For most guitarists, probably a wah-wah pedal and a distortion pedal. For me, it'd definitely be a Vox V847 wah and a nice Keeley-modified Boss BD-2 Blues Driver pedal! Also, if I could afford one, the Keeley Compressor would be in there as well--those things sound great! Of course, so do all the pedals that Robert Keeley modifies, including his modified version of the Blues Driver. Seriously, if any of you other guitarists have never checked Keeley's work out, you've got to hear some of the pedals he modifies! Here's a link to his site:

A very underrated pedal for me, and most guitarists, is the noise suppressor. Outside of that I use a wah and a chorus, but neither a lot.

Wah-wah is definatley the essential, you can get distortion and all the others built in on amps, but wah pedals can only be manually controlled through a pedal.

I play Blues guitar mostly and don't own a pedal. Not needed for the Blues. I just use the gain and reverb already on the amp.
