Depends which you would prefer. Though don't go cheap on either of them, as a bit extra goes a long way in the effects world.

That's the best thing for a Thunderbird!

Anyway, wah and distortion are 2 very different effects with 2 very different purposes. If you were comparing, say, a chorus to a flanger, that's one thing, but what exactly do you intend on doing with this pedal?

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

I'd go with an Overdrive, wah pedals tend to get 'old' or boring.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?
#10
Get a Chorus pedal!

Joke aside, we are not here to tell you which pedal to get, only you can do that. Listen to the music that plays in your head and your fingers want to make. Which pedal do you need? If you don't need anything don't get anything.
#12
why do you need the pedal?
if its just b/c your parents will buy you one buy a delay there really fun to mess around with
I'll lay waiting, just waiting for my time to come
#13
delay effect probably wouldnt be a bad idea if youre not sure on what you like but want something more/new to keep you interested. if you like aggressive heavy music try overdrive or distortion. if you like funk try the wah. if youre not sure, just wait it out till you can try them out or know more about what you want. listen to sound clips, they might help.

Distortion!!!

Closely followed by a wah
