i know this has been asked countless times but does a boss me 50 represent better value and ease of operation to a first time purcheser of fx or should i just buy individual effects. The only problem is a decent wah costs £100.00 plus and distortion,compression and everything else costs over £50.00 each.
if you dont like me kiss my arss

multi-effects is good for a beginner, as it allows you to mess around, figure out what you like, and once you do, you can start switching out for single effects.

I have a Zoom G2 that I loved to play around with when I first got it - sounded pretty good with 2 Solid State Amps I own... then I bought a couple of old vintage tube amps and it sounded downright crappy. I bought a tubescreamer and IT LOVES my tube amps - also picked up a Boss DS-1 for distortion but ain't happy with it. I'm gonna have to pay the price and maybe pick up a Proco RAT or just stick to SS amps for my metal "fix". The Boss sounds too "tinny" - I want a Dual Rectifier on a Painter's budget
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!

Me-50 is a pretty decent multiFX. It certainly isn't cutting edge in any way any more, but stll very useable and versatile. And it's not horribly complicated to use either like the GT-8.

i dont like MFX. they sound like digital crap imo. i stick to single pedals.

on his budget, can he afford many at all? he didn't give an exact one, but it seems fairly limited.
