Sup dudes I have a peavey studio pro 112 as much as it is a good amp I can't get the sound I want out of it so I wanted to get a modeling amp recently my friend said I should get a multi effects board and I'm confused about what I want to get what should I get and what do you recommend?

Well it really depends. If you know what sound you are aiming for, forget modeling amps or multieffects and save up for a serious amp you will like. If you are still looking for your sound, I'd recommend that multieffects pedal over a modeling amp. Get a Line 6 POD500 (or another version of the POD, depending on your budget). I have been using it for a while now and I am very content with what sounds I can dial in there it's great even for gigging.

My answer is exactly the same as this, except I'd usually recommend the Zoom G5 for no reason other than preference.

Hi John,

I have owned a Boss GT-6 and I recently used an HD500x, and I now use pedals and an amp. In my opinion, the amp is a better way to go in the long run. I only used my GT-6 for a few months and sold it. Having an amp and a custom pedalboard IS more expensive, but it is 100% better. Depends if you are in it for the long run, or short.

Not when it comes to modeling. Most think the HD500 kicks the GT-100's arse when it comes to that. Which is best when combined with a good tube amp - well, that's where the division lies.

I had a positive experience using a digitech rp350 for a few years while i was deciding on my sound. it will save you money in the long run because it can emulate every type of pedal. it will also help you figure out which effects you actually use, and which ones you don't need.

A modelling amp? Really?
In my experience modelling amps can be fun to mess around with, not to play music with. When you've got like 20 effects in £100 amp when the real pedals cost that much each, there must be something wrong. And there is. The chorus sounds like cats wailing in the background, the phaser makes your guitar sound like a jet engine, the tremolo makes it sound like a burglar alarm...
The same problem could apply to multi effects boards.
For the price of a good enough effects board, you could buy yourself a decent amp and one or two pedals which you'll actually use.
It depends on what you plan on doing with it. Practice, gigging, recording?
What's your budget?

honestly i think you need to do a little more thinking. i wouldn't advise a MFX guitar amp other than the vypyr tube 60 (discontinued since the vypyr came out).

as far as MFX units go verses individual pedals, there are a million things. the benefit of the MFX route is that you can set your tone for something and get instant recall of that setting with your foot. one switch or maybe two. you can add tons of presets for anything. with single pedals, if you get good (read GOOD) pedals i have found that they sound better, but IF you have to change several pedals at once, tap dancing sucks. its doable, not as good though.

it just depends what you want out of it.

You never will, except for Zappp but he doesn't count because he started UG. Aside from him, Nov 2001 is the earliest possible join date because of a screw up when we all had to recreate our accounts.

I would like to suggest multi effects board for your use. It is more depends on the sound you are going to listen.

I am going to say multi FX - I have tried a few but the hd500x was the best to my ears, I prefer them over tube or modeling amps but not all the time, Personally If I had to pick over multi FX or an amp I would pick a multi FX .
