Hi all, i know very little about amps and petals but recently i bought a Bc Rich warlock and im looking to getting a new pedal.

Currently i have a zoom606 multi affect and its not really doing my guitar justice. I also have a 10 Watt marchall amp but im more concerned with the petal.

Now i mainly play distortion but some other affects are cool. First of all should i stick with a multi petal or build up a pedal board?

With soooooo many different pedals what do i look for? What other advice could people give when choosing pedals?

Your Zoom 606 compliments your guitar and amp perfectly.

so im better off getting the individual pedals rather then an "all in one"?

Also which pedals are good? Theres so many, or do they all pretty much do the same thing?

I guess the main thing is distortion

Individual, analogue pedals generally sound alot better than multi-fx. Unless you've got a hell of a lot to spend on multi-fx that is.

Anyways, you should get a decent amp before you worry about pedals.

i guess it all depends on what type of music you play. i use a metal muff for metal of course. but if u like hard rock maybe like a distorion and a wah. im not sure exactly but thats what i would do.

a new amp will help your tone so much more than pedals. but for me, the best pedals in order would be:
1. wah
2. flange/phaser
3. Distortion/OD
4. Delay
5. chorus
6. tremolo

erm, is OD and distortion the same?
I have a Boss SD-2 OD. Any difference between the pedal OD and the amp OD?

sorry forgot to mention my budget.

Im looking at spending around £150.

Someone recommended the Marshall DSL401 but its way over the budget. How good are these amps anyway?
#16
I have a DSL401 and it's an amazing amp.
If you only have 150 pounds there's nothing really worthwhile that you can buy, that will dramatically improve your tone. If I were you I'd save up a few more hundred and get yourself a nice tube amp. You'll never regret it (As opposed to getting some pedal that you might regret in the future).
