Hauling two fuzzes, an overdrive, a distortion, a wah, a chorus, all the required power supplies and patch cables, etc. around at college and having to set up and stow them whenever I want to use them is getting to be a pain in the ass. At least for use here, I'm looking into a multi-FX pedal. I've always been a fan of their modeling, and it's dirt cheap, so I've been looking strongly at the Vox Stomplabs. However I am at a conundrum; 1G, or $20 more and get the 2G?

On the one hand, the 1G is cheaper, smaller, lighter, and I really love the sound of my 535, so I'm not sure I'd even like the built-in wah enough to use it. But on the other, that's one less power supply, patch cable, and pedal to carry around, and I get any other expression pedal effects I want for only $20 more, though looking through the manual, I don't think I'd use anything else from it.

Main uses would be for messing around playing, practicing, turning the crappy practice room amps into something passable, as well as running direct into an interface and recording. Nothing high-end and professional, jsut recordings for fun and messing around.

Which should I go with?

I'd really like to keep it below $100. $120 for something really great, but I'm strapped for cash, so I can't afford to splurge on it.

i own a 2g. its better, definitely worth it. even if u r not into wah or compression it works great as volume control n lots more other stuffs. u probably wont regret the $20
