse response (IR) loader with its own set of tweaks and a great library of IRs are provided to cover the most common/favoured speaker configurations.

KO Amps 12th St. Special ($125 CAD)
A no nonsense workhorse overdrive with a traditional voicing to cover as much ground as possible. Handles low to mid gain tones superbly with a nice mild mid boost. The tone control is a treble roll off like a rat to tame the highs.It has a wider tone response than the KOi did, so you can get some bite if needed but with the same smoothness. Designed in conjunction with Mr. Robert Renman, I modeled it after the Rendrive I made as a one off gift that turned out better than expected.
Auckland, by RJ Amps ($299 US)
The Auckland high gain pedal is a hardwired distortion able to give a detailled high gain sound with an unsurpassed level of keeping the low end.
The sounds of the Auckland range from Dumble like smooth drive to the ultimate in detailled distortion.The pedal is fully hardwired which translates in a clear articulated sound with loads of harmonics and a serious punch in the lower registers.
Lunastone TrueOverdrive 2 ($149 US)

TrueOverDrive 2 is as true to transparent and tube-like overdrive as the original TOD 1. Yet it adds a serious punch in the low end frequencies, creating a beefier tone that will fill any venue with warm and fat overdrive. Apart from that, TOD 2 is offering the same qualities and benefits: True overdrive that doesn’t just sound like tubes, but also behaves like tubes!

A drive that you can ride with the volume knob on your guitar, going from sweet crunch to screaming mayhem without the obvious ‘change of mode’ that typically jumps in at a certain point.

5 people win 1 pack each, in other words.
