i have a fender squier a nd a front man 15w do i still need a distortion pedel to play with a rock distorted sound in it, because when i put the drive -select the distortion isn't the best ......... if i buy a boss metal zone or a pedel will it sound any better...?


thanks
>.<

You should really think about just upgrading the amp entirely, putting a pedal through a cheap SS amp won't give you much.. Especially a Metal Zone.

If you're considering dropping the cash on a pedal, save said money and try to get a better amp.

from 6 years of experience with the amp, no pedal will give you a brilliant distortion. A metal zone would probably be fine though it.

Kinda, sorta, yeah. But don't buy the pedal.

The amp you have is a starter amp. If you want a better sound, running a mediocre distortion pedal through it isn't going to improve your overall sound. If you're willing to drop almost $100 on a pedal and a cable to run it with, you should seriously consider saving your money and upgrading your amp to something with a better sound.

Also, just because you aren't good now doesn't mean you won't be three year, three months, or three weeks from now. And being a shoddy guitarist doesn't preclude you from having decent gear. A good amp will go farther for you in the long run than a decent-ish pedal and a starter amp. A lot farther.

May I also try to convince you not to buy a pedal? Here's the reason why.

The Digitech Death Metal costs at about 50 euros (40 something dollars?). If you manage to get some more money and go for a really honest amp like a Vox VT, or a Roland Cube or a Peavy Vypyr (all of them cost at about 100 euros - 90 something dollars?) you won't be disappointed.

All of these moddeling amps come with a bunch of presets, from low gain to high gain. I have the Roland Cube 20X and I can assure you it's more than enough to me for metal. Hell, I've recently dialed down the distortion!

All I'm saying is first obtain a nice all-around amp even if it costs double than the pedal, and then start thinking about pedals... Maybe some presets on these amps will fit you just fine...

1 euro = US $1.20
so 50 euros isnt 40 something dollars, its 60, 100 euros - 120 dollars.

Sorry my bad, I had altered the currency converter...

But still, it's better to pay some extra money to get a really worthy amp than get a pedal that might not do as well as it was supposed to.

Now if he can test the pedal to the actual frontman, it's all up to his ears...
