I've been tempted by the MF Drive too. From what I can tell it carries over to bass, guitar, keys, violin, whatever else fairly well. The option of having it work as a wah is cool too.

I'm sort of in the same boat, setting up a jazz-styled, post-rocky project, but solo. It seems like the trick for making a wall of sound is to mix the fuzz with things like reverb. I think one of the...

I'm not sure if they're still doing it, but Ibanez has the Genesis collection that's Japan-only.

Sorry, I kind of assumed when you said $140 that you meant that you had money to spend on a $140 pedal, and the extra money it would cost down in Chile. Oops.

I don't know about the G1X, but Zoom is pretty decent for the money. Their Multi-Stomp series look pretty neat, with a lot more focus on effects from what I can tell. The Zoom MS-50G is about $110...

If I had to grab 3 pedals and play just those, I would pick a delay, a fuzz, and something weird. If I had either a weird delay (like a Red Panda Particle) or weird fuzz with something like a...

I love the DL-4, offers a bunch of nice delays. It would be good for all of my delay needs, but I like to have a delay that's at the edge of oscillating out of control(which the DL-4 can do, but not...

I love my Boss PS-3.

Twiddling the Delay time knob in delay modes gets a really cool stuttery, rhythmic sound instead of the whammy-ish squeals one might be used to. Jacking up the repeats on mine...

Effects seem totally fine for an acoustic. Chorus is a pretty common one I'm pretty sure. Tremolo and reverb would probably be good for an indie-folk context.

Sounds like you'd be really into filters.

Ibanez makes a neat pedal for Lo-Fi sounds that should get you toward an AM radio sound/Wish You Were Here intro, along with a 10 band EQ to mess with.
