Sup guys so i plan on ordering a ton of used pedals soon and so far on my list i have a ch-1 super chorus a tu-2 tuning pedal some kind of over drive a wah and maybe some type of eq. what i want to know is what is a good wah that is not going to break the bank for metal stuff crazy solos (slash kirk hammet). and the other thing i would like to know is what could i use an eq for? what do they do and if i would get one would it be useful? Thanks!

I have the Morley Bad Horsie 2, and it is a great wah. I paid $65 for it used at GC online. It has a classic wah setting and a contour wah setting. And it comes on when your foot is on the pedal so no toe tapping (which I love)

Actually any Morley used would be nice. The Morley power wah is a nice one to look at also

So it has like a sensor to know when your foot is on it? and what about eq? i heard the fish n chips one is pretty good.

I'd get a used boss or DOD before the FnC. The FnC is a nice EQ but it is in a plastic case, that ruins it for me. But if you want to save cash it will work just fine

Yes the Morley has an optical lense that senses the sweep so there is also no pot to wear out which means they last a long time

It isnt going any where just staying in my room so i dont know if it really matter if its plastic or not.

Then the plastic will be fine.

I had an original cry baby and it was alright, but it struggled with hi-gain. I got a Marley Bad Horsie 2 wah and I could not be happier. I have a regular wah for the more classic things and a adjustable contour wah for my hi-gain uses. and it was $65 used

What you should get if you're looking to cover a lot of ground with pedals, is a delay (I personally think that they're essential pedals), and/or a reverb, depending on what styles you play most. Delay works for almost any genre, reverb doesn't as much.

As for the Crybaby's, again IMO, they don't have a large enough sweep or that there isn't enough resistance, for me, in the pedal. If you want to have a wah, the GCB-95 is good. I bought mine to have that option. But if you NEED a wah, you could do better.

the morley wahs are excellent. the fish and chips is okay, but the footswitch is crap and dodgy. look at a used boss ge-7.

and boss sd-1 overdrive is good and cheap.
#12
Is the extra 20 bucks or so worth getting a boss eq? and it seems that the morley wahs are pretty big and expensive i would like to get something that is about 50 bucks or so to try it out.
#13
Yeah for the extra $20 I'd get the Boss. You can try a cry baby or Vox, they are not bad, but I prefer Morley

maybe ill just skip on the wah get a boss ge-7 a ch-1 and a tu-2. also do you think i should get a sd-1 to tighten up my gain and even get a little more or do you think its fine without one with the ultra?

I own a Digitech Bad Monkey, and one of the things I like about it is the bass and treble knob, versus the more standard, single "tone" knob. I feel like it give you that extra option, versus a single tone sweep to try and find the sweet spot you like.

Again, if it were me, I would skip getting a chorus and get a delay instead.

Another great thing about the Bad Monkey is that it has that Boss kind of build quality. I'm not the biggest fan of the footswitch hinges that you have to press in to get to the battery, but just plug it into a 9V adapter.

For purely home use I'd go for the Dano Fish & Chips instead of a noisy as **** GE-7.

The biggest problem I have with the Dano is the layout. It's too easy to hit the sliders with your foot during a gig but at home that shouldn't be an issue. Sonically the F&C kicks the Boss's arse. The Boss is way more rugged and ergonomic but that's it.

The Bad Monkey is a good pedal. It does suck a little tone but nothing that a tweak of the presence knob can't rectify. I use one.
The SD-1 is a good pedal too but hard to justify the price over a Bad Monkey. If I had my druthers, I'd druther have a Green Rhino.

I've owned two GE-7s (one Taiwanese and one Japanese), and I own the Fish & Chips right now. I completely agree with everything Cath has said here.

As for OD, the Bad Monkey is the only pedal worth considering on the cheap, IMO.

I like the CH-1 chorus, I think it's extremely good, if not the best for the price you can get them. I like them objectively too, regardless of price. That said, the Chorus I have/use is a BBE Mind Bender, and I am absolutely in love with it. One of my favorite pedals I have ever owned. Might be more than you want to spend though.
