Not really, its just there are so many choices,

Im really not sure of what OD, Delay or comp to get

Edit: will the BBE do much with the EQ also in the chain?

wylde OD is ONLY for using it with a dirty amp. use it alone and it's worthless. i think it adds the most sustain than any other OD pedal. i use the TS-9 for a bit of a gain, mid, and treble booster. dont really like how the ZW works.
and weeping demon is pretty bad too. just buy a crybaby or a Bad Horsie.
personally think you should take out the comp and BBE and put in a chorus or phaser. i like MXR too lol.

i think all the other pedals would be good, but the whole toneloc series of pedals from ibanez sucks. if you want an switchless wah/spring loaded wah, go with Morley or the dunlop 95Q

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I live in the US, the thing is that, i was planning on getting the amp for christmas along with a OD and nose gate and just use the feects on my pod, then get these pedals over time.

I think the most i can get is like 600$ of an amp this chirstmas and this one seems to fit the bill pretty good.

You can get a pretty good amp for 600 if you go used. I suppose you play metal?
Peavey 6505+
Fender Hot Rod Deville 410
Fender Telecaster Blacktop
Gretsch G5120
#15
yeah, i play metal, I play alot of dream theater, breaking benjamin, i like the guys tone from A7x, and the human abstract.

I dont need a stack, a 50 watt combo would be suitable for my needs

with 600 bucks, you get a slightly better amp than the RG50TC. if you dont mind having terrible cleans, look for a used 5150 or 6505 combo, and theres also the peavey XXX combo which has good cleans compared to the 5150. i could go on all day listing these, but its pretty easy to find them. do you have a used music shop near you? if so, it would be better to look there for used gear than on ebay. and btw, get a boss OD instead of the ZW.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Ive herd good things about the 5150, the problem is i dont have anywhere to try it out, guitar center doesnt have a used one, and most music shops Ive been to around here have little to no quality amps, its just like Line 6 spider 3 and Marshall

I actually had to jam on a 6505 and 5150 recently for out of town gigs and they have good cleans. Get off the bandwagon buddy!

You sound like you want the Mesa sound considering you are playing DT and A7X

I recommend

Used Mesa F30 or F50
Used Mesa .50 caliber
Used Mesa DC-2 or DC-5

Some claim B-52s to be the poor mans recto, but I cannot atest to this as I think they are alot chunkier than rectos.

thanks for replying, Im not a fan of the B-52's I dont know what it is about them but i just dont like it.

Ill take those amps into consideration, its really a matter of where i can find them to try them out.

What do you think about Bugera just out of curiosity

How come the majority of people (that I've seen) planning new rigs think they need a "sonic maximizer" ?

cuz it really makes a difference have you ever heard one used on guitar? Ever since i "got" the plugin for Reaper its been a effect in every track on my recordings.

Bugeras are pretty nice IMHO,
Some people claim to have reliability issues within the first few days of owning them, but if you make it past a few days i'm pretty sure you'll be completely rock-solid

It just seems like an EQing shortcut. I'd say as a recording tool, fair game. But in the actual guitar rig, I think that taking the time to EQ properly will work out better.

120 watts tube, thats alot, just in general. I was really looking for a new rig in general, not just for band practice. hmmm So many options

Which one would you suggest out of the 3?
