    Christmas is rolling around, and Santa wants his list asap. I've become very... greedy I'll say for lack of a better word. Not really. Alright, I can't think of anything I want that isn't music related, so I'm going to ask for a shirt from southern lord or something, maybe some strings, and for my big present (we always get something around 100 bucks... I was thinking a new pedal.


    That's what I got... what should my next step be. I was thinking of one of the following:
    - Manual Wah (Yes, my vol pedal is also a wah, but an awful wah)
    - Delay
    - Compressor (I'm iffy about this one... I've got one on my boss me-6b... but it's not super great... a little noisey)

    Anything ideas? Suggestons?

    I'd go for the wah, I love mine, and use it often.

  3. get another phasor or a flanger, to put after the looper, so you can effect the loop! it'll be great!

    Morley Funk Wah could be cool.

    For me, a Big Muff is key.

    I'm a bit over distorted right now though. I've got my Rat/Boss, but also my main "on most of the time in my metal band" distortion (more laid back) on my multi effects unit.

    I'm voting on a EBS MultiComp compressor

    a good compressor will have spend a good amount of cash!

    u might want to check out the new Ashdown Dual Band Compressor. i have a feeling that they are based on the Trace Elliot on-amp Compressors which were quite cool. it aint expensive really. only sold in UK so far for 70s Sterligns

    :bag: Yessir :bag:

    I've got a few pedals like that. ;)

    I'm torn between compression and wah...

    EBS MultiComp
    Ashdown Dual Band Compressor

    I gotta make a note to research these. Good compression is good (currently listening to a lot of Tony Levin)

    I saw that Morley's wahs are being sold at Musicians Friend for about 60 bucks! Are they decent pedals? They look sturdy, that's a plus.

    I also want a wah with an easy on/off feature. The other thing that sucks about that wah/volume on my board is it is hard to turn off and on, you really gotta kick it.
