Want to add some pedals to my rig now, could use some advice, don't want anything stupidly expensive though please I use a Blackstar HT Stage 100 Head btw!

I play Metal/Metal-core and post hardcore mainly, Planning to get as basic pedals the smart gate by MRX and the electric polytune but on top of that....

For an OD - The MXR Zack Wylde pedal is tempting me as it seems perfect for what i want.

Reverb- The Holy Grail, Looks beautiful!

Delay- Stuck between the MXR Carbon Copy and the EHX Memory Man with Hazarai (Slightly confused as to exactly what this pedal does, does not seem like a straight forward Delay pedal)

I have also been looking at the Digitech Whammy, or EHX micro Pog or Pog2, any advice on any of these pedals would be nice!

Staple effects for any board are reverb, delay and wah. Go for a Dunlop wah if you don't want to shell out loads for something higher-end like a Morley.

I've heard good things about the Holy Grail, and seems to be good value for money. For delay, the MXR is a good bet, but for a much lower price you could get the EHX Memory Toy (not Man, Toy!). It's pretty much the same as the MXR only about half the price.

Personally, I don't think the Zakk Wylde pedal is very good at all. I'd suggest maybe the GT-OD or another OD pedal.

Also, give Boss and Digitech a look, they both do high quality pedals at reasonable prices.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.

Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.
The Zack Wylde pedal looks like it adds just a touch to an already heavy setting, which i already have. Yeah i've looked at Boss and Digitech and pretty much everyone already aha.
