I have just resently bought a peavey jsx head and I was wondering what would be the best pedals to use to get the best out of it. I don't need any fancy modulation effects, just pedals that would help improve my tone and clean up my sound. I like to play harder music like protest and the fall of troy, and also at the drive-in and incubus. any suggestions?

OD pedal, reverb, and a delay to add some color to lead tones.

You didn't state a budget so I'm gonna pick some decent pedals

OD - Too many options here... TS-9, TS-808, OCD, Fulldrive, Bad Monkey.......
I'd say go with the fulldrive.

Reverb - EHX Holy Grail, or if you want to splurge you could try any of the higher end holy grails(holier grail, holiest grail, etc)

Delay - MXR Carbon Copy, awesome delay

Thanks, those all seem like decent pedals. what about a noisegate for feedback?

My TC Electronic Nova Delay sounds amazing in the fx loop of my JSX.

Also, the satchurator is great on the clean channel.

the tone knob is very sensitive. very sharp and trebly past noon.
i wasn't impressed when i tried it at a shop...with an ss amp, so what can i say...

Very true. That's my biggest issue with it.

But, really though, I'm only ever going to use it for a certain type of tone and just vary the amount of gain. Most of the tone knob is useless, but there's still a very useful, albeit small, sweep on it.

BBE Sonic Stomp through the loop. My JSX loves this pedal.

Seriously, the only thing you need, is an OD and an EQ, maybe reverb
Peavey XXX combo *upgraded screen resistors, Tung-Sol's, and 6L6's*
Schecter Syn Std. * modded, scalloped, and worn*
Schecter C-1 Elite *still sexy*
Ibanez AEL 12-string

Instead of Holy Grail get Holy Grail +, they fixed the reliability issues and it's slightly more versatile
