    Just as the tilte says !
    I'm tired of the pedals, batteries, noise, etc,etc.
    Can someone suggest a nice mid priced unit that will do the following:

    let me set it up so whatever song I'm doing, all i gotta do is hit a foot switch and I get that effect.
    Example: The song Heaven & Hell, I use a little reverb, chorus, and when needed a delay for a portion of the lead.

    Can this be had?

    I don't know if this is any use but have you tried a Vox tonelab?

    It's not rackmounted i realise, they're preeetty cheap in the UK, i've used one for recording twice now which convinced me to buy one for live use (especially for when sharing another bands amp!)

    If I remember, Lou uses several pedals. I presume for multiple effects. Since I have thought about rack mounts...... can the rack mount give the combinations that a half dozen pedals can give?

    The G Major has 16 effects including EQ that you can set up in 8 blocks and in any order you want. It also has a built in tuner and I would recommend you use the optional footswitch as well. It can also be controlled via midi.

    I highly recommend it.

    OK, If I understand this correctly, I'm gonna set up 2 "pre-sets" both being the same ,Chorus and little Reverb on one and on the 2nd one i'm also gonna add the Delay. During the song , when it comes time for the lead, i can hit the 2nd foot switch, it will give me the delay and when i'm done i can go back to just Chrous and Reverb ?
