I'm not much for effects.
I have a box of effect pedals that I use on rare occasions.
I recently bought a DI so I could electrify my banjo.
It works great through the PA using an XLR connection.

It was an auto wah by Boss.
Don't recall the model.

If I pick quickly it has a very funky sound much like in Papa was a
I can get a huge variety of sounds from just one setting.

( I hate the auto wha -so boring). YMMV
