    Unfortunate events occured last night when my Line 6 Bass Pod XT was ruined by water damage (I don't know how it happened) Anyways- its ruined beyond repair.

    This time around I was thinking about getting individual pedals instead of a bass/amp modeler.

    I want to get a few pedals:
    1) Echo/Delay.
    2) Distortion/Overdrive (Les Claypool type distortion)
    3) A good tuner for quick, onstage tuning.
    4) Volume/Wah (Cliff Burton style)

    I would appreciate any suggestions or anything you have to offer. Cost is not that big of a deal, looking for some quality equipment. If it helps, my current rig is the SWR Tower of Power 8X10, and an Ibanez SR 3000 e.

    Delay/echo - Dane echo

    Distortion - les claypool apparently uses a vintage proco rat

    tuner - boss tu-2

    wah - morley or dunlop bass wah

    volume - ernie ball volume pedal

    My thoughts

    1) Echo/Delay - Any digital delay, I have a digitech which is cool

    2) Distortion/Overdrive (Les Claypool type distortion) - never found one I like, going for a tube preamp to get my distortion.

    3) A good tuner for quick, onstage tuning. - Peterson Strobostomp, got it, love it, easy to see

    4) Volume/Wah (Cliff Burton style) - even though it;s a checpy I hear the new Behrigner one will be coolm adjustable for different frequencies and no pots to go bung.

    Are you looking for a pedal tuner or rack mount? Pedal, my vote is Boss TU-2, rackmount, I'd go with a Korg DT1000 (I think that's the model). Can't really help on the others. PM sent.

    1) Echo/Delay: I've heard good things about that Danelectro Echo, other than that the Line 6 Echo Modeller doohickey is nice.
    2) Distortion/Overdrive: I'd have at least one or two, one being a Big Muff
    3) A good tuner: TU-2 in pedal form, any Korg rackmount if you don't mind racking it.
    4) Volume/Wah: Morley is what Cliff used, you may prefer the Dunlop

    how bout the pod live pedalboard. It needs some tweaking out of the box just like the xt, but its has some really nice sounds and its easy to control with your feet - and is a lot less clutter then multiple pedals, cords yada yada yada...
