I've been asked what I want for the holidays, but I dont know what to say. My amplifier has all of the effects built in. Distortion, delay, reverb, chorus, phaser, tremolo.... I'm mostly into rock and metal. What else is there that I need? dry.gif

Wah pedal. No amp can have a built in wah pedal (edit: that is to say, auto wah can be cool but it is simply not the same effect as a pedal), it is just not the same thing. If you already have one, maybe a pandora or something cool like that. I want one o' thems.

You cannot go wrong with a WD or any variant of a Crybaby. I've got the Wylde Baby, it sounds much better with gain. You could also consider a Bad Horsie.

A digitech whammy pedal is a lot of fun and is becoming increasingly relevant in music. If you have more than one guitar, perhaps a chromatic pedal tuner, acts as a mute button while you switch guitars. If your guitars have problems of picking up on noise, might try a noisegate. If you play with a scooped amp/EQ's, might get an EQ pedal to boost you through the solos.

Maybe new pickups. did you get a dean razorback? I really want to play a Dean V 255.

I'd get a Morley Wah. They are really good.

Along with that you could still get other effects because not all effects built into an amp are top quality. Maybe a better distortion since you like rock and metal.

A synthesizer is a possibility too. biggrin.gif If you get one of those, get one made by Moog.

Go for a Crybaby (Standard,Zakk Wylde or Dime signature). They top every other wah when it comes to sound(exept you can manage to get an old vox wah which sounds even better)

What about some recording gear?Like something to use your guitar via USB and play and record.Maybe a Wireless system so you can move all over the place and not worry about cords.New pickups for your guitar,Sheet music stand for your tabliture,Strap locks or a new strap, Dude i could go on forever! biggrin.gif

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

You can get all sort of gear man. if you are planning to buy new axe soon don`t buy pickups. Are interested in recording gear? Maybe some fasttrack or toneport would be nice. That like the ideal present for a musician. smile.gif Are you gigging? What kind of music do you play. Maybe get some extra delay pedal. Usually effects from amp are not very good..

What sort of a budget are we talking about here just to narrow it down a bit? Otherwise we might be in danger of producing everyone's ideal holdiay/birthday presents list (I'd add a Neumann mic pref a U 87, a Manley comp, a Neve channel strip a ...) .

Of the ones listed so far Teese Wah I'd say as a +1 for immediate gratification and a decent recording set up as not instant but longer term.

Cheers,
Tony
