OK, so I am just getting back into playing heavy again, mostly acoustic with friends but I have a Gibson Blueshawk I bought about 9 years ago that I haven't touched in a while and I'm going to put new strings on it and start playing it again.
I have a Marshall combo I bought about 10 years ago and going to pick up some pedals.
Looking for input for first pedals, I'm guessing something like the old ts-9 for overdrive and maybe a decent wah, does this sound wise?
Any input? I always liked playing with the old Zoom efx procesors a long time ago, and was thinking about picking up a ZOOM G2 to use for tuner, beat/bass machine to play along with, and effects processor, picking one up used for $60-80 seems like a steel for all that stuff.
Any good input?

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

Can't remember, its like a 20w, sounds pretty nice and only cost somewhere around $150 at the time new, pretty sure there are no tubes in it

im just asking because youd probably be better off with a small tube amp than an overdrive pedal. maybe you should try out those 100 dollar 5 watt tube amps.

I have a Zoom G2.1U myself. Note that it doesn't have bass, only drums. However, I'd say the tuner is pretty usable (although the screen is very limited - the tuner is easy to use). The effects are pretty good except for the distortions - you can get some decent recording tones if you layer them a bit and fiddle with an EQ pedal, but as long as you don't use it for amp modelling (only for other effects), it's a steal for that price.

My amp is a Marshall GR15CD


yeah, forget about the pedals and buy a Crate V8 like a guy above me suggested. Then from there, start looking at a Ts-9 or a wah, etc.

ok, thanks guys!


Yeah, the Crate will blow your Marshall out of the water and then some. You will be very happy I think, though, I must ask, what kind of music do you play?

I like to play allot of different stuff, some jazzy stuff, classic rock, metal, techno crap, whatever.
