Most guitarists when thet start out, come to a stage where they have got themselves a decent guitar, an amp and they feel that they are ready to show the world their skills (even though they don't have any.) In order for him to form a band (with a crappy drummer, a bassist who has his guitar so low that he can't even reach the strings, and a singer who gives you migraines with his talentless voice) and start touring the world playing their punk rock powerchords and jamming out horrible versions of Smells Like Teen Spirit, he feels that he needs some effects.
Trust me, I've been there.
Well this article will help you get a decent array of pedals to begin your world domination... Before you start out, you should have an idea of what types of effects you are gonna need.
If you want lots of effects to try and sound like Tom Morello, and you want to buy: flanger, phaser, octave, distortion, wah wah, whammy, delay, chorus, tremolo pedals (I could go on for ever,) then I suggest you get a multi effects pedal which will cost you 100 - 600 pounds. These pedals come with all the effects in built. I suggest the Korg AX10G for beginners which cost 100 pounds and the Boss GT8 for more advanced players which costs 500 pounds. I am not a big fan of multi effects pedals because they can be complicated and they may sound a bit too digital but in this case, it is better than spending thousands of pounds on single effects and giving your parents heart pains.
If you want a simpler set up (which I prefer,) then I suggest that you buy individual effects because they have a much nicer tone and are simpler. I reccomend getting a pedal boad wich 5 to 6 pedals.

These Are The Pedals That I Recommend:
This set up is my perfect pedal board. You may want to add a few pedals (A chorus pedal for example) but these are pedals that are really useful.
