    None. Save your money until you actually know what you really want or need. Spending on an effect even though you don't really need it is extremely stupid, especially if you don't even know why you want it.
     
  3. I agree, there are no real good effects under $80 but if you could give use a little bit of a discription of what you want we may be able to help you.

    Actually there are lots of decent pedals available for under $80. You still need to figure out what you want and why.

    yes i should be more specific... what i have been wanting is an envelope filter... is that guyatone one pretty good? its not that expensive.
     
  6. Actually it's pretty weak, it doesn't really peak unless you slap the strings really hard or use a fuzz infront of it.

    For a few bucks more you could get a BassBalls. Make sure you try one out before you buy though.
     
  8. You can also get a mini Q-tron.
