Individual pedals will usually be better, so single stomp boxes

In terms of quality of effect, it's best to have separate pedals but it's also more convenient to just have one multi-effect pedal. Personally, with a good multi-effect pedal, you can't tell much of a difference.
mmmk.

when I use the multi-effects with my Vintage Tube Amps (2) they sound like crap - sound great with SS amps though (2 of those too) - on my tubers I now use a Tubescreamer and a Boss DS-1 and they sound great - so I'd say Multi with SS and single pedals with tubes...
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

I use an ME50 into an SD-1, which is my "sound" and the moment, it's amazing.

It all depends on where you play. If you expect to gig and play in front of people often, then definitely use single pedals, as they sound infinitely better. If you just plan on playing in your bedroom as a hobby, then multieffects will suit your needs.

If you have the cash for it or only need one or two effects, go for single effects pedals. If you're on a budget and want a lot of effects, go for the multi-effects pedals.

basically, yeah.

once you get up to big prices though, single pedals will be better. unless you want to go with rack fx.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
