First of all, sorry if this is the wrong forum, but my birthdays coming up and ive alwasy wanted pedals to add to my amp. Could you suggest a few good pedals that are almost a neccesity for all guitarists or a multi effects unit? If you could also post prices that would be much appreciated, and for the record, I've got a gibson les paul and fender deville 212 (dont know if you need this).

wah pedal, distortion pedal if needed, mm i like phasers but thats just me yeah all i have is dist. chorus phaser and wah delays are kool though u can get some decent effects for like around 30-50 dollars

If your running through a tube amp, don't get a distortion pedal. You want an overdrive pedal for it. Anyway, Im not too sure, because we dont know what kind of music you play. If you were just getting basics, I would probably say to get a Tube Scremer, and a Wah pedal of some kind...

A chorus pedal.
I've found that it really fills out both distortion and cleans.
But make sure it's a versatile pedal, meaning you can really control how much chorus you use, because too much with distortion (which isn't a lot) makes it sound bad.

first of all, damn nice guitar and amp second of all, in my experience, with that amp, and i have used it extensively, that you might want to get the following ( for and extremly kickass setup) first in line a Crybaby classic wah, then any distortion pedal ( try em and see what you like ) then a volume pedal, then any chorus/flange etc you want, then a dd6 delay. Lastly add a cs-3 comp. either at end of chain or in effects loop and BAM HOLY **** nice sounds. add a noise gate if this is too loud. I'm not really telling you pedals in specific, but what you should go for maybe one or 2 of these.

Why?? i have a tube amp.. I personally don't like overdrive.. Convince me otherwise for a overdrive pedal.. I've never heard it through a pedal only a ****ty ass amp like 12 watts.. But my main amp is a T30R Tube Guitar Research Amp.. 40 Watts.. I have a Zoom505II Which has lots of different distortion effects.. So why should i get an overdrive Pedal?? I am trying to get a vox wah wah pedal and a good distortion pedal.. Should I get an overdrive pedal instead... Pleaes tell me why?

ya I would either get a Boss BD-2 or an Ibanez tubescreamer, the TS808 would probably work best for your music tastes and with your amp.

edit: added a link for the bd-2

man, the threadstarter plays completely different music, with blues and classic rock you definitely want a more creamy sound that you can only get with overdrive.

jesus christ. With gear that good, why are you asking us what pedals to get? How long have you been playing?

I thought anyone with that good of gear would have enough sense to go to a store and try out some pedals...

Boss Blues Driver (BD-2) if you got a tube amp. that only overdrive.

But I THINK a standard pedal should have a Wah, delay, Chorus, And a noise gate if you play gigs or loud with lots of excess noise.

So a Boss Blues Driver-2 (for tube amp) Wah, Delay, Chorus and Noise gate
