    That comes in a small box, about the size of normal boss pedals. Under $150. Thanks in advance!

    I've always loved this effect when I hear it played yet I have never actually played through one.

    I picked up a cheap Line6 Otto Filter (tone core line) and am actually pretty imressed with the Low Pass tones for $40 used at GC. I am sure others are much better but this will do most of what I needed.

    Ibanez EF, or even an old Boss T-wah. These sound much better than those other 2. They are buffered, and sincy your EF is usually first, this may cause probs with other pedals.

    The 404 and the DrQ sound too "swishy" to me. It depends what sound you are going for, but maybe you should play a few.

    THere are the DOD, Tonefactor, Dr Q set,
    There is the Boss and Ibanez, and Q-Tron set, which is similar to the classic Mutron,
    and there is the MXR.
    All 3 are a little different-sounding.

    I recently picked up a Micro Q-tron for $40 in the Emporium and am very happy with it. It has HP, BP, and LP modes, is very adjustable, compact, and sounds great! Also has a 9V tap, TB switch, an LED, cool graphics…

    Thanks for your input everyone. The Tonefactor makes the most sense size and price wise, but the mxr looks quite variable...In this case i would say maybe the more knobs the better. I havent had any luck in search for the Ibanez. Links? I will most definitely be playing these to really see what they can do
