hi, i have marshall avt150 combo(pease don't blame me for my amp ,ican't upgrade it)and i'm planning to buy some pedals.i want a thrash tone and a lead tone(boosting the amp over dirve)
i've planned to buy a boss ns2- a crybaby 535q and want to buy a hardwire tl2 for my thrash tone,but i don't know how to get a good lead tone
i'm buying from proguitarshop and i wanna buy around 400$ to gain free shipping. and i can buy one more pedal for my solo boost so any suggestions please for a pedal around 100$?also i have a boss ds2 will it help?i think i must buy one of these:a compressor(like dyna comp or custom comp from mxr) or an eq(mxr 10 band or 6 band) or an overdrive like bad monkey or tubescreamer or some thing else?

upgrade the amp. the pedals will pretty much be a waste of money with that amp.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

ah

from my experience, it didn't really like being boosted (though i seem to remember from trying it that it liked a tubescreamer better than an sd1), so maybe try a pedal through the clean channel? just from what i remember, the sound would cut out and stuff if you tried to boost the od channels (though from what i can remember, it didn't do this as badly with a ts).

Just use your GNX4's stomps to boost it. Make sure that your amp models are set to "direct" so you have no cabs or amp modeling, and use the stomp boxes. Your not going to get much by spending all that money on pedals.

Out of all that stuff you listed you'd probably only see an improvement with the 535Q wah. IIRC the GNX4 has a Sparkle Drive stomp that sounds pretty decent that you can adjust from clean to dirty boost.

get yourself a good distortion pedal and run it through the clean channel. hopefully you have the footswitch to change channels. if so then you can switch to the dirt channel. use that as your boost. run it fairly clean but with a little dirt and that will provide your lead sound. i'd recommend either an EH Metal Muff or a Digeteck Hardwire metal distortion.

yeah, but as i said, it doesn't really like being boosted.

You do realise that Dave just mentioned that the AVT doesn't like being boosted... so why are you going to try something that others have told you will sound bad?

Honestly, a solo boost doesn't mean that you MUST SOUND louder than the rest of the band. If your tone is already saturated to hell with gain, adding more volume only saturates your gain further, pushing you further back into the mix.

A solo boost should create the perception that you ARE louder than the rest of the band. Get something like an EQ to drive the mids up. When you boost mid frequencies it helps you sing "above and in front of the band", creating the perception that you're more prominent than the rest of the band.

However be careful that when you use an EQ, you'll also be increasing any background or white noise in the frequencies you are hiking up.

because i think your bad is our excelent! here no one plays rock/metal music ecxept we 5 people and we listened no other tones, so i think if we go from a multieffect to some pedals we will have a better tone although a very small upgrade but we must listen to it no way,
i've searched the best markets in this country but didn't find any mesas peaveys,even used , and just a used avt so i must be happy,very happy
by the way i must mention that rock and metal music is banned in this country and we are playing just for ourselves so i ope you can see how we live
