#1
EQ Pedal
Noise Gate
Either a flanger, phaser, or chorus pedal
Fuzz pedal

My ideal set up would be:
Guitar>Weeping Demon>Fuzz Pedal>Tubescreamer>EHX Metal Muff>Amp>Effects Loop (Effects pedal>EQ pedal>noise gate)

Eventually, I plan to purchase the Octaswitcher and run everything in front of the amp on an individual channel and then run the effects loop set-up on its own channel.

My style is hard-blues-rock/punk influences/thrash-esque metal.

Budget is unlimited because I plan to get these pedals at different periods, although I'd like to keep a limit to $200/pedal.

Also, advise me on what order I should get these in and what order they should go on the pedal board.

Oh, I totally forgot! If you can find one used, a Boss DC2/DC3 are some of the most absolutely gorgeous choruses out there IMO.

For an EQ the obvious choice would be the MXR M-108. It's a great pedal.

As far as Eq, I think the 10-8 is a little overrated. What most people do with it is make smiles or frowns, which is something you can do for free if your amp has 3 band eq. If you want to save a little cash and you'd still like to have that boost and solo tone availiable, I'd go with the MXR 6 band.

I'm willing to fork out the money for more versatility.

Its definitely a great pedal, but to make it worth it to yourself take an hour or so and experiment with all the sliders individually instead of just making pretty shapes.

And I would agree.

I disagree.

The 10 band eq allows for much better tone shaping than 3 bands. If you are trying to say remove or add upper mids or lower mids, kinda hard to do with a 3 band. 10 band is definetly worth it IMO.

The lowest band on my MXR is a bit unnecessary, I'll admit, but every other band affects my sound in a big way. The gain and volume sliders are very helpful for quieting my amp down when need be.

Also, you CAN'T boost frequencies with an amp's EQ, you can only cut (10 being the maximum the amp puts out) With an EQ you can boost and cut because it's active.

I'm not so sure on that. Typically, 12 o'clock is no cut or boost in that band stage. So "10" would be maximum boost and "0" would be maximum cut.

I'm not positive but I'm not sure if thats quite the case. And even if it is, most of the percieved tone comes from the volume of the frequencies relative to each other. And don't get me wrong- the 10-8 is a great pedal that can provide quite a few options, but quite a few people don't use it to it's full potential.
