Hey Guys.. i'm playing guitar for 1 year now

i've got a boss md-2 since few weeks and i don't get a good lead sound.. Can it be that this pedal isn't produced for making solos and so one ? Is it only good for ryhtms?

My Amp : Line 6 Spider 3 15 watt

can it be that my amp is not able to build a good sound with this pedal? it sounds like trash

Do i have to buy a new amp? Which amp would you recommend? (300€ ~)

my guitar : yamaha rgx121 lefthand

Which settings do you use for md-2? (rythm, solo)

thank you

Modeling amp + bad distortion pedal= death to all tone, sorry.
Your best bet is to just use the distortion on the Line 6, if your not happy with your tone, then i think it might be time to get a new amp/

If there's anything to take away from this thread, anything at all, it's to always cup the balls.


Top trolling abilities.

No but modeling amps (like Spiders) don't typically take pedals well. What's your budget and what styles of music do you play?
