    What do you want it to do? Maybe you don't need a pedal.

    Austin, this thread's going to end up going down the tubes pretty quickly. Please specify what you're looking for in a pedal, what you want to achieve with your tone, or why you even want a pedal.

    A tuner. I love my Boss TU-2. Other pedals come and go, but the tuner *always* goes with me.

    The best pedal ever made remains a good cable, right from your passive bass to your amp ! :p

    Sorry... :D
