Anyone give me any advice on which to buy? I was looking at the zoom gx1 and the g7.1ut also any other recomendations as I dont wanna spend a load of money on individual pedals.

stay away from the g1 is all im gonna say, i got 1 and they are really bad and make a lot of background noise so the 7.1 would be better in my opinion.

Edit: but do you really need everything on them? Coz ive started to change to single pedals now and im just buying what i need.

multi fx = waste of money if you ever want a good tone in the future.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

go with the zoom g2.1u. it is awesome... tone is surprisingly good too. i have one, and most of my friends who have tried it have sold their old multi fx pedals to get a zoom. really, i don't think you can go wrong with a zoom... just stay away from the old 505's and such...

I disagree.

The Zoom G9.2tt is a great Multi Unit. Two Tubes controlling overall tone, and drive, a 3d multi expression pedal. Ive used one, heard it giged (Gutarist in my band has one). The only downside to a multi-unit (the primary reason that I dont own one, anymore) is lack of "On the Fly Options".

If preset one has three built in effects, how do you change them on the fly. Like instead of using chorus on the solo, maybe you want a flanger, or a phase shifter, or a sweep echo?

Thats why I like pedals. I like the spirit of spontinaity moving my feet on stage.

Im not using it for the amp models btw, just reverb delay flange etc as it works out cheaper. Should have mention earlier..

You've never heard a TC Electronics multi effects unit then have you?

TS, what's your budget? Look into a used G Major if you can afford it.

you arent gonna get much for that much you may want to save some money and get a quality multi effect, cheap multieffects truly are crap, but if you spend the money it is worth it

The Zoom G9.2tt sells way under that on ebay. I saw one go for 220 US. Id keep my eye on em.

The Boss ME-70 and GT-Series arent bad, but not as good as the ZOOM.
