Hello everyone!

If i would describe my music taste it would be rock.
I just love Queens of the stone age and such.

The problem if i want to play their songs is that i dont get that rock sound.
I do have an AMP with a distorcion, GLX MG-10 wich is a very basic AMP.
It sounds perfect in Clear. But when i turn the Clear to Distorcion, it just buzzes and stuf..

So i was thinking, what if i get a Distorcion effect peddle and put my AMP on clear, il have that rock sound?

Do you think this will work?
If so, what ''rock'' pedel should i get?
Price range max 80 euros.


Sorry for bad grammar,
Thanks for the time.

One of these?



You mean a pedal. What you want is a distortion (not distorcion) pedal, (if not a new amp). It would work (on the clean channel,. not the "clear" channel), but perhaps you should go out and try a few to see what you like. Only one I ever liked was a Line6 Uber metal. But I really don't like distortion pedals.

Save money, get a nice new amp.

That would be a "paddle".

I know how to spell it

If he had spelled it correctly like "paddle" I wouldn't have asked "One of these?". The question would be obsolete, and I would have made a simple statement such as "You need one of these".

Anyway, my joke was probably in poor taste anyway. Couldn't help myself, but I did offer my thoughts and not just my bad sense of humor.

True...And you were right, it definitely sounds like he needs a new amp.

If you've only been playing for 2 weeks, you don't need to worry about distortion yet.

Stick with a clean sound and learn the basic chords and scales. With a clean sound you'll be able to hear if you aren't getting them right more easily. Learning with distortion at such an early stage could hide a lot of errors which will prevent you from improving.

Seriously, you don't need to think about playing with distortion for a long time yet.

This is the advice I never wanted to hear as a starting guitarist, but very true.

Set your amp on clean and get a small multifx like the RP155 that has a drum machine. Then practice with the drums. If your amp is horrible you can use headphones.
