ok basically I am looking at getting a stomp box for christmas, ideally the Boss OD 3, i hate the amp i have and am looking to get one next year

but I still have a question

those who have played a line 6, as u know it has 4 different channels, clean, crunch, metal, insane etc

basically, when I plug the pedal into the amp, does it just work from the amp? or do i have to keep changing the channels on the amp

also, do FX pedals work with Line 6 15 Watt? stupid question I know but I'm a noob with pedals and effects and shit lmao

cheers

I wouldn't start investing in pedals until you get a new amp. Spiders don't take pedals well (meaning that they sound like poo when you try to use external effects).

As above. Spiders hate any effects, apart from their own. It's like they're xenophobic.

Eurgh. No. Just no. Did you hear that buzz!? It also sounded very, very digitised. It was horrid.

It's recorded on some shitty camera so it's gonna sound like crap.


And TS pedals will work with it of course, most of the fools here would have you believe pedals kill themselves if you put them into a moddeling amp ¬_¬

invest into new amp, new pedals won't make it sound better

the youtube link sounded horrible

Ignoring all the ongoing discussion about FX pedals into modeling amps...

You said that you hate your amp. Getting a pedal is just a small patch for what seems to be a big problem. I say save your money and get that new amp first. Then, if you STILL don't like your tone, look for pedals such as that Boss overdrive to SHAPE your tone. Having a good amp as the foundation for a good tone is the best route to take.

Effects pedals work independantly from the amp (Unless it's a controller pedal that's made for the amp, like the sanpera I and sanpera II for the Peavey vypyr).

So let's say you have a distortion pedal plugged into your amp. And the amp is on a clean channel. When you turn the distortion pedal on, the amp STAYS ON THE CLEAN CHANNEL, but the sound that comes out of the speaker is distorted because the distortion pedal distorts the signal (instead of the amp).

Hope this helps.
