K well bassicly in time imma be getting either new or used randall RG amp.. along with another guitar..either schecter or ibanez...for my low tunings... Now it's onto the pedals..

I play metal..hard rock...punk..some nice cleans.. so here is what i was thinking

On my line 6 i've found out i like using chorus flange alot..sooo..

-Chorus Pedal(Recommend me one plz)
-Tuner (korg pitchblack or boss chromatic tuner)
-Possibly a volume pedal(Another reccomendation..but cheap)
-Possibly a dimebag wahh

Distortion:

-AMT Electronics DU HAST Distortion
-AMT Electronics Extreme III Distortion


I play lamb of god..slipknot..rammstein...green day...amon amarth...amorphis ect ect

I will play all tunings (from Standard to drop A)

I don't care about price atm.. i'm just making a wishlist that i will purchase over time

Any more recommendations would be greatly appreciated as long as it suits this stuff.. i may also get a delay pedal.. still deciding.

Thanks,

MetalGuitarest

Here are a few volume pedals:

A few OD pedals:

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-TS9-Tube-Screamer-Effects-Pedal-Original-Reissue?sku=150284

As far as OD/distortion goes, make sure you try the amp first. You may find you don't even need one. I thought i was going to need an OD for my RM80, but now that i have it, i don't need one. The 1087 module gives me more than enough gain. If the amp your looking at doesn't have a good distortion channel, then look into something else. Why buy something that needs a pedal to sound good?

A must have:

EQ?

As far as flange, phaser, and chorus go, maybe try a MXR or Boss. Maxon has a few pedals that might be nice:

Good Luck.

Hmm its not as crazy sounding as a eh small clone (or is it stone? Hmm...) But its the only one I've ever really had...I use it for making my guitar sound like its double tracked in a live situation which it does really well

behringer making killer stuff that is just funny

and for pedals check out the electro-harmonix and t-rex pedals
as they are making a whole range of pedals with tubes
which gives you tone lots of great tonality

thanks for above links... i completely forgot about the noise pedal.lol


No problem

The ISP literally "decimates" the noise. With the G string version, you can run it through the front of your amp, as well as the FX loop, if you have one.

The EQ just helps you shape your tone. You might not need it as well. But if you get the amp and find it hard to eq it right, an eq pedal might help.

good luck.

eq pedals tightens your tone up to bring out certain frequencies
as well as try and level the output of those frequencies

would it just be cheaper to buy a line 6 POD XT LIVE ????

It would be cheaper, but i'm not so sure about the quality of the effects. If you know exactly what pedals you want, then you should just get the individual pedals. It will be more expensive, but you will likely have better quality equipment.

Wait till you get your amp to decide what FX you want. I was thinking the same way you are when i was looking into a new amp. I had an entire list of pedals i wanted to get, but once i got the amp, i found out i didn't really need all the FX. All i really need is a delay, reverb, and noise reducer (which i have already). So wait till you play the amp to decide what pedals you actually need.

But it is good to have an idea of what you want b4 you buy it. I'm like that too. I will usually have plan to get something like a month to a year b4 i can get it, and it goes through like five changes throughout that time period. The RM80 i have right now was supposed to be a RM100 half stack.

Anyway, the line 6 will give you many FX, but i can't say much about the quality. I know the mulit-FX unit i had wasn't that good. It gave me an idea of what i wanted, but wasn't as good as the individual pedals.

good luck.

Well if you can get the money, look into the Randall MTS series. You can get pretty much all those tones in one amplifier. It just depends on what modules you get. And there are several people who can mod them for you to sound 100% better.

You might be able to find a used RM50 for a decent price. I have the RM80, which is the discontinued 212 version of the RM50, and it is awesome. My 1087 module is incredible; perfect for low tunings and the heaviest of metal. The 1087 is Pete's mod to the 1086.

good luck.
