Right need some help, I am just starting to get back into playing guitar again as I lost all motivation in teaching myself as I was getting no further but I have a tutor now and I feel I am making steady improvements. Any thats not the point just bought an electric guitar last week just a starter one a behringer USB one but I am looking to get an effects pedal for it, I am have a price range of £60 as I am just really a beginner I dont want to be going out spending a fortune just now. Can anyone recommend some pedals for that price range?

Cheers in advance

do you have decent, switchable distortion on your amp? you might want to get a distortion pedal first.

www.musiciansfriend.com (look for drive amps)

Whats wrong with a marshall? I thought Marshalls were good amps. Remember I am a beginner and I am only playing at home not using it for gigs and have a limited budget. Point me in the direction of decent amp for the price range of £85.

Don't get an MG, I got a MG15 CDR now I have a Roland Cube 60 and the difference is amazing.

Marshall makes some of the best high end amps on the market. The lower end amps such as the MG series are cheap amps that cost more because the Marshall name tricks uninformed consumers into paying more for an inferior product due to brand recognition. You can get a much better sound out of the Vox Valvetronix series or Roland Cube series of amps. I don't know how many US Dollars a British Pound converts to these days so I can't recommend one that fits within your budget.

As for an effect pedal, I would suggest buying a nice overdrive pedal like the ts-808 Ibanez Tubescreamer. It will give you smooth overdrive. Professional musicians like Stevie Ray Vaughan have used this pedal, so you know it's pretty good

Cheers for the help with the amp guys. Lookslike I will be going with the roland cube fits my needs and is also £15 cheaper and also better than the one I was intending to go for.

Still unsure about the pedal, the ibanez one is a bit out of the price range. I can only go up to about £60 for one. Will ask for advice in my guitar store soundcontrol usually pretty helpful and arent bumping bastards.

He didn't say he would. He merely stated that it's used (well...was) by pros.
