The name says it all! Discuss Steve's studios, your studios and gear set-ups, amps and effects here. This is not for discussing guitars (Steve's or otherwise).

Delay would have to be my number 1 effect to have. Then Chorus, I just loves me chorus.

I like delay. It makes a good tone great! Harmonizers are pretty cool too but obviously not essential. :)

Delay/reverb-they both just breathe space into your tone!

A reverb is just a lot of delays ;)

I think my synth like effect on my me-50 then my delay is quiet effective in my playing, i dont use wah much i think it tends to mask nuances in one's playing however thats just what i think, Also chorus is nice with lush sounding voicing's.

:lol:

Reverb is actually a natural factor whether or playing in a bathroom, cubical or concert hall everywhere is surrounding in a natural reverb so in that respect i would'nt even consider it an effect.

at home it would have to be reverb and on stage wah because you dont need reverb onstage reely coz most concert halls have their own reverb

effects are bad i dont really like to use and dont feel that any are must haves (other then distortions ) If i had to pick one it would be an overdriver which is still a distortion .
