I've been looking around and it seems that the cost of a multieffects pedal makes more fiscal sense than just buying a single pedal that focuses on one effect. What are the advantages of having a single pedal with one effect? The cost of a multieffects pedal isn't much more than a single from what i've seen. What are your experiences?

multi effects pedals do lots of effects at mediocre quality
single effects pedals do one effect well

With some exceptions, better sound fidelity, and much more specific control over the circuit.

That being said, multifx are amazing for anyone playing live who needs to use lots of effects, or for a guitarist who only uses a certain effect every once in a while (eg, you kind of dig chorus, kind of dig tremolo, but you only use them once a month or so, would make it best to get a multifx.

There are exceptions to this though.. most of the Line 6 Multifx pedals are pure class.

There's no comparing here, if you got the budget buy single effects and build up your pedal board, there is no multi effect in the world that can give you that quality

I actually build my own pedal. So in that way, I can have crappy AND individual pedal.
Sorryz for me bad engrish.

if you're just starting out with effects-just buy single pedals when you need them-that way you learn about each effect as you go along-instead of having them all dumped on you at once-then you just end up using default settings.

Just a suggestion

Cheap multi effects pedals do lots of effects at mediocre quality
Good (wich often means expensive) single effects pedals do one effect well

Ok. I think i would either get reverb, compression, or delay first. I was told the that combination is heavily used in neoclassic metal. Now i play a bunch of different styles so those effects could be used for more than one style.
