Delay and wah are always good. I'd look into the BBE Sonic Stomp...quite possibly the single best investment I've made for my pedal board. Tubescreamers and the like are always kinda cool and give some variety to the sound.

10 band MXR EQ. Put it in the loop where it does the most good. With everything you throw at your sound before that a little shaping with an EQ can work wonders.

Yes because a 10-band EQ is the solution to everything.


Anyways, if you're looking to buy a pedal, just go play with them. Without any idea of even what TYPE of pedal you want or a PURPOSE you want it to fulfill, asking a forum of people with vastly varying opinions seems rather pointless to me.

i have played a bunch of pedals.... i was in a music store the other day and tried over 30 different ones... theres just too many too choose from so i figured id see if anyone had a suggestion

Well...figure out your distortion needs first. Are you happy with the amp's distortion? Do you ever want to add a bit more gain either for solos or just because? If you want a bit more or a boost you should get an overdrive pedal. If you are completely happy with the distorted sound, I would say go either delay or wah
