Hi.

I have currently have a
Gibson Les Paul Studio
and an Ibanez Rg2ex1

My amp is a Roland Micro Cube


I plan on buying this amp in the near future.

So that amp will give me the ability to get a nice bluesy tone.

but the thing is, all I currently play right now because I'm a begginer is songs by bands like

Avenged Sevenfold
Bullet For My Valentine
Atreyu
Coheed and Cambria
Once I get better I plan to play blues.
I have only played 3 months.


My birthday is coming up this month.
So, I'm going for that amp, and pedals for distortion.


Which distortion pedal should I get a distortion pedal to get an a7x tone?

and for multi-effects.

I read in Guitar World that Syn uses Frantones "The Sweet" Distortion, but it's kinda pricey.

If you play mostly that kinda stuff, I wouldn't get an amp that's made for blues.
Pedals can only do so much.
I'd recommend getting a Marshall JCM combo, or maybe a Laney VC50 if you can find it.
Those things (with a boost pedal) can cover hard rock/metal through to blues comfortably.

EDIT: And for multieffects, I'd recommend the Tone Lab, only because I was never a fan of the POD.
If you had money to burn, I'd strongly recommend the Laney VC50 with a Boss GT-8 as your effects pedal. It'd cover pretty much every genre you could ever dream of playing.

For what you are going to spend on a Multi fx, it would be better just to get a better amp.


The Super Champ is 300 bucks, plus about 300-400 for the multi-fx. That gives you seven hundred dollars.

Get a nice tube amplifier, and then build your pedal board.

EDIT: Where in California do you live?

well the thing is.
I'm not purchasing any of this stuff myself.

my birthday is this month.
and my family is split.
So my gaurdian is getting me the amp.
my dad will get the multi effects
and mom will get me any pedal i want.

i can't combine all of it and get some super amazing amp.

and i have only been playing 3 months.

Here's an Idea for you: sell one of your guitars (whichever you like less) and buy a new amp with the money.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40
Adam S3A monitors

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Dude, you probably won't use a quarter of the effects on the pedal.


If they have to split, grab a Valvetronix and a new axe.
