ok so i have a multieffect pedal digitech rp50, its sounded good enough when i was starting to play guitar, but im beginning to understand, that the tone isnt very good, should i buy pedals separately, like boss DS-1 and a wah or should i save some money for a new amp? i'm currently using a MG10 marshall amp, i know its not good but its a practice amp and when i buy the pedals separately i will have them for a long time.

thanks

New amp, no amount of pedals will stop your amp sounding like ass so it's pointless buying them.

Mine usally takes about 40-50mins. Just leave it while you do somthing else. What you choose to do in 40 minutes is completley up to you, but I usally carve small aniamls made from pieces of coal.


Whos takes 50minutes? seriously

Peavey, or behringer, anything with 1x10or1x12in speaker and some 2 channels, it will last you even for gigging

check out a nice combo, something 2X12 would be great for rock/metal giving you a great bottom end.

if your amp sucks, even a PRS isn't going to make a hell of a difference. but I don't especially like multi-effects units. I don't think they sound good at all, unless you're investing the cash into a Rocktron Prophecy, or even the Chameleon (to a lesser degree). my first effects unit was a zoom pedal which was crap, then I bought the mid-class digitech rp unit off a friend who did a mega upgrade to a prophecy and didn't really like that much either. after that, I just gave up on multi-effects units. in 99% of the case, you get what you pay for with those.

but I'm pretty much clean player now. I own very few effects currently. I have some basics like comp and noise gate. I plan to pick up a bad horsie wah at some point, but there's no rush. I just like that it's spring triggered. I can't believe dunlop still uses those crappy switches on thier wahs.

When it comes to something like that where you aren't doing gigs, just play a bunch of amps that you hear good things about. But also keep in mind its not hard to find somebody who will say good things about a particular amp. I mean some people have actually defended MG's( no offense) and a lot of people give it 9's and 10's in reviews. Just be aware....if you really wanna have a good tone...pedals or not, your going to have to be prepared to shell out some cash.

I cant believe I am going to say this...but for a budget and a decent amount of tones the spider III isnt terrible...the spider II is however. I wont ever suggest a line 6 again....I feel so dirty.

Also take a good look at Peavey possibly...

I agree. Also, your abilities on guitar can make even crappy amps shine. On the downside, it can make a great amp suck too. Peavey has a decent line out now. I have a Peavey amp and it is durable and sounds good.
