Well what do you need more, a more rock/metal-ish sound or a good tool for solos and such?

really a good tool for solos but a new distortion pedal would be good too. o and i'd get a crybaby but i used both pedals and i really thought that the morley was better.

i'm not a 100% sure what a boost pedal does but i think it just boosts the volume, tell me if im wrong.

Some give a dB boost to increase the volume. There are also some basic gain boosts.

go for the wah, personally i think the crybabys in that range are great, but if you prefer the other one its your money.

Edit: those distortion pedals arent that good, your amps distortion is probably better, what kind of amp do you have actually?

either way, still, wah is probably a better buy.

im guessing the marshall is an MG? Either way the krank and roland have great distortion, and if you just want to switch between clean and distortion you can get a foot switch cheaper(better buy too).

Go for the wah, the crybabys(and apparently the one you are after) are of great quality compared to those distortion pedals.

Edit: wrong on the marshall, your amps are pretty good, and they come with good distortion so I recommend you do the above, get the wah.

the pedal you mentioned wont be much better than roland cube's distortion, ive played them both, just yesterday in fact.

But yeah, footswitch and wah is what you should do.

I play guitar, although i play my friends bass from time to time.

I used to play on my brothers line 6 spider III (terrible I know)

I got a Line6 Valve 112 40w yesterday though, I paid half, my dad paid the other half as a birthday present(early too so kickass). I dont see anything wrong with these, the presets are still not that great, but thats why you can edit them, the cleans are much improved because its all tube.

Granted you probably have nicer equipment than mine, but thats what I play.

Oh and my guitar is an epiphone G-400, i did have a crappy squier but that finally decided that it didnt want to work anymore.

o cool my neighbor got the epiphone g-400 yesterday. I had a squier strat that i converted into a bass (my friends old bass guitar parts that i adjusted on my guitar) a dean v a six-string nylon acoustic and a 12-string steel string acoustic. For My birthday in a couple week my dad said he is going to buy me the jimmy page double neck sg (Gibson not Epiphone) its gonna kick ass on the marshall stack.

Damn, I wish I had the kind of money for one of those, even though I dont really need a 12 string.

Id like to see pics of that squier strat bass if you have any, sounds like a nice project.

I'm wondering what a 70's classic is half stack.. One that looks suspiciously like a Mode Four. Also wondering why your profile says you're 20. Trolling is fun sometimes. But when you actually need help and the truth comes out, like now... You're fecked.
These go to eleven...

Could be either, but pics sure would clear the whole thing up. Funny how the phone still isn't charged, AND the camera is broken. My money is on BS...

the only decent amp your profile "says" you have is a marshall 70s stack but you put a pic of a mode four, which was created in the 90s. i smell BS

if thats the case i suggest saving your money for an amp a little better than a Roland Cube you got there.
