So for christmas i want to get a new effect, thing is.... i have the prettiest board ever. I have the T-rex Alberta for distortion for the raw edge. I have the Mxr Phase 90, there's a MXR stereo chorus, boss fender reverb (which i like over my fender blues junior amp) , Carl Martin Delayla XL, and there's a MXR dynacomp(ressor)

I also have this boss looper, and i hate the thing but i can work with it.... now there is no point asking for a new guitar cuz i have two amazing guitars. (Eric Johnson strat and a great standard tele) So i want to ask for an effect... but i'm like what!!!

What is going to be like.... the next Wow factor i need

If you have the tone you want then thats all you need. Get a looper if you want something to play around with I guess

I have one... The boss Rc2, i hate its guts but it does the trick. No point buying a more expensive one since i own my own studio. I can pretty much record whatever and however i want. So i need creative effects....

Help.

Cuz well next to new strings its the only thing i can think of asking

Sorry, missed that part. Get a nice tuner pedal? I really don't know what else to say, normally people buy effects because they are looking for a certain sound...If you have your sound why screw it up?

Well in the studio i tend to use effects on crazy settings to get inspired. Like i have this effect that makes your guitar sounds like an organ. Makes you play awesome stuff you would never think of to play... i guess i need more crazy effects. I can recreate them in the studio but i love to create them through the amp.

Does it make so much difference? I always have the feeling i can make a cheap amp sound expensive in the studio by using some smart EQ. I might just be completely wrong here

Wah is extremely versatile. Not all wah work is Voodoo Chile.

If that "smart EQ" is something like an Axe-FX or a Kemper sure, otherwise, no, just no.

I generally route my guitar into my Uaudio Solo 610 and then into amplitude, or run it straight from my amp. then adding some EQ and i'ts pretty much done. I really need Effects... Maybe a cool wah way

Oh ok, you're using amplitude - gotcha. Still, it couldn't hurt to get some special amps like an 18W Marshall or sometin. It's going to be years before anybody's gonna get the dynamics of that amp modelled properly. Same with the old Fender Deluxe.

I'd love myself a Princeton or something like that, i just think santa doesnt have the funds for that lol. So lets stick to effects. Heard of this instant arpeggio effect mayer uses???

No offense BJ but the pedals you got are NOT the most attractive. Just sayin'


you need a MXR Carbon Copy.

When it comes to delay i love my delayla and if i need anything else i use my PSP audio stuff in the studio. So really, i guess i need crazy effects

tremolo is nice, or you can get some messed up sounds with a whammy, like using the harmony mode in octave up and picking chords.

Crazy effects you say, I say if you can get a voodoo lab wahzoo or earthauaker devices rainbow machine. The kimgs of epicly trippy effects.

If you've already got a nice board and you're happy with your sound, don't buy more pedals for the sake of it.

Get something useful like a rack tuner or a good wireless system.

You want to re-create your 'organ-like' sounds through an amp, you say???

Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.
