i have the digitech rp-50 and the boss metal zone mt-2. both are great rock pedals. the rp-50 has forty factory presets and then another forty for customizble ones, so you've got your options. the boss pedal is also fully tweakable, giving you everything from fuzz, to straight up rock, to 70s arena rock to heavy metal. the rp-50 was like 60 bucks, and the boss metal zone mt-2 was like 100.

oh and by the way, nice avatar......

You should be more interested in getting better.

And I don't think they make pedals for that.

Unless its the MT-2...which hides all your sloppy-ness and missed notes behind a wall of thin, fuzzy, lifeless distortion.

^ besides the fact that the guitar player was sitting down and playing with no distortion and the drummer changed beats about 588435435 times just in the beginning and there wasnt a bass player...the chick was the best one lol.

"You could try a boss qs-3 queer/emo pedal"


Sorry, I said that to an emo kid who wanted to know what effects MCR uses. . .

I thought it bore repeating. . .

NO, BETTER YET, GET A MARSHLL MG!!! you can hide 100% of all your mistakes with their muddy distortion and crappy cleans, and people won't even notice that you suck

Subdecay Blackstar pedal. Absolutely incredible.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

ok i know that getting a pedal isnt gonna make me any better at playing guitar but as people have said it can cover up my sloppy guitar playing..so what pedal out of all the ones said would be best for a begginer like me then?

While a pedal doesn't make you a better player it may inspire you to practice or play more, hopefully leading to you improving.

Buy a good pedal, not just any old thing.

You can't go wrong with...

Ibanez/maxon ts-9 or ts-808
Visual Sound Jeckyll and Hyde
Sub-Decay stupid box, blackstar, tomato fuzz

All fuzz/od/distorsion type pedals.

You could also consider something like a Boss GE-7 equalizer pedal which not only shapes tone but gives you a boost too.
