What amp do you have?

Boss TU is a great tuner

-Gibson LP VM
-Silvertone Kentucky Blue
-MXR CC Delay
-Ibanez TS-9
-Egnater Rebel 20
-Avatar 1x12

My rig is simple
Haha. UG's Chuck just said chuck. haha
You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.

Depends entirely on the songs you play, the sound you are after and what you currently feel you are lacking. None of which is clear from your original post (save for the wah and tuner).

You should decide what effects you want, not we. It's your sound..

If you don't know what to get, don't get anything at all. It's pretty dumb to buy pedals just 'because you're supposed to have pedals'.

im not askin what to buy im askin what are the normal pedals for metal

you said you wanted to make a pedal board. how else are you going to get the pedals? making them out of play doh?

what are you currently running as your rig?

HACHEDIT: Never mind the pedals. get a new amp.

Need to get rid of that spider... You could get a Vypyr to stay with modeling and improve your sound(a little bit).

This sig is colored just to annoy the UG classic users.

Trying to think of witty things to put in my sig. Message if you have ideas.

You have a squier strat and a spider 3, I wouldn't be worried about pedals untill you get a good tube amp and solid guitar. Most metal players have a noise gate, wah, Overdrive, EQ, and delay.

Compressor too, along with rhoads' post.

I agree that you should get a new amp/guitar first though. Especially the amp, digital city!

i like my behringer v-tone amp. its not really much of a step up from a spider (actually its cheaper) but with my schecter and ds1, it sounds brutal

You traded him a sword for the guitar? You do realize that a smart person would just agree to the trade, take the sword, slay you with it, keep all of the loot and call it a day, right?

....What are they teaching you kids in school these days?!
