I have Gibson Les Paul and a Marshall MG250DFX

I am thinking about getting some pedals and i was thinking about a dunlop original crybaby and a boss fz-5 fuzz pedal.

Was wondering if u could give me any suggestions on others or feedback on people who have used these pedals

thank you

BUY A NEW AMP, THAT RIG IS A DISGRACE

That is all.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

yeah, dude get rid of that mg, get a tube amp

Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Coming soon: Egnater Tweaker

amp dude if i were you i d save all my lovely money and get a nice tube amp cause trust me...used to own an mg100dfx...sucks and u wont get much better as a guitarist playing thru that...SOOOOOOOO a new amp with ur hard earned money...even the cheap 5w tube amps are a major upgrade tonewise from an mg....trust me cause i had to learn the hardway buying so many knick knacks for my mg...new pedals are just seasoning over a steak that isnt so good in the first place get a new juicy delicious steak

Once again massive help from three people who completely missed TS' question.

My cousin has a Dunlop Wah, and its amazing. Perfect for the Guns n Roses stuff.

epi valve junior or blackheart little giant or handsome devil...will do any classic rock very nice...i d say wait a month for the handsome devil cause it has separate drive and master volume...trust me these amps will change ur life...then if u go used u can get peavey valvekings which are kinda meh...then classic 30 which is a very good amp....then used marshalls which will be more expensive...liek jcm800 or other old models
#16
*goes on profile*

ok, false alarm boys, its an epiphone



TS: FYI: digital and fuzz dont go together too well, go for a big muff for fuzz

the original crybaby is mediocre for some things, but its generally ok

No, you don't need that much wattage. Valves are louder than SS amps.

Besides which, your MG250DFX is basically a glorified 50w amp.

A Laney VC30 is plently loud. Loud enough for gigging. It would be about the equvilent of 90-110w SS.

So get one. You'll do yourself a huge favour.

#22
ok so higher wattage...30 watt u ll NEVER crank unless ur gigging...30 w tube is more than ur amp now trust me...so i d say MAYBE epi classic 30 or the laney 30w that was recommended before me...if u want higher think jcm800 marshall....marshall high end...of course this is going out of ur budget so u d have to go used

they "missed the question" but they are right.

also do not get a boss FZ-5. because its awful
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I love how Kerry King has his own signature MG.


It made me chuckle and facepalm at the same time.

Hey, we were talking about how ****ty MGs were, right?


And that Boss Fuzz isn't getting the best "reviews", UG or otherwise. Why not like the Dallas Arbiter? It's about $100 USD.

dude


chill


its

the

internet


in case you didnt read my post, TS has an epiphone LP in his profile

i see 10 threads like this a day and frankly im sick of correcting nubz like this one, i thought i'd say my piece and carry on with my life

there are geniuses like you to assist with the amp situation, but i though i'd be nice and answer his question. i e FZ-5 is crap and GCB-95 isnt startlingly better

also: could you try to inject some intelligence into your posts please, youre just making yourself look stupider. try enter every now and then

Seriously, chillax a bit. For a start, the pounds part doesn't matter much when Stevo's from the UK....
Also, i don't wanna argue you've seen it happen, but Screamers and JCM800s going for £300 is pushing the boundary quite a lot. That'd be a gooood find.
Oh and for the record, don't replace all your punctuation with ellipsis please.
