Picking up my Hot Rod Deluxe tomorrow. I am so excited, this will be my first guitar amp, and I've played for about 7 months now. I've been using a behringer keyboard/pa amp for the past 6 months lol. Just curious, I love the amp, but Im curious, how much will this really improve my sound, and I'm thinking of picking up a tubescreamer or boss ds-2, i think its called, or if i see something better. Suggestions?

It should improve your sound a lot. The Boss DS-2 is a good pedal, from what I've heard. But what kind of music do you play?

rhcp, some petrucciesque things, mainly alt rock stuff, but i'm getting more into the prog rock/metal dream theater type stuff, and i know im getting a fender amp lol, but its just cause i love the clean channel, and i figure 1 or 2 pedals wont hurt anything.

If you want petrucci's tone, Youtube search "Psycho Excercises 4" and watch it, I'm too lazy to find it.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

ive seen those, theyre soooo funny, but i dont want his tone, i want to develop my own sound, i just want a good dist/overdrive that can go into that prog territory, using the hot rod, i dont want a different amp, so the pedal will basically have to work as the overdrive/dist "channel" persay.

The DS-2 should be good for most of that kind of stuff.

Your sound will sound SO much better, and I'd go with the tubescreamer over the boss.

I've actually never played with a Tubescreamer but I might go looking for one later for my Hot Rod. Can anyone tell me like what kind of sound I would get with the Tubescreamer. Sorry, don't mean to be a thread jacker
