I'm debating wether to get the lowest GT model (3?) that has amp-channel switching. I heard all of those things kick ass pretty much, and if i can figure out when they started implementing channel changing...and if i can use the 4 cable method.

dam I have like a garage worth of efx , but if i have to limit them to a few the G major and a good wah would probably suffice , Im currently using the dime bag wah I have a Zakk but to be honest I like the Dime better. The g major for the money has great delays , chorus , pitch shifting among other shit and is easy to use . U need a good ground controler such as a GCX to make it really workable live.

Boss MT2 - Decent distortion that is hard as hell to get a decent sound out of.

Boss MD2 - This pedal seems to be made for that low end sound, I don't like it too much.

Boss DD3 - My delay pedal of choice, I have used a DD5 and prefer the DD3. Reverse delay isn't really all that great.

Ibanez Weeping Demon - Great wah pedal with some unique features. I use this thing way too much.

Morley Saphire flanger - Pretty weak flanger with a somewhat muddy sound.

Boss NS2 - One of my favorite, but least used pedals.

That's my current pedal setup.

I use a ISP,

a GE-7 in my amp loop,

and, no flames please, a Boss GT-8 between both my amp ( Randall Cyclone ) input and in its loop.

The Gt-8 about requires a engineering degree to use but is very tweekable. It is like a rack at floor level and the best *cough* I hate to say it, MULTIEFFCTS floor effects I've ever tried.

no flames for a gt-8. those things are nice. it's when you get the kids bragging about their rp100's.

Yea dode, RP's are made to proform though.

Thanks for the props on the GT-8, I'm still really freaked out at how much and how adjustable it can be. I've had it about 2 mounths and I still am tweeking shit. I can still use my Amps pre and switch between the 2 channels or combine it with the GT-8's preamps not to mention the other crazy ass things it can do.

But, I do warn. If you can't stand tweeking or reading then DO NOT USE this thing. You could spend years trying to figure it out.

FYI, the BOSS GT-pro rack mount has major output bugs and has no firmware updates, nor are any being looked into. The GT-8 has update 1.02 that fixes those output clocking problems. I have heard from people that they love the GT-8 but wouldn't piss on the GT-pro after owning both. Roland needs to do something about the GT-pro or they will lose a lot of money. GT-8 does not have as many loops as the pro but it cost much less and sounds far far better.

For digital, Boss did a great job with the GT-8, imo. Very real and very loud or at least far better then anything else like it.

i dont understand what you guys use all that distortion pedals and stuff for..

how could a pedal for a couple of dollars replace the distortion of an amp that costs a lot more in a better way? especially when using a tube head?
before i got my powerball i used an H&K attax 100, and i didn't want to replace the distortion by any cheap pedal..

effect stuff, ok, but distortion?

it depends on the amp. some amps have horrid distortion, and in some cases almost no distortion.

if i were playing a jc-120 or a fender twin. i'd need a pedal or external preamp for my gain sources.

if i were jamming a jcm 800, i'd need a boost pedal because they arent packed full of gain.

then you get plain ol' shit amps, that just sound horrid.

of course in any of these cases, i stray from anything with the words metal attatched to it.

The way I use my distortion pedal is this way . I use it on the clean channel , currently Im using a Digitech DF-7 pedal . Lets for example say Im on the clean channel and im doing this chordal thing and I want to start something brewtal , Well I could kick into my ultra gain channel ,or I can simply step on the pedal and riff away. I set my DF-7 to sound different than my ultra gain.Simply put its just another tone option. Also on occasion Ill use a Zakk overdrive on the gain channel , but you better remember to click it off when you stop cause it will feed back like a bitch.
Im using either a Marshall DSL 100 or a Koch Powertone II.

Because alot of people cant play on their amp late at night or in the middle of the day in fact or use it for direct recording. Multi-effects pedals offer alot of options & you can get incredible distortions that an amp just cant produce.

You can get a Boss Metal Zone for $99.99 new (cheaper on ebay) its not a bad pedal, youll probably want a EQ to go with it though & it takes some messing with to get rid of massive feedback with high gain.

You need to buy an overdrive pedal of boost pedal. and run it over the distortion channel of your amp

as i said before... as a rule of thumb. stay away from any thing that says metal on it(metalzone, death metal, metal master, ubermetal, ect..)

or you could save up and buy at least a decent amp.

I'm just gonna post in this cuz I'm not gonna start a new thread. What's like the best Crybaby that's the cheapest? I'm thinking of either the Original Crybaby or the Crybaby Classic. And what is a Fasel inductor?

i got a seymour duncan pickup booster the other day, really makes that thin single coil little '59 sound like a humbucker, it works really well giving you pure flat eq'd gain rather than shitty toned metal(insert here) pedals.

I need some help with my CS-3. When i first got it, i thought the sustain was great. But then, my friend(?) came and mixed everything up. Does anyone of you have any idea about any settings for it?

What? Sustain is great but friend(?) changed that ideal by mixing everything up? What are you talking about? Nothing is ideal. Its music. Make it happen.

Remember, most of all, this is fun. Enjoy.

I got a Zoom GFX - 707 Processor for free, it's fucking amazing


Well... just don't step on it to hard. Some of its FXs can be desent, but I wouldn't trust it for much else. Be prepared to give it away for free to someone else, throw it out the window of a moving car, or use it as target practice within a month. I hope you find better uses for it then most others. I'm sure it can be used professionally for something but I didn't have the time to play with it.

Thats all I've got to say about Zoom.

Definetly man, Zoom has ok effects but o my god that thing is fragile. I have one and I decided to keep it because I really cant get jack shit for that thing. I got a boss Gt-8 and that thing is awesome. I don't really like the digitech counterpart because the effects sound a little more processed. I guess its not really a big deal but I like boss better overall.

Cool

the best over metal distortion I've ever used would have to be the DigiTech Metal Master, but I have yet to try their D-7 Distortion Factory, or the Line 6 UberMetal Pedal



and i just recently bought a new l'il overdrive pedal for $15 @ Guitar Center, an it kicks ass for blues

I have my digitech whammy pedal which Im getting re-acquainted with after finding the power supply. Ah the joys of diving on a fixed bridge. Harmony settings fucking blow though.

DS-1, DS-2, or you coudl use amp distortion boosted by a maxon od808... those should do you good.

When you don't have the money to buy new gear, and you only have shitty stuff, or you're a beginner, or etc., a Metal Zone is good enough. Not everyone can just get a new amp as easily as someone tells them to.

The smash box is a piece of shit.Why not get a bottle rocket or a guyatopne metal monster.or a decent preamp like a e530 or a Digitech,that you can add to later.

Digitech metal master is great. Ibanez stuff, unless you get like four pedals don't have enough gain at all.

i find that digitech just destroys your signal... digital stuff tends to shave off bits of the signal that analog wouldnt... makes your sound harder to modify with other gear after you put something digital into the line... that goes for line6 amps too =/

but hey, if you want your sound to be just like what the gear pumps out, then you're in buisness.
