Cheap multi-effects pedal for an electric guitar? Yes or no? My amp's effects suck. It only has and overdrive channel. Its impossible to play metal, plus it would be great to have a nice little delay and fuzz to play some Gilmour every once in a while. I can't afford separate dist, o/d, fuzz, delay, chorus, flanger ,wah-wah, etc pedals. I was thinking of something along the lines of a Zoom G1 or something around $100, any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks

You are probably better off to invest in a small Peavy Vypyr or something.

Multi-effect pedals are a yes or no, depending on your amp.

Some of them take Multi FX great, others don't.

You asked the right person though, because I play A LOT of Gilmour.

For Gilmour, you are going to want a nice clean amp, a big muff, an overdrive, a compressor, a delay, and sometimes a Flanger/Phase.

Will be running it through a clean channel. My amp keeps changing, its a long story, so let me not bore you with the details why. Last week it was a Marshall, this week its some cheap brand that I've never even heard of. This is one of the reasons I wan't a good multi fx pedal.
Thx man, long live gilmour.

Unfortunately not. *sigh*
I live in this country called Nepal, I'll be going to the states some time next year. Buying a Peavy is a bad idea for me, especially cause getting one would mean I would have to order it from outside and due to taxes and other things (like dealer profit), and the amp would set me back by $200-250. Besides that, it would take six months to get it

$100? Try the Digitech RP90. Its 100 brand new and it has lots of nice amp models and effects. The RP can do all the effects mentioned by JOE^^^^. Check out some of my stuff to hear it in action. Hope you find what you're looking for.

Will check it out. Thx for the suggestion man

The why part is not important. Right now, I have this amp called, "Stranger" or something like that. It has an okay clean sound, but I wouldn't touch its overdrive. It sounds like the speaker is cracked. I ran it through a friends Zoom G1, and I thought, "Wow, I need one of those"
I've run through Randalls (Some KH model, I think its some sort of Kirk Hammett Sig Amp or something), Marshalls (many, all of which, really suck) and Strangers(never have I seen such a bad amp). That's life in Nepal. I'm trying to make the best of my situation.

Sadly, no. There is only an input and output jack
EDIT: The marshalls do, though

Can you try the pedals out anywhere? Or do you have to order them?

There's this place that sells pedals. The Zoom G1 and G2 is popular here. If I want something else, I have to order it. It takes less time with pedals.

If you can get a used PODXt or XT Live you can setup output to work with most amps regular input. You should be able to find the POD for anywhere from $75 up. Personally I love line 6 stuff but I have a variax and have to keep some around just for that!

Go take your amp there and see if the zoom g1 sounds good with it.

Alrite man, thx for the help

I can vouch for the RP70, which is the RP90 without the built in expression pedal. :P

It's pretty good, but most of the effects are sub-par to the single effect alternatives.

RP90 because of the expression pedal. From what I can see the ZOOM has a lot of the same amp models but I think you can get a lot more out of the RP90 if you have the patience to wait for shipping or whatever.
