Hey guys, been looking at Electro Harmonix pedals and I'm new to pedals, well pedal combinations and I'm wondering what pedals should I buy first to create some wierd, wacky and some zany lead guitar sounds?

I already have a boss CE-3 which is a chorus pedal by the way.

The HOG & Synth Wah are the 2 I first think of.

EHX have really good demo videos, I'd recommend checking them out.

Wasn't it EHX that just came out with that Frequency Analyzer? Now THAT is a crazy pedal. Also look at Death By Audio if you want crazy sounds, and Devi Ever if you're into teh fuzzzz.

since it seems like you're pretty new to effect pedals, I'd like to recommend the Memory Boy, not expensive, widely available, easy to manipulate, very basic effect (meaning you'll also be able to use in a 'regular' effects line up) yet capable of producing some really cool and weird sounds.

is it obvious I'm GASsing for one at the moment?

Most people don't give a shit about tone... We are the exception, not the rule.




I probably am a bit more rule than exception though

What the heck does The Frequency Analyzer do, aswell as the Death By Audio pedal of course?

the frequency analyzer is a simple ring mod. i have the big box version and it sounds really ****ing cool when you use it with a drum machine.

i second death by audio. they make 8-bit pedals, pedals with undescribable unique effects, the fuzz war, which is like a big muff, only better. and then youve got stuff like the soundwave breakdown, which is like a midpoint

What!? They make pedals that sound like 8-bit video games? I must get one of those.

well basics are a wah and a delay. if you use those 2 with a overdrive or something, 1 or any combination you can get some great sounds. all those pedals are pretty much nesessities anyway for all genres.

but you really want to get crazy stuff like a MXR bluebox and digitech whammy and stuff give you unlimited weird options. (well bluebox is just one sound but its weird)

I've had lame experiences every time. Although other people say they've been great all the time.


So, no bad experiences with the pedal? just Gak?
