Punk / Pop Punk friends! I am a drummer who now has started playing guitar for a year now. I have an Orange cab and a Rockerverb 50 head. I am a fan of Blink, Tonight Alive TSSF, Neck Deep, Rancid, etc. Also lets not forget about the 2 Mega Bands of this 2000 era, Creed and Nickleback. I am starting to save money for pedals but I don't know what I should get or look for to get that pop punk sound. I am getting a ChadderBox Loud/Louder, but what other kind of pedals would you guys suggest? Any help would be appreciated greatly!

Cheers
Andy

Get a tube screamer (or clone) to use as a boost and burn all of your creed/nickelback CD's and shirts.
Even if you only burn the stuff you'll be sitting way better

i like creed and (older) nickelback

seriously, +1 on the ts (or sd1) as a boost.

do you have a link to the chadderbox? not familiar with it, just in case it's a ts clone or similar already

i don't really hear too many other effects in most of that pop punk stuff but i could be wrong

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.

I enjoy some Creed and liked Nickelback's Silver Side Up album back in the day. I actually still think it's pretty decent. Guilty pleasure?

Having said that, Tremonti uses phaser and wah often and even has his own sig models. Apart from that a delay wouldn't hurt either. I don't really know the other bands but the genre doesn't really call for pedals to be honest. It's usually either a clean or dirty sound. If you want more help post some song examples for reference.

I'm gonna hijack this thread and pose a few questions I have. Is there an advantage to using an OD for a boost? Also, wouldn't it be important to know if the OP plays guitar for a band? It seems to be that the boost would be useless if the owner is always playing alone.

1 it will help thicken your tone and make it punchier with a tad more gain, but it tends to not mush out and make the gain muddy.

2 a boost is just as useful playing alone and adds a little umph to the sound.

what rob said. i play at low volumes and I find a boost super useful. maybe more so than when playing louder as it helps with saturation etc.

I dream of being in a punk band and only needing a marshall and a ts

It happens too often where I'll be listening to a band that I grew up to ie millencolin, go wikipedia them only to find they used zero effects, just wrote great songs. Rock-on 90s punk bands

We had a guy in the band admit that he liked Nickelback. We immediately started looking for his replacement.


And when you get here we'll jam out on some Sex Pistols.

It's the slide guitar that gets us the Rose Tattoo association. There's a healthy dose of The Cosmic Psychos influence in there too. We're big fans of both the Pistols and the Psychos but the influence of Pete Wells (Rose Tattoo's slide guitarist) on my playing is unmistakable.

But then you would actually have to listen to Creed and that alone would ruin the game
