Pedals Currently Own:D
 
MXR108
Best eq pedal on the market as far as im concerned it has lots of features like volume, gain and 10 different freq sliders. Does its job well and its built like a tank.
Cons- gets a tad hissy when sliders are cranked

Bad Monkey
The best sounding OD pedal you can get for $27 bucks new was on sale. Makes things tight and fat... Beat out my TS9 for what im using it for.. Secret is gain 0 level 10..
Con's reliablity might be an issue

Isp Decimator
Best Noise suppression pedal on the market bar none... Kills everything and doesnt suck tone.
Con's none

Protone Body Rot
Heavyest distortion pedal i have ever played. True bypass, boutique and made well. Modern tone..
Con's none but is pricey

Protone T.V. Delay
Really nice delay with a analog tone. Boutique and well made as well..
Con's price and features

Pedals of the past

Metalzone
It was metal i give it that... Everyone gets one of these at one time or another, i've actually owned two.. lol
Con's really hissy and harsh as hell

Metal Muff
Really nice distortion pedal with alot of features and built well.
Con's a little too buzzy for me and top boost is nasty if you crank it to far.

Line 6 Uber Metal
Really liked this pedal had a good tone to it and lots of options. Also its pretty much pantera in a box. Put it on pulverize and you get the dime bag tone and harmonics out the ying yang..
Con's none great petal

Boss DS1
Owned two of these because i had one sold it and then bought another to mod. But never got around to it. Anyway its a good beginner pedal and can pretty much nail the kill em all tone and seek and destroy.
Con's needs more features and to buzzy and not full at all

Zoom GFX1
Nice cheap multi effects unit, could get a good dimebag sound out of it but thats about it.
Con's slow switching and not many good options

Zoom G2
Great multi effects unit for the price, fast switching and great sounds.
Con's still to digitial and multieffects get old after a while

Fab Metal
Sucks for 5 bucks more i was able to get a DS1
Con's everything and almost blew up my amp

Line 6 Verbzilla
Superb delay pedal, lots of features and lots of options with a really good tone to it.
Con's none but really who needs that many types of reverb lol

Hellbabe Wah
Cheap
Con's sucks didnt have a good tone to it and just sucked all around

Ibanez TS9 and Modified Version
Great pedal and was superb for blues tone. Also really good at tightening up tube amps
Con's None, was just lacking in the level and options department

MXR Distortion + and Modified Version
Was a nice overdrive.
Con's distotion was pretty bad on these reminded me of a DS1

Behringer TM300
Cheap, could almost get a metallica tone out of it
Con's sucked and was cheap stopped working

BBE 882I
Worked great and did what it was supposed to do..
Con's turns your tube amp digital slightly

T.C. Electronics M300
Had nice features
Con's volume knob stopped working and not enough features and was a pain to work.

Digitech Grunge
Well it did grunge pretty good lol. Hits nirvana pretty nice
Con's Two of them broke on me

Digitech Death metal
Dont know it broke when i got it..

Crybaby Wah
Great wah but...
Con's Needs the Classic Faisal mod

nice review i agree with most of the pedals that i know of own/have owned :) also question, why do you have a protone body rot (i still say its ridiculous how close sounding that is too proco rat lol) if you have a ultra, AND a randall for heavy gain stuff?

Hey! You're a life saver =O

Anyway, I'm gonna dump a $500 max on pedals and I need to cover these:

Wah
Chorus
Phaser
Delay
Distortion

My amp can pretty much do everything except modern metal. The crunch, sound and feel only goes to Classic, imagine Master of Puppets pretty much.

so I went over these pedals: (I need some suggestions if I'm fine or should I get something else)

Wah: Vox Wah
Reason: It just sounds different as a Wah, and I'm very versatile on what I play. I want to be and sound different and I like the spacey shiny wah sound on this one.

Chorus/Phaser: EHX Flanger Hoax
Reason: Both effects in one. Again, it sounds kinda spacey and it has quite some modulation options to EQ it all around to my liking. Only $180

Delay: EHX Number 1Echo
Reason: Dude on the proguitarshop video tested it all around and when he capped the delay effect, he made it sound like a violin pretty much or something very very melodic. Only $99

Continued:

Distortion: EHX Metal Muff
Reason: My Amp can do from Gospel to Clean to Pop to Country to Blues to Jazz to Hard Rock to Classic Metal. I don't really need a OD, my amp has 2 innate boost modes for Clean and Gain channels, and it does get close to Modern Metal, but it doesn't really do the job. This pedal seems reliable, and I can EQ it around to my liking. Looking for it to get a Bullet for my Valentine tone or Avenged Sevenfold. If I can get that. I'm Happy. I'm lead guitarist btw.

Continued: Last part

Got videos on them from youtube. Can't try them out since the guitar shops here suck but I do know my stuff on Guitar so I'm not really new at it, I'm new at effects. Mainly want an opinion if I'm on the right track for what I selected as my future pedals or I should try other stuff.

Also, I see you got the Gator Pedal Board with power supply pack. Is it worth it? Does the power supply bring the cables to power up the pedals? or do you gotta buy them seperately.

Thanks!

Sorry I posted here, but your inbox is full. Feel free to delete this if it bothers you. =)
