I'm kind of wondering what Pedals you guys use. I've been using my Dunlop Crybaby for quite a while now which was a really good investment ;)And now I'm thinking about expanding my possessions, what do you recommend?

Would you wanna use a lot of effects? Cause if you do id recommend an effects processor pedal. Digitech Rp250 is what i have. If not then i donno lol... ive only ever used my Rp250

I use a Digitech RP200a and a Dunlop Crybaby. The RP200a contains loads of good presets and allows a high level of customization, but switching between patches is quite slow. Depends what amp you use to a certain extent - I just have a crappy little amp so I use the RP200a for my distortion, amp modelling, cabinet modelling, etc. But if you have a decent amp then you may be better off just buying single stompboxes. Boss are a very good manufacturer of FX stompboxes, but they are quite expensive (~80). Behringer on the other hand are really cheap (17 per stompbox). I would imagine that they are nowhere near as good as Boss pedals but a mate of mine has one and he said that the sound quality is good but the case is made of plastic so it could break easily.

Well I'm more up to like getting a good amp and then completing with single stomboxes. I think that multi effects are great for exercising at home but I'm a bit sceptical about them live. I'm e.g. thinking on getting a delay pedal, but I'm not sure of which model I should buy..

I usually run my guitar through either a Jimi Hendrix Dunlop Crybaby or a Digitech Synth Wah, then through a V AMP 2 to my original amp. If I don't use the V AMP, I usually will borrrow something else, or just use other pedal to compensate. The thing i'm trying to experiment with though is using overdrive pedals (in particular, the BOSS Super Overdrive) to boost my sound when I solo over a particular rock or metal song. I got the idea after seeing john 5's effect pedal line up in a guitar magazine. Oh, and Behringer has really great variety in both old and new sounds. However, the multi effects processing can be really limited; its why I tend have backup sounds through other pedals. The deal is you can only use one effect at a time, with only 6 or 7 combination effects (ie delay and phaser). As for an another recomendation, the Whammy is a great choice for trying creating wierd sounds. But don't take my word for it: I haven't actually used it first hand...Heard it though plenty of times. final word: BOSS pedals never fail

I've heard a few multi effects pedals and haven't been impressed. I'm not sure which they were and I might have just heard bad ones... but I'd say go for single stompboxes since they're designed for one job and will probably excell in it.

Even though I have a multieffects processer (via x-mas present), I really have to agree. Especial after testing out those BOSS pedals at Guitar Center 50 million times...

Well yeah, I've never really been insecure of what brand of effect pedals you guys use, I know BOSS is great. I was more thinking about what pedals do you really like, which ones can't you be without (flanger, overdrive, chorus, distortion, delay etc..). Is it to compensate a real good tube amp or is it to bring the amp to maximum? It was more that kind of questions I want answers :)

I just ordered a digitech whammy pedal and am bidding on a Dunlop Crybaby from Hell on ebay. Never tried either of them but my money's burning holes in my pockets so what the hell.

I like the EX-7 from digitech and the weeping demon. I have GNX4 and the pod xt live and they both have pedels on them and they do work fine but I have more control and easier then pulling the big FX processers around. I also like the metal zone for the heavy end sound but the EX-7 does half way decent tone.
