right now im using an epiphone dot, and my amp is a line 6 spider II (i dont need a lecture on my shitty amp ) so ya, i love tom's use of effects, and his cleans sound great, i dont have much money, so id like to keep the budget at like, 500 or so, so give me any suggestions you have, pedals or amps, and try to be specific please, idk what else to say. so ya thanks in advance for the suggestions
PS i saw on musicians friend the Line 6 Pod HD500 on sale, would that be a good if i used it with my amp?

Budget of 500... 500 what? Euros? Dollars? Pounds? Yens? Sticks and stones?

And no, using a multi-fx unit with your current amp isn't a good idea. Modelling amps like the Spider don't take pedals and/or multi-fx units very well.

Well, you could try to find a used Peavey Vypyr Tube 60, for example, and then get the Peavey Sanpera II footswitch.

That way you'd have both a great amp and the effect switches at your feet.

Well I know that currently he's using a combination of some kind of Fender Twin Reverbs and Vox AC30's, as opposed to the Messa/Marshall combination he used to use. But I don't have any experience with these amp's so can't really give any help, plus I don't think they are going to be within budget sadly.

I think it's a sin to plug into a pedal or any effects before plugging into an amp


No joke.

Are you more geared towards AVA or Blink?
Quote by barden1069
A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

Get the Tom Epi guitar, that will give you the Blink and AVA sound.


Not through a spider . The Vypyr tube's effects are much better than the spiders. They are actually good amps not a starter amp. Or you could go for a used JCM900 or the like if you don't need effects much.

Used Valveking for the cleans. If you swap out the speaker (which is a good idea) you're looking at around $200 for a multi-FX; I'd suggest a DigiTech RP500 or a Zoom G3. If you don't do it right away (again, you really should change the speaker) you have closer to $250 for the multi-FX, which gives you just a little bit more leeway.

Also consider the Spider Valve combo, but the vyper FX are better, unless you get a Spider Valve mark II.
