    I had a TC Electronic Flashback that I could use as a pretty useful chorus for bass (with a highpass filter and analog dry through). It could also be used as a looper.

    I'm quite "clam", just dislike misleading, generic posts that do more to confuse than help. The new Digitech RP360s are really nice too, not sure about the RP50, I would expect that to be of the same vintage as the Zooms you dislike. And why bother with one of those when you can get one of the newer, much improved ones for just a little more.

    I used to have an RP50. The amp models didn’t.

    I knew a guy that had a Nissan once, it was slow and drank gas, I don't recommend them.

    just making a point about generalizing

    Probably already mentioned, but a wah pedal need not be moved while playing. It can be treated as a foot controlled tone pedal, which you set as desired whenever you want.

    I give this advice to all pedal NOOBZ. NOOBZ is a good thing, not a bad thing, enjoy the journey. Pick up a used multi-effect pedal a couple of generations removed for $50 - $100. Find out which effects you like and complement your playing. Find your tone. When you find tones in the multi-effect that speak to you, then explore them even deeper. You might also find out you don't like pedals at all, Angus doesn't use any. The important thing is to enjoy the journey and explore all the instrument can offer you.

    That's great advice, as well as having some sort of modeler on hand for headphone-only practice or additional tonal exploration.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

    I was going to suggest same. With a good modeler you usually get well enough effects for try out as well. That's good place to start.

    Used multi fx....I agree on that. Check locally and see what's in your area, many of them are generally decent.

    for pedals with cool tricks, the old duncan deja vu delay... if you set the delay time to zero, you can use the analog modulation to get chorus/univibe/leslie type sounds. you can also use it as a looper up to 20 seconds

    Yes. And if you get one with an adjustable sweep, such as the Jerry Cantrell JC95 Crybaby, it's even more versatile. I knew I wanted that one the moment I saw a good demo of it. Glad I finally have one.

    i dunno if its supposed to do anything in particular, but the flanger hoax can get some pretty extreme sounds that ive never heard when i play with its self-oscillation.

    Its not exactly affordable since its vintage (although I got mine at a swap meet for $25) but my 70's Morley Power Wah Fuzz has some pretty unique features I haven't seen before. By default the pedal works like a volume pedal, when you click on the Fuzz the pedal acts like a blend between your dry signal and the wet signal, which is useful since the thing doesn't have a way to lower the Fuzz sound its always full on, and its a weird kind of fuzz that reminds me a lot of early synthesis like on an Atari. Then when you turn the wah circuit on it overrides the volume/blend function of the pedal and works like a wah that has a large smooth sweep and works great with guitar or bass. I know they reissued one as a Cliff Burton Signature but I have no experience with it, that being said I do know they are different in a couple ways but if you can find one of those used, it would certainly be cheaper than the vintage model.
