hey im very close to buying a metal zone and a chorus stompbox but im wondering...would an effects board be better in the long run

the only effects i would ever really use would be distortion, chorus, delay and wah

is it more effecient to get just the board or find the seperate pedals...I mean the pedals would be way more customisable right?

(I was looking at a boss gt3 but it dosent look very customisable)

Definatelly go for separate pedals

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

Seperate pedals are going to be a lot more versatile then a multi effects pedal. The Multi effects is going to get you more effects for the money though.

i had a gnx3 and it was cool, but it had way to many effects for me to actually dial in and fine tune, kinda took the fun out of it for me....sadly i sold it and now i am down to compressor and the overdrive on my amp...

is there a major difference between the ds-1 and the mt-2


Yes. The DS-1 only sounds good if you have a good amp. The MT-2 doesn't sound good at all.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

so should I stop bidding...

Im only after if because my amp only switches from clean to boost when i use the footswitch and i hate the boost channel...oh and my guitar teacher gave it heaps of praise

Zoom makes multi effects pedals that I've become quite fond of. They give you a lot of effects to mix as you please. But generally, multi effects require a sacrifice of adjustability and often sound quality. But seeing as I use a ton of effects and don't have much money, multi effects suit me well.

If you're only going to use those few effects, I would just get the individual pedals.

And if you don't like the boost channel on your amp, an overdrive pedal could help out with that. A Boss SD-1 or a Maxon/Ibanez Tubescreamer would work as a boost to the drive channel to add some gain and possilby improve the sound quality.

well my guitar has a really sharp sound to it

so when i set the clean nice to compensate the boost goes all disgusting

so I was hoping that a chorus pedal will make my clean sound nice and the metal zone can replace my crappy boost channel

btw im into children of bodom, megadeth, ensiferum, norther, ozzy osbourne (I love the juicy chorus cleans) black label society, steve vai, stratovarius

so would a ds-1 suit me more than a metal zone?

Well, just any effects you want, always get singles. For the record, Boss is the way to go with both single pedals and FX proccessors and Line 6 makes some killer modeling pedals.
