I run direct input to a mixer board with a magicstomp in line on my board with a 3 single pickup guitar (prs se)

I'm going to some meeting today for an hour and they pay you $200 at the end.

I'm looking to get something for guitar.
I was thinking the whammy 4, m-audio black box, or a reverb pedal
i play blues, rock, classic rock...

I'm not sure what to get....any suggestions?


edit:
I'm really looking into reverb pedals now. I looked at the Marshall RF-1 Reverb and Boss RV-5 pedals.

- The boss looks good but it doesn't have any standard reverbs that i would use.

- The Marshall looks and sounds great but reviews show some cases where it would just stop working.

now I'm looking for the sound of the Marshall type pedal in something around the same price but with more reliability

Thanks but I modded my crybaby and am really happy with it right now, no need for another wah.

I will get a whammy in the future though....I'm really going between that an a reverb pedal but I think I could use the reverb more right now.

if you want it all quick now, black box. But honestly maybe a boss digital reverb or the digitech X-Series one which is cool too.

If you're into Reverb try the Boss DD-3, you can set it to give you a very nice reverb sound, as well you get the delay.

seriously, check out the holy grail

or maybe, if you can save up a little bit...
get the Deluxe Memory Man for $315

it is a delay pedal that has chorus and vibrato
and can do reverb pretty good (so i hear....right slats? )

Whodicted

they are good reverb. but only reverb lol.
which manufacturer is that Deluxe memory man from?
btw Line 6 has that green box for delay/echo stuff.
those are like $245 and pretty decent.

lol or maybe a talkbox? ahaha
they're a pretty chill effect.

Dude, get an amp. You are running direct into the board for Petes sake, with only a distortion pedal between you and the board. Ugh! If I were you I would get a Cube, or Vox AD series amp. That way if you still need extra power you can mic, but there will be none of this distortion pedal straight into the board crud. And those two amps even have built in effects, as well as different amp models for you to toy with to your hearts content.

I do have a micro cube but tend to like the sounds of the magicstomp on its own.

I may run with it now for reverb as something just got my attention...

The M-Audio Black Box with reload software:

With this I wont have to go into the desktop at the other side of the room which is getting annoying as i have a cheap RCA cable going across the floor to the computer and its been getting stepped on making it break down every now and then.

NowI can just go out of the mixer into ths black box and then use usb later to go to the computer. It just looks like something exteremely useful even though it might not have the best sounds in the world.
