I am playing electric a lot more now then usual; I used to play acoustic fingerstyle a ton. I am just finishing learning "No Rain" by Blind Melon, and I think I will be doing Jessica by The Allman Brothers next. Anyways, I have some leftover cash.. about 120-140$ and I am thinking about buying pedals.

What are the first pedals I should be buying?

I play mainly Classic Rock, but I would REALLY like to get into Reggae.

I was thinking a wah pedal especially for the reggae side, but it also works with Classic Rock.

What are some great brands as well? (I am looking for a GOOD pedal. Not expensive/amazing, but not a cheap **** one)


Also heard that delay pedal is good for Reggae. I have reverb... so maybe Wah/Delay?

I know "No Rain" uses Delay... so maybe Wah and Delay would work for Reggae and Classic Rock.

ah I need to stop rambling.

i have a dunlop crybaby signature but i have played others and they sound amazing

the Dunlop Multi-Wah is great i def recommend it and its in your price range
Guitar- ESP LTD Kh 602

Amp- Randall rx75r
Vox AD30VT

Equipment- Dime Crybaby From Hell
Korg PX4D Pandora

Drums- groove percussion set with zht cymbals and remo heads
For a wah I'd suggest a Dunlop origonal crybaby ($70). As for delay, that's really up to you, maybe get a Boss DD-3 or the new MXR Carbon Copy. Definitely stay away from the Behringer stuff.
Keeping it real since '92
Dunlop makes good wahs (not the original tho) but for your style i'd look at vox.

I have an OS-2. Very nice for a first pedal.

I've heard a ton about Dunlop wah being good and the "original" being bad.

Zakk Wydle signature was supposed to be good?

I think I will go try out some wahs.

I may go with the DD 3 though, that looks nice.

Thanks everyone!
