What is the best setup type to use for effects if you are using a direct box into a PA? Right now the setup I have is as follows: Mark Tremonti Power Wah -> TS7 -> Boss Ds-1 (modded) -> Boss CE-5 -> Boss DD-6

The distortion sounds not so good and I have to use the boss as a boost cause its so bad, any suggestions on gear to make this sound better? Basically if there is a distortion pedal/eq/compressor to solve this problem I'd like some suggestions.

Buying an amp and micing it over the PA is out of the question, I just don't have the funds and it's really hard.

Sounds I need to have: Floydish Lead Work, Blues, Crunchy Rock Rhythm, Clean Chorus, Heavy Sounding Punk Distortion

First off tubescreamers are for tube amps arent they, second id try a couple of digitech distortions thrugh your type of setup and get the one you like. A slight comp might make your boss dist sound better, id keep that in mind.

Take some of your stuff like guitar and pedals to a guitar store (if they let you) and have a play with some other pedals to see if they fit.

hope that helps.

id suggest a something thats made for that, single pedals arent.

Id try a line 6 pod of some sort
Whats the longest word?

that setup is not ment for direct out..

For that you wpuld need an amp modellor with speaker emulation like the Tech21 sansamp or the damage control demonizer..
