kk I think I'm gonna get a boss distortion pedal, but i was wondering, what else is useful to have? I play a lot of 70's, 80's rock, psychedelic, glam metal, hard rock. Should i look into a flanger/phase shifter, reverb, and chorus? what about a wah wah pedal. And our volume pedals worth it?
look at a wah, then look into a flanger or phaser
It would depend on what kind of amp you have, but I'd say start with an OD, something like a bad monkey. The probably a wah, phase, delay and all that fun stuff. Best bet would probably be to go to GC and spend like two days there just trying everything and seeing what you like.
Definately get a distortion of some sort if u have an SS amp, or an OD if u have tubes. A reverb is almost a must for 80s glam stuff, and it sounds great in solos. An MXR Phase 90 would be good for your psychadelic stuff, along with a flanger maybe. I wouldnt get a chorus, as i find that they really arent used too much outside of Grunge and jangly stuff.
