Recommendations for Effects Pedals

I've been toying with the idea of adding a multi-effects pedal to the gear. I don't want to buy individual stomp boxes & pedals for each effect, but have been looking at a BOSS ME-25 as a reasonably economical combo. There are so many choices, so I'd appreciate some advice from y'all about this. I'd like to keep it under $500 total, for a ceiling to work under.

Please state why you'd recommend one over another, thinking about reliability, effects range, sound quality ... stuff like that. Thanks in advance!

Re: Recommendations for Effects Pedals

hi TF, i've been playing a Boss ME50 for a few years now and i'm still finding new FX and sounds. i think russ harding also uses the same, it gives crunch, volume, echo/reverb, chorus and flange and many others too including a 3 channel EQ. so if the 25 is as good then go get it floyd

Or you could pick up a VOX Tonelab   http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ToneLabEX/   only 300 bucks and its Tube driven. smile

The Boss is excelent also.  So go back to the standard replylolol Go to a store and start playing with them to wee what you like best.

Re: Recommendations for Effects Pedals

I have an older digitech. It seems like I always end up going back to a good old fashion overdrive pedal in the end.

Re: Recommendations for Effects Pedals

Thanks for the help, my friends;

I hadn't seen the previous discussion started by Amy, so appreciate the link ... all good info. After playing a few yesterday, it looks like the BOSS will be the winner, but I'm moving up from the ME-25 to the ME-70 (http://www.long-mcquade.com/products/12 … cessor.htm). It's got a few more options that I may never need, but too much is better than not enough.

Good stuff, Chordie ... thanks!
