Please can anybody help me!! I have a beringher modelling amp and a Boss ME-20 effects pedal. I can't seem to get a good sound out of the effects pedal when I hook it up to my amp. For one, when I am using an effects pedal should my amp be set to a clean sound or should I have overdrive on the amp as well? How do you balance everything to get good tone? Please help, im a newb!

I think I found your problem.

Smash it.

(pit answer)

Actually, it's probably because it's a modeling amp, and not made to accept multieffects well.

And do I need to have drive on the amp also or should I set that to zero?


Never combine a multieffect's distortion with an amp's built in distortion, unless you WANT to sound like ****.

You wanna get a good tone? Buy a decent full valve amp half stack, a series of analog or decent digital pedals, and tweak away. Modeling amps aren't great sounding, nor are multi effects pedals, so in combination, it's gonna suck alot.

It depends on what it is. Don't use a distortion pedal when your amp is on the drive channel

Yes, unless you are going for the most /3R()()TLZ distortion ever.

Yes sir.

Behringer is bad. Modeling amps aren't very well either, and aren't really made to handle much more than a clean guitar, as in, no effects.

A combination of both? You're screwed.

Also, try GG&A, but don't make a new thread, ask a mod to move it.

They'll get round to it, I've already reported your post so that it can be moved.
