Okay guys, now that I've sorta narrowed down my wah pedal that I'm going to get. (still working on finding that distortion/overdrive) what is like a small basic setup (like distortion+wah+w/e else?) that someone like me (first time buying pedals cause I finally got a tube amp and trashed my line 6 spider) Yeah I'm a total noob at this and sorry if there is already an ultimate gear building guide or something ;(.

Edit: I have an old DS-1 already but don't seem too satisfied with it. (so while I'm at it on this thread... suggest a distortion so I can try it out at the store when I go)

well then, firstly do you like your amp's overdrive and if not why, also what amp is it

secondly what do you want your distorted sound to sound like

I want a saturated guitar sound... sometimes I want it to sound natural and sometimes unnatural? I got a Jet City stack thing, the overdrive is good and all, but I need something else to give it that punch.

well, if you just need a bit of a punch you can buy an od pedal to use as a clean boost which will drive your tubes harder. Something like a tube screamer might do the trick

Okay, but I still have my question of what do you think a basic setup would be...?

guitar>wah> dist/od> delays>chorus/reverbs

this belongs in GGA however. I'll report it so it gets moved to the proper sub-forum


Thank you, sorry I didn't know where it was supposed to be.
