I'm looking to start playing a lot more punk-rock (influenced by Green Day, The Offspring, Fall Out Boy etc.). What kind of amps and F X pedals would you guys reccomend?

^^ TROLLING

Real thing:

I GOT A DOD PUNKIFIER.
yay me.














HXC


THERE IS A DEMO CLIP IN MY PROFILE!

I try to cover as many tones as i can.
Also, the pedal is much less compressed in real life.

I hear the Jonas Brothers and Fall Out Boy use Marshall MGs. That would suit what you're after perfectly

I was joking about something serious.
The DOD Deathmetal Distortion is what my friend uses in his Punk Band And It Is not too bad with proper EQing.

I don't really like the Jonas Brother....they're not very talented.

Plus, they're not real punk like the bands i mentioned.

But is that true about FOB?
I don't know man....i really don't want to spend all that much money.

Death metal pedal?
I have the Grunge pedal and it's horrible.
But then it's called the "Grunge" pedal, so it wouldn't really be good for punk now would it?
#7
Both Punk and Deathmetal are both inspired by Grunge lately but maybe you are using the Grunge pedal wrong?
Did you check if you pluged it in correctly?
#8
I did.

I even tried adjusting the settings on the online interactive demo Digitech has on their page....but everytime i try the settings i like....THIS image appears.

WTF?

The grunge pedal is for grunge man. You'll need another pedal to handle punk.
#11
With the kind of "punk" you're listneing to, then a horrible cranked overdrive on a Marshall MG should do...

I'm not sure you did wire it up correctly.
Does your amplifier have a Line-in?

And It looks like your parents have baned you from having good tone.
Keep trying random passwords untill the saftey locks are off.
My Fender blender was made before parents gave a **** what tone their kids had so I am safe.

I don't know man....

The pedals that are named after their genres are Death Metal, Grunge, Metal Zone, Metal Core, Screamin Blues.

No one cares about us hxc punk dudes.

I mean there is one pedal....but i don't know if it would work for punk....

Pushing the MG really helps the tubes and makes the sound so much better.

You jerks from the postofficerock thread can diss punk rock all you want.
Some of us think tone is important no matter the genre you play.

Yeah with valve amps you have to crank them before they sound good. My MG is great once I get it past 5

Yeah I keep my Mids at 0 and Treble and Bass at around 9/10 for a really good distortion sound. Possibly the only thing I've heard rival it is my 100 watt Spider III.

Some people have said Boss Metalcore can do punk well.

I don't know...
If it could, wouldn't they have advertized it as Boss metlacore/hardcore punk?

I dunno.
#28
I heard some boutique company over in UTAH USA makes some Boss Distortion modellers.

How about a Punkifier, I can't remember who makes them, but I think I recently saw someone on here who bought one... I was hoping they would make a NPD with a review, but I haven't seen one yet...

I have one of those at Home!

I didn't know anyone else here had one.
It's an old pedal....can it do these recent punk tones?

I'll show you a picture...tell me if it's the same?

I personally use a Strat plugged into a 65amps Soho through a Timmy Overdrive, Klon Centaur and Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret. Harmony Central FX told me to buy them. Sometimes I use my 1930s National Duolian resonator too which works surprisingly well.

I'm not sure, I think the guy who had one was posting about it in the 'Gear for Post Rock' thread. Maybe you should hang out in there a little bit and see if you can get a review from him there. I'd love to see a picture, and get a little review from you though.

I was curious as to what Dexter used to get his sound, seems the Mesa MK 4 keeps comin up.

Punk Rock to me is all about flavor and attitude. Haters hate, thats what they do. FOB and BLink-182 are great bands when your in the mood, so check out thier setups. I see a lot of hollow bodied guitars on punk gutarists. Rancid, Blink-182 and a few others. Stump plays an SG, so I suppose any guitar will work. Modern high gain turned down a bit should be fine, like an Orange head, or a Vox Nighttrain.

As far as pedals go, check out a DS-1, classic, timeless, and equally hated. You could look into the valve dist from the Digi Hardwire series, or just find a good amp that has that modern distortion your after.

IMO however, Punk is more about how you play, and what you play, rather than what your playing with. Thats bot to say that you wont sound silly with a Death-Core tone, stay in your genre anyhow, but Punk defines itself.
