what is the best effect pedal for ska? i need to buy something with a nice fat tone and a super-clean sound.
thats the thing. i have an awesome amp, but it isnt enough. i have 200 bucks, and a pedal is the easiest way out.
No pedal will give you what you need. Ska basslines are usually always clean, and as far as I know there is no pedal that will make a clean amp cleaner. Because, well, it's impossible.

YOU have to play with your tone on your AMP. There is no "easy way out" of anything. Especially in music.
If you said you need a super clean sound, why would you want effects???
