    Wah for sure.
    Reverb unless your amp has great reverb.

    What's missing?...
    a borderline OCD person (think Sheldon Cooper, Monica Geller, or me) to organize the cables :D:D:D

    You’ve got everything in there I’d want except for a Wah and I also like a reverb. Maybe a Fuzz too.

    You already have a lot of bases covered there. Really going to come down to what you think you might need or even want to try.

    I'd add a wah but if you ask me next week I might tell you you don't need one.

    I got it because it does vocoder too. Talk box sounds are pretty good. Vocoder sounds are just ok. It was like 120 bux.

    Plug mic into it mike cable out if it to PA. Plug guitar into it and do the thing.

    Wah and Univibe are the two I'd be thinking about.

    Your board looks cool and I’m sure it does the job you need it to do.

    I just saw a CL ad for a Friedman BE OD. That would cover a lot of rock territory. Unfortunately I won't be able to buy til next month. Hopefully it will still be there.

    @amstratnut
    BE-OD is has been my main Rock Lead and 80’s sound for about 2 years now. (I’m not sure if this one counts) It has a ridiculous amount of distortion on tap. I got tired of messing with it so I set every thing to noon and just adjust the volume and roll with it.... it’s just a awesome pedal. If you can find one at a price you can live with buy it.

    I vote for a wah as well. I never used a wah much...maybe a song or two on a given night, but it was fun when I decided to use it. I could have lived without it, but it was sure fun to have :).

    Fuzz came in handy at times too, though I always found it a challenge to keep it heard in the mix.

    I had a wah that I never used. I gave it to my son, who lives at home. If needed I can still borrow his.

    As far as reverb, I rarely use it. I prefer a delay mixed down low for ambiance. Both my amps have digital reverb that I use extremely sparingly.

    You need at least 3 more overdrive pedals on there. Or, at least I would.
