Hey Guys,

Been playing the electric more over the acoustic lately and I'm looking to get some pedals and not sure what I should be looking for. Lately I've been playing a lot of Rage against the Machine and Audioslave (big Morello Fan) so I've been leaning towards a Digitech Whammy pedal and a CryBaby Wah. I've pretty much decided on the Digitech but I can't seem to decide between the original cry baby or a Zakk Wylde. I believe Morello uses a original but I sorta like the crunchyness of the Wylde. If anyone has any suggestions please help or if there is another pedal you think would be better. I don't play in a band or anything this is just a jamming in the spare room because I can thing.

THX

PS: Andrew how'd you make out on the Gibson hunt?

Hi Rokchik - very well thanks smile.gif I played an SG and an LP, LOVED the clean tone of the LP, but found the SG a little more playable, certainly faster ... but the LP they had in the shop was the 50s neck, and now I know what you mean about playing a baseball bat! I will definitely add an LP to my collection eventually, but will probably go for the 60s neck - I just love the sound of those humbuckers and the bags of sustain you get with the LP standard - an awesome guitar. I would probably use it for bluesey and clean acoustic stuff mostly, and I'll probably get an Ibanez for more shreddy stuff (this is long term though as I am very happy with my Variax for now, but want to build my collection).

Try looking into the Digitech Space Station. I think you'll get all the sounds you are looking for.

Thanks! I actually bought the Whammy pedal on Sat. I'm still torn between the two Wah's but a friend of mine has a buddy in a band who has the Zakk Wylde and he's loaned it to me while he's out of town. Not much good it will do me as laid up for next month with arm in a sling but we'll see how it goes.

You can always just listen to some good tunes to keep you inspired. There was an artical in GuitarWorld,
about 3-4 months ago with Mr.Morello. It gave alot of into on how he gets his sound. Hope that helps a bit. All the best to you and the arm.

id go with the original, because its versatile for half the cost. You cant go wrong with it. Both wah's are different in sound, so if you cant choose between the two, then buy both. Offcourse we all dont have that kinda cash but one way or the other youd have a good time with it.

I have that mag and disc almost worn out. It was a great help as was having a bit of problem with "Killing in the name" I'm still torn on the wahs as havn't been able to play anything but I've been listening to different songs that I know utilize the different kinds and it's helped a bit. But I'll have to play both to see. Right now though I'm sorta digging the crunchyness (not sure if that's a word) of the Wylde but we'll see...the saga continues.
