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