I feel like there should be a bare minimum of knowledge required to post here... *sigh*

Yes, you can use a pedal with that amp. You can use a pedal with any amp. Of course you will need two leads.

you can but it will not sound that good, as the frontman isn't realy the best of amps
all amps will take pedals, solid state (except for something like a roland jazz chorus) and modeling amps tend not to take pedals well

As already mentioned, you can use any pedal on any amp. You'll need a cable to go from the guitar to the pedal, and another to go from the pedal to the input on the amp.

Yes you will need two leads. Also, it won't sound good because putting an effect through a solid state amp that already has built in effects anyway, outside of generally missing the point, won't have impact enough on the sound for it to be worth the cash

Well sorry, I only usually use clean tones so I didn't have any knowledge of pedals as I didn't want nor need pedals at that time.

I don't think he was talking about you. A lot of us don't mind questions like this, it's the answers that get posted that sometimes make us wonder.

Says who? Even if the amp has those effects built-in, adding something else in the chain WILL have an effect.

Don't tell me that adding a distortion pedal in front of this amp won't have an effect.

Yeah, sorry. That was worded poorly.

Not directed at you TS...I'm not a fan of vague answers that don't do anything other than raise that user's post count.

Modulation pedals, wah, EQ's, delays, reverbs etc all will sound decent through the amp. Just don't try overdrives, boosts, fuzz and distortion.



Right thats good because there is already a very good distortion unit in-built to the amp .
#20
Also can anyone reccomend any good effects pedals (excluding overdrive, fuzz and distortion) ?
#21
any sound in particular you're looking for? Delays are always fun.
Epiphone Dot
DIY Esquire w/Neovin Power Rock pickup
Vox AC30VR 212
Arion MTE-1 (LED clipping diodes added)
Vox Tonelab LE
Roland SDE1000 delay

In a Wah-Wah pedal the sound used in the background guitar during the riff in George Harrisons song Wah Wah, and the delay in Welcome to The Jungle Intro.
