I have been playing guitar for a few years, all self taught, and am getting am starting to get discuraged because of my sound. I view my self as a decent player but i dont think i sound too good. I am having a hard time finding the right tone for songs and even tho i might be a little bit off it sounds completly diffrent while playing with the song? I have tried figuring out what they are but the more i mess with them the worse they sound because i cannot identify what is changing the tone. What did you do to help you learn how to figure out tones? How much of the tone is contrubuted from the amp? (not specifig just general ballpark effects).

I am useing a schecter c-1 artist, RP350, crybaby wah, and Behringer GMX210 <- prob need a new amp

Thanks

get a quality amp and you will have trouble getting a bad sound out of it. (thats hyperbole, but still you get what i mean)

you are incorrect, the digitech multieffects processor is your problem. a good amp would definitly improve your sound, but get rid of that pedal and get an overdrive or distortion, or some other effect you really like. what kind of music do you play?

Mainly sabbath, metallica, maiden and someother stuff but i dont want to be stuck with only hard rock/metal pedals when i want to play stuff like fuel and the not so hard rock.

i would check out that visual sound jekyll and hyde distortion pedal. its a distortion and overdrive in one, theres a button for each, and you can use both at the same time. so you can play your metallica with really heavy distortion, you can play your fuel, or you can play with the overdrive and have some nice crunch
