    RE-EDIT'd post:


    i think i'm being too obtuse in my inquiry, so in thinking about it, i guess i want compact versions of:

    - auto wah (sorta settled on the BassIQ)
    - fuzz (zvex woolly mammoth anyone?)
    - EQ (any great sounding pedal versions other than the boss?)
    - chorus (analogman mini clone chorus is high on the list)

    and any other different tools y'all would recommend for a small pedalboard that has the "essentials"?

    I would think a delay of some sort would be essential.
  3. autowah/envelope filter - EBS Bass IQ
    EQ...dont really kno of any smaller than the boss GEB-7
    fuzz - woolly mammoth, guyatone TZ-2
    chorus - the analog man is nice, most chorus pedals im more familiar with are bigger than the boss ceb-3...

    hope that helps...

    also, if ur definition of "compact" also includes pedals of a "boss" size, then theres a lot mroe out there, but for the sake of being "mini", i only recommended pedals smaller than a boss pedal

    if you go delay the guyatone md3 is great for that, sounds good.

    no other recommendations since i only use larger-than-boss pedals (fulltone bassdrive, punch factory, etc)

    if you want a sort of haorse wah sound thats a bit more 'raw' than the neat-sounding ebs the guyatone bottom wah rocker is cool, samples on their website on the artist page for justin meldal-johnsen

    Just check Guyatone. They have a cool BassIQ style pedal too.

    I love how small those little Guyatone pedals are.
