    So I got 4 pedals this week!!!made me realize that I shouldnt buy any for a while BUT really enjoying these 4 pedals:

    Mayo
    Timefactor
    MXR Dime Distortion
    535q wah(true bypassed)

    Mayo - man...I have never had more fun playing Cherub Rock(nuff said)

    Timefactor - whoa this thing really really blows my mind.....so much potential...so many sounds....from all the typical delay sounds to some crazy but very usable modulation effects.....coming up wiht some nice tunes with this pedal...will never replace my memory man for its analog delay tho

    the Dime Distortion - the end to my metal pedal needs, this thing is an a brutal metal pedal....as close to the trendkill sound as Ive gotten, esp with an eq to fine tune details.......just wish it was smaller

    535q-4 years ago i bought this wah and sold it once i heard about other wahs and boutique wahs....tried many many wahs...but the 535 sound has been stuck in my head for far too long....true bypassed and LED added...its the wah sound I've always wanted...

    And I got most of these for great prices, did I mention that my mayo is a smashed pumpkin!!!:D

    But seriously, I think I'm done buying pedals for now!!

    Yo man,
    The whammy is working out pretty great man...I had this one whammy idea in my head and thats why i was after it....whammy plus delay = steve vai vibes!!!

    But im having a blast playing the whammy in pantera songs.....I am very very close to my version of the perfect pedalboard:BEER

    The 535q can cop many many sounds....describing a wah is difficult...but if I had to...I would says its very vomitty....many wahs i tried before were vocal in a refined way...this is not refined....very versatile as well..Im getting satch sounds,hammett wah sounds(love his wah usage in bleeding me),zakk wylde(15 on the B-string bend,vibrato like crazy,take the wah halfway and cock it back and then hit the vibrato as u gradually cock the wah forward.....i tell ya man...zakk wylde signature)...gotta try the robin trower sounds.....i might get a vox sometime cos both are worth having...different beasts:cool:

    Someone gave up a smashed pumpkin Mayo? Damn! Good for you, of course, but, damn.

    I can't imagine giving mine up----it still makes me smile every time I step on it.
